Sailor's Accolade is the first single from Scythia's third release 'For The Bear' EP being unleashed on September 25th.
The intention of this EP was to capture Scythia as they sound live. They have chosen to abandon fancy post-production sound effects and extensive guest musicians in favour of capturing the energy and excitement of these compositions. Fierce Riders of Scythia, Black Death and Dies Irae pt.1 were originally recorded back in 2009 and appeared on Scythia's debut "...Of War" release. These tracks have been re-recorded and re-mixed to capture the mood and intensity of Scythia's current line-up. The Mattawa Reel has been adapted from a Quebecois folk song written by Robert Forest. The Video Game Medley features excerpts from Wizards and Warriors 1, Castlevania, Skyrim, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Final Fantasy VI and Tetris.
