I stumbled upon another band today that most of you probably are not aware of-Scythe.
According to the band’s website “SCYTHE is a True Chicago Underground Heavy Metal Band that specializes in head-banging, fist-banging, thrashing, Metal Anthems. Forged out of the ashes of the legendary Chicago band USURPER, by original Usurper guitarist, songwriter, founder, mastermind: Rick Scythe; SCYTHE picks up where USURPER left off – by establishing a sound which incorporates the style of 80’s thrash/black/death metal, combined with elements of dark atmosphere, classic heavy metal and heavy rock n’ roll to create an original sound that follows no modern trends. SCYTHE is a spikey gauntlet in the face of all hipster pretenders, new metal trenders, false wanna-be-Nu-Thrash, and all other forms of weak, derivative uninspired metal.
Posers BEWARE… BEWARE THE SCYTHE!
The band’s debut album “Beware the Scythe” will be out in April. In the meantime you can check out two of their songs at their Facebook page
