The first track of Horna's 3rd full length album, Sudentaival, originally released in 2001. To get the best possible result for the sound of a planned vinyl-reissue, the original master tapes were obtained from Asta Studio, to completely re-mix & master the album.
Horna's mastermind Shatraug adds:
"Back in the late 90's and year 2000 when I wrote "Sudentaival" I knew the material was strong, as it still is, yet the album itself became a sum of bad production choices and a foreword for change. While it was the best work up to date, none of the members who were with me back then participated on any future full-length albums. Many of it's songs are still in our live repertoire and to me they sound as fresh as in the time they were written. However, how the album was mixed and mastered always bothered me until I took the time to obtain all the original files and had it remixed entirely - this is the vision represented here: full, rich and without unnecessary digital additions."
2001 debut of Hellenic Hateful black metal is now re-issued on high quality pro cassette with slipcase, featuring the Infamous Death Squad Rex cover and also incuding the extra tracks which appeared on that version....
WEREWOLF RECORDS, in conspiracy with HELLS HEADBANGERS, is proud to present SUMMON's classic debut album, Dark Descent of Fallen Souls, on vinyl LP for the first time ever. Hailing from the rustbelt wasteland of Michigan, SUMMON are one of the very first black metal bands to hail from American soil. Originally formed in 1991 and with ties to the equally cult Masochist, SUMMON were very much the proverbial black sheep in a landscape dominated by death metal. Nevertheless, feeding off the fiery acts overseas in Scandinavia as well as the despair and disgust in their homeland, the band made their official debut with the Fire Turns Everything Black demo in 1995, which would soon form the foundation for their blasphemous 'n' belligerent Dark Descent of Fallen Souls in '97. Grim and primitive but suffused with a sulfurous spirit, SUMMON's debut album saw the power-trio bash and thrash one mini-anthem after another, strafing against the dominant death metal of the day whilst not sacrificing any of its inherent power. Additionally, subtle and well-placed usage of synths added the requisitely moonlit atmosphere of the time. Altogether, Dark Descent of Fallen Souls is very much a record of its time, and yet, 20 years later, it's lost none of its hateful magick and, in fact, sounds remarkably fresh. Hail one of the unsung pioneers of American black metal, at long last on vinyl!
