Tengger Cavalry releasing new album ‘Cian Bi’ (watch a new video)
Tengger Cavalry, the NYC-via-China band who mix traditional Mongolian folk music and heavy metal, are releasing a new album this year. It's called Cian Bi and it drops on February 23 via Napalm Records (pre-order). In case you're unfamiliar with the band, a press release offers this succinct description: "With a mighty mix out of Mongolian overtone singing and violin empowered folk metal these New York mind blasters create something special and unique. Their nomadic fighting spirit helps to fuse unworldly cultures in harmony - and that's the spirit! Multi-cultural development, acceptance of diversity and individual freedom. With their music as a deputy: Distorted guitars and doublebass-blastings hit this very own singing style out of Central Asia. With the Mongolian horsehead fiddle aka Morin khuur these extremes got stick together to a thrilling sound."
We're premiering the video for the quasi-title track, "Cian Bi (Fight Your Darkness)," which is as crazy-sounding as you'd expect from this band. Watch below.
