    It's best to listen to the entire "Magic of Nature" album, it's their masterpiece and easily one of my top ten albums all time time:

    Summoning is uniquely good at that style. There's a couple other decent bands, but generally I'd rather lean more atmoblack or dungeonsynth rather than straddle the line as they do, but they do it well. Tough to top Minas Morgul IMO.

    Favourite Summoning song:



    Nightshade Forests, Elfstone, and The Passing of the Grey Company are close runner-ups.

    Summoning is pretty revered within the metal underground though. I've seen opinions that they're the only good black metal band still going after black metal supposedly died after 1996 or so. Funny, considering a lot of the time they're barely even metal, let alone black metal. I don't really bother with them post Stronghold, but I do love Dol Guldur and Nightshade Forests.

    I'm no great fan of them, I've stated that a few times on UM actually iirc, but in that specific field they're one of if not the best.

    Dol Guldur is excellent and some of their albums are fairly strong, but at this point their sound as become so formulaic that it sounds like it's made by a computer program. I basically knew every note of Old Mornings Dawn before it even came out.

    Summoning are the bestest. Black metal? Who cares. I'd also like to give a strong nod to Caladan Brood. Wish those fuckers would hurry the fuck up with their sophomore effort.

    Summoning are like the Dead Can Dance of black metal. They're pretty much perfect in every way, and throughout their discography in my opinion. Stronghold is my favorite album by them.

    There's a weird electronic beeping that first appears around 0:31 of that song and appears periodically after that. I'm not sure if it's intentional or a problem associated with ripping the album, but I can't fucking stand that - WTF?!

    :tickled: What a fucking stupid comment. Dead Can Dance have eclectic and multidimensional sound. Each album introduced sounds, arrangements, and instruments from different cultures, and no two albums are the same. Summoning, on the other hand, repeat the same formula song after song, album after album. I take it you love both bands. The similarities end there.

    Translation: CF has a strong, evidence-based point that tears down my comparison and I can't respond to in a legitimate way. Let me pull out the "pretentious" card!

    Is the rest of your music taste just as "eclectic"?

    I would say Summoning are more like the Enya of black metal. :D
