Summoning - Might and Glory
I honestly have no idea what people see in this band. I feel like I'm listening to a long intro to something... that never comes.

Try (2001) Summoning - Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame first. That's my personal favourite.

On the Verge of the Worlds (Prologue) from (2006) Munruthel - Epocha Vodoleya.
Quite similar to Nokturnal Mortum.

Sigh - Musica In Tempora Belli

The song title couldn't have been better realized...

I agree with BasqueStorm - Start with that album, specifically the song "Farewell" and the rest will happen from there, or at least, that's what happened for me.

I'm going to listen to it now, I think.

So is 'Oath Bound' just not a good album of theirs then? I got it about a year ago, and it just does nothing for me. Still, I want to like Summoning, so I'll take your advice and check out 'Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame'. Thanks!

Nah, Oath Bound is an awesome album, not sure you'll like their other stuff if you don't like it. Perhaps check their earlier material? Minas Morgul and Nightshade Forests are awesome.

I think it's the most "balanced" album.

(2006) Summoning - Oath Bound is a good album but it got boring pretty fast for me.
P.S: Fuck! Last Summoning album is from 2006?!?

LOL!
Purgatorium from (2012) Sigh - In Somniphobia.
Dr. Mikannibal's vocals are the shit! I remember when we saw Sigh (and her!) at Hellfest 2010! Burning bibles while covered in blood and with some angel wings in her back! Amazing!

Virgin Steele - Mind, Body, Spirit, off Invictus

"RISE! On the wings of truth!
To the Sun we know, that forever lives..... INSIIIIIIIIIIIIIDE!!!


In his heyday, DeFeis was one of the most triumphant sounding vocalists in all of metal. His voice bled courage and conviction.

Manilla Road - Invasion

Let's hear this beast. The artwork is fantastic, and of course, it's great to have lyrics!

In hindsight, I am adding this album to my best of 2012 list.

Thy Majestie - Farewell

Anyone heard ShiHuangDi yet? Never heard their old stuff but this is first rate proggy power metal with no cheese or anything. Very straight, serious music with great vocals, soaring instrumentation and some nicely ambitious songwriting. Fans of Black Halo-era Kamelot, recent Stratovarius or classic Pagan's Mind will eat this up.

Opeth - I Feel the Dark

Haven't listened to this album in a good while, but I just found out that Opeth and Katatonia are touring here in April and it put me in the mood.

Shatter Messiah - Buried in Black, off God Burns Like Flesh

I think that Greg Wagner might be between my favorite modern metal vocalists now. He's like a mix of Bobby Ellsworth, David Wayne and Warrel Dane on PCP.
