The HU Reveal Final Part Of Final Part Of Epic Single / Music Video ‘Black Thunder (Part Two)’

Compelling breakthrough Mongolian rock group The HU are excited to reveal the second part of their epic single/cinematic music video, ‘Black Thunder (Part Two)

Black Thunder (Part One)‘ was released in July and has since garnered over 1.4 million views. Revolver Magazine (7/8) lauded it as “another breathtaking slice of Mongolian folk-metal that has all of The HU‘s signature sonic tenets—ancient throat singing techniques, traditional string instruments and stadium-sized metal heft.” The videos for ‘Black Thunder‘ were filmed in the band’s native country Mongolia and tell a powerful story of battle, faith, and death while celebrating traditional Mongolian values both lyrically and visually. They were directed by Erdenebileg Ganbold and The HU’s producer Dashka.

Both ‘Black Thunder‘ parts are now available as digital streams along with the full extended version, which is also featured on their upcoming second album ‘Rumble Of Thunder‘ due September 2 via Better Noise Music. Pre-order ‘Rumble Of Thunder‘: here

Formed in 2016 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, The Hu achieved global recognition with powerful videos that have amassed over 113 million views to date. Wolf Totem’, ‘Yuve Yuve Yu and ‘The Great Chingiss Khan‘ showcase the band’s one-of-a-kind style of ‘hunnu rock’ – a combination of Western heavy rock played with traditional Mongolian instrumentation such as the Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle), Tovshuur (Mongolian guitar), Tumur Khuur (jaw harp) and guttural throat singing in their native language.

The band has achieved wide critical acclaim and appeared on many 2019 year-end best-of lists. In the US Loudwire listed ‘The Gereg‘ among its Top Albums of 2019 and Revolver Magazine listed the band’s video ‘Great Chinggis Khaan‘ among the year’s Top 10. In the UK, ‘The Gereg‘ placed among Top Albums of 2019 in Classic Rock and Metal Hammer magazines.
