Chinese Metal Compilation ‘Dead Emperor’ Released

Dead Emperor ( 逝帝 ) is the new compilation album presented by Scholomance Webzine, delivering a unique spotlight to China’s musical culture. The album encompasses the region’s heritage and traditions, but also its modernity, diaspora, and diversity. The album focuses not only on Chinese-sounding bands who would rely only on its recognizable folkloric heritage, but instead to highlight the breadth of metal music coming from China.

It is difficult to pin down the Chinese musical style and community to a single “scene” due to the vastness of the territory, but also because of the impressive variety of genres found in the region. From shoegaze to extreme black metal, Buddhist to Satanic lyrical content, Dead Emperor presents a panoramic experience of some of the greatest bands based in China.

Scholomance Webzine did not hesitate to cross or even ignore political borders in this compilation in order to offer this selection of talented bands, which also includes artists from Hong Kong and Taiwan.

A colossal release with 26 full-length tracks in HD quality, Dead Emperor provides a staggering collection of music from this mysterious region of the world. Best of all, the album is available for streaming and download completely for free.
