Band History - Summon (Online July 2003)



SUMMON was formed in the spring of 1991 with the intent of creating extreme, brutal Metal with influences like BATHORY, VENOM, BLASPHEMY, BEHERIT, CARCASS, MORBID ANGEL, CELTIC FROST, etc. By mid-1991, SUMMON began to perform live and managed to record a 4-track basement demo entitled "Devourer Of Souls" (no longer available), but the band split up before it was released.

It would not be until 1995, after failed attempts with other efforts, that SUMMON would be exhumed from its shallow grave. By the winter of 1995, SUMMON recorded their first true demo entitled "Fire Turns Everything...Black". In the summer of 1996 they recorded a demo CD "Dark Descent Of Fallen Souls" (limited to 1000 copies). Much of 1997 and 1998 the band played numerous shows across the US, and continued to gain speed and velocity behind their already destructive sound.

By 1999, SUMMON created a full-length release that finally captured the extreme chaos they had always envisioned, "Baptized By Fire" (April 2000 on Baphomet/Necropolis Records). It devastates all in its path without mercy!

SUMMON are currently writing new material and preparing to tour Europe as well as the United States. SUMMON strive to stay uncorrupted by a scene littered with idiot savants and fantasy dictators, and by staying true to their love of extreme brutal Metal...The future is infinite!
