Tengger Cavalry seem to be posting new stuff up all the time – definitely a busy band – but I’ve only recently noticed their covers. This Mongolian folk metal band (with the emphasis on “Mongolian” with many traditional instruments and vocal styles featuring in their songs) came to our attention some time ago and they’re very much still a unique act.
Dropping into our mailbox the other day was the band’s latest offering – a Mongolian version of Megadeth’s classic “Symphony of Destruction” from the album of the same name. Tengger Cavalry have dropped a load of their own sound into the mix, but otherwise the song does remain true to the original. It’s instantly recognisable, but also completely different.
