TENGIL'S FORTHCOMING DEBUT "SIX" (2015)


Written by: Greigh Johanson.

Tengil is a constellation of musicians from Borås, Sweden playing emotional, quasi-symphonic post-hardcore. With so many different influences in the band, they has a peculiar type of musical style evolved over the years based on the raw and aggressive hardcore. Not only Influenced by the post-rock scene, but also a lot of musicals and classical symphonies, hence the genre written above.





In a period they've recorded their debut album 'Six' which was released on the Japan-based record company Tokyo Jupiter Records (www.tokyojupiterrecords.com). The album is a concept album, a collection out of six newly written paragraphs that follow a non-linear narrative.


Six is a taint of something that you personally have to experience live, because I believe Tengil is a band that performs best on stage. This is a rate empathy and emotional journey that opens your mind and allows you to see through the darkest parts of a transmigration. Heavy adversity strikes setbacks and throw you over the tongue licking flames and allows you to feel the pain of the purest agony you can imagine - let me call it Blå Melankoli.

Honestly I don't know why they call themselves Tengil, I haven't done any further investigation about that, but I can imagine that the music is inspired by the greyish and tumultuous figure Tengil from Astrid Lindgren's children's book The Brothers Lionheart, and that they sympathize with the evil Tengil oppression.
