Canadian medieval-themed power metal band SCYTHIA and Decibel Magazine are teaming up today to bring you the brand new track ‘Reflections’, cut from the band’s upcoming album …Of Conquest. ‘Reflections’ is the fourth new track released from the album, which hits stores onFebruary 25, 2014. Check out the new track at this location, exclusively via Decibel Magazine. Listen now!
“This track is a “one-of-a-kind track” on the record,” states guitarist and lead vocalist David Khan. “‘Reflections’ pays tribute to the progressive styles of the early 80’s, with a good dose of powerful modern riffs. Actually, come to think of it… this song has a lot of gems and they are all rolled into a track that clocks in at less than 5 minutes.”
…Of Conquest, which in addition to power and folk metal influences also includes hints of progressive and death metal, is engineered/produced by Lasse Lammert (Alestorm, Gloryhammer, Halcyon Way, Svarsot) at LSD Studios in Lubeck, Germany, with co-production by Shaun Thingvold (Strapping Young Lad, Lamb of God, Fear Factory). The album is mixed by Nino Laurenne (Ensiferum, Wintersun, Kiuas, Firewind) at Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki, Finland. Mastering credits go to Svante Forsback (Rammstein, Firewind, Korpiklaani,Apocalyptica) at Chartmakers in Helsinki, Finland.
