SUMMONING THE LICH, 'UNITED IN CHAOS', OUT NOWFeb 26, 2021
St. Louis, Missouri's SUMMONING THE LICH have today released their debut album, United In Chaos, via Prosthetic Records. The album is a fully realised amalgam of blistering technical death metal and fantasy storytelling, acting as the first installment in a trilogy of albums. Accompanying the album release, the band have also today released a visually entrancing lyric video for The Gatekeeper.
Taking inspiration from the best elements of Lord of the Rings, Magic The Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons, and Adventure Time, and wrapping it up in a fantastical death metal parcel, SUMMONING THE LICH has an attention to detail and commitment to storytelling that is second to none. United In Chaos tells the tale of the rise of the Lich and fall of the Kingdom Rodor - and the spread of his wicked influence across the land as his power grows.
SUMMONING THE LICH's
debut album follows a well-received, self-titled demo and live dates
alongside heavy-hitters such as Origin, Beneath The Massacre, and
several stops on the Summer Slaughter tour. Having honed their craft,
they entered Sicktones Studios studio with producer Jack Daniels in Cape
Girardeau, Missouri in September 2019. With mastering completed by John
Douglass, the result is a technical, abrasive journey through
fantasy-driven, modern death metal.
On United In Chaos, SUMMONING THE LICH haven’t just championed a fantasy world, they’ve created one in their own vision; this release marking merely the first chapter in a trilogy of albums that explores the outer limits of their imaginations. By inserting their storytelling chops into songs crammed with memorable hooks and meaty riffs, SUMMONING THE LICH have invited listeners to roll the dice and join the adventure.
