minas morgul meaning tower of black magic as adapted from the lord of the rings books is the second album by austrian black metal outfit and continues their obsession with the lord of the rings and is a difficult album to fully appreciate on some levels as while black metal in definition the band throw in some very original sounds into the mix such as music you would expect in ancient times,such as music that would be played when a king was entering a building,hard to describe for sure but its an ecclectic mix for sure.The vocal style is pure black metal and the guitars have a necro sound but at times the keyboards take offer along with various other instruments so it isnt straight forward black metal by any means.

The album isnt perfect,at times its overdone and the songs lose their sparkle 8 minutes into them for example and thats a shame but tracks like 'the passing of the grey company', 'orthanc'and the spine tingling 'the legend of the master-ring' have plenty of brilliant moments within,this is an album that may change the meaning of black metal if you think there is only one way to perform it.

Ok, I've worked my way backwards with this act - from most recent to the earliest.
This is a bit raw compared to the later albums, but for 1995 and basically the debut album (in terms of their 'classic' sound) it's a good effort!
There are a few things that stand out against the later releases though:
The guitar is more upfront, amd much more traditional Black Metal in style - fast, tremolo picking. The vocals are a bit more full on necro (one or two slightly over the top vocal fx that irritate at times!) and the drums; as usual, they are electronically programmed but there is more emphasis on speed and double bass drum styles rather than the marching into battle/martial styles that have become their standard rhythm of choice.
There's a lot of synths, and in places they sound a little 'low budget' but again, this was 13 years ago, cash would have been tighter and Symphonic keyboards were still advancing. The ideas are good, even if the sounds are a little too artificial! Don't be put off - Remember the Evil Dead movie, the stop motion FX?? Yes, it was a bit on the cheap side BUT it worked - same with the keyboards here! There's one part where the guitars, drums & vocals are all at full pelt with the keyboards sounding really euphoric (a bit like Satyricon's Mother North) and it almost sounded like a Black Metal Rave! And I mean that in a good way!
We really are deep into Middle Earth lyrically, and it's the darker places mostly, your Mordor's and Isengard's etc! What Summoning do very well is to achieve the FEELING of Tolkien & I must admit it's difficult to not think of the Peter Jackson movies despite this being a good 5 years
prior. I guess, that's a compliment to Summoning, that they inspire such imagery!

First of all it is worth noting that the album was produced in 1995, and as many fans of Black Metal will attest, production quality of such recordings at the time seem to have started off on the poorer side of things. However this is not such an example, and Minas Morgul has a clearer aspect to its production that makes it easier on the ear.
The album, as do many from the Summoning discography, takes from the work of JRR Tolkien and translates it into a musical format. Try not to think too much about the LoTR OST when you buy this, because the two are worlds apart, not least because the album was devised solely by Protector and Silenius (with due credit to Tolkien too). Think less orchestral, but no less atmospheric.
Continuing with the atmospheric theme, the album features a variety of tracks to lose oneself in, from the brief rumbling of 'Orthanc' through to the lengthier 'Passing of the Grey Company', to the quick pace of 'Dagor Bragollach', and the almost chilling melodies of 'Legend of the Master Ring'.
Where the album falls down is down mostly to the listener, but this reviewer believes that several of the tracks are forgettable at best, and that the sound is at times a little too reminiscent of keyboard compositions. However these are considerations that do not detract too much from an album that has stood the test of time and established Summoning as unique within the Black Metal genre.

HASH(0x978d52c4) out of 5 stars Summoning's best 3 Jun. 2001
By Rinalds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I fell in love with this album the first sight :) Beautiful melodies, great keyboards, scary voices and majestic emotion. It takes you back to those dark medieval times when dragons were in the sky, bards and heroes roamed the land, elves hunted in the woods, dwarves carved deep caves in the ancient hills and trolls patrolled the mountain passes, when elder gods walked the earth, when moonlight was young and magic was strong, and sword was the highest judge...
Masterpiece.

HASH(0x978d5318) out of 5 stars Great for Tolkien whorshipers! 13 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Summoning make the ultimate soundtrack to the Lord of the Rings trilogy. While most medieval music bands make songs of bards singing of marvelous events, Summoning make the soundtrack that would be playing while the events were occuring. Really makes you feel like you are in Tolkien's beautiful world
And don't let their monster voices scare you, they just add to the Middle-Earth athmosphere

HASH(0x98a2954c) out of 5 stars enjoyable 25 Nov. 2007
By J. L. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Yeah this is pretty cool stuff, can't wait to get more of their CD's to see what sounds they create. This CD is basically 100% atmosphere, so if you like that kind of music then this is probably the CD for you. Add on to it the descent lyric work even thought it uses a pre-establish and popular world Middle Earth.

Dagor Bragolloch (sp) was my favorite song, but they are all pretty good, like Orthanc, Ungolianth, and passing of the gray company.

Try this band out of you like atmospheric sounds with a catchy tune to every song and growling vocals. It can get redundant if you listen to it a lot, and I think this mostly has to do with the beat not varying very much. Regardless, this music is great to listen to while driving, doing homework, playing games, reading, etc. because it has that "background quality" or whatever.

HASH(0x978d55a0) out of 5 stars An epic black metal album 3 Mar. 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The sound here cultivated by Austrian black metal pioneers is for the most part quite independent of that of the Norwegians (except for, of course, the famed tremolo picked riff). Despite utilising keyboards that sound not unlike something from a 90s fantasy/adventure TV series, the overall effect, considering the elegantly crafted guitar riffs, is breathtaking. Songs may last a little too long for their own good (rarely will an actual song not pass the 6 minute mark) but if you are willing to get lost in the atmosphere of it all, that aspect of the album and, indeed, Summoning in general, will not bother you.

HASH(0x978d5540) out of 5 stars Minas Morgul the Dead City of Ithilien 13 July 2013
By Warren - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Minas Morgul is a great f'n masterpiece the songs are really thought out and plus this is the true sound of Summoning though Lugburz was the first album Minas Morgal is the first album to incorporate the true Summoning sound. Yes this is a freaking awesome album songs are well played with some weird video game sounds and such but still is a great album. Recommend to any Summoning Fan
