Trio português que vai ser em breve lançado pela Iron Bonehead.
"Aesthetics of Demise", nome do álbum que, inicialmente, vai ser lançado em tape, é composto por 5 temas que já tive a felicidade de ouvir... felicidade, porque me agarrou logo, já que o ambiente é tudo menos feliz. Combina talentosamente a intensidade e brutalidade do Death com a obscuridade, densidade e ambiência dolorosa do Doom. Muito bom!
Como disse, fiquem de olho... ou ouvido alerta.
Today, Iron Bonehead Productions sets June 30th as the international release date for the debut EP of Portugal's Summon, Aesthetics of Demise, on cassette tape format. A brand-new entity, Summon emerged in late 2016 as a gathering between N. and R. in which they decided to follow a sonority that transcends their soul and where they could give it a more cavernous feel, with an intensity of deep agony. Shortly thereafter, N. decides to move forward with composite themes, and then they decide to call J. to seal the covenant of a deadly entity. The lyrics are handled by N. in which he invokes all the blackness and splendor of death, the burden of enduring and wandering in a world of human flesh, and the infinite thirst for mass slaughter converting mankind into a cloak of bones.
Together, the hooded ghouls of Summon create a swirling, sulfurous mass of molten death-doom. The title Aesthetics of Demise is truly fitting: each tone and texture is buried under miles of human ash, the howls from underneath this abyss obscured yet further. So cavernous is Summon's miasma, even the uptempo segments across the EP feel like time slowed down and stretched apart. It's a diabolical disconnect that helps Aesthetics of Demise transcend the usual "sepulchral death metal" tropes, as the trio's songwriting is more a form of smashed-psyche sorcery. And yet, this is only the beginning for Portugal's Summon... "Death is our guide, and we are his scythe..."
