Sagas and myths culled from J.R.R. Tolkien's vast universe are the black blood that courses through Summoning's veins, and "With Doom We Come" is the ultimate soundtrack to a fantastic journey!
Ever since the release of the debut album "Lugburz" (1995), Summoning has proven to be the true guardian 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.
Over eight tracks, "With Doom We Come" indulges all things sublime and majestic, while grandiose keyboard backgrounds and mystical intros weave pure atmosphere contrasting with raw black metal. Opener "Tar-Calion" is a fitting ode to the last king of the island of Númenor, while "Carcharoth" tells the bloodthirsty tale of Arda's mightiest wolf.
The track listing for the album is:
6. Night Fell Behind
8. With Doom I Come
