Scimitar are a Thrash Metal band from Belfast, Northern Ireland formed in May 2011. The band wrote music for around a year, before performing their live debut in June 2012 in The Warzone Centre, Belfast. Since then our fans’ reaction and support has been overwhelming; we received an amazing response from the local Belfast Metal scene and shared our music with local and touring bands with shows in Belfast & Dublin.
Scimitar have been provided with unreal support slots with world touring bands thanks to The Distortion Project, DME Promotions & Shizznigh Productions including: Exhumed, Gama Bomb, Hatred, Evile, Arnocorps, Power Trip, Thrash Metal legends Onslaught & Teutonic Thrash master’s Sodom.
Our first tour covering Belfast, Dublin & Galway took place in January 2016 with Helsinki Thrash giants Axegressor on the Annihilation of Mortals III Tour.
Scimitar played Thrashersaurus Festival, Norwich, UK in April 2017 with Anihilated, Shrapnel & Onslaught.
The band released it’s debut E.P ‘The Act Of War’ in March 2013 featuring 6 original tracks recorded by Start Together Studio sound engineer Niall Doran. A second E.P followed in October 2014 entitled ‘Plague In The Vatican’, featuring 3 original tracks recorded by Scimitar guitarist John Thompson.
‘Where Darkness Dwells’, Scimitar’s debut Album was released 27th August 2017 & their first official music video ‘Behead The Beast’ was released October 15th 2017.
