Taiwanese metal band CHTHONIC will finish out a momentous year in its career with two more extraordinary events: playing the annual New Years Eve concert in front of Presidents Hall and the release of the bands Mandarin theme for the 21st Century Fox Taiwan release of Freddy vs. Jason.

The New Years Eve show will also be broadcasted live by FTV (Formosa TV). Earlier this year, CHTHONIC won Best Rock Group award at the 14th annual Golden Melody Award, the biggest music award in Mandarin countries. The award was presented to the group by Taiwan's president Chen Shui-bian.

Though the Freddy vs. Jason film will not be released until January 22nd, CHTHONIC's theme single, 'Satans Horns' is set for release on December 30th. A music video for the track will combine footage of CHTHONIC and film clips for a truly horrifying visual experience.

CHTHONIC will be at the January 17 Freddy vs. Jason premier and press conference to promote the film. The band will also play a Freddy vs. Jason concert on January 31st at The Wall House Live in Taipei. The concert is free to anyone with a Freddy vs. Jason ticket stub.

The group made it's United States debut at the 2002 Metal Meltdown festival and returned that year for a performance at the Milwaukee Metalfest. There are no immediate plans for the band to return to the US as of now.
