Rejoice, my metal brethren and fellow LOTR enthusiasts! Earendil has persuaded the Valar with his Silmaril to make war upon Morgoth for the sake of Middle Earth, casting him beyond the Door Of Night into The Void for all eternity (yeah, that was added in there for the nerds like myself that've actually read The Silmarillion). Tolkien references aside, Summoning's new album, no doubt one of the most anticipated releases of the year, is finally upon us, and from the very first moments of its music the band make it quite clear that the 7 years of waiting since Oath Bound back in '06 have been well worth it for 2013's Old Mornings Dawn.

Rating: 8 Me too, but it must be year when i first heard rumor about summoning making new album...then this spring i have read an update, that Protector has the songs ready, but waiting for Silenius to finish his duties in other bands (Kreuzwerg Ost and Amestigon)...since then again nothing...
Dark Seraphim - 11.10.2010 at 05:41  
  I'm expecting something great here. The Summoning have always produced great albums so I've got high hopes.
Sulac - 07.11.2010 at 05:21  
  I have to collect everything else by them... But I'm anticipating this greatly. Hope it's still a 2010 release.
Exzentriker - 08.02.2011 at 01:24  
  It has been a while since a good album came out in this genre ,
Gravelands last album was ok , but nothing special,
Burzums last album was also ok , at last no cheap aim on copying themselves,
Falkenbachs new album gotta be a joke,
Summoning is my last hope , every album they released was great til now , I hope that wont change..................
worm_is_gloaming - 12.04.2011 at 19:27  
  June is only couple months away. Anyone know where this 'June' release info comes from? This better be right. Summoning has been silent for too long.

Rating: 8 This album isn't gonna happen. It's not "Time" but it's been in question for years. It's not gonna happen this year.

All praises due if it does. That just proves that Summoning is more reliable than Wintersun, and dare I say, better and more respectable.

Rating: 10 Yea, where the f*ck is it now. Come on Summoning, it's been 5 years since the last album, give us smth more. With all do respect to their every release which I still enjoy very much (as a matter of fact I just put on Minas Morgul) I sure wouldn't mind yet another ambiental, epic, hauting summoningish BM album. But as LeChron James said, it probably ain't gonna happen.... But we can always hope...

Things are quite grim. Summoning was supposed to start making a new album when Kreuzweg Ost finished their album, that Kreuzweg album was supposed to come out last year... It's still not out. no word about it to. I wonder if there is an inner conflict going on.

It won't be released until mid-2012 at the earliest (if ever), let's be honest.

I think that's an incredibly fair statement, but I still see it definitely being released at some point (probably?)
RavenKing - 02.10.2011 at 19:23

I hate this statement, but it's true. 3 months till the end of the year (even less), and no news. Looks bad. No news on their official site, no news on Napalm Records....

Vombatus - 16.05.2012 at 18:48  
  So, this will have to wait till 2013 it seems...

The fact they make something similar to Passing of The Grey Company or Khazad Dum makes it very promising, I'm a big fan of that kind of structure with cheesy-keyboard-driven building up.

Rating: 8 "Silenius: We hope that we could finish the work for the new album until the end of this year, so that it could be released in the first part of 2013. But of course we take all time we need to get a satisfying result."

Rating: 10 From official site: "This month Protector will record the guitars for the new album while Silenius is working on the lyrical concept.

As soon as possible Napalm Records will put a one minute trailer to advertise the new CD on the their homepage, that hopefully will happen around December."

looks like we're going to get the taste of it very soon

When a precise release date is yet to be announced, it is automatically set as "december" on MS. So do expect this on the first quarter

Rating: 10 This may just be the greatest Summoning album ever made - its got the catchy Stronghold riffs, the atmosphere of the older albums and a lot more 'world' inspired instruments. The percussion is extremely well done this round.

I apologize in advance if this is a silly question, but what's the deal with the special editions? In other words, since I didn't pre-order, can I still get the edition WITH the two bonus tracks, because I absolutely need that one. And I hope you're wrong about 2020. Maybe they're fast this time and it'll be 2018 when the next album gets released.

Damn, still have to buy LMHSYF and this one (Lugburz too, but already listened to that one enough on Youtube). After that, a "best to worst" list is bound to be made by me.

Bonus tracks are indeed the deal of pre-orders ! Coz as far as I know, you can only get them from the boxset or the vinyl (I got the green edition one.. others were already sold out ).
It's a shame everything got sold out very fast yet you see quite a few copies flying around ebay for ridiculous amounts (I know this always happens, but gets me mad...).

Maybe you might get another chance, as they are going to release some leftover songs from OMD session but no idea about the tracklist...
