Scimitar is a metal band hailing from the island capital of Victoria, BC, Canada. Combining influences from melodic-death, folk, and black metal; Scimitar features uncompromisingly heavy drums, high-rollicking finger style bass, dual-guitar-driven harmonies, and gruff yet sharply enunciated harsh vocals that deliver lyrics based in historical fiction and fantasy. This musical package is manifested live through a blistering energy and sword-edged focus on the audience. Scimitar has shared the stage with metal notables such as Ensiferum, Arkona, Soulfly, Septic Flesh, Heidevolk, Unleash the Archers, Inquisition, and Archspire. Shadows Of Man is the Canadians latest effort.
Since 2008 they have firmly cemented their boots in the western Canadian music scene playing at festivals including Absolute Underground’s Rising Scum Fest,Vancouver Island Metal Festival and Armstrong Metal Fest, and releasing two full-length albums, Black Waters in 2010 and Shadows Of Man in 2019.
This musical package is manifested live through blistering energy and sword-edged focus on the audience. Most of Scimitar’s chronicle remains blank, as they have much more to offer the world of metal.
