Ensiferum members Jukka-Pekka Miettinen and Sami Hinkka are featured on the special version of Takao, the new single from Taiwanese black metal band Chthonic.

This special version is included as a bonus track on the digital release of Takao, available on iTunes. A short teaser is available in the clip below.

Commented the band: "The melody of Takao's chorus is based on the tones of Taiwanese lyrics, but it's so unbelievable that when we try to single it in English, it sounds very Finnish, Irish, or generally European! Maybe the folk music in different nations have some kind of connection!"




"Takao" comes off of the band's upcoming new album, entitled Takasago Army, which will be released on July 6th through SPV Records.




Takasago Army tracklist:

01. The Island
02. Legacy Of The Seediq
03. Takao
04. Oceanquake
05. Southern Cross
06. Kaoru
07. Broken Jade
08. Root Regeneration
09. Mahakala
10. Quell The Souls In Sing Ling Temple

I wonder how they got together. Looking forward to the album, maybe I'll listen to the single as well knowing this now

They were both under the same Label, Spinefarm Records, probably they got them together.

The press release is right, that snippet does sound hella European, and GADDAMN that's some INTENSE cover art!
