Scythia - ...Of War (2010)

from Scythia

"Odin-approved one-two punch of “Fierce Riders of Scythia” and “The Black Death” that kicks off …Of War," - Decibel Magazine - This Record Rules Feature

"A brilliant album" -

"What sets Scythia apart from the others is its specific attention to quality musicianship. The music is adventurous, creative, and epic." -

"I really enjoyed the first single, "Fierce Riders Of Scythia" and I found myself immediately drawn into their world and once there, did not want to leave. The fascinating blend of metal and Russian/Middle Eastern folk music is quite surprising and exceptionally good." - PureGrainAudio

"Tracks like "The Black Death" and "Warrior's Anthem" serve as vast soundscapes versus standard metal tunes, that firmly place Scythia as a band of gypsy minstrels in this renaissance period of swashbuckling tales of swordplay. " -

"These folks can really shred their instruments...A creamy blend of heavy and melodic puts Scythia on par with contemporaries like Eluveitie and Glittertind...Of War offers plenty of virtue"

"Scythia debut – an epic folk metal tale...most definitely a band that you should have in your private music collection. " - Toronto Metal Examiner

The music on “...Of War” is uplifting and inspiring: songs primed to make folks want to go in to battle,...a damn fine piece of art." - Canadian CD of the Week - The Argus

Live Reviews

"I highly recommend catching them...Scythia’s fun and catchy folk metal, it’s a fantastic show that’s sure to put your fist in the air and a grin on your face." - - Live Review

"Folk-Metal with fiery conviction" - The Argus (Thunder Bay) - Live Review

Scythia Calgary, Alberta

“I love the killer guitar work” –

“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.” -

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