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
05. Southern Cross
07. Broken Jade
08. Root Regeneration
10. Quell The Souls In Sing Ling Temple
