Tengger Cavalry, or "the army of sky god", is not only a Billboard-featured metal band, but also a symbol of nomadic warrior spirit that connects fans from all over the world. With a mix of throat singing, Mongolian fiddle and Central Asian instruments, the band performed a sold out concert at Carnegie Hall and featured in CNN, New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.

Since forming in 2010, TENGGER CAVALRY successfully completed two headlining tours across over 40 cities of North America, and performed at legendary venues such as The Marlin Room at Webster Hall and Whisky a Go Go.

In the studio, meanwhile, the group's output has been prodigious - to date, they've released five full-length albums, two EPs and numerous singles, including unique cover interpretations of classics. On January 22th 2017, Dave Mustaine retweeted the band’s cover song of Symphony of Destruction. On December 13th 2016, the official Motorhead Facebook reposted the band’s cover song of Fight.

Select praise for TENGGER CAVALRY:

“Heavy thrash riffs mingle with black metal bombast and sinewy Eastern melodies, throat singing, frame drum, shaman bells, death growls (and) Mongolian fiddle...” – Noisey

“Deeply influenced by the nomadic culture of north Asia, TENGGER CAVALRY's music evokes ancient times when wandering warriors, steeds and wolves danced across the great grasslands. The melody of horse-head fiddle, the rhythm of heavy drum, the echo of Mongolian throat singing and the distortion of guitar all create an expressive scene of pagan culture.” – The Guardian

“Mongolian culture – battle-ready yet profoundly in tune with both nature and the spirit world – lends itself readily to a metal aesthetic... (the band's) roar and driving rhythms provide an excellent musical language for conveying the free and indomitable spirit of the untamed grasslands.” – Village Voice

“Ambitious and exotic... a neat balance of world music and metallic bombast.” – Metal Hammer
