Tengger Cavalry teaches the greatness of a unique sound symbiosis: With a mighty mix out of Mongolian overtone singing and violin empowered folk metal these New York mind blasters create something very special. The sixth record and Napalm Records' debut titled "Cian Bi" is set for a release on February 23rd 2018!
The band just premiered the video for the album's title track over at Brooklyn Vegan at this location, or more conveniently in the player above. Band mastermind Nature G informs us about the Cian Bi: "A tribe that originated from the grassland, and merged into the southern fields. A dynasty that progressed, diversified and innovated. A bloody road between Northern China and Mongolia."
Tengger Cavalry, or "the army of sky god," is not just a Billboard-featured metal band, but also the symbol of nomadic warrior spirit that connects fans from all over the world. Since the band formed in 2010, Tengger Cavalry successfully completed two headlining tours across over 40 cities of North America, performed at legendary venues such as The Marlin Room at Webster Hall or the Whisky a Go Go, a sold out show at Carnegie Hall and has been featured on CNN, the New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. To this date, the band has released five full-length albums, two EPs and numerous singles, including unique cover interpretations of classics such as Motorhead's "Fight."
"Cian Bi" stands for the name of an ancient nomadic tribe that immigrated into Northern China to merge cultural differences. The band's nomadic fighting spirit helps to fuse unworldly cultures in harmony - and that's the spirit! With music as a deputy: Distorted guitars and doublebass-blast beats hit this very own singing style out of Central Asia.
