The Skinny: Canada’s favorite purveyors of folk/prog metal, Scythia are back once again with a re-mixed and re-mastered version of their holiday tune “…Of Santa”, a cheerful track about Santa and his brave reindeer! Stream the song below and check out the funny album artwork!

Following the success of their 2010 ‘…Of War’ and 2011 ‘…Of Exile’ albums, Scythia unleashed their 2012 scorcher, ‘For the Bear,’ this Fall. The short, but sweet seven-track EP departs from the orchestration and central concept of its predecessors, instead representing a leaner, faster, sharper folk metal machine.

“The songs are faster, more exciting, heavier and straight to the point,” says vocalist and guitarist Dave Khan. “There’s much less of the acoustic interludes and extensive progressive sections in favor of capturing the excitement of folk/power metal. The result is a more modern and conservative mix that showcases our ability to play rippin’ folk metal.
