Scythia new album release: Of Conquest - February 2014

Scythia are a progressive metal band from Canada who incorporate folklore and legends within their music. With 4 albums under their belts and an ever increasing band of supporters from around the world, Scythia are definitely a band I would like to see hitting the UK shores soon. Their music is filled with epic stories, detailed narratives and grand tales. Their album art is deep and immersing.

Of Conquest is due to be released on 25th February. The band have released 3 tracks on their Bandcamp page which give you an idea of the scale and epicness this new album will have.

The album was engineered and produced by Lasses Lammert (Alestorm, Gloryhammer, Halcyon Way, Svarsot) and was co-produced by Shaun Thingvold (Strapping Young Lad, Lamb of God, Fear Factory). It was mixed by Nino Laurenne (Ensiferum, Wintersun, Kiuas, Firewind) and was mastered by Svanta Forsback (Rammstein, Firewind, Korpiklaani, Apocalyptica). The album artwork was created by Alan Lathwell and the album features guest appearances from Teemu Mantysaari (Wintersun), Tommy Kirby (Ides of Winter) and ‘Evil’ Glen (Ides of Winter).

You can pre-order the album and also grab the bands’ previous albums PLUS the wonderful Christmas single, Of Santa from their Bandcamp page.
