Dragonsclaw Interviews and Features
Below are our features and interviews with Dragonsclaw.
In 2011, Australia’s Dragonsclaw made its mark on the traditional metal scene with the debut release “Prophecy.” However, coming from near geographic isolation, the band has faced an uphill climb to make a name for itself, even in the band’s own country. Through all the adversity, the band launched an internet campaign to release “Prophecy” and has seen steady worldwide attention since. Now, they are set to release an extended single this fall (“Judgement Day”) and a following up with the sophomore full length release in 2013.

Where “Judgement Day” retains the direction of “Prophecy,” “Eternally” and “Fear” are the most complete songs the band has written, incorporating keyboard work and epic themes giving the band an early Crimson Glory feel.
