After a long and boring 6 years' break we finally found the right spirit to sail our ship again. Together with our "new kids on the block" Florian Sauer on Drums and Christian Johne on Guitars we felt that the first gigs in Kettwig, Solingen and the Heiligenhaus Stadtfest generated a lot of energy, not only in the crowd, but also among ourselves!

In order to keep this momentum going, we decided to launch a new website, to keep you updated and more involved in what we do...

Although we still love to play our "classics" and older material, we also feel the "drive" to address our creative minds and produce lots of new material... Needless to say that we keep going for songs that represent our feel and will connect with the "Soul of Claymore..."

All Hands on Deck!!! Wishing our fans all the best for 2019! A little more over a month and we'll play the venue of the "Alter Bahnhof" in Kettwig, this being the first of, what we hope, many more engagements in 2019. So let's see if we can get "all hands on deck" on that night.. We really look forward to it!

New website launched! - After a lot of work, here is the first version of our new homepage. Several items (like our guestbook) will be added soon and a German version will be available shortly! We are also "digging" in our archives to present you lots of moments from the rich history of the band, backgrounds of our musicians and former members and we like to give you a lot of info about our songs; when and where we got the ideas, the historical backgrounds, locations etc... So come back regularly to get some new info...
