Guest review by
Silent Creeper
Minas Morgul, the second Summoning album, was released just six months after their debut "Lugburz", when the band was still pretty unknown even if they were already under Napalm Records. This was also their breakthrough album, with which they became known to a larger metal audience and still remains as one of the most appreciated Black Metal releases.

Argh that super high pitched squeaky sound that plays in track 9 is unbearable! Rest ain't bad, Morthond is the highlight for me.

I prefer this over all Summoning releases

My second favorite, but it was released back in 1995 making it the father of all summoning albums after their turn to the atmospheric approach.

Album that introduced me to the band, will always be a special album for me. Love the album art too.

China was a neat
The synths at the start and most of the keyboards doesn't sound much like electronic instruments and very flute/wind instrument-like or maybe they were indeed trying for a artificial orchestral sound. Really haunting and evocative at any rate and very very atmospheric too. Couldn't enjoy it first after Lugburz and it took me quite a bit of time to adjust to this less metal and more symphonic/ambient sound. But damn, this is really good. And yeah that cover is breathtaking awesome.

Album must be re recorded, better all instruments mastering. band has good idea, and ideas about music, BM theory and philosophy, but band ptrodution and all things what makes music listeble. I don't get how tapes and demos can have cult status, same whit this band
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!
