heliotricity scythes IV album cover

 Night of Years
 Blinded by the Sun
 I Can See Venus

Scythes IV is the fourth full length recording by Daniel Shams. His voice, delivery and the depth of his poetry often draws comparisons to Tim Buckley. These extraordinary compositions were recorded after Daniel moved back to the states from an extended period of time living in Sevilla, Spain, having spent all of his money after a year immersed in the mysterious art of flamenco.

These would be the last songs he would record before devoting himself entirely to flamenco music for the next 10 years.

“The compositions on Scythes IV sparkle like raw gems in the profound darkness of an unyielding night…” Wallace Blackie Gold
