Listen as Teshaleh weaves spells with their music, telling tales of wizards and dark-eyed sorceresses, sly rogues, glittering swords and the days of high adventure! Journey with us into eastern fantasies and that place where the flames of imagination burn white hot!
June 9 2018 -- We will be performing a tribal/acoustic set with Delaware band Bastion's Wake at Brimming Horn Meadery in Milton, DE. Admission is free, there will be Vikings onsite, lots of mead and roasting pig as well!
One year ago (that's 5 in mead years), several of us gathered together in the wilds outside of Baltimore at Orion Studios for the first time. And here we are a year later!
To celebrate, we are announcing a new addition to our troupe, a second singer, Lori Glimmer! A Baltimore based artist of many disciplines, they got their start modeling and performing burlesque in 2013 and have been exploring other arts in the area ever since, now lending their vocal talents to indie rock band Blessed Distance and Teshaleh.
We've had to cancel our set for the Big Bad Metal Show III on December 8, 2017. If you have purchased a ticket from us and have chosen to not attend the show, please contact us via our Facebook page and we will issue a refund.
We are seeking an additional folk/classical melody instrumentalist.
Our sound is heavy and complex metal fused with European medieval, folk and middle-eastern instrumentation and melodies. Our current lineup is: guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, bagpipes/winds, and vocals.
Our strongest influences are from European folk metal & neo-medieval music (Korpiklaani, Heidevolk, Saltatio Mortis, In Extremo, Corvus Corax) with additional influence from hard rock & metal bands like Therion, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep and Jethro Tull.
We are primarily interested in a fiddle, violin or viola player but will consider other traditional stringed/drone instruments like hurdy-gurdy or viola de gamba.
PLEASE NOTE: We are NOT looking for additional guitarists at this time.
We typically practice one Sunday a month at Orion Studios in Baltimore, MD. We have occasional pick up practices and online video chat writing sessions. We do our best to work out an amenable schedule but you will be expected to attend every rehearsal.
You must also be willing to dress in medieval/fantasy garb on stage. Garb is NOT required for practices!
We plan to record an EP in October 2017 at Orion. Our debut performance at the Maryland Folk Metal Festival on August 19, 2017, was very well received and we are planning additional bookings after completion of the EP.
If you would like to audition, please send us an email via the CONTACT page. Audition requirements will be to learn one original tune (we’ll provide a recording and chords/notation, if needed) and one cover tune (Wooden Pints, by Korpiklaani). Please also be prepared to provide a recording of your playing (live or studio).
