Folk Metallers Scythia Release “…Of War” Today!! As Pay What You Want Album
Vancouver folk metallers Scythia release their debut album “…Of War” today, October 5th, and in celebration of the release they want you the fans to “Pay What You Want” for the digital and physical album when purchased online via the following link – http://scythia.bandcamp.com.
“We strongly believe that everyone has their value of music, so in thought, we are trying something different with our fans. We want them to feel strongly about their purchase of our music. So for the release of our album, when they purchase it online they can pay what they want for it and what they feel is a fair purchase and what it’s worth to them.” comments vocalist / guitarist Dave Khan.
Blending epic storytelling with modern progressive metal to create an interesting dynamic that includes an oboe of death and classical violin. Scythia’s ancient and medieval influenced melodies will bring the past back to the present as they ready to brandish their swords and prepare for tour in support of their upcoming release “…Of War” produced by Shaun Thingvold who has engineered on projects with SYL, Fear Factory, Darkest Hour and many more.
Formed in late 2008, Scythia is not your older brother’s metal band. Taking its name from vocalist/guitarist Dave Khan’s infatuation with a painting of Nordic/Russian warriors riding bears while brandishing swords, Scythia not only “gives the painting musical significance,” but it is also “the name of an ancient empire spanning from the Caucasus through Russia, and even into eastern Scandinavia.
Scythia will be on their “Exiled Across Canada Tour” in the following cities:
