German Atmospheric Death Metal band SCYTHE started their Metal journey in 1994. They produced many demo tapes until finally, in 1998, releasing their first, more serious demo CDR entitled "Last Eclipse". This demo contained old, rearranged songs as well as some new material. The second CDR demo was released in 2000 and so far the band stuck firmly to oldschool Death Metal roots. For their third release, "On My Way Home" they demonstrate maturity and an excellent combination of Brutal Death Metal and Atmospheric Melody. I had received a CDR of "On My Way Home" and not long after formed Witches Brew. SCYTHE were the first band to join our ranks. "On My Way Home" was given an official release and a year later followed up with the excellent "Poetry Of Illusions". In 2004 the band celebrated their 10th year anniversary and to commemorate this, went back into the same studio where "Poetry Of Illusions" was recorded to go back in their past and dig up some old material to re-record and re-master, taking the form of the very aggressive, excellent, "The Process Of Rotting".
