There's a ton of great music that is not metal. You are only hurting yourself by ignoring it.

Trailer is up, finally :

http://youtu.be/G9XTxXEcqLU

After one listen, the tune is already on repeat in my head, catchy. The guitars could be a tad bit more in the foreground and I surely hope the black metal vocals remain on the album.

Sounds great although those spoken parts are a little bit annoying. Preordered the golden vinyl version of the upcoming album and the golden vinyl version of Dol Guldur :P

I'm quite sure the spoken parts are not part of the song, but simply as a poetic description of what the new CD is about Just like a movie trailer.

I'm guessing they're a peek at the lyrics from the title track. They're printed on the new shirts after all. But it would have been nice to actually hear the vocals. Definitely left me wanting more though and I really love the imagery used in the video.

The voice over guy made me laugh. I just couldn't help but picture an old man who failed his whole life to break into the trailer voice over business, all pissed off that a gig for some metal band's new album was the best he could find.

The music though sounds excellent! Definitely going to be another kick-ass Summoning album, no doubt about it.

Ahhhh you are a weak boy. :D

The shiping costs are not cheap so perhaps I will order another cd or t-shirt. What a great excuse to buy another album hahaha.

And yes, the bonus tracks seem to be very interesting, mainly because of the song titles.

It's times like this that I really wish Napalm had as US branch, $41 + shipping is a little much. Might have to settle for the standard edition whenever it's available on Amazon or whatever. :(

Really like what I heard in the trailer though and I want to hear MOAR!

I know, I know haha just could not resist and my financial postion is pretty good at the minute thank fuck. The extras are a gimmick but its all about the bonus tracks. I would have felt more at ease if I could have bought direct from the artist as I do in most cases, hate paying large labels fees like :(

Nice one Zephirus, I was charge 9 euro postage for the limited cd? Wonder why it was more expensive than the vinyl postage.

Well, the shiping costs of Napalm are not cheap but I have seen much more expensive ones(mainly in Germany). And these guys are very nice, professional and they send always the items very fast (in 2/3 days you receive them). Moreover, this label has a lot of albums that I like so I usually send a couple of orders every year.

Some versions of the release have sold out already :o Be prepared for some insane ebay auctions.

They are a good label indeed bro but still know how to charge when they want to. Still glad I have it pre-ordered, now just to wait.....

Sounds great! I don't want any of the special edition bonus' except for the extra tracks... damn. I'll probably buy the regular cd and download those extras if I can.

I'm not sure what shipping costs if you live in Europe or elsewhere, but I live in the U.S.A. and shipping was just €7 for the gold vinyl. To me that's a fair price to pay for shipping from Germany to America. I've ordered from them before and the packages arrive very fast.

The horn about 50 seconds makes me laugh and the voice-over makes me cringe. I hope that's just for the trailer.

Sounds like it's gonna be good, it's very catchy.

Although one thing I've always wished for is that they used an orchestra instead of synthesizers, even if it was only on a few songs. They use synths to get the sounds of orchestral instruments anyways, so I think it would really breathe new life into their songs and really help their sound become more organic and lively, rather than so mechanical. Don't get me wrong, their stuff is still really good, but I just feel that if they orchestrated the synth parts with real instruments it would be amazing.

Plus, they could choose a group of musicians that they really like and maybe even play shows with them. Honestly, who WOULDN'T go pay to see that?

That's not a mistake on their part. Their music is heavily modeled after some of the early electronica artists of the 70's like Tangerine Dream. The consistent repetition in their songs is a dead giveaway. Making it less mechanical just wouldn't be Summoning.

I understand what you're saying, but I disagree that it wouldn't be Summoning. They wouldn't have to change their songwriting style at all, all I'm saying is replace the synths with real instruments playing the parts. I think it'd be fucking cool!

Then again though I'm just not huge on synthesizers in general. Too much of it to me makes it sound cheesy.

After reading about all the hassle Elend went through trying to work with legit musicians, I can completely understand why they steer clear.

Interesting point about the link between Summoning and Tangerine Dream, Claus Schutze etc. I though Oath Bound sounded a lot like Der Blutharsch or similar martial industrial acts.

Meh didn't do it for me from that sample. I prefer the rawer approach that still retained some black metal like Stronghold.

True, sometimes I think it would be interesting to see Summoning using some real orchestral arrangements, but I think they are too lazy to spent money on this, and in the end this "austere" use of equipments and arrangements is part of their original sound.

About the editions, well I can see that the limited edition is still available, it would be good if Napalm could inform about how many units last. :D

Samples on Amazon

So... this sounds fantastic. Interesting that they went back to more traditional "MIDI-ish" synth sounds, though it could just be the crappy sound quality of the samples that makes it sounds like that. This definitely sounds like Summoning sticking to the general formula but doing a lot to revitalize their sound. "Carahdras" in particular sounds very somber compared to their other works. June 7th can't come fast enough!

Holy shit those samples rule hard. "The White Tower" sounds like it'll be a total banger and I love how mellow "Caradhras" seems.
