Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: Most of their lyrics are inspired by Tolkien. They've also adapted lyrics from other authors, such as Creator/WilliamWordsworth and Sir Walter Scott, and some lyrics on ''Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame'' were inspired by Creator/MichaelMoorcock's Eternal Champion.
* SopranoAndGravel: Their vocals are mostly the typical MetalScream expected from BlackMetal, but they use clean choirs on some albums (mostly performed entirely by Protector and Silenius) as well. A good example is the title track of ''Old Mornings Dawn''. Additionally, one song, "Where Hope and Daylight Die", contains entirely clean singing from Protector's ex-girlfriend, Tania Borsky.

* LoudnessWar: The CDs from ''Stronghold'' onward were clipped. Vinyl editions, such as ''Old Mornings Dawn'', often got separate masters that were free from this problem.

Shortly after recording ''Lugburz'', Trondl was kicked from the band for being "a commercial-thinking asshole". Lederer and Gregor continued as a duo, and instead of getting a new drummer changed to keyboard percussion to produce a more epic, atmospheric style. They combined this with low-key guitars and multi-layered synthesizer and keyboard melodies mimicking a full orchestra, while retaining the growling vocals to produce what would become the trademark Summoning sound. Most of their lyrics were inspired by the works of Creator/JRRTolkien, with some songs taking lyrics straight from poems/songs in Literature/{{The Hobbit}} and Literature/{{The Lord of the Rings}}. Some of the songs on ''Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame'' are also inspired by the works of MichaelMoorcock.

* DoingItForTheArt: As is common for black metal musicians. They fired a drummer for being a [[ExactWords "commercial-thinking asshole"]]. They don't perform live, and once they have finished the songs they never edit or play them again, focusing on next projects instead.

* GenreBusting: After Lugburz they went from {{Black Metal}} to...atmospheric metal? Epic metal? Ambient metal? Summoning still classify themselves as "black metal" and most people [[SureWhyNot go with it]] just to simplify things.
