Catch A Glimpse Of Madness With “Of Black Horizons” Off “Chaos Vector”
Knoxville’s Summoner’s Circle are purveyors of doom, horror and epicness channeled through a spectacular theatrical performance that has been playing across the nation since 2015. The latest from the band is a Lovecraftian adjacent cosmic horror concept album “Chaos Vector”. It is their third full-length album following 2019’s “Become None” and 2018’s “Tome”; they now have a second single from this album, entitled “Of Black Horizons”.
The single is the first full song on the album. It opens with a fast and aggressive kick in the jaw and maintains that energy throughout. Lyrically, this song is a warning of impending doom. The band explains further:
“We wanted the album to start with an up-tempo heavy hitter. We wrote this as a future set opener to get the crowd going right from the start. The song is about a cosmic horror vastly older than the very universe and how nothing can stop its insatiable hunger now that it has its many eyes set on our world. No religion, be it perceived as good or evil, can stand up to the very real might of an all-powerful and all cruel elder god.”
Acknowledging that this past year has been difficult for everyone, the band explains the delay in releasing this album:
“We figured early in 2020, before the pandemic hit, that we would finish the album, get it released and immediately get back to touring. That didn’t happen. Now there is hope for the future, and this amazing album we sat on for over a year is finally being released. We couldn’t be happier with how it turned out - a concept album that was first conceived over two years ago is now here.”
“Chaos Vector” was written to tell a story, each song is a chapter in this tale and this album is but a single volume in a larger epic which Summoner’s Circle is continually writing.
Horrific but with a dark and beautiful twist, “Chaos Vector” is not for the faint of heart, but for those who are willing to go on an epic, progressive journey through madness. It is recommended for fans of Behemoth, Immortal and Opeth.
