Just noticed while checking out the bands page that their status is on hold? Anyone one any idea what is happening in the Summoning camp at present? It has been 5/6 years since the release of "Oathbound". I hope this does not become a long term thing.

I've been wondering the same thing. I used to check in on their website every now and then, but there haven't been updates there in ages.

I need one more Summoning album.

I recall rumors about one of the members struggling with severe health problems (possibly a heart attack or something along those lines); I really hope all is well with them. And yes, the world will always need more Summoning, that's something beyond debate.

Silenius had a heart attack a few months ago and everything related to music got kinda left aside for a while, no idea where they are now.

Silenius suffered a heart attack? That fucking sucks. Maybe Richard can release another Ice Ages album while Summoning is on hold.

I heard about the alleged heart attack but I could never find confirmation from the band about it so I ended up assuming it was some retarded internet rumour. Did it actually happen? Is there a source? Let's all write letters to the members and beg them to do one more album.

That's sucks...hope all turns positive for Silenius. We need his screams, Protector's screams and their songwriting genius.

Fuck, I did not expect to hear about a heart attack? That could answer a lot of questions I guess. If true I hope he makes a good recovery, we need more Summoning.

Let's hope that we get more music from the guys in the future!

Shit, so the whole heart attack thing is true? This blow hard, I'm a big fan of Silenius and I enjoy several bands he's (been) involved with greatly - apart from Summoning, I'm a huge Abigor fanboy, and I greatly enjoy Amestigon as well. My best wishes to him.

Speaking of Silenius, it seems there's a new Kreuzweg Ost album out. It's not Summoning, but it's something. Gonna have to check it out. Yeah, and I also hope the guy's doing okay and that we're getting new Summoning material in the future, whenever that may be.

I haven't checked out Kreuzweg Ost's music yet, but if this means that Silenius is back in action (and we can therefore assume he's doing better by now) then I'm welcoming this new release with open arms, even if it's a recording of the band members farting and burping in the studio.

The album is available:

http://www.coldspring.co.uk/mail_order/csr141cd.php

So good news, its seems that Silenius is better so he should be able to record new music with Summoning, if they feel inspired of course.

I had thought the heart attack was just a rumor as well, although I still would prefer that it was and they were just taking forever. But as it seems true I do hope him the best of luck in the future from further medical tragedies.

That's what I read on this site but we still don't have a source?

Found the source for this rumour:

http://summoning.yuku.com/topic/865/Whe ... ing?page=2
which is quoting from Legacy magazine, http://666kb.com/i/bwfj2xmvxivznzjko.jpg

Seems real.

Thanks!

Quote:
I exhume this old topic to say that one of the reasons behind the delay is that Silenius had an heart attack. I read it only a few days ago, but it apparently happened this summer. The news was also on a german metal zine called Legacy, who interviewed Protector. I didn't find the issue, but I found this pic of it: http://666kb.com/i/bwfj2xmvxivznzjko.jpg

Image

For the not-german speaking people, the beginning of the interview sounds like this: There was a delay in providing to the zine some news about the duo and about the new album because "the colleague Silenius had an heart attack, and we absolutely don't have to underestimate that kind of health issues [= "there's nothing to joke about"]. Now as in the past the things are going very slowly", and "there are some new riff fragments and deeply elaborated songs, too. But some of the core ideas are still missing".
But I read somewhere that Silenius now feels better, and I think there's nothing more to worry about.
