Summon are a band from Portugal that plays a mixture of black, doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Parazv II Zilittv" which will be released in April by Iron Bonehead Productions.
Dark yet ritualistic soundscapes start off the album along with some occult style chanting before going into more of a heavier direction along with some death metal growls a few seconds later before going into a very fast direction which also uses a great amount of brutal blast beats.
Elements of doom metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the songs while the music also brings in black metal screams and influences in some parts of the tracks along with a couple of the songs being very long and epic in length as well as the faster sections of the songs also bringing in a decent amount of tremolo picking,
The riffs also bring in a great amount of dark sounding melodies while the guitar solos and leads are utilized are also done in a very dark fashion and as the album progresses synths can also be heard briefly along with some of t he songs also bringing in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the vocals are mostly done in an evil occult whispering style.
Summon plays a musical style that takes black, doom and death metal and mixes them in with a ritualistic sound to create something very different, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover sepulchral magick and death themes.
In my opinion Summon are a very great sounding ritualistic mixture of black, doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Whisper of The Black Moon" "Shapes Of Darkness Transcending" and "In Odorem Mortis". 8/5 out of 10.
