Interviews: Summoner´s Circle


In this new occassion we have had the opportunity to interview the Metal/Black Metal band Summoner´s Circle from USA. Check out the interview and this band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1.Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that? 

Before Summoner's Circle was a band, previous rhythm guitarist, Magog, and I had gotten together to jam a few riffs and see what might come of it. I often give working titles to the riff combos I come up with, and Magog pitched a working title of "Summoner's Circle" for that very first group of riffs we strung together. I said, "I like it, but that would make a better band name." So, the entire thing started there. Interesting note...That very first riff combination ended up being the foundation for the song Minotaur.

2.Why did you want to play this genre? 

I really came at this project with an attitude of wanting to write material interesting to me and to try to avoid being pigeon-holed into one particular genre. I wanted to do something epic in scale, where there were no restrictions on song length, time signatures, etc. We are all big fans of epic horror and fantasy and we wanted to write material that would appeal to nerds like us.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed? 

Yes. We were all either friends or acquaintances familiar with each other’s previous works.

4. Each band member favourite band?

Gog: It differs daily. If I have to pick only one, I'll say Black Sabbath.
Absalon: That's difficult. If we are talking metal, I'm going to say Acid Bath.
BG Scios: Goatwhore
Y'takt: Rage Against the Machine
Blind: Scar Stmmetry
Sol: Queen

5. Who or what inspires you to write songs

It can be anything. Usually it stems from a mood or feeling I have that I try and express musically. It usually starts very simple and grows from there as I try and find ways to make it more interesting and expressive. Lyrically, as I mentioned, influences are driven by classic horror, cosmic horror, occult, epic fantasy and sci-fi.

6. Where was your last gig?

Decatur, Alabama

7. Where would you like to act? 

Personally, in any film directed by Ridley Scott. Blade Runner is beautiful, amazing and my all-time favorite movie.

8. Whom would you like to feature with? 

Jennifer Lawrence or Lady Gaga.

9. Whom not? 

I'm open to anyone. If Sharknado 27 needs a dark, brooding Summoner, I'll do it.

10. Any of you has ever suffered from stage fright? Any tip for beginners on how to beat that? 

Yes. Practice, preparedness and experience are the best remedies I've found.

11. What bands have inspired you the most? 

As a guitarist I have quite a few bands and/or musicians that have inspired me. Iommi, Randy Rhodes, Michael Schenker, Buddy Guy, Billy Gibbons, Mike McCready, Mikael Åkerfeldt, and Ed Muldell to name a few.

12. What's the weirdest thing a fan has ever asked you for? 

To have their child be our sacrifice at the start of our live show.

13. What do you think of your fans? 

We are nothing without our legion of Acolytes and Nones.

14. What do you think of our site?

It is well put together and has good representation for all varieties of metal, not just Core. We dig it.

15. Something add?


Our first full-length, Tome, will be available physically and digitally all over on June 1, 2018. We are very thankful for the interview and hope to add to our legion of Acolytes and Nones as we hit the road soon.
