Rising stars of Mongolian metal The Hu have released a trailer for their upcoming single The Great Chingiss Khan, which will be released this Friday.

The Great Chingiss Khan comes from the band's debut album The Gereg, which will be released on September 13m, and features the band's fusion of Mongolian sounds and western rock. 

The Hu's previous videos for Yuve Yuve YuWolf Totem and Shoog Shoog have racked up tens of millions of views.

Guitarist Temuulen, aka Temka, says: “When we do this, we try to spiritually express this beautiful thing about Mongolian music. We think we will talk to everyone's soul though our music."

The band have also released a video message for American fans, saying, "The Hu is so excited to see our American fans during our North American tour. We'll see you soon!"
