New song - here's a preview.

Here’s us practicing a new song for the production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream we’re scoring. Come see it, and us, this Thursday-Sunday!

Here’s what we’ve got on this one. So far.

Holly: vocals, acoustic guitar
Dylan: electric guitar
Christopher: hammered dulcimer, synth
Matt: bass guitar
Dennis: drums

We’ll see if we can’t add some violin tomorrow once Elizabeth is back in town. 

Darkness lies in your eye, dormant ‘til you waken.
Dreams of summer ease your captive mind…



A Midsummer Night's Dream

We’ve been hard at work on an original score for Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and we’ll be performing it live along with The People’s Shakespeare Project’s production of the play. We’ve put together an elaborate score incorporating acoustic and folk instruments (and, of course, metal). This might be your only chance to see Cimmerian do Shakespeare, so don’t miss it!

Performances are July 22-25 at 7:30 PM each evening. Performances are outdoors at the Swan Pond at Millersville University in Lancaster, PA (if it rains, the show will go on at the adjacent Rafters Theatre). Admission is free, so come check it out!



"A Long Silence Followed by Some Activity: Save this date."

Hear Ye Hear Ye!

We here of Cimmerian took an impromptu unannounced summer break (people taking vacations, visiting home, filming zombie movies… among other reasons), and an apology is in order for the long silence. So we have decided to release another of the tracks from our CD Awakened in the Shadows of Midgard for you! Track 2: Pillar. It’s available on the ‘Friends Only’ Audio page on the site, which you can have free access to if you register on the site – it only takes a few seconds and we wont harass you with spam. 

In other news: 

  • we’re deep in the midnight woods at the moment, writing a score for a production of Midsummer Night’s Dream that will take place in July
  • SAVE THE DATE of October 2nd… just do it, it’s a big one. More info to follow, so stay tuned!

 Get downloading, and keep it Metal! \m/
