SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Short-lived German act from Trier, formed in late-90's out of the ashes of the group Powds Con Fusion, where guitarist/singer Thomas Thielen, keyboardist Udo Gerhards and drummer Martin Walter had been playing together.Recruiting bassist Ingo Roden, they formed Scythe and recorded a demo CD-R in December 1998, eventually making it available since March 1999.

This demo showed a talented band with a promising future, performing a balanced Neo/Symphonic Progressive Rock with strong GENESIS influences, delivered through long tracks with a few shorter interludes inbetween.Scythe's music was characterized by deep soundscapes, dramatic atmospheres and sufficient instrumental textures, offering elaborate and slightly theatrical Progressive Rock.There are evident resemblances to acts like GALAAD, TWING AGE or TRIANGLE and their style is strongly grounded in symphonic territories despite the obvious Neo Prog attitude.Clever use of pianos and measured synth explorations are well combined with lighter and more aggresive guitar tunes with not very complex but still well-crafted arrangements.What actually spoils the effort is this early vocal style of Thomas Thielen, who tries to sing in different ranges, but his voice is too accented and immature.The music though has plenty of good moments to offer due to the welcome adaption of the GENESIS style of Prog.

Not among the best works of the style, but very far from the worst ones or some pathetic clones of GENESIS.Good and refined light Symphonic Rock is what characterized Scythe's early steps, nothing more and nothing less.Recommended.
