Cimmerian is a symphonic metal band from Lancaster, PA.

The members of Cimmerian mix folk and classical influences with metal to create a sound inspired by the great metal bands of Europe. Layering melodic vocals and harsh growls over thundering guitars, soaring electric violin, bludgeoning drums, and a matrix of synthesizer, Cimmerian evokes promises of a blood-earned future amid ruined landscapes.

Cimmerian is currently playing shows in support of its first album, Awakened in the Shadows of Midgard.
