Canadian folk metal act Mongol signed on with Sliptrick Records. The band, who just issued the new EP “Warrior Spirit,” will return to the studio to record the third full length effort entitled “The Return,” which will be issued later this year. The album will contain songs from “Warrior Spirit” as well. More information on that will be issued soon.
Forged in the frozen bowels of Edmonton, Alberta, Mongol pays homage to the Mongolian Empire of old. Blending heavy melodic riffs with an array of folk instruments and Asian harmonies, Mongol wield a sound as diverse as the nations the historical influences conquered. The unique sound has taken them on many exciting journeys, including co-headlining Mongolia’s first international metal festival, “Noise Metal Fest,” alongside folk metal icons, Nine Treasures, in 2014.
Since forming in 2009, Mongol has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with such acts as Arkona, Kalmah, Nekrogoblikon, Havok, and many more.
