Ever since the release of their debut album Lugburz (1995) SUMMONING have proven themselves to be the true guardians of Middle Earth! What started out as a project deeply rooted in traditional black metal took an epic turn in the following years – evergreens like Dol Guldur (1996) and Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame (2001) bear witness to a continuously refined soundscape. Five years after Old Mornings Dawn, Protector and Silenius have turned over a new leaf in their bottomless saga: titled With Doom We Come, SUMMONING finally unveil first and hotly anticipated details about their upcoming opus, which is set to be released on January 5th 2018 on Napalm Records!
A doomy stoner metal Pink Floyd tribute project spearheaded by Austin, Texas-based Sword guitarist Kyle Shutt, the aptly named Doom Side of the Moon began in early 2017 as a salute to the 50th anniversary of the legendary English psych/classic rock outfit. Comprising Shutt, fellow Sword-mates bassist Bryan Richie and drummer Santiago Vela III, vocalist Alex Marrero (Brownout, Brown Sabbath), saxophonist Jason Frey (Black Joe Lewis, Hard Proof), and keyboardist Joe Cornetti (Croy & the Boys), the band released its eponymous debut, a complete reworking of Pink Floyd's seminal 1973 classic Dark Side of the Moon, in August 2017.
