NYC’s Bloody Panda released their critically lauded sophomore
album Summon in late 2009 via Profound Lore Records.
Now, 20 Buck Spin has the honor of bringing this
harrowing, disturbing vision of doom to the analog format.
Characterized by a horror-inflected wall of amplifier
drone and stunning percussive arrangements that showcase
a variety of tempos, Summon is a one-hour journey
through the lowest depths and dankest dark chambers
of doom. Frontwoman Yoshiko Ohara conjures both Diamanda
Galas and Jarboe with her banshee-like screams,
howls and vocal exorcisms. There’s no doubt Summon is a
difficult masterpiece of modern experimentalist doom abstraction,
and it can now be “enjoyed” on four sides of pitch
