Scimitar is a Metal band hailing from the island capital of Victoria BC, Canada. Their sound can be described as a mosaic of Melodic Death, Thrash, Folk and Black Metal, with an uncompromising heaviness in the drums and harsh vocals, a constant high-rollicking finger style bass as well as twin guitar riff-based adherence to the roots of extreme music. Scimitar’s lyrics are largely based in historical narrative, with rare digressions into philosophy and the supernatural. This musical approach is made manifest live in blistering energy and instrumental prowess. Scimitar has shared the stage with Metal notables such as Inquisition, Arkona, Into Eternity, Woods of Ypres, Archspire, Unleash the Archers and Nylithia. Scimitar was formed in 2008 by Angus Lennox, Clayton Basi and the Anstey brothers (Noel and George), all of whom attended Mount Douglas high school together. The band later acquired the talent of Keyboardist David Douglas from 2010 till 2012. The band’s debut album Black Waters was revealed in 2010 from a release show that, like many of Scimitar’s early Victoria performances, was hosted and promoted by the band members themselves. The most recent production of new Scimitar material emerged in spring 2013 during the South of Heaven Symposium: Heavy Metal & Religion at the University of Victoria. Following Black Waters, members of the band amassed the knowledge and equipment required to self-record thus the single To Cultivate with Spears was released free of charge in conjunction with a studio video. In July 2013 Scimitar played their first festival slot, at the fifth installment of Armstrong Metalfest (featuring Suffocation, Holy Grail and Bison BC) in their home province of British Columbia.

In the week leading up to the festival, the upcoming single Alvarado’s Leap was recorded at the Nimbus School of Recording Arts in Vancouver. Currently the band is hard at work on the recording and production of their sophomore album Shadows of Man. This release will be heavy surprise for those grown used to Black Waters, with a new musical direction evocative of the latest singles. Shadows of Man will be available to the world on January 1st, 2015.
