This is one of the most original releases I've ever came across. Tengger Cavalry is an one-man project from China led by 张天然, who's interested in Mongolian culture, shamanism and Tengrianism (the Altaic paganism). The music is blackened folk metal with some elements of traditional Mongolian throat singing. Really interesting stuff, but this EP is way too short... However, a full-length album titled "Blood Sacrifice Shaman" was released a couple of months ago - but unfortunately I haven't found it anywhere.

  1. I discovered Tengger Cavalry not too long ago and immediately found their music enjoyable. I dig their usage of traditional instruments, which gives more quality to their songs.
