Scythia marks it's 4th release with a powerful concept album that draws influences from folk metal, power metal, melodic death metal, and progressive rock. "...Of Conquest" blends these styles into a seamless storyline complete with an onslaught of memorable riffs, all-too-catchy choruses, instrumental virtuosity and a bold new production style that far exceeds any of their previous releases.
Scythia sought out Lasse Lammert (Alestorm, Gloryhammer, Svarsot) to handle the production and engineering, Nino Laurenne (Wintersun, Ensiferum, Firewind, Lordi) for mixing and Svante Forsback (Rammstein, Volbeat, Korpiklaani, Sonata Arctica) for mastering. "...Of Conquest" demonstrates an even more mature and refined album from the band that topped the Canadian Loud charts and was nominated for "Best Metal Act/Duo in Canada" (SiriusXM).
