MEET The Summoned
Originating in the mill city of Lowell, MA The Summoned was formed in the winter of 2007. Since the beginning, they had one goal in mind and that was to always push the limits to what heavy metal is supposed to be. Utilizing their various separate influences including Shaun’s passion for progressive metal, Stephen’s fascination with mainstream metal, and Jarred’s fondness of guitar virtuosos, they utilized those styles to create the sound you hear today.
WHAT DO THEY SOUND LIKE?
The Summoned uses technical metal and solid grooves to move people. The precise riffs along with a frantic onslaught of sounds put The Summoned among the likes of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Between the Buried and Me and the Faceless.
"A mixture of brainy tech-death and frantic mathcore, this debut album from Boston tech-metallers The Summoned will undoubtedly find a great deal of fans."
"The Summoned are a very modern style band with a great deal of intellect, yet still a rough-edge that comes off well onstage."
