Dark Descent Records
"AGELESS SUMMONING was inspired by the otherworldly death metal of Steve Tucker era Morbid Angel and the discord of Immolation. We try to emulate the sludgy malevolence and desolate atmospheres of the likes of 'Gateways To Annihilation' and 'Here In After'", declares vocalist Ali Lauder.
A brief, but precise account of the hellscapes evoked by U.K.’s AGELESS SUMMONING, whose debut album "Corrupting The Entempled Plane" is due out on Dark Descent Records.
"We felt that the unique atmosphere and mythos conjured by that slower-paced, brutal, and hypnotic style were underappreciated and overlooked, and we didn't know of many bands doing things in that vein, so we thought we'd try it ourselves."
Whilst admiration of the US American masters is unquestionable, AGELESS SUMMONING display a jaw-dropping level of originality in their approach to the sub-genre.
"Our goal has never been to just imitate what has come before, but we're not trying to hide our influences either. We include plenty of deliberate references, but we're also trying to develop our sound and continue the exploration of vast and desolate otherworlds."
Featuring members of such long-running U.K. acts as Of Spire & Throne, Haar, Úir, Scordatura, and Abyssal, the band has several combined decades of desecration under their belts. Wrapped in one of the most stunning and sinister Paolo Girardi artworks in recent memory, "Corrupting The Entempled Plane" is not to be missed.
