Appalachian Winter

Who says America isn’t “cold”? Hailing from the ice capped mountains of Pennsylvania, I bring you Symphonic one man project Appalachian Winter. With five full length releases since 2008, visionary and brainchild behind Appalachian Winter, D.G. Klyne shows no signs of slowing down. Appalachian Winter’s unique brand of Symphonic Black/Folk Metal is sure to please even the harshest critics because, while the genre drips in cheese, there is an intelligence in the band’s sound, reminiscent of Summoning or (dare I say it) Nordland era Bathory.

In an age when Europe is so often celebrated for it’s legacy in Black Metal, Appalachian Winter seeks to put America on the map with the band’s latest release, Ghosts of the Mountains. Song titles like Rebellion Within the Young nation, Pennsylvanian Fire and The Cemetery Where Slaves Lie Buried celebrate the darkness of the American countryside. From hearty minstrels to battle hymns to sheer symphonic eargasm, Ghosts of the Mountains resonates a fullness and quality unmatched by many.

While the band’s material can be difficult to procure, D.G. Klyne has made some of his music available free for download on Lastfm.com. One can’t help but recognize the integrity of an artist willing to do that. While I’ve yet to hear a track I didn’t like, I will let readers put this artist to the test. This is the first track from new release Ghosts of the Mountains entitled Rebellion Within the Young Nation. Happy listening. Hails!

  2. I love this project, especially Klyne’s views on free music. The 2013 album doesn’t disappoint either. Would you consider the occasional guest review, or a permanent position on a review site?

  3. Why thank you. I thought so too. Also, I am such a geek for metal that I would be listening to these bands anyhow. I figured I’d put my hobby to good use. There’s no greater thrill for me than digging underground and finding a gem.
