derekticon Awesome Chinese black metal concept album I've heard since....2015. Black Metal sound and art direction that sounds authentically Chinese - from theme, lyric and musical arrangement. 牛逼!! Favorite track: 投名状.

Andersdenkend China with its vast history may have had an enormous impact on the world, but its mark on the metal genre has been rather paltry. Until recently, when more and more bands emerged and one can see a consistent upwards trend in quality.

Black Kirin's album clearly shows, that the chinese catched up with the rest of the world. Their combination of melodies, brutality and chinese folk elements are a welcome addition to my library and I can't wait for more of these guys. Favorite track: 无双.

H.L. Each open-minded "Western World Metalhead" looking for exotic and dark metal tunes should turn his ears towards East and listen to BLACK KIRIN from China.

They manage to integrate folkloristic Chinese instruments and female singing in their solid symphonic black/death metal brew in a convincing manner. I have never heard a mixture like this before. There are bands with a similar approach, like Melechesh or Orphaned Land, but they have a different cultural background. Strange, but fascinating! Favorite track: 女恨.

Robert Paulovic Great music, great combination of black metal and chinese folklore.

But I cant recommend buying stuff from this guy. I waited for my ordered cd 4 months and recieved nothing. Thanks to paypal, I didnt lost my money. Favorite track: 启衅.

about

Black Kirin is a Chinese folk metal band that was formed in 2013 in Changchun, China. The band's original Chinese opera-folk metal style uses double vocals with a downtuned guitar sound, fast and complex guitar riffs and drumming with amazing opera-folk element which makes their music unique and fantastic.
