Global Music Award-winning Nomadic Mongolian folk metal group TENGGER CAVALRY aren’t just all about history, heavy metal and cultural issues. Sometimes, the NYC-based quintet just wants to take time to enjoy themselves and have fun. TENGGER CAVALRY have let loose this month by recording not one, but two covers of tracks by punk-influenced pop star Avril Lavigne. Showcasing their ability to explore different influences while remaining true to their unique sound, TENGGER CAVALRY have unleashed their Mongolian metal version of the hit song, “My Happy Ending”. Watch the official video now via Alternative Press.
“My Happy Ending” follows the band’s release of another Avril Lavigne cover – “Sk8er Boi” – available now via iTunes.
TENGGER CAVALRY frontman Nature Ganganbaigal says: “Recording this track was one of the weirdest ideas I have ever had. Generally, I find that the metal community dislikes pop stuff a lot, but Avril, she does have some good hooks! “My Happy Ending” has some cool leads and I figured I could spin it around with some Morin Khuur and Mongolian fiddle. I also wanted to use this opportunity to experiment a bit with my clean vocal performance. But, all in all, we just did this for fun. We hope our fans like it!”
Stay tuned for details on new original music coming from TENGGER CAVALRY very soon.
