Hailing from Beijing and Hohhot – two major cities located in northern China that share thousands of years of nomadic history – six Mongolian and Kazakh folk-influenced heavy metal bands have come together to provide a stampede of horseback-heavy sound – weaving an untold story of Chinese history that smashes public stereotypes.

Quote from Noisey Magazine:

"This compilation likely isn't aimed at fans of extreme metal; rather, like Tengger Cavalry, these outfits lean more towards the rock, metalcore, and even nu-metal side of the metal spectrum. Metallica and Korn are major points of inspiration (peep Kazakh outfit Nan's funky bass lines), and breakdowns and clean vocals are de rigeur (as in Liberation's polished metalcore).

Suld and Tengger Cavalry hew closest to the compilation's folk theme, with both opting to sing in their native Mongolian and utilize throat singing and traditional instruments; Sintas also channel their Kazakh heritage via native instruments (which work surprisingly well within the context of their Pink Floyd-influenced psych rock)."
