Knoxville’s Summoner’s Circle are purveyors of doom, horror and epicness channeled through a spectacular theatrical performance that has been playing across the nation since 2015. The latest from the band is a Lovecraftian adjacent cosmic horror concept album “Chaos Vector”. It is their third full-length album following 2019’s “Become None” and 2018’s “Tome”; they now have a second single from this album, entitled “Of Black Horizons”.
The single is the first full song on the album. It opens with a fast and aggressive kick in the jaw and maintains that energy throughout. Lyrically, this song is a warning of impending doom. The band explains further:
“We wanted the album to start with an up-tempo heavy hitter. We wrote this as a future set opener to get the crowd going right from the start. The song is about a cosmic horror vastly older than the very universe and how nothing can stop its insatiable hunger now that it has its many eyes set on our world. No religion, be it perceived as good or evil, can stand up to the very real might of an all-powerful and all cruel elder god.”
Acknowledging that this past year has been difficult for everyone, the band explains the delay in releasing this album:
“We figured early in 2020, before the pandemic hit, that we would finish the album, get it released and immediately get back to touring. That didn’t happen. Now there is hope for the future, and this amazing album we sat on for over a year is finally being released. We couldn’t be happier with how it turned out – a concept album that was first conceived over two years ago is now here.”
“Chaos Vector” was written to tell a story, each song is a chapter in this tale and this album is but a single volume in a larger epic which Summoner’s Circle is continually writing.
Horrific but with a dark and beautiful twist, “Chaos Vector” is not for the faint of heart, but for those who are willing to go on an epic, progressive journey through madness. It is recommended for fans of Behemoth, Immortal and Opeth.

“Let the Summoning Begin…”
Summoner’s Circle is a six-piece theatrical metal band that blends elements of doom, death, black and progressive metal into what they refer to as simply Epic Metal.
For the band, every song in an incantation, every live performance is a Summoning, and everything they do is tied intrinsically to the mythology, or lore, they have created. The lore tells the story of the band’s origins, battles of divine conquest and showcases their creativity and vision, which sets the stage for a very entertaining live performance where bigger is better, and Epic is always the standard.
The Summoners released their first EP, entitled First Summoning, in late 2015. This was followed in 2016 by the single, Become None, and its B-side, Minotaur, both of which are included on their debut full-length release entitled Tome, which was released in June of 2018.
In May of 2019, Tome was repackaged and released as Become None via the Pavement Entertainment label.
In the spring of 2019, Summoner’s Circle joined Children of Bodom, Swallow the Sun and Wolfheart as part of Bodom’s Hexed North American Tour, gaining many new fans and excellent reviews.
In June of 2019, the Six signed a worldwide management deal with Extreme Management Group, Inc. who also manages Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, Misery Index and many others.
Summoner’s Circle’s second full-length album Chaos Vector is scheduled to be released in 2021 and will be accompanied by a Lovecraft-style cosmic horror short story written by the band. Each song is a chapter in the story.

“Summoners’ Circle have the whole package. Their songs are original and memorable, beautifully written, and hook the listener after the first listening. They have a great stage presence, and the theatricality and imagery of their live performances keep the fans talking about their experience way beyond the day of the show. I am honored to work on the production of their upcoming album.” – Yanic Bercier, Ph.D | Endorser of Yamaha Drums, Sabian, Vic Firth, Evans, AKG, RME, True-Systems, Engl, Ddrum
“Hooked the first time I saw this band play! No two shows are the same and I’m always left wanting more. It’s what music and show should be!” – Lee Abney | Pentagram/Place of Skulls
“These guys are serious about what they do and the costumes and imagery match the grandiose sound they produce.” No Clean Singing
“SUMMONER’S CIRCLE’s full-length debut gets near the 75-minute mark, and yet it succeeds in balancing complexity, heaviness, catchiness, mystery and melodrama to make sure its duration does not become overwhelming. an almost perfect record …especially its flawless production and its tight, inventive songwriting.” – Metal Temple
“Summoner’s Circle is the kind of band you go your whole life hoping to hear and when you finally do it’s even better than you expected. They are the culmination of a lifetime spent listening to music and finally finding something that fits where nothing else has. Plus, brutality aside, they’re just a fantastic group of otherworldly beings.” – Josh Martin 94.3 WNFZ
