Is Minas Morgul worth getting into? I'm really only familiar with Stronghold and Oath Bound, both of which I enjoy, but when I first listened to Minas Morgul the other day it felt a bit juvenile, or silly even. I made a little pharaoh dance to the track Orthanc.
Yes. The composition is sound, if not the synth quality, but it was the mid-90's, Summoning probably didn't have access to higher end equipment at the time. Still, The Passing of Grey Company makes me cringe everytime.
Also, check into Let Mortal Heroes Sing Your Fame.
I think you/we should dig a bit deeper into the era of the classics(early 90's) and discern quality between them. I have started somewhat of a chronological list of late 80's/early 90's Death and Black Metal albums and demo's. The one line review can be quite useful in cutting out the less developed, more imitation than orginal quality, chaff from that era, whereas a less innocent attempt or one made to appease a label can be given something more scathing. Both of those categories can be relegated to one list, whilst the actual quality releases can be relegated to another.
