Tengil is a constellation of musicians playing atmospheric, experimental heavy music that is at once nostalgic, quasi-symphonic and spiritually violent. The band will release its Prophecy Productions debut, shouldhavebeens, on April 13.
Tengil’s eye-opening musical style has developed from raw hardcore to an almost heavenly wall of aggressive sound. Commanding a mind-bending and dynamic meld of hardcore, rock, blackgaze and melody, Tengil weilds its wide-reaching range over varied tempos, electronics, and occasional pop moments executed with a raw energy that suggests a mash up of the Dillinger Escape Plan and Explosions in the Sky.
Despite its young age, Tengil as a collective has already performed over 50 concerts across Europe and released the full-length album Six (2015) as well as a slew of EPs and singles. Although its delivery and musical approach is very different, the inherent self-confidence and captivating creativity that Tengil shows on the upcoming LP, shouldhavebeens, calls for comparison to Alcest and its legendary debut Souvenirs D’un Autre Monde.
