Summon The Crows/One More For The Gallows/Southern Lord Records/2011 CD Review

Summon The Crows are a band from Norway that plays a mixure of crust/punk, thrash and black metal and this is a review of their 2011 album "One More For The Gallows" which will be released by Southern Lord Records.


Drums range from midpaced to fast with a great amount of blast beats being utilized, hile the bass playing has a very heavy sound with alot of crust/punk style riffing.

Rhythm guitars range from midpaced to fast riffs that combine influences from thrash, crust/punk, and black metal while the lead guitars are very distorted sounding punk/metal guitar solos.

Vocals are mostly deep growls that have a black metal feel to them with some high pitched screams being used at times, while the lyrics cover everyday type themes with some songs being influenced by mythology, as for the production it sounds very heavy and raw but still professional enough to the point where you can hear all of the musical instruments.

In my opinion Summon The Crows are a very good blackened crust/punk/metal band and if you are a fan of this genre, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Slavedrivers Of Ur" "Black Hole" "Beasts Of The Night" and "The Trojan Whores". RECEMMONDED BUY
