There are so many great songs of Summoning, but the best is "Long Lost To Where No Pathway Goes"

Hm, that's a tough one cause basically I find all Summoning albums and songs great. I guess my #1 is still The Passing Of The Grey Company from Minas Morgul. I just find that song so epic and haunting at the same time.

Close runner ups would then be: Morthond, cause it's so hauting, Where Hope and Daylight Die (I also very much like Die Verbannten Kinder Evas), Tanja Borsky has this really mysterious voice that fits in this song pefecly, a very gothic-like-mesmerizing song, Wyrmvater Glaurung, for the same reson, cause it's so obsure in its essence and Over Old Hills, especially the ending when the song seems to get this ''enlightining'' atmosphere... I really can't put in words this correctly, it's the feeling I get listening to it.

Huh, hard choice as I said, cause I like so many songs by them....

I would say it is because Summoning dont have one or two "greatest songs", but at least dozen of them...and the same with many other bands

Not a single one is good, all mediocre to crap imo. But then again what is a drunk 41-year old doing posting in a thread about a band he finds totally crap?

Everyone has his opinion, so if anyone doesn't like band and talks bad about them just let him do so, what's the problem with it? Summoning is also my favourite band, but I have no problem with people who don't like them

there is already topic about Summoning as a band, he can post his critics there...this is for their fans about best songs...besides according to forum rules, if you want to say some band is crap, you'll have to prove it somehow, otherwise it should be marked as posthunting (which is something, Marcel H. knows well with his 20K of posts, or? )

The topic is about the favourite Summoning song and he has written that he doesn't like a single one of them, for me that sounds like an appropriate answer

Well, if you are competent and you have listened to a band's music and dislike it for an obvious reason, then I see no obstacle in doing that. From what I understood from Marcel H is that he knows Summoning's music and doesn't find any of the songs suitable to his taste, he didn't just come bashing them here, hearing fom them for the first time. + He was drunk and I think that should be considered as well

Long Lost to Where No Pathway Goes has to be my favourite. It is so calming and atmospheric. The only other band that has this effect on me is (early) Edenbridge. The music is Summoning is nothing amazing, it is just the blend of sounds and the overall melody it creates that makes them so powerful.

I have to say that I didn't like Summoning at first. I found it weird and boring. However, I believe their music is unique and awesome now. I think it's a kind of music that needs to grow on you because there's much more at play than the way it can sound at first.
Also, I think Summoning is very epic. Much more epic than any Powermetal or 'symphonic metal' band people often refer to as epic. I see no epicness in bands like Hammerfall, Rhapsody of Fire, Thy Majesty, Manowar or Nightwish. Only cheese. From my point of view, they're way too cheesy to be epic.
What I like so much about Summoning is even if it's orchestral and melodic, it's devoid of cheesiness.

I would say the difference between Summoning and Powermetal some people refer to as epic is the same kind of difference between "A Black Moon Broods Over Lemuria" and any other Bal-Sagoth album.
You can take ABMBOL seriously (as much as music can be taken seriously). Something I find impossible to do with any other Bal-Sagoth album because they simply sound like a cheesefest.
Imo, music looses credibility when it sounds too cheesy and cliched.

Well Edenbridge are my favourite band, and lets not forget (some of) the masters of Classical music too!

I think it's patently obvious that the last track on Let Mortal Heroes... 'Farewell' is the greatest Summoning song.
