Claymorean is an independent epic-power metal band from Lazarevac, Serbia.The music of Claymorean can be described as a mix of traditional European power and epic metal with some doom and folk influences.The band released two albums under the name Claymore: “The First Dawn of Sorrow” (2003, One Records) and “Lament of Victory” (2013, SoundAge Productions). The first installment of the band was formed in 1994 by its original member Vladimir Garcevic a.k.a. Vlad Invictus (guitars & vocals). After many line up changes during the entire first decade, the band finally recorded its debut album “The First Dawn of Sorrow” in 2003, which was released on CD and MC for a Serbian record label “One Records”. In 2012 Vlad gathers a new band line up, which debuts on “Fabula” a local festival in band’s hometown. Shortly after a live premiere, Claymore enters the “Midnight studio” in February 2013 and begins recording the sophmore album by the name “Lament of Victory”. This album was published on “SoundAge Productions” label on October 25th 2013.After a successful show at “Serbian Metal Festival” in Belgrade in June 2014, band eventually changed the name to Claymorean.Claymorean can be considered as an entirely new band, since the musical direction is very different from Claymore’s. The sound of Claymorean is more stripped down, back to the roots power heavy metal, depraved of keyboards and symphonic elements.In October 2014 Claymorean once again entered “Midnight studio” to record the new album. Recording process lasted over 5 months with the newly established line up. Claymorean released their 1st album called “Unbroken” for “StormSpell Records” on July 1st 2015.The second album called "Sounds from a Dying World" has been released July 12th 2017 on “StormSpell Records”.
Serbian power metal is virtually unknown (some may argue Serbian metal in general is), but at a little closer look, the former Yugoslav republic has had a few specimens to catch the fans’ ears, such as Tornado or Enjoy Sarma, but overall, yes, it is not has been a grand export to date. Now Lazarevac’s Claymorean (up to 2014 operating as Claymore) are at the bat with their third full album Unbroken, at the same time their label debut for the American stronghold of everything traditional StormSpell Records, and they should stand a decent chance to get their sound to a wider audience.Compared to their 2013 effort Lament of Victory, the Serbians have expanded their style a little by adding Miodrag Fodora as additional vocalist, giving the quintet a triple vocal attack, with Dejana Betsa Pavlović still leading the way and the accentuating growls still floating around, but Miodrag now brings a full clear male voice to the table. Stylistically Claymorean are unmistakably part of the European school of power metal, with a lot of higher tempos and strong melodies, many of them strongly influenced by the traditional sound of the eighties.One of Claymorean’s best traits is their ability to create good dynamics and combine them with good guitarwork and strong melodies, with enough of an epic touch to keep the fans of that camp appeased, but without stepping over into the realms of bombast. Opener “Heldenhammer” displays this with its epic intro and then slow build-up into an epic chorus, which stands as counterpart to the fairly calm verse. At the same time the beginning of the album is a mostly mid-paced affair, which, while thoroughly enjoyable, lacks that extra kick in the rear after a while until “Ironhide” brings the much needed injection of speed and also power, double-bass driven, with some shout growls, it is catchy, but not shallow.“Dreamer of a Path of Light” shows the band’s potential, starting out acoustic and with an almost campfire-like quality before evolving into a full-fledged ballad and then towards the end fully stepping on the gas pedal, yet there is another song that trumps it. “We Fight Like Lions” is an ode to Serbian prince Stefan Lazarević and his troops that fought alongside the Ottoman sultan Bayazid against the Mongolian Timurid Empire in the battle of Ankara (or Angora), in the end resulting in a loss by the Ottoman Empire, yet Lazarević’s troops’ drew the admiration of Khan Timur, who said that “they fight like lions”, pretty much coining the title, which obviously tells the story from the other end. The song sets out with an almost Rhapsody-esque male choir before Dejana unleashes her inner metal queen with a more edgy delivery, which goes hand in hand with the equally edgy riffing and sheer energy of the track, in which the choir returns several times.The closing statement of “Into the Courts of Chaos” is, as the fans probably already notice, a Manilla Road cover and 2015 seems to be evolving into a good year for Manilla Road cover versions, with Visigoth very successfully taking on “Necropolis” earlier this year and Claymorean also doing an excellent job, with Miodrag leading the way here.Without compromising the integrity of their sound, Claymorean are successfully straddling the line between traditionalism and progression, culminating in the mighty “We Fight Like Lions”, which despite its latent similarities to a certain Italian band still is a standout track. Unbroken has enough quality to leave its mark on the power metal scene and teaming up with StormSpell Records will enable them to bring it to a wider audience, so keep an eye and an ear on this one!
