Summoning Empty
PostSubject: Summoning   Summoning EmptyWed Dec 23, 2009 8:28 pm

Probably my favorite band.

Cthulhu Guide to Summoning

Here is samples/links from each album (oh how much their style has changed):

Demo

Interesting. Not the greatest thing ever, but worth a listen or two.

Tales From the Northern Forest (song)

Lugburz

It's good melodic black metal, Tolkien style.

Beyond Bloodred Horizons (song)
Flight of the Nazgul (song)

Minas Morgul

This is where their style really started to change, after they kicked out the real drummer.

The Passing of the Grey Company (song)
Lugburz (song)

Dol Guldur

A bit more epic, with longer songs. The Nightshade Forests EP was release shortly after continuing the album, because Summoning had so much material written that they couldn't fit it all in one album.

Nightshade Forests (song)
Over Old Hills (song)

Stronghold

Summoning's only non-Tolkien album. With this album they moved into an incredibly epic style.

Like some snow - White Marble Eyes (song)
A Distant Flame Before the Sun (song)

Let Mortal Heros Sing Your Fame

This is the album that broke boundaries in the music world. Stronghold was epic, but this is even more epic. Some people have even gone as far as to call this album "too epic." Impossible IMO. They used a choir for the first time in the song "Farewell."

Farewell (song)
South Away (song)

Oath Bound

Ok. This totally hit me by surprise. It's even more epic than the last album. By far my favorite Summoning release, and most people just can't handle so much epic at one time.

2 songs here use the choir, and it sounds so good that I wish it was used more. But, alas, this album isn't just the best Summoning album, but the best metal album period.

Mirdautas Vras is also the only song, not including the LotR soundtrack, to be written entirely in black speech. It's actually very beautiful, yet ugly.

Mirdautas Vras (song)

And here is a "sampler" with all the songs on the album in parts (but to get the whole effect, listen to the album in order, and then it will take you to The Land of the Dead, widely considered the greatest Summoning song).

Land of the Dead (song)

Very good band. Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame is currently my favourite by them.

I started listening to them a while back before this forum was made. Now that I've seen more people here listening to summoning, I listen to them more often.

They are a fantastic band, more fantastic than I first thought.

Probably my favorite Black Metal band, but that isn't saying a whole lot considering I don't listen to much Black Metal.

Oh for god's sake, don't agree with Knightfall. Listen to more black metal.

I think I dislike this forum more and more each day.

Listen to good black metal though. Not the shitty stuff like Dimmu.

Nothing wrong with Dimmu. They've put out some kickass material.

Dimmu doesn't slap you in the face with terrible, but usually around the 2nd track it just gets intensely boring.

This and Shagrath's vocals are annoying.

The thing with Dimmu is that they had an awesome formula, then changed it for the sake of changing it. For All Tid, the original Stormblast, and Enthrone Darkness Triumphant all had crazy awesome and flashy keyboard parts and good solid guitar work. After that they swapped it and had flashy guitar parts that forgot the crazy awesome part and had boring but generally solid keyboard parts. The moral is if you must put a keyboard in black metal, make it fucking awesome.

Bump, just because.

Been listening to a lot of Summoning lately. This is a somewhat old thread and most of what I said is invalid (well, mainly just the "I don't listen to Black Metal" part), but Summoning is still one of my favorite bands. Oath Bound, Stronghold, and Minas Morgul are my favorites of their albums.

Summoning is great. I don't really think of them as a black metal band. I mean, they definitely have influences from that genre, but they're mostly completely different.

Anyone else listened to any of the band members' side projects? Ice Ages and Die Verbannten Kinder Est are both worth checking out.
