Prophecy Productions is proud to announce the signing of Swedish post-hardcore band Tengil. 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 debut, "shouldhavebeens", this April.
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 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".
While the band tabs itself as "a spiritual task, an impulsion to through music tell the story of moments passing you by, the longing to live and die at the same time, to always be both among and in flames," the most accurate assessment would be to let the music, itself, do the talking. And talk it will once "shouldhavebeens" is unleashed upon the world this April. The record is advanced by the single "It's All for Springtime", which can be heard here:
