Fu Xi - "In the Quiet Road" (2009)
This really came out of nowhere, I mean, no one really knows about any sort of a Chinese scene outside of Empylver and such. This is some wonderful folk/doom metal. The best way I could describe it is if Tenhi was from China and also liked distortion from time to time. Ethereal and wonderful.
Did I mention this album features extensive play of some of my favorite folk instruments, the erhu and the pipa? LOVE.
Blogger's note: This is better than the whole Pest Productions crew. Just saying.
