Canada's masters and wizards of folk-progressive Metal fusion, Scythia, have once again donned their medieval garb, dusted off their oboe of death and summoned the echoes of thunder in preparation for their up-coming Western Canada mini tour dubbed the 'No More Trolls Tour'.

Kicking off in Calgary, AB on May 5th, the tour will see trolls running for cover across Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia until June 2nd when Scythia will play a very special charity show at the Astoria in Vancouver, BC, benefiting the Richmond Animal Protection Society. Hunting trolls, saving dogs and cats – the best motto to live by.

And for those who don't have a chance to see the band performing live, and for those who do too, Scythia will be unleashing a new folktastic music video of epic proportions for 'Spirit Of The Quest' from their sophomore album, '...Of Exile', which was released to great praise last fall.

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
