Tengger Cavalry Unveils New Album "Die On My Ride"

Bands that take on a "theme" often end up pigeonholing themselves, releasing album after album with the same overarching concept and sound.

When it came time to write and record upcoming full-length album, "Die On My Ride," Global Music Award-winning nomadic folk metal group Tengger Cavalry recognized the opportunity to expand on the band's exotic sound and lyrical explorations by delving into more personal, topical themes of racial discrimination, identity, equal rights, and freedom.

"Die On My Ride," which is scheduled to hit stores on June 2nd, 2017 via M-Theory Audio, delivers the potent, inimitable metal-meets-Mongolian/Central Asian world music sound that diehard Tengger Cavalry fans have come to know and love, while incorporating fresh styles and concepts that a whole new fanbase will enjoy. Listen to the brand new title track, "Die On My Ride," via the lyric video below.

"'Die On My Ride' is a rather different album than all of our previous releases," states Tengger Cavalry mastermind and frontman Nature G."This album reaches a more personal place for us. We discuss personal struggle surrounding identity conflicts, racial discrimination and individual freedoms. I think an important part of existing in modern society is learning to accept one another for who we are and embrace our differences, and to look beyond that to find a deeper connection between each race or ethnic group."

He goes on to say, "Coming from a different place and walking the line between the Mongolian music world and American music world is sometimes challenging for me. I see all kinds of stereotyping and people throwing hatred, prejudice and judgment at one other because of arrogance, insecurity or simply a lack of understanding. This creates a huge identity conflict for individuals. These concepts make up a lot of what this album is about. Being yourself, pushing past judgment from others, being strong and fighting for your individual freedoms."

Nature G continues, "Musically, I intentionally tried to incorporate more clean vocal choruses, semitones and western minor scales, rather than stick just within our traditional Mongolian folk style. We also incorporated piano to add a more emotional element to the songs."
