It is always kinda weird to post a review of an album which means so much for you, you will place ultimate rating just because "you feel it so". I will try to state my reasons why I am rating this album so high anyway.

I know many people who claim Summoning are an uninteresting band whose best works were the first ones, when it still was "black enough". I have listened to almost all their works including very first demos, when it was nothing but "ordinary" black metal. As the time flows, they began to develop their specific style, different to almost all other bands. And in my opinion, Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame, is the flashing point of their carrier. Yes, the rest of their albums are great too and I would rate each of them (except Lugburuz) at least 9.5 at once, but LMHSYF means the most for me.

Rating: 7 I'm actually starting to like this band a bit more. Lugburz is still my favorite with Minas Morgul being a close second, but I don't find their other albums quite as boring as I used to. This one in particular is nice

Rating: 10 My fucking god, what a totally brilliant album yet again by these Austrian masters of epic black metal.

This is easily their most LotR-themed album and probably most epic one as well. I'm not so sure anymore about Old Mornings Dawn being my favourite album, as this one might top it.

Indeed you did, but so did a few other MS'ers (Joe and Mr. Doctor, I think). Then again, I would've checked it out regardless of that, seeing as this was the last full-length album of them I had to check out, so I had it on my list for months already.

In any case, yeah I can't get enough of this album. True masterpiece indeed! The ultimate Tolkien-themed album, in my opinion.

To me it's the best Summoning album, closely followed up by Stronghold and OMD. But honestly, I love all their stuff except for Lugburz (which is still nice ).

This one is epic, majestic and has a total LotR feel to it and has more variety than most, if not all, other Summoning albums, vocal-wise and sound-wise (melodies). In terms of pure atmosphere I'd go with Stronghold as the best, but overall this album is their best.
