Over the past weekend we went in for our second recording session of laying down guitar tracks with Evan Sammons. Shaun managed to get “The Grave Mistake” fully recorded and nearly finished “Fractal Patterns”, all he needs to do now for “Fractal Patterns” is lay down a sweet solo. Had to end early due to an incoming snow storm…again. The recording is sounding AWESOME and is only going to sound more monstrous once others bass and vocals are added. Based on the progress of recording it’s looking like it will be out in the summer. Stay tuned for more updates from the studio!
We would like to take this time to introduce to you our newest guitarist, Jarred Sullivan formerly of the band Abstract Paradigm. We’re really pumped to have Jarred as the newest addition to The Summoned. He played his first show with us last night and we can’t wait to play many more together. Be sure to come out to one of our shows and see him tear it up!
Bassist Justin Marchant has parted ways with The Summoned due to personal reasons. The split was mutual, we cherished every moment we had having him around and wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavors. Justin will be finishing up the album and filling in for select shows until a replacement is found.
With that said we are now officially looking for a new bassist. If you’re looking to play bass in a serious band and live around the Lowell, MA area below are some of the requirements for what we’re expecting in a new bassist.

Here it is…a little clip from the songs “The Pendulum Swing”, “Faradic” and “Built of Glass” off the new album “Sessions”. This is just a rough mix of drums and guitars recorded direct in using a Kemper Profiler until reamping begins. Click the play button to listen!
So here it is…we’re getting to that point where the album is truly coming together. In fact we have 9 songs with structures all completed. It’s going to clock in a little over 45 mins so definitely a great driving album! With that being said name of the album is titled “Sessions”. We’ll be recording with Evan Sammons from Last Chance To Reason. If we have some of the funds available we’ll be looking to record in Late September / Early October. It’s not easy being in an unsigned and dropping a few grand on an album definitely takes it’s toll financially. So we wanted to get your opinion. Should we do a crowd funding campaign to help raise money for the album? You can click the link below to vote! With that being said…the track listing.
“Sessions” ( Full Length)
1. The Pendulum Swing
3. Primogenial Inception
