Global Music Award-winning Nomadic Mongolian folk metal group TENGGER CAVALRY recently reissued two of their earlier albums originally released in 2013 and 2014, re-composed and instrumented. 2013's The Expedition was reissued as Cavalry In Thousands, and 2014's Ancient Call was reissed as Hymn Of The Earth. Both albums are available via Bandcamp now.
Each reissue features brand new melody compositions, vocal lines and re-recorded guitars. TENGGER CAVALRY frontman Nature Ganganbaigal states, "It has been years since I recorded the original versions of these reissue records. My life has changed a lot since then, and musically, I've changed too. I wanted to embrace more of the traditional music roots. I felt the original songs that I wrote years ago had the potential to be modified and improved, so I transformed the texture and melody, replacing death growling with throat singing, etc. The reissues represent the taste and status of this present moment of my life - my experiences, my emotions - bound with grassland."
TENGGER CAVALRY is currently on a headline tour of North America!
