In a Facebook post, Reynolds announced jokingly — in Chinese — that he wants to apply to become the lead singer of ChthoniC, Taiwan’s best-known death metal band.
On Jan. 16, the band’s lead vocalist, Freddy Lim (林昶佐), won a seat in the legislative elections to become a member of Taiwan’s next Legislative Yuan. [FULL STORY]
