Guest review by

I noticed this band only a few months ago, but since the first notes it immediately caught my attention. The two "Tolkien-epic-men" Silenius and Protector are two great musicians; and the proof is their melodic reserch into each song. Infact, if you listen to this Summoning's album, there's always a keyboard part that gives strong emotions, completes the base riffs in a really catchy way and creates that atmosphere characteristic of the Atmospheric/Black Metal (a genre in which this band rules since 1993).

Already much better than OMD.

It's interesting that you think so. You know me, I love all their albums, but I still think OMD is better than this.

In any case, I recommend you to check out Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame. It was the last album of their discography I checked out but it's my favourite nonetheless. It really doesn't get more epic and majestic than that album. Honestly, Dol Guldur is rather boring compared to that one. Hell, even the likes of Joe love that album. It's a true masterpiece of epic black metal and it also has the most variety going on out of all Summoning albums, no doubt about that.
