Canadian progressive/power folklore metallers SCYTHIA recently released their newest full-length offering, Lineage. You can order your digital or physical copy of Lineage now via the band's Bandcamp page. Today, the band is pleased to announce their upcoming conquest of North America, beginning on October 26 in Regina, SK and hitting several major U.S. and Canadian cities, coming to a close on November 19 in Edmonton, AB.

SCYTHIA guitarist and vocalist Dave Khan states, "We are very excited for this upcoming tour. A lot of the bands we're playing with fit right into the mood of SCYTHIA's music. It's gonna be a lot of fun, especially since we are hitting the road over Halloween! SCYTHIA loves touring in the US and 2016 sees more dates south of the border than the last two years!"

  • 10/26 - Regina, SK @ The Artful Dodger
  • 10/27 - Portage La Prairie, MB @ Masonic Hall
  • 10/29 - Minneapolis, MN @ Hexagon Bar

SCYTHIA's new album Lineage features engineering from Nino Laurenne and Lasse Lammert, and mastering from Svante Forsback. Nino Laurenne is also responsible for mixing duties on the album.

SCYTHIA have been playing progressive power metal with a twist of folklore since 2008. The band has coined their own sound while drawing influences from different genres such as celtic/gypsy folk music, power metal, death metal and progressive rock. SCYTHIA's albums and performances feature rich, poetic storytelling and grand tales that vividly captures the imagination of their listeners. Because of this, 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 Khan's infatuation with ancient Slavic imagery and melodies inspired from Balkan music. The name is fitting for a grandiose sound as SCYTHIA is also an ancient empire spanning from the Caucasus through Russia, and even into eastern Scandinavia.
