What make Schytha’s sound “fun” is their use of group vocals. This gives it a “fun for everyone” type of vibe. While quite good, For The Bear only contains a few new songs, plus 3 remixes from their debut album …Of War. It’s a decent effort to tide fans over, but more new material is certainly desired. If you pick up a copy of this EP, shout along till you lose your voice!
