SÜMER post-metal

With three guitarists and two vocalists among their ranks, SÜMER boasts many elements to their post-metal/prog-inspired sound. They nod to contemporary faves Karnivool, Cult of Luna and Gojira, but also classic names like Led Zeppelin, Soundgarden and Smashing Pumpkins. Appearances at celebrated festivals such as Bloodstock Open Air, UK TechFest and Euroblast, along with support slots opening for the likes of Uneven Structure, Voyager and Agent Fresco has seen SÜMER become an epic live act.
