Enjoy Some Mongolian Metal At Lowbrow Palace Tonight!
If you think banjos and cellos aren't cool, you are VERY mistaken!
Ok, they're not exactly banjos and cellos but, whatever the hell they are, they're freakin' cool! The Hu are a killer blend of Hard Rock/Metal and traditional Mongolian throat singing.
Their website describes them this way:
The band’s name The HU, is the Mongolian root word for human being. They call their style “Hunnu Rock”…inspired by the Hunnu, an ancient Mongolian empire, known as The Huns in western culture. Some of the band’s lyrics include old Mongolian war cries and poetry.
Founded in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia by their producer Dashka, along with the members Gala, Jaya, Temka, and Enkush. The HU combines Rock Music with traditional Mongolian instrumentation like the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), Tumur Khuur (jaw harp), guttural throating singing and the bombastic bass and drums of rock.
Their latest song and video recently got a makeover with a little help from the band, From Ashes To New, check it out above and the original video below.
