• Killick Hinds lives in Athens, Georgia USA. His music is Appalachian Trance Metal made on unusual stringed instruments with an emphasis on unquantifiable rhythms (shaping time), intuitive intonation (shaping pitch), and shamanistic ROYGBIV (shaping color). The primary sonic influences on Killick are animals, wind, water, fire, electrical hum, and silence. Pop-culture mashups and ancient and obscure forms infuse his music; the effect more closely resembles speech patterns and emotionally-drawn architecture than it does conventional Western music. Despite its eclectic nature the sounds are surprisingly familiar and accessible to audiences of all ages and levels of musical involvement. Killick is a co-founder of Habitable Records and offers mastering services for dynamic sounds through H(i)nds(i)ght Studio. More than 300 Killick albums can be found via his Bandcamp page.
