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.
