Tour Dates: 
24/09/2010 - 07/11/2010

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, one 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 Strapping Young Lad, Fear Factory, Darkest Hour and 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 on the band's style.
