about

Debut album of Claymorean!

Label: stormspell.bandcamp.com

"Without compromising the integrity of their sound, Claymorean are successfully straddling the line between traditionalism and progression, culminating in the mighty “We Fight Like Lions”, which despite its latent similarities to a certain Italian band still is a standout track. Unbroken has enough quality to leave its mark on the power metal scene and teaming up with StormSpell Records will enable them to bring it to a wider audience, so keep an eye and an ear on this one!" - Alex Melzer (The Metal Observer)

"Using both male and female vocals, Unbroken flirts with epic fantasy soundscapes and pedal-to-the-metal cookers in equal measure, always keeping the momentum going with high tempos and energetic performances. Frontwoman Dejana Pavlovic steals the show with her clear, piercing wail, while the guitar work thugs away in the background, driven by pummeling double kick drums and charging gang chants. Everything about this release is quality!" - Bruce Turnbull (The Metal Crypt)

Tracks 1-5 are based on the stories and characters from Warhammer® fantasy series (property of Games Workshop®).

"Into the Courts of Chaos" (Manilla Road cover) used with kind permission from Mark Shelton.

We wish to thank our families, friends and supporters from all over the world for being there for us through ice and fire and for having enormous amounts of patience during the recording of the “Unbroken”.

Raise the banners high and ride into glory!

Track Name: Heldenhammer
Heldenhammer
(music by Dejana Garčević & Vladimir Garčević; lyrics by Vladimir Garčević)

River runs to the north
watched by eyes of the eagle
Battle songs from the old
spread through mountains and forests

Myrmidia, beautiful goddess of war

Noble and brave, let thy wisdom prevail
Free our realm from the grasp of the shadow

Comet's piercing the sky
blazed with light and a twin-tail
Gods have send us a sign
child was born, it's an omen

His time will come, Sigmar the glorious one

Hammer of war, he shall rise to the sky
God Emperor, in his honor we’ll die

Sanctus Dominus
Gloria Ave

Hail to the Lord Emperor
In his holy wisdom he'll be our guide
Let the freedom shine with hammer high

Sanctus Dominus
Gloria Ave

Hammer of war will ascend to the sky
God Emperor, in his honor we’ll die
Raise the banners high and ride into glory
brothers side by side for honor and pride
Track Name: Gods of Chaos
Gods of Chaos
(music by Dejana Garčević, Vladimir Garčević & Goran Garčević; lyrics by Vladimir Garčević)

We came from dimension beyond space and time
to conquer your world for we are Divine
Blessed be the ones who are touched by the hand
of infernal darkness that spreads through this land

Blood, murder, war!
Skulls for the Throne of Khorne!
Kill, maim and burn!
The favor of Blood God you’ll earn
Death, disease, decay!
To Lord of the Plagues you will pray
Suffering, sickness and pain
dawn of destruction will reign

Gods of Chaos
Ruinous powers unleashed

Hearken you men, brave sons of the north
bow to your knees and pledge on your swords
be loyal receive the greatest reward
forever in service of the Chaos Lords

Sorcery, shadow and change
your minds I corrupt and derange
Limitless thirst for power
my name makes all men cower
Pleasure, passion, desire
I’ll wake your internal fire
Decadence, lust and pride
to Dark Prince eternally tied
Track Name: The Everchosen
The Everchosen
(music & lyrics by Vladimir Garčević)

He was the faithful servant of God and Emperor
Devout to Sigmar’s temple, zealous and honorable
The mark of the witchunter he bears and he is sworn
to fight the Hordes of Chaos, for such deeds he was born

Deep into the dungeons he found
scrolls of arkane wisdom lost

Chaos will rise
Eternal champion in favor of gods
Death in his eyes
Archaon the lord of the End times

Temple and all its splendor in service of false god
Dark prophecy’s awakened, He is the chosen One
Burned all the ancient scriptures, killed all his nearest kin
traveled to northern wastelands, offered his sacrifice

Summoning the ancient daemons
The six treasures he must find
Track Name: Ironhide
Ironhide
(music & lyrics by Vladimir Garčević)

I was blessed by the unholy light, I have lived since the existence of time
Fear my name as I walk through the void of the infinite armies of Chaos
He was born with the soul of a king, preordained to end all suffering
Heavens cry when his hammer awakes, all shall cower in the final battle

Born for war, bear the mark, storm is near, wild and dark

Bravely rides the avatar of god, the exalted one
hurling Chaos warlord to the ground for the final strike
Bravely rides the avatar of god, the exalted one
hurling Chaos warlord to the ground for the final strike
He will end this fight

Suddenly Prince of Demons attacks, sinks his sword through the Emperor's chest
Mountains crack from the blood in his voice for the end of his valiant splendor

Bravely falls the avatar of god, the exalted one
on his knees impaled he screams in vain for the final strike
Bravely falls the avatar of god, the exalted one
on his knees impaled he screams in vain for the final strike
Fearless battle cry

Born for war, pay the price, storm has come, wild and dark

Standing alone watching it all
Quiet as a snake I sharpen my blade
Long was my wait, deep was the shame
The hour has come to honor my name

The Ironhide, bearing his axe
Immortal son of the Orcs

Let it be written, this day is mine
my blood is boiling, now is the time
Dark One is broken down on his knees
I give no quarter, vengeance complete

Twice he struck the Dark Lord, two deadly blows
Archaon slumped to the ground, it’s the end of the storm

Born for war, armed with hate, wields his axe, fills his fate

Lifeless body of the Chaos Lord lying on the ground
One name echoes through the mountain range, mighty Ironhide
Lifeless body of the Chaos Lord lying on the ground
One name echoes through the mountain range, mighty Ironhide
Bringer of the light
Track Name: Aeons of Revelations
Aeons of Revelations
(music & lyrics by Miodrag Fodora)

From the fires of betrayal unto the blood of revenge
Bounded with chains to conformity sworn

Once you’re theirs there's no way out
They wash your brain, put the words in your mouth

Never forget that you are walls of steel and iron
You are the sole walls of Imperia

Once you’re theirs there's no way out
but you're not alone in these endless lairs

We keep the name of the fallen soldiers
We sing the songs through the bloody corridors
And through the aeons of revelations
There will be no more desperation

Those which slumber eternally will rise again
And you shall pay them a debt from the death that you sow in His name

Never forget that you are walls of steel and iron
You are the sole walls of Imperia

March into the fires of battle
Unto the anvil of war

We keep the name of the fallen soldiers
We sing the songs through the bloody corridors
And through the aeons of revelations
There will be no more desperation
Track Name: Dreamer on a Path of Light
Dreamer on a Path of Light
(music by Vladimir Garčević; lyrics by Dejana Garčević & Vladimir Garčević)

Journey into the wildest of dreams
In a land of the eternal spring
Bards are playing the songs of the old
long forsaken a story untold

Come with me on the meadow of gold
lies the world which no mortals have seen
time ago was committed a sin
newborn blood of the ancients within

Once he came to a magical wall
mirror showed him the way to the past
only one who can open the gate
to divine where he will meet his fate

Then in silence he opened the door
stream of infinite light on his face
as he walked through the portal alone
wind carried him to vastness of space

High above the mountains
my spirit's flying free
Life is neverending
so don't cry for me
Track Name: Silent Guardians
Silent Guardians
(music by Vladimir Garčević & Matt DeVries; lyrics by Matt DeVries)

Winged beasts of his majesty, honored through time
Protectors of realm, four dragons that stood tall
Omniscient, silent and true
Bringers of justice, givers of hope
Pillars of freedom, allegiance never swayed
But soon things would change

They did oversee a wizard one day
Who came to their king with grin upon his face
That sinister face
Dragons then knew something was wrong
They were enraged to see the kingdom betrayed
They’ll betray their king on this day

The king of the realm traded his honor for a tyrant’s life
In league with the wizard who promised him all he could want
Four dragons then came prepared to attack
Before they could act, the wizard assured they would stay
With his magic he put them away

Turned into stone for what they had known
They were the guardians of paradise
Once dragons of fame, the statues remain
Standing alone in the wind and the rain

The wizard ended the dragons’ great rule
Turned them to stone and placed each one alone
on castle's four tops of the world
Instead of the power the king met his end
Death dealer the wizard, his task is now complete
Throne is now a vacant seat

The dragons’ spirits looked down from above
Knowing all well there is nothing they could do
The wizard knew this too
Evil minions were summoned, the kingdom now claimed
No use to wizard the people dragons once saved
All were slain!!!

The king of the realm traded his honor for a tyrant’s life
The wizard betrayed him and took all he could want
The dragons stood still on the castle top
They could not act, they watched as the madness took place
Forever in silence they wait

Turned into stone for what they had known
They were the guardians of paradise
Once dragons of fame, the statues remain
Standing alone in the wind and the rain

Decades go by and still dragons stay
Bodies of stone with spirits dismayed
No savior in sight no chance to be freed
The kingdom crumbled under king’s greed
Decades go by and still dragons stay
Bodies of stone with spirits dismayed
No savior in sight no chance to be freed
All betrayed!!!

Turned into stone for what they had known
They were the guardians of paradise
Once dragons of fame, the statues remain
Standing alone in the wind and the rain
Turned into stone for what they had known
They were the guardians of paradise
These dragons of fame, forever in shame
Only the wizard to know of their fate
Track Name: We Fight Like Lions
We Fight Like Lions
(music by Goran Garčević & Vladimir Garčević; lyrics by Vladimir Garčević)

Sa istoka vojska silna
krenu protiv Bajazita
Horde moćnog Tamerlana
mongolskoga strašnog kana

Far beyond the rising sun
from eastern lands they rode
led by fearsome Timur Lang
the mighty Sword of God

On the trail to Angora
near crossroad of the world
to wage a war with Ottomans
the Turkish overlord

Time flies for sultan's army
Calls his vassal reinforcements
and at the dawn of battle
bravest of them all will

Fight!!!
Two-headed eagle in white
Knight of the dragon attacks
Armor as black as the night
In battle supreme
like lions they fight

Drhti carstvo otomansko
Sultan stoji bespomoćan
jedina mu nada osta
slava srpskih vitezova

Sunlight rose on hallowed soil
the crows have filled the sky
No warning given from each side
the carnage has begun

Thousands fell in single blow
outnumbered in their ranks
scattered Turkish soldiers roar
the sultan's overthrown

Deep into heart of battle
from the flanks on screaming stallions
three times they cut through Mongols
pathway to the glory
