Tengger Cavalry breaks up

New York City "nomadic folk metal" band Tengger Cavalry will apparently be disbanding after roughly eight years together, and just days after the release of their new album, Cian Bi, through Napalm Records. Founder Nature Ganganbaigal has issued the following explanation:
"Within all these eight years, I have nothing but gratefulness to all your support. However, after consideration, I decide that Tengger Cavalry is officially dismissed. Yes, we are receiving good reviews, having fans and family to love us; getting the best support from Napalm Records. But what has been done to us in heart cannot be changed. "In a society forged by law, successfully winning the legal sabotage from an industry scumbag like Marco Barbieri, who claimed to formerly worked for Century Media Records and Metal Blade Records, who gave us a contract to claim all our publishing rights since 2010, maybe is a win. "In a society forged by business, successfully terminating a toxic relationship with Dawn M Robinson, who claimed to worked for Lady Gaga and Slash, who teamed up with this toxic label person and manipulated us to sign this fraud contract with Marco to give up everything, maybe is a good business. Yet for an artist, these are the biggest lose. For you have entrusted your heart and soul to these people, only to get them butcher you. "For an Asian immigrant, you cannot fight back, for the 'civilized' western people will point fingers at you and say: 'look, he does not understand our culture', 'He is too hard to work with' etc. I wanted to share my musical and nomadic culture experience with the world, yet the outcome somehow only comes back in a darker form. "I love you all and thank you all for your support for all these years."
