Experimental Folk Metal Collaborative Release: Guren x Death to Giants [Shanghai/Mongolia]

Back in 2013, Shanghai-based bass-drums death-pop duo Death to Giants teamed up with Mongolian folk duo Guren for a series of live collaborative shows around Shanghai.

The quartet made its debut at the Mongol Arts and Culture Festival on October 20th, 2012 with a fully improvised set followed by another at Rock Naadam on June 26th, 2013.

To cap it off, the four musicians booked a recording space for a one-day improvisational session — the songs on this album are what came out of it.

Seven years later, Guren and Death to Giants release “23.6.2017,” a hypnotic celebration of what can happen when you bring a khoomei throat singer, a morin khuur player, a bassist, and a drummer together and allow them to simply wander where the music takes them.

The group will be donating all sales received from July 3 through July 5 to the NAACP’s Legal Defense & Education Fund.
