Neoshark - The Extreme Purgatory - Taiwanese metal
What we have here is an EP from a Taiwanese metal band called Neoshark who wear their influences on their sleeves. They're heavily influenced by Sepultura, Slipknot and Biohazard. The band's lyrics are mostly in Mandarin Chinese. The song Democracy Terrorist echoes Biotech is Godzilla in both sound and theme. The band are now known as Temple of the Brain although their Chinese band moniker is unchanged. The band see themselves as a Chinese band rather than a Taiwanese band so are unlikely to be confronting the UN any time soon.
