I'd rather have polls than shitty 'appreciation threads' which makes me think of overweight uspm nerds sucking eachothers dicks unless one would bravely dare to come out with opinion that The X Album is more of 8.25ish than a solid 8.5/10 record, and besides that he recently had a thought that Y vocalist was superior on The Y album anyway, which obviously ends up in massive shitstorm and his ostracism from the community.


Nostalgia voted for Dol Guldur.

This place has polls of steel. Polls of steel. Polls polls polls polls polls...

Dol Guldur was my first, and it does have a very magical atmosphere about it, I guess that one stuck as the best for me. However, Stronghold was a huge album when it came out and I couldn't get Long Lost To Where No Pathway Goes out of my head for months. Their most guitar driven work certainly. There's a very painful missing of a note on Where Hope And Daylight Die by the female singer, but a minor flaw on such a great album... (2:12, OUUUUCH!).

Minas Morgul by the way, is a strange one. The first half of the album is far worse than the latter half, where it clearly gets more interesting. This is one of those bands that I periodically play in chronological order.

Edit: I'm stupid and have no reading comprehension skills.

On topic:
Hard fucking choice, but had to go with Let Mortal Heroes...

Better polls and discussion on actual metal bands than gay threads about cutting yourself for Justin Bieber.

So When I first heard Minas Morgul, I can't say I really cared for it. Overtime thought I must say that that album has really grown on me. I'm not sure how I feel about Summoning as a whole yet cause I'm really only into Minas Morgul. I'm interested to see the results of this poll; Might have to track down the leading album. Need to hear Minas Morgul now...

You can't really go wrong with any Summoning material. Lugburz isn't quite as good or well developed as the rest though - more standard bm than the stellar records to come later.

Oath Bound is a brilliant album - more Martial Industrial than BM in that that there is not much guitar on it. I like them all, but I think the latest is the winner.

Yeah, I probably would have voted if it wasn't for memories coming with Dol Guldur. I don't know why people think it's average album (besides Land of the Dea praise).

It was very hard for me to pick only one favourite out of these close to perfect albums, but I chose Nightshade Forests.

Summoning used to be my favourite black metal band. I think I own everything by them except for their latest album. Haven't listened to them in a long time but I still rate them very highly. Hard to pick, but I went with Minas Morgul.

I don't understand why almost everyone think that Land of the Dead is the best song of Summoning. Don't get me wrong, it's a great song, but in my opinion it isn't even near of being the best song in Oath Bound, let alone the best song in the whole discography.

Sorry about that Laughing

Minas Morgul is the only Summoning I've listened to properly.
