Scythian: Hubris In Excelsis

Album Review

Savage UK duo navigate themselves around the classics

Scythian love to cover their tracks.

While they’re one of the rare British acts to be signed on a US label usually more accustomed to frantic South American fare, the choirs that echo at the beginning of their epic second album intro suggest initially that we’re about to follow Quorthon’s path to Valhalla, only to be buried into a torrent of black/thrash the next minute before returning to those Viking shores with northern winds blowing our hair.
