Tengger Cavalry have just graced us with their new hard-hitting track “Heart”. Having already made a name for themselves by featuring in the likes of Billboard, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal, the band’s return has been highly-anticipated by fans around the globe. Based in New York City, the band’s vast array of influences has made for a very worldly, unique sound unlike anything you have heard before. Their sound combines elements of traditional Mongolian music and Tibetan throat singing with heavy metal and folk metal genres, which many now refer to as nomadic folk metal.
The band’s future was uncertain for a while, following an announcement that they had broken up this past February. However, this turned out to be a short hiatus, as the band’s leader Nature G took some time off to deal with mental health issues after falling into a severe depression, making the release pf this track all the more powerful. “Heart” is an unmatchable, mighty return for the band, which sees them battle these issues head-on in the track.
“Heart” will delight metal fans, and potentially introduce them to a new world of metal subgenres. The track’s forceful sound may come as a shock for an unfamiliar listener as it’s sound is unprecedented in a North American context, but is sure to captivate you, regardless of musical preference. In addition to its unique vocal, the track is also given an edge with its use of several Central Asian instruments. The elements of softness and hardness in the track beautifully compliment each other, effectively mimicking the human mind and human emotion.
Clocking in at 13:36, the track takes the listener on an epic journey, that offers a glimpse into the mind of Nature G, who has documented his battle in the track through an intense emotive vocal delivery. “Heart” is a forceful combat for a band who have established themselves as innovative genre-defying musicians.
