Nature Ganganbaigal, founder and mastermind of Mongolian metal/folk outfit Tengger Cavalry, has reportedly passed away. The news comes via guitarist Patrick Reilly, who told MetalSucks, "We grew suspicious when he did not show up for a pre-show rehearsal last weekend. We also had a video shoot scheduled, so for him to miss that was a cause for suspicion."

Today, MetalSucks reports that authorities informed the band they found Ganganbaigal's body on June 13. No cause of death has been disclosed.

A statement from the band reads as follows:

"It is with deep sadness and shock that we must share the news that Nature has passed away. Nature's greatest goal in life was the unite people of all backgrounds through community and through music. He was also an advocate for mental health, and encouraged everyone from friends to total strangers to persist through their struggles. Though we have lost a dear friend and a great artists, we know that his music will live on and continue to help us find our common ground and find our strength despite adversity. Please respect the privacy of Nature's family during his painful time. May the Eternal Blue Sky find him at peace."
