Scythe biography
SCYTHE is steeped in seventies symphonic prog. The band draw from a wide variety of influences without one of them dominating their compositional approach. Therefore, their sound remains fresh and original while at the same time recalling the great days of progressive rock. There are plenty of influences from GENESIS and YES. The music does have a modern feel and recording quality to it. SCYTHE play what they themselves call "symphonic progressive rock with an edge". Some favourites of the band members are: KING CRIMSON, MARILLION, PETER HAMMIL, JETHRO TULL.

"Divorced Land" is a great album. It is sonically inventive, imaginative and one of the most interesting new progressive releases. It is overflowing with great musicianship, great writing, poignant melodies, and insightful lyrics that are delivered to you with great power and heart. Check it out.

Divorced Land
Scythe Eclectic Prog

Review by axeman

4 stars Am I Really Here? is an old favorite of mine from the days that I started streaming prog on the net. I can't even remember the name of the website, but it was free and you could stream more obscure prog rather than the prog standards. So, I listened around, and Scythe became one of my first "Why aren't these guys better known" discoveries. And AIRH? was my favorite among the obscure prog that I came across.

After looking at what was trending in 2019, and finding Solipsystemology by T (Thomas "T" Thielen) and finding the release on Spotify, and listening to it, I started reading the reviews to find out if other people were struck by how much Thielen sounds like David Bowie (nowadays). Then I saw that he started out in Scythe. I thought I recognized that name. And so I looked them up on PA, only to see the album "Divorced Land" which started ringing a lot of bells. So finding this on Spotify, I was able to rediscover this band and this album.

I think it makes a fine addition to anybody's prog rock collection. My favorites are, of course, Am I Really Here?, Weight of the Wind, Denied--although there are some really good parts in One Step Further.

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.

Review by Mellotron Storm

3 stars I became aware of this band when reviewing the German band T and noticed the leader of that Neo-Prog band was also involved in this other band called SCYTHE. That T record I reviewed was called "Naive" and I gave it 2 stars. No I wasn't impressed at all.This is better but I have had difficulty enjoying a lot of it.There is a definite Neo flavour to this one as well.

"Outro-A Striving After Wind" opens with laid back piano then relaxed guitar follows then synths as the sound builds. It settles back then picks back up. "Am I Really Here" has a lot of tempo and mood shifts throughout.Vocals 1 1/2 minutes in as it settles.The loud outbursts after 3 minutes are annoying.This continues a minute later as well. "Faded" is a short piece with the percussion and bass standing out. "One Stop Further" is kind of spacey as reserved vocals join in. It kicks in after 2 1/2 minutes.This is better.The vocals return unfortunately.The synths are hard to digest as well 6 minutes in. I do like the section before 10 minutes though which will come and go.

"The Weight Of The Wind" has these fast paced vocals and pulsating organ. Like a mix of GENTLE GIANT and GENESIS actually. "Access" is a short piano / drum piece with atmosphere. "Discussed" opens with synths as drums then vocals join in. Guitar and pulsating keyboards after 4 minutes. "Naivety" features mellow sounds that pulsate. "Run" and the next track are the only songs I really like. Reserved vocals and piano early but it does pick up quickly.The drums are intricate yet very active. It's intense after 4 minutes then it settles again before kicking in again. "Denied" has a strong intro with piano. Guitar then comes to the fore after a minute. Synths then lead as organ joins in.This is good. Pulsating organ 6 minutes in bringing GENESIS to mind. Piano melodies around 8 minutes then it turns heavier.The song continues to evolve. I like it !

The album ends well but that just makes it a solid 3 stars. A tough one to recommend really.

Review by progadicto

4 stars Here's one of the most surprising prog albums from the last decade. A wonderful piece full of recognizable influences perhaps unique and astonishing.

Marillion, Genesis and similar bands from the 70's and 80's are part of the sounds that slides into every song of this album, but the result is totally enjoyable and even singular. Since the powerful first 3 minutes of "Outro", there's no doubt about the quality of this album full of epic moments, great symphonic sections and quiet ambiental prog sequences that turns every song into a real delight for any real prog lover.

"Am I Really Here?", "One Step Further", "The Weight Of Wind" and "Discussed" deserves 5* because the complex arrangements, great instrumental sections and mixture of several prog genres. Beautiful album, full of glorious moments. A piece that deserves a special place into any decent prog rock discography. 4*+...

5 stars Excellent album.

I think this one is more symphonic prog than eclectic prog.

A very original mix of eclectic prog( yes , there are some mystic melodies and rhythms in the style of later Talk Talk and O Rang),Symph.Prog(very like old Genesis) and Jazz Prog.

You can find Genesis,Talk Talk,Landberk,Anekdoten and similar groups influences here.

Very solid music ,nice melodies.

Vocals are great .Musical arrangements and instrumental interpretations are excellent.

Very near to a masterpiece .

Special Collaborator Prog Folk

3 stars One of the few releases on the ultra-small Swiss prog label Galileo, this Alemanic Swiss standard prog quartet (with guest flautist Verena) develop a cross between symphonic modern prog with more obscure influences sometimes towards neo-prog. But all in all, they tend to stay very conventional reminding you of Simon Says (for the Nordic melancholy), Pendragon or IQ. Not really my cup of tea but in the genre I heard many albums that were insufferably boring and uninventive. Little of that here, although I would not consider this an incredible album or a resounding success, but we have here one of the better albums of the genre with three track lengths under two minutes, but also two tracks around the quarter hour length and three others ranging from 7 to 9 minutes. Nothing groundbreaking or even slightly original , but it can be pleasant. Anybody up for a trade?

Review by Cesar Inca
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars Scythe's "Divorced land" is, IMHO, one of the best prog releases to come out of Germany in the new millennium: this is a concept album about the miseries of lost love and broken families. The band's style is rooted on the modern symph approach that is usually called neo-prog, refashioned with the combined influences of 75-76 VdGG (dense emotiveness), Novalis and Eloy (harsh guitar parts, lush keyboard layers), and Gabriel-era Genesis (melodic sensitivity). In many ways, I find their style parallel to those of Dagmahr and Discipline (other fave contemporary prog acts of mine). Guitarist Thielen's performance on lead voice helps to convey the emotional restraint described in the lyrics: his hoarse timber - which locates him somewhere between "Still Life"-era Hammill and a somewhat high-pitched Fish - allows him to vocally incarnate the inherent tension of the concept theme. The opening 'Outro' is both majestic and somber, announcing the manifesto of melancholy and hopeless passion that fills the repertoire. The dramatic 'Am I Really Here?', the sophisticated 'Weight of the Wind' (the most complex number in the repertoire, which includes frenzy touches of jazz fusion), and the epics 'One Step Further' and 'Denied' (great closure!) are quite accomplished examples of the band's penchant for writing and arranging long compositions with convincing inventiveness and exquisite musical taste. Gehrards and Thielen complement each other perfectly, allowing their keyboard and guitar parts interact very fluidly, at times alternating or dueling in solos, but mostly, creating emotionally rich ambiences that properly enhance the melodic potential of the composed ideas. Meanwhile bassist Roden and drummer Walter work effectively as a solid rhythm section that flows confidently all throughout the tempo and mood shifts. The other not so long epic are remarkable, as well: 'Discussed' exhibits some of the most somber passages in the album, while 'Run' follows in a similar vein than 'The Weight of the Wind', even a bit jazzier. Here you can also find some pleasant, brief interludes that allow the listener to focus on some simple ideas in between the demanding, more complex long tracks: 'Faded' is a drum and bass duet built somewhere between jazz and post- rock; 'Access' is a melancholy nocturne, in which the dominant piano chord progressions are beautifully complemented by a distant mellotron chorus; 'Naivety' returns to the jazz-meets-post-rock realm, this time with Thielen's guitar assuming the leading role. Overall balance: "Divorced Land" stands out as an excellent modern great prog album, since it's full of great musical ideas, amazingly delivered by Scythe members' energetic performances.

Review by Greger
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Swiss label Galileo Records new discovery are a German band named SCYTHE. Previously they have released albums with FORGOTEN SUNS, METAPHOR and XANG. As these releases have been very good the expectations for this album was quite big. "Divorced Land" are the follow up to SCYTHE's debut demo CD "Each Other" (1999), but their first album on Galileo Records. Their music is complex symphonic progressive rock with some reminiscences to GENESIS, KING CRIMSON, MARILLION and YES. You'll probably have to hear this album for some time before you get into it. Everything is very good, but I can't get used to the vocals (but that is just my personal taste), which I find quite boring. All in all this is a promising CD with solid musicianship and complex compositions. When you finally get used to the vocals you'll find a diamond in the rough. Although it is a very good album, it is my least favourite on the Galileo Records label so far. It's however one of the better releases from Germany in a long time.
Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition.
