October 8th, 2010

On the road and going coast to coast, Vancouver’s follk metal contingent of Scythia will be pillaging their Montreal “Exiled Across Canada” tour date on the best night of the year. Halloween!!!

Already known for wearing their viking inspired clad that even includes an oboe of death player wrapped in a rabbit skin bra. Scythia will fit pefectly in place on Halloween night as they take to the stage at Katakombes (1635 St. Laurent) on Sunday, October 31st alongside Valfreya, Heroik, touring mates Marching Mind (Vancouver) and The Unconscious Mind.

“There’s no better city in Canada to play on Halloween then Montreal! We’ve been sharpening our axes and prepping are war cries for this night of plunder!” comments Scythia’s Dave Khan. “We come to conquer your ale and heathens and show Montreal the fierce force from the riders of Scythia.”

The night will consist of an unforgettable Halloween party that includes a hanging every hour on the hour for those with scurvy! (aka no Halloween costume) where they will be dunked into a bucket full of freshly shipped nordic ice waters.

Plus a planned appearance from Thor (not the metal music god), the God of Thunder as he leads his viking followers to compete to be the Viking Master of his hammer! Many more Halloween surprises to be announced. To follow this event plase join the facebook event here. – http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=153856791300136&ref=ts

Scythia Announce "Exiled Across Canada" Tour Dates

Scythia Announce "Exiled Across Canada" Tour Dates

Vancouver progressive folk metal band Scythia have announced their “Exiled Across Canada” tour dates set to kick off in Victoria, BC on Sept 24th. The six man & woman contingent will be echoing their thundering tunes over the following six weeks across Canada.

Blending epic storytelling with modern progressive metal to create an interesting dynamic that includes an oboe of death and classical violin. Scythia’s ancient and medieval influenced melodies will bring the past back to the present as they ready to brandish their swords and prepare for tour in support of their upcoming release “…Of War” produced by Shaun Thingvold who has engineered on projects with SYL, Fear Factory, Darkest Hour and many more.

“Folk music is definitely more ambient, pure, and beautiful. Metal is intense, raunchy, and driving. The use of both in songs, combined with dynamic contouring, has the ability to take the listener on the kind of journey that rises to mountain peaks and descends into valleys, in a sonic sort of way,” comments vocalist / guitarist Dave Khan.

Formed in late 2008, Scythia is not your older brother’s metal band. Taking its name from vocalist/guitarist Dave Khan’s 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.

Free download of Fierce Riders of Scythia is now available at the following link – http://scythia.bandcamp.com/
