Summoning - Stronghold (1999)
Well this is a pretty interesting find. Who thought classical music would go so well with atmospheric black metal? Actually, it sounds really good even on paper, and even better in its execution. This album is epic and has a medieval feel. It's very hypnotic as the band like to take things slow and gradually develop their pieces. One could easily imagine this music in an alternate soundtrack for Lord of the Rings or Skyrim. I'll definitely be coming back to this band for more.
