Since 2008, Canadian progressive metallers SCYTHIA have been performing their own blend of epic progressive metal with a twist of folklore. SCYTHIA’s album, tracks, and performances feature rich, poetic storytelling, and an epic tale that captures the imagination of all who are privy to its lyrical melody. Because of this, and touring like a cavalry of nomads, they have taken the independent scene by storm as they gather more and more fans both domestically and internationally.

SCYTHIA will release a brand new, third full-length album in early 2014, entitled …Of Conquest. The new album, which blends musical influences from the likes of progressive and power metal, to folk and melodic death metal. …Of Conquest is engineered/produced by Lasse Lammert (ALESTORM GLORYHAMMER, HALCYON WAY, SVARSOT) at LSD Studios in Lubeck, Germany, with co-production by Shaun Thingvold (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, LAMB OF GOD, FEAR FACTORY). The album is mixed by Nino Laurenne (ENSIFERUM, WINTERSUN, KIUAS, FIREWIND) at Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki, Finland. Mastering credits go to Svante Forsback (RAMMSTEIN, FIREWIND, KORPIKLAANI,APOCALYPTICA) at Chartmakers in Helsinki, Finland.

...Of Conquest Track Listing:

  • "Fanfare 1516"
  • "Merchant of Sin"
  • "Bear Claw Tavern"
  • "Sailor's Accolade"
  • "Reflections"
  • "The Kraken"
  • "Into the Storm"
  • "Land of Scythia"
  • "Wrath of the Ancients"
  • "Army of the Bear"
  • "Path Through the Labyrinth"
  • "Departure"
A music video for the band’s first single, "Bear Claw Tavern", will be released in December.

"The band is finally finding its ideal sound. This next album we are currently writing feels very natural and forms the perfect marriage of progressive power metal and catchy epic anthems," says singer/guitarist Dave Khan. "That's why we are putting our strong cards together and getting it done right!"

They are getting ready for more touring in Canada and then setting sail across the seas next summer. Tour dates are currently being booked and a full tour announcement will be coming in early 2014.

SCYTHIA delivered their first album Of War in 2010 where the band's distinctive sound was forged, which carried on to their next release Of Exile. While recording their third release, For The Bear, their sole purpose was to bring great melodic metal to the table, which in response has received nothing but a sensational response in the media and radio. Most of all they did not forget their fans, new and remnant from their earlier years. For The Bear was released last year as an EP.

SCYTHIA have received many accolades and awards as of late! They were nominated for the Best Metal Group/Duo for Canada’s Sirius XM Indies - Independent Music Awards, amongst other reputable Canadian metal bands. Other nominees included BISON B.C, DERELICT, DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT and MARES OF THRACE.

"Receiving the nomination shows that Canada takes us seriously as a strong presence in the scene. Given the reputation and career of these other bands, it goes to show that our hard work focused in a few intense years has brought us quite far. Regardless, now is not a time to rest on our laurels, but instead to refine our craft and continue to expand our circle of influence into international venues," adds Khan.

Dave Khan - guitars, main vocals
Terry Savage - bass, harsh vocals
Jeff Black - keyboards, back-up vocals
Celine Derval - Drums, back-up vocals
