    Scythia - Avalon Steel, Teratorn, Dogbane ScythiaWebsiteFacebookWatchLinksLike a charging bear, since 2008 Scythia have been playing some of the most epic progressive metal with a twist of folklore. Each member, while bringing their own style, they have coined their own sound while drawing from different genres. Scythias album, tracks, and performances features rich, poetic storytelling, and an epic tale that captures the imagination of all who are privy to its lyrical melody. Because of this, and touring like a cavalry of nomads, they have taken the independent scene by storm as they gather more and more fans both domestically and internationally. Scythia acquired its name from vocalist/guitarist Dave Khans infatuation with a painting of Nordic/Russian warriors riding bears while brandishing swords. Scythia not only gives the painting musical significance, but it is also the name of an ancient empire spanning from the Caucasus through Russia, and even into eastern Scandinavia. Since then Scythia has kept an eye on the future, and constantly are growing and increasing their impressive discography. Scythia delivered their first album Of War" in 2010 where the band's distinctive sound was forged, which carried on to their next release Of Exile. Scythia, a very ambitious, technically and sophisticated band that continue to rapidly grow and tour across Canada. While recording their third release, For The Bear, their sole purpose was to bring great melodic metal to the table, which in response has received nothing but a sensational response in the media and radio. Most of all they did not forget their fans, new and remnant from their earlier years. For The Bear is a seven-track EP, that steps aside from the orchestration and central concept of its predecessors and has a faster, more aggressive, and is far more tighter. Their constant and rapid growth and talent as a unique band is undeniable. "The band is finally finding it's ideal sound. This next album we are currently writing feels very natural and forms the perfect marriage of progressive power metal and catchy epic anthems." Says singer/guitarist Dave Khan. "That's why we are putting our strong cards together and getting it done right!". The band will be heading to both Germany and Finland to work with a reputable metal engineer and reputable metal producer to help them sonically fulfill this vision. Early on in 2013 the band is getting recognition with more reviewers giving them high ratings. Most of all they were nominated for the Best Metal Group/Duo for Canadas Sirius XM Indies - Independent Music Awards. Other nominees include Bison B.C, Derelict, Devin Townsend Project and Mares Of Thrace. This is a great honor for the band to be included as nominees for these awards since they represents the Canadian independent music scene. "Receiving this nomination shows that Canada takes us seriously as a strong presence in the scene. Given the reputation and career of these other bands, it goes to show that our hard work focused in a few intense years has brought us quite far. Regardless, now is not a time to rest on our laurels, but instead to refine our craft and continue to expand our circle of influence into international venues" The next two years, Scythia has its sights set on new and larger horizons. The upcoming years will unboundedly be exciting for Scythia as they set ahead to working on their next album which will be produced by Nino Laurenne (Ensiferum, Wintersun, Kiuas, Firewind). They are getting ready and packed for more touring in Canada and then setting sail across the seas. Not only is Scythia a hard working group, they keep aligning themselves with the right people to move forward they are also one of those bands that simply gets better with each album, and with every show.
