Canada's favorite purveyors of folk/prog Metal are proud to reveal to fans a sneak peak of their latest sonic attack, 'For The Bear' due out on Septmeber 25th 2012.
"Scythia is proud to present the artwork and more for our upcoming release. The artwork was painted by the talented Mika Harju of Finland. He has experience designing Metal albums before and we needed something tough and harsh looking to capture the intensity of the music. As you can imagine, it probably doesn't get much tougher than duelling barbarians from atop a bear in the dead of winter.

"We are also including a teaser track that gives a little prelude of the sonic intensity that accompanies this imagery", says vocalist/guitarist Dave Khan.
Following the success of their 2010 '...Of War' and 2011 '...Of Exile' albums, Scythia will be unleashing their 2012 scorcher, 'For The Bear', this fall (date soon to be announced). The short, but sweet seven-track EP departs from the orchestration and central concept of its predecessors, instead representing a leaner, faster, sharper folk Metal machine.
