An introduction to the Chinese underground music scene

Intropic.jpg

China's music scene is a vibrant, lively and constantly changing hotpot of genres, fusion and explosions of sounds!

To make it easier for newcomers to get a glimpse on the scene and have some direction on where to start looking and what is out there to explore, the team of Rock in China has prepared a little guideline (a small introduction) on the Chinese music scene.

We are going to tell you a little bit about what happened in the past, what is ongoing right now, where you can find out more, where you will be able to listen to the music, how to connect to the bands and other fans and how to get to the venues!

Who's that band?

Suffocated 2010 hi res.jpg

Suffocated, 窒息, formed in August 1996 and starting into action in 1997, this quartet (in 1998) from Beijing is one of the few bands still playing death metal from the elder Chinese death metal generation. Nowadays, they are a popular live act performing fucking cool grooving mid-tempo death/thrash with excellent guitar solos.

They released two standard setting albums and can be seen as one of the best metal bands China has to offer. This year (2012) they just delivered an excellent live performance Wacken Open Air Festival 2012 on the Party stage, more oversea gigs will be planed next year.
