Progressive/power folklore metal four-piece SCYTHIA recently announced the release of their fourth independent full-length album, Lineage, hitting stores this Wednesday, May 4. Pre-orders for Lineage are available now via the band's Bandcamp page.

Last month, SCYTHIA released their first single from the album, entitled "Soldier's Lament", and now follows up with another new track, "Laugh Of The Tsar". You can listen to the new track now below.

SCYTHIA guitarist and vocalist Dave Khan states, ""Laugh Of The Tsar" was written eight years ago and on Lineage we FINALLY give life to this surreal whirlwind of a symphonic metal track. From beginning to end, the song charges ahead with a fast-tempo onslaught of melodic death metal against an orchestral backdrop with only a brief respite in the middle to showcase SCYTHIA's ability to weave beautiful slavic-style folk music into a crushing metal track."

Although the band primarily self-produced the album, Lineage features engineering from Nino Laurenne (FIREWIND, FINNTROLL, WINTERSUN, ENSIFERUM) and Lasse Lammert (ALESTORM, GLORYHAMMER, POWERWOLF), and mastering from Svante Forsback (RAMMSTEIN, VOLBEAT, FIREWOND, APOCALYPTICA). Nino Laurenne is also responsible for mixing duties on the album. Lineage was recorded at LSD Studios in Lubeck, Germany and Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki, Finland.

Lineage Track Listing:

  • "Eternal Oath"
  • "Laugh Of The Tsar"
  • "Barbarian"
  • "Soldier's Lament"
  • "Loremaster Pt. I"
  • "Loremaster Pt. II"
  • "The Sacrifice"
  • "Lineage"
As stated in a recent press release, Dave Khan mentions, "With Lineage, we feel that we've put our best foot forward and succeeded in delivering a follow-up to that progresses upon what we started with ...Of Conquest. This new one is faster, heavier and SLIGHTLY more serious-toned but also more dynamic and original than its predecessor. This story will take the listener on a sonic voyage through peaks and valleys in true power metal style!"

2016 sees SCYTHIA getting ready for more touring. As of now, the band has five events booked in north-western Canada, including their official album release party on May 4th. See below for all currently confirmed performance dates:
