Hey,

You might want to give Screaming Savior a try: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqIsYhYZpEA

Similar sounding to Chthonic, please also try Anthelion

For pure awesomeness (is that even a word?) one of my favourite ever Chinese bands, Terminal Lost:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhXiD81qs6k although they do actually venture into melodic BM, but they are definitely worth a listen!

Hah, if you do want more recommendations from that side of the world in particular bands using folk/traditional instruments - but not necessarily symph BM - then drop me a message any time.

Darkestrah is gonna be your new favourite band. True Silk Road Black Metal :lol:

But really, they are superb - a plethora of symphonics, lots of folk influences, 110% EPIC!, one of the best vocalists in black metal, and a large discography to bite your teeth into. Please do search them out.

Oh! Also Tengger Cavalry, they're black metal with traditional throat singing. They are great as well.
