In a year that's critical to Taiwan's social reforms—and also the 20th anniversary of CHTHONIC—we've decided to hold an extraordinary concert!
We've received many letters from our young fans saying that CHTHONIC's music has empowered them, but actually, it's everyone's courage that has empowered us, making us more confident about ourselves and about Taiwan, and gave us more courage to move forward. Our music often recounts buried stories in Taiwan's history, which inspired and touched many young people; however, after so many years of pondering in writing these songs, we can also feel the soul in the Taiwanese that's unique and complicated. It's becoming more and more clear what we're on a quest for.
Taiwan is at its critical moment, and CHTHONIC has not had any large concert in three years. We therefore decided that, as this year marks the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, the 20th anniversary of CHTHONIC, and the key moment when Taiwan's reforms are about the unfold, we would like to organize CHTHONIC’s largest-ever concert in Taiwan, hoping that those who sacrificed themselves for Taiwan would rest in peace, keep Taiwan peace, and give a hand to the people to make their dreams come true. Through the concert, we also hope the young people would join their hands together to push Taiwan forward.
CHTHONIC has always believed that, a band is not only a band, and that music is not merely music—we will change the world!!!!!
About the Concert

Venue: Liberty Square in Taipei (MRT Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall station)
Public issue market starts at: 2:00pm
Concert starts at: 7:00pm
Performance: hardcore CHTHONIC metal, with folk and electronic music blended in.
The stage: better, heavier, and more powerful than any CHTHONIC concerts ever
Featured guests: TBA Question: Why Liberty Square?
Answer: the Liberty Square was dedicated to the dictator Chiang Kai-shek in the 20th century, and therefore is nicknamed “Chiang Kai-shek Temple” by many democracy pioneers, and an important gathering place for rallies. It is therefore the right place for the CHTHONIC's 20th anniversary concert.
Having a concert at Liberty Square is a symbolic move against authoritarianism, your participation is the most important.
Since it's impossible to sell tickets for a concert in Liberty Square, we decided to raise enough money for the concert through crowdfunding. The largest CHTHONIC concert can only become reality with your support.
CHTHONIC has put in everything that we would like to share with you, so we're also looking forward to having interactions this way, and we hope that everyone would feel our sincerity.
