Scimitar was formed in 2008 by Angus Lennox, Clayton Basi and the Anstey brothers (Noel and George), all of whom attended Mount Douglas high school together. This lineup remains unchanged today, other than a brief membership of keyboardist David Douglas from late 2010 to 2012. The band’s debut album Black Waters was released in 2010 at a release show that, like many of Scimitar’s early Victoria performances, was hosted and promoted by the band members themselves. The most recent production of new Scimitar material emerged in spring 2013 during the South of Heaven Symposium: Heavy Metal & Religion at the University of Victoria. Following Black Waters, members of the band amassed the knowledge and equipment required to self-record thus the single To Cultivate with Spears was released free of charge in conjunction with a studio video. In July 2013 Scimitar played their first festival slot, at the fifth installment of Armstrong Metalfest (featuring Suffocation, Holy Grail and Bison BC) in their home province of British Columbia.
Currently the band is hard at work on the recording and production of their sophomore album Shadows of Man.
