Mongolian folk metallers Tengger Cavalry release video for Cursed

Tengger Cavalry

Self-proclaimed ‘nomadic folk metal’ band Tengger Cavalry are premiering their new lyric video for Cursed exclusively with Metal Hammer.

Taken from the band’s upcoming album Die On My Ride, on sale June 2 via M-Theory Audio, vocalist Nature G says the song is about breaking the barrier.

“Society has always put up different mental and physical barriers, barring individuals just trying to achieve their dreams,” he says. “You are too short, you are minority, you are a female not a man, you are from somewhere else, you don’t look good enough. All these disadvantages that we think we are born with, are like a curse to us.

“Cursed, we are cursed for believing these barriers, aren’t we? No we are not. We need to break this barrier of belief. We need to strike it and claim who we are supposed to be. Cursed, or rise above the curse.”

Die On My Ride is available to pre-order on CD or as a download via Bandcamp.
