Folk metal act, Mongol, pays homage to the Mongolian Empire of old. Blending heavy melodic riffs with an array of folk instruments. And Asian harmonies, Mongol wields a sound as diverse as the nations their historical influences conquered.
MONGOL stand poised to unleash their latest album ‘The Return’. It’s indeed inspired by an ancient Mongolian prophecy of the return of Genghis Khan. Lord of All the People Dwelling in Felt Tents, from his grave. In the album, on seeing the sorry state of the world today, Genghis seeks to remake it as the New World Khanate.
Lead guitarist Luke Barry (Zev) comments:
“We derived the band name, Mongol, from the fierce warriors of the Mongolian Steppe. To draw inspiration we have watched Mongolian films and read their oldest text “The Secret History of the Mongols” and other source material. In addition to this we have traveled to Mongolia and spent some time there, which was a great wellspring of inspiration.”
“The Return” is due out via Sliptrick Records on October 5th, 2018. You guys can pre-order the record here: https://slptr.com/monpre
