Global music award-winning nomadic folk metal group Tengger Cavalry return with Die On My Ride which delivers the potent, inimitable metal-meets-Mongolian/Central Asian world music sound that diehard fans have come to know and love, while incorporating more personal, topical themes of racial discrimination, identity, equal rights and freedom. "Die On My Ride is a rather different album than all of our previous releases," states mastermind and frontman Nature G. "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."
As one of the most unique and innovative acts in modern music, Tengger Cavalry ("the army of the sky god" in Mongolian) blends the nomadic musical traditions, instrumentation and warrior spirit of Central Asia with the aggression and power of heavy metal. The group was founded by Nature "G" Ganganbaigal, who sings using the ancient Mongolian tradition of Khoomei (more commonly known as throat-singing) and plays multiple native instruments, including the Morin Khuur (an ancient fiddle), the Tovshuur (a Mongolian guitar) and the Mongolian flute.
Die On My Ride is Tengger Cavalry's first album available on the vinyl format, as well as their first album to be released with M-Theory Audio – the new label recently launched by Marco Barbieri, former president of Century Media Records and Nuclear Blast America.
