The guide to Chinese post-black metal

China has amassed a rich catalogue of black metal artists since the emergence of early bands such as Ritual Day and Zuriaake. The artists within the country by no means stick to convention, with those two examples pushing folklore and traditional instruments into their musical output. It’s unsurprising, then, that the relatively new paradigm shift in black metal – either going post – or adding shoegaze dynamics, has also been adopted by the country’s artists.

Like the many atmospheric or depressive one-man bands across the world, the Chinese acts are just studio projects. Songyang Liu of Shaanxi Province’s Rusty Lake says, “Although we wanted to bring the songs to the stage, suitable musicians are not so easy to find, so we only write songs and record them.”
