Chinese Heavy Metal

China's youth are really starting to rebel hard against the system with bands like VoodooKungFu leading the way. Their blend of Chinese traditional musical instruments, heavy guitar riffs and screaming in Mandarin creates a very progressive sound and pushes the envelope of 'Metal' even further. It's so interesting to see how a generation gap between parents and kids can be so far removed from each other. Anyone who is 40 yrs old and above would have been brought up with a mix of Communist and Confucian education, whereas the kids now have the internet as a tool of education.

Go HERE to see an excerpt from the recently released documentary, Global Metal. This clip focuses on China and how its Metal roots were sowed. A very interesting 14 min.
Thanks to the beautiful Veggie Heart for all the info and metal inspiration!
