Summon the Dead is Flames' third studio album (following the live EP ?Live at the Slaughterhouse?). This album sees the band moving into a more thrashy paths than the two previous ones. If the two previous releases had their own distinct and characteristic speed/thrash sound, this one leans towards bands like Exodus, Slayer and Dark Angel. Songs are definitely faster and heavier. The sound is at very high standards, very distorted with sharp riffs and (mostly) crazy solos, like Slayer's. If you are into the genre, especially into American and German thrash metal between 1985 and 1990, this album will surely appeal to you!
