Got rhythm? Taiwanese thrashers Chthonic challenge fans with mobile game

Taiwanese extreme-metal band Chthonic’s latest album is in the bag, and while it’s being mixed in Sweden, the band is taking care of other business — notably, promoting its recent mobile game, Rhythm Crusher. It’s similar to other play-along games on the market, but it features Chthonic’s brutality and metal background art. And the band is promoting it in a unique, take-it-to-the-streets fashion.

After two shows in Japan, the band went to Rockaholic in Tokyo and challenged fans to the game via its versus mode. Though the winning fan did take home an iPad Mini, he was unable to defeat vocalist Freddy Lim.

Check out a few trailers for the game below, and get ready for the band’s new album, coming in June from Spinefarm.
