A band known for their passionately fierce and ear crushing live shows, Sumeru’s onstage energy is exerted with an almost fanatical dedication that it verges on a cult-like rite of sonic exorcism and visceral upheaval. Add in the long-crafted musicianship of each member of this Sydney 5 piece, their ability to peel subconscious layers off of their audiences was apparent since their inception in 2009.
Having shared the stage with foreign imports and domestic legends such YOB, Torche, Nick Oliveri (back up band & support), Windhand, Nails, Blood Duster, Beastwars, IEXIST and Lo! Sumeru now stand firmly grounded in the Australian heavy music underground as a defining force of pure riff fury and indomitable low-end groove.
“An evolution of descent for Sumeru into much darker and unholy territory, ‘Summon Destroyer’ sees a turning away from the light of their well-known craftings of bluesy riff-sick grooves, and a return to more blackened doom and deathly roots.
Evermore crushing than previous offerings, Sumeru’s next level of newly discovered ferocity is backed by a lyrical spirituality that seeks to take listeners minds beyond any self-imposed jurisdictions they might impose on themselves.
And if their patient beginnings and ability to constantly push themselves into new territory showed Sumeru’s maturity, ‘Summon Destroyer’ highlights a musicianship full of integrity and an ability to produce an album free from the pretense of the manufactured modern day.
This is live and real sound, there is no facade here.”
A heavy and epic sounding tune that will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end. It plays out like an epic war-cry to the Sludge/Stoner Metal world where the weapon of choice is the deadly destructive riffs that Sumeru abandon all hope with.
