about

This is Scythia's 4th full-length release and it features the culmination of the band's sound in orchestrally-laden progressive power metal and tinges of melodic death metal.

The band completed the album in late 2015 using the same team as Of Conquest with the additional of Arys Iberian on Keyboards and AJ Bergin on guitar.

“I love the killer guitar work” – Bravewords.com

“Scythia has successfully created what truly is ‘movie score metal’ with a style that is a confluence of Russia’s Beer Bear, Elvenking, and early Uriah Heep.” - MetalUnderground.com

“If you are looking for something a bit different, you might want to give Scythia a listen. 8/10 HardRockHaven

Track Name: Eternal Oath
Invaders below
Ones that defiled our home
Silently pursued our prey
Foreign laws we can't obey!

Asking for courage
wisdom and more
Grant us your favour in war
You were there for our fathers
and fathers before in our
ancestor's tales of lore

Never to leave my post
I swore an Eternal Oath
Forced to stand my ground
I swore an Eternal Oath

Blood shall run
Men shall fall
Uphold the
eternal oath

Pay homage to death
Curse them 'til our final breath
Even if we fall tonight
our vengeance shall be had!
Track Name: Laugh of the Tsar
Many centuries ago when the tides of man were turning
There was a leader who ruled the land with an iron fist
They knew him only as the tsar and this is his tale

Now you will fear
wrath drawing near
you will cringe at the
Laugh of the tsar

all my armies marching forward
desecrating sacred lands
reaping spoils and taking riches
conquering with iron hands
Flee before the savage bear
he will tear into your flesh

I will conquer and you will feel my wrath

Now you will bow before me I am the tsar

Leader of the holy army
Torturing those who oppose
I will drown your helpless screams
Laugh of the Tsar

Crusading with a higher power
Seizing all my rightful lands
With the might of Bannered steel
Laugh of the Tsar

I am the tsar
Kneel before me
I pass judgment
on all those I see

All will succumb to my reign
Bringing slavery and death
I'm the beast of bedtime stories
Stealing children in the night
I will rule this land forever
Never shall my legend die

I will conquer and you will feel my wrath
Now you will bow before me I am the tsar

Laugh of the Tsar
Sounding in the night
Laugh of the Tsar
Following you everywhere
