Claymorean is independent female-fronted epic power metal band from Lazarevac, Serbia.
The band released two albums under the name Claymore – “The First Dawn of Sorrow” (2003) and “Lament of Victory” (2013). The music of Claymorean can be described as mix of traditional European power metal with epic filmscore influences in the same vein with Manowar, Nightwish, Rhapsody of Fire, Bal-Sagoth, Dragonland and Virgin Steele, just to name a few.
The band was formed in 1994 by its original member Vlad Invictus (guitars and vocals). After many line up changes during the entire decade, the band finally recorded its debut album The First Dawn of Sorrow in 2003, which was released on CD and cassete for a Serbian record label One Records . The material itself was raw and homemade, but songs quickly found their way to listeners on a radio show called Demo express 202 . The song The Triumph was among the top three most played songs for several months, but political and economical situation in Serbia was far from good for the bands that played metal and rock music. After dozen of shows the band went on hiatus.
In 2012 Vlad Invictus gathers a new line up of Claymorean, which plays on local festival in Lazarevac. The band enters a local studio ( Midnight studio ) in February 2013 and begins recording their sophmore album called Lament of Victory . Album was produced, mixed and mastered by Boris urlan, a very young and talented producer. Cover art was done by famous artist Du an Marković, the same artist who worked on band s previous album. “Lament of Victory” was released on October 25th 2013 via SoundAge Productions.
In October 2014 band entered “Midnight studio” again to record the new album. Recording process lasted over 5 months with the newly established line up.
Claymorean released their 3rd album called “Unbroken” for “StormSpell Records” on July 1st 2015.
