I suppose that many people were waiting for the comeback of Summoning with a new album, so here it is, "Oath Bound" is their 8th offering to the world, reviving Tolkien's dark world through their own musical perspective with their exceptional epic/lyrical interpreting manner. I have to admit that the first listen didn't impress me so much, i found the album a bit tiring and monotonous, but no, it was just a first bad impression because from the second listen and on (i can assure you i listened to this album a lot in order to form my final opinion) the dark clouds started fading away and i saw the real face of 2006's Summoning.

I think the best way to describe the music of Summoning would be slow paced, epic, atmospheric, raw Black Metal intertwined with folk music. Oath Bound is Summoning's sixth album and was released in the first half of 2006. The album wasn't featured in the Black Metal category of this year's Metal Storm awards perhaps through the fact that not a lot of people have heard this album, but it really is worth a listen.

Rating: 8 Good album. Bauglir is their best intro imo, Mirdautas Vras just totally makes you fear the Nazgûls, and Land Of The Dead is an epic closing track.

Rating: 10 Every time I listen to Land Of The Dead I feel like I want to die go there where there is no voice, no sound of a beating heart.... I love Summoning. The Streaming Tide made me cry because its music is absolutely brilliant. I have never heard such a beautiful song in my life. After all these years, I find it even more beautiful every time I listen to it.
