Petrychor is an atmospheric black metal project from USA, formed in 2009, and containing elements of folk, world, classical and noise music. A debut EP, Dryad, was released unceremoniously in February of 2010 and quickly gained a following on the internet through numerous reviews, filesharing, and radio play. In May of 2011, a full-length album, Effigies and Epitaphs, was released digitally with a physical release on Khrysanthoney soon to follow. The 2CD set contains both releases in double-sided packaging.

In 2013, a split with Frozen Ocean entitled Autumn Bridges was released on Wolfsgrimm Records. The full-length album Makrokosmos followed in 2014.

Petrychor has a Bandcamp site at Effigies and Epitaphs is a name-your-price download, and the other releases are each available for a small price.
