"Their sound reminds me of something I would listen to if I wanted to watch the battle between the Orcs and all the other human like species in THE LORD OF THE RINGS"
“Claymore in the month's compilation "Fear Candy" of magazine Terrorizer issue 247.Many thanks to Miranda and the team of the journal ! "Send from Bulgaria to crush you with their melodic black metal,these guys aim for the epic with their symphonic atmospherics and name taken from a Scottish greatsword. Brutal." Terrorizer”
“Claymore is an ancient monster from the depths of Rousse. It rises and attacks the Balkans with its brutal symphonic metal, filled with such divine wrath that most mortals fail to understand what happens when spiritual evil comes upon them.”
“The orchestration contributes to the characteristic "enchanting" feel of the songs, but the story is far from a "good night" one. The title is ruthless as the album itself”
“Because every day another band records another song. Because 83% of those songs are unlistenable and you can’t be bothered to sift through the dreck. Because metal is about not giving a shit and waking your own personal storm. Because music is universal, expression is boundless, and even indie labels (whatever that means these days) don’t know everything, Decibel brings you Throw Me a Frickin’ Label Hack.”
“Certified by NASA for participation in the "Space Rock" program.”
“The guys from the riverine town are so many years on stage now, and after series of member changes, finally they have a full length release and a serious concert history. CLAYMORE showed skill and played not only some of the "Prolonged Active Antagonism" tracks, but also some quite new songs...”
"...recognition for outstanding achievement in poetry by Howard Elly and the International Library of Poetry in Maryland, USA"
"CLAYMORE made impression by demonstrating very good use of the instruments, varied dynamic compositions, characteristic vocals and a very good demeanour on the stage. The last is something I have the pleasure to announce since it is usually a minus in the presentation of lots of Bulgarian (and frequently foreign) bands."
