Canada's favourite purveyors of folk/prog metal, Scythia are now streaming their upcoming EP 'For The Bear' on MetalRecusants.com at the following location here. The EP will be officially available on Tuesday, September 25th 2012.
A short, but sweet seven-track adventure that departs from the orchestration and central concept of its predecessors, 2011's '...Of Exile' and 2010's '...Of War', the EP represents a leaner, faster and sharper folk metal machine.
The folk warriors will also be trekking across Canada for their 'For The Bear Tour' that will kick off at their EP launch show in Vancouver, BC on September 26th at the Rickshaw Theater and will see the band venture east with a performance at Noctis Metal Fest on September 29th alongside such names as Venom and Agalloch and heading as far as Montreal, QC and back west over the month long tour.
