Episode Info: Episode 2 of METALHEAD POLITICS, a new show by Freddy Lim of Chthonic and Emily Y. Wu of Ghost Island Media. It’s been a hell of a month. Freddy and Emily open with positive updates from Taiwan (adultery is decriminalized; a pro-China populist mayor gets recalled) before diving into the topic of the day. They stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and examine systematic oppression in Asia. An estimated one-million people are still in concentration camps in Xinjiang. The Chinese Communist Party performs a force choke on Hong Kong with a National Security Law. Freddy deconstructs how “Millenia’s Faith Undone” went from Taiwanese lyrics to melody. He sings a children’s song, and introduces LMF (Lazy Mutha Fucka 大懶堂), a Cantonese hip-hop group from Hong Kong. Bonus: Freddy teaches Emily how to do a death growl.MUSIC LISTOriginal theme song by CJ;Intermission music “惡世紀 Century of Evil” by LMF (2019);Credit music “Millenia’s Faith Undone” by Chthonic from the album Battlefields of Asura (2018).Music numbers by Chthonic:2:32 “A Crimson Sky’s Command” from the album Battlefields of Asura (2018),10:11 “Takao” from the album Takasago Army (2011),35:25 “Millenia’s Faith Undone” from the album Battlefields of Asura (2018). Music numbers by CJ (keyboard of Chthonic) from the album UNR (2020) 00:52 “God”, 01:50 “The Dark Side”,04:25 “God”,13:13 “Save You”,18:52 “Hero”,20:42 “Save You”,26:09 “True E”,32:07 “Losing the Edge”.WEB | Chthonic | Ghost Island MediaFACEBOOK | Freddy Lim | Chthonic | Ghost Island Media TWITTER | @FreddyLim | @chthonictw | @ghostislandme | @emilyywuINSTAGRAM | @freddylimtt | @chthonictw | @ghostislandme | @emily.y.wuYOUTUBE | Chthonic | Ghost Island Media EPISODE CREDIT | Producers: Emily Y.
