New Music Video – ‘Video Game Medley’
About: Following the success of their 2010 “…Of War” and 2011 “…Of Exile” albums, Scythia unleashed their 2012 scorcher, “For the Bear,” this fall. The short, but sweet seven-track EP departs from the orchestration and central concept of its predecessors, instead representing a leaner, faster, sharper folk metal machine.
“The songs are faster, more exciting, heavier and straight to the point,” says vocalist/guitarist Dave Khan. “There’s much less of the acoustic interludes and extensive progressive sections in favor of capturing the excitement of folk/power metal. The result is a more modern and conservative mix that showcases our ability to play rippin’ folk metal.
So what is Scythia?
Taking its name from 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 into Eastern Scandinavia,” says Khan.
After the tremendous out pouring of support for volume 1, you, the Axis Of Metal community have spoken loud and clear and they’ve answered the call, and countered with Volume 2. Volume 2 features more emerging artists, and is more encompassing of the metal world than the previous release.
Volume 2 will treat your eardrums to the thrashiest of metal, heinous black metal, putrid death metal, empowering traditional metal, methodical doom metal, boundary pushing progressive metal, the grooviest of groove metal, avant-garde madness, and bouncy folk metal among many other genres and incarnations of heavy sounds.
They’ve loaded their heavy metal shotgun and are discharging the most comprehensive of compilations to satisfy even the pickiest of nay-sayers and nitpickers.
If you’re wondering who crafted the sublime cover art, Axis Of Metal’s good friend Kartigan has stepped up to the plate and donated his time, effort, and patience and delivered the goods. If your band needs any sort of artwork, please don’t hesitate to contact him at: email@example.com and they can put both parties into motion.
Axis Of The Underground is their way to give back to the genre that has brought all of us years and years of elation and enjoyment. So sit back, crack a cold one, or roll a herbal cigarette and hit play on the bandcamp link below, and be prepared to be whisked away to a heavy metal nirvana.
