閃靈登華盛頓郵報 為台灣自由與歷史發聲

補一篇8/23的新聞:閃靈登上Washington Post,而且是全版的報導喔!

A Voice for Taiwan's Freedom, History

自由時報相關報導:
閃靈登華盛頓郵報 為台灣自由與歷史發聲

如同 WaPo 報導第一段所言,沒有那個重金屬搖滾樂團體(或任何其他團體吧!)可以同時在音樂表演場所和華盛頓DC的國家記者俱樂部現身:

Not a lot of metal bands appear at both Jaxx nightclub and the National Press Club, but Chthonic will be doing just that,with appearances at Springfield's Jaxx on Monday and Sept. 13. The latter date is also when the Taiwanese ensemble holds a downtown news conference to discuss its "UNlimited Taiwan" campaign as well as its experience as the first Asian extreme metal act to take part in the Ozzfest tour -- an appropriate showcase for a band called "the Black Sabbath of Asia."

也很少有團體可以同時將理念與音樂創作結合得這麼好,獲得樂迷的好評,還可以登上洛杉磯時報、華盛頓郵報,紐約時報,以及國際論壇先鋒報。我從不聽黑死金屬音樂開始,已經變成每天追蹤閃靈新聞的粉絲。從搬到米國來開始一點一點幫忙台灣做小小的草根外交工作以來,媒體能見度一直是一大考驗,閃靈的出現,彷彿奇蹟。一個閃靈,勝過千千萬萬個類似克萊兒這樣的人啊!

感謝閃靈為台灣發聲,讓台灣問題的能見度大幅在國際媒體提升。感謝你們。
