Here we got 5 young
and hungry metalheads from the northern part of Sweden with the ages between 21 and 24 years.

Richard Thelin got a strong voice and sounds quite similar to Geoff Tate in
Queensryche in some of the tracks. Summoned

The opening track "Father Isak" is a rhythmic and easy-listening track
that starts the album with good singalong opportunities with influence by Helloween.
another strong track with good choruses and with powerfull singing from Richard.

In the Dream Theatre influenced "What Am I Supposed To Feel" they shows the wideness
in their repertoire! In the over 9 minutes long "Blum Dum Fairires And Pottery

"Lies" lands in over 7 minutes and is a orotund metal tune. Overall
this is a
great debut from Summoned Tide and I wish them all luck in the future.
