FIRST AND FOREMOST:
This is NOT going to be your run-of-the-mill “TRVE BLACK METAL” review of the year. If you are looking for something of that sort, I suggest you seek elsewhere! So please keep that in mind. This is an in-depth “study” and overview of their glorious work “With Doom We Come”, and a personal explanation of each song and musical and lyrical structure. I personally never even have considered Summoning to be a metal band to begin with, and I don’t think that they follow any trendy paths and stick to genres, fancy labels and what not. This is my personal opinion of course, and please read the review with respect and humility. Now please allow me, to allow you to throw away any preconceived notions and acquire some TRVE knowledge and wisdom.
This is certainly one of the finest poems ever written by Crowley, despite his bad image in media or in pop culture, he remains a major figure of the early 20th century’s Occult revival in Europe. He was quite an oppressed youth, because of his religious upbringing in the hostile and devoid of all freedom and free will religious environment in rural England. He traveled extensively, had a passion for mountain climbing, poetry, art and a good taste for life (who doesn’t have a good taste for life?), and in the end became one of the leading scholars of MAGICK and the OCCULT.
First and foremost I will start from the very beginning, and that means that I will try to explain my journey through various musical genres, gaming platforms and how i ended up where I stand right now. I want to point out first, that i completely abandoned video games and that i started to know more about tabletop role-playing games. I did not however abandoned producing music. A lot of things changed since those days and that is just the natural way of my personal development as an individual.
I’ve been a gamer pretty much through my entire conscious existence on this earth and i think i will remain one in one way or another. I remember that i always had a passion for few things. Music, fantasy literature, history, books in general, drawing stuff, and last but not least, video games.
