November’s Weekend Warriors

After some time off from the local scene Scimitar is returning with strength this November. We've got a series of weekend shows prepared in Vancouver, Nanaimo, Powell River, and Victoria.

On Nov 8th we will be supporting Russian Pagan Metal giants ARKONA at the Anza Club in Vancouver.  We're longtime fans and are unbelievably excited for the opportunity to share the stage with these veterans on their Pagan Worldwide Tour.  Tickets can be bought from Scrape Records for $20.

Armstrong Photos and Distribution Resources

Well it's been a few weeks since the Armstrong Metalfest 2013, and the photos are in!! You can check them in our live photo galleryAfter the festival we began an online overhaul. It’s never been easier to listen/download/stream any of the Scimitar releases than right now! Of the many websites we are now a part of we have particular interest in reaching out to our fans on these platforms…

Grooveshark is a great streaming site that allows you build your own playlist. We have been listening on grooveshark for years and we are very happy to now have out music featured on it!

Alvarado’s Leap & AMF

Woah, what a week! From Sunday night to Thursday morning we were recording (and living) at the Nimbus School of Recording Arts, then we made our way into the blistering heat of interior BC for Armstrong Metalfest 20-fucking-13 to rock out for a few days before returning home late Sunday night.

It was a grueling few days in the studio. Recording is always twice as hard, and takes 5 times longer than what you expected. Each night from about 7PM to 7AM our engineers Tim Creviston, and Sam Woywitka worked with us as we tracked our latest single "Alvarado's Leap".
