Scythian – Hubris in Excelsis – Review

The extreme fusion of black, death and thrash metal is an area that has a lot of potential. But unfortunately, most of the bands that end up making this type of music tend to make it an extreme aural assault that is oft marred by low fi production. This is exactly what I expected when [...]
