SUMEN

Let´s create Death Metal songs together!

SUMEN is a Death Metal project I founded in 2020. My name is Michael Schulze and I´m a drummer from Berlin, Germany. Due to family and professional reasons I am not able to do rehearsals regularly or to play concerts. But I wanted to create Death Metal Music! So the idea of SUMEN was born.

The aim of SUMEN is to write, record and release songs. I composed a first song called "Diabolical suffering". I ordered the other musicians to record it through Fiverr, which meant that I had to pay for their performances. But this is not an option for the future! I am looking for musicians from all over the world who want to join SUMEN. Read more

The lyrical concept:
The Black Death was one of the deadliest pandemic recorded in human history. Between 1346 and 1353 the plaque resulted in the deaths of up to 25 million people in Europe - which is one third of the former population. No one was safe, anyone could be the next to die - that´s what the song is about.

Diabolical Suffering

(The burning of Cölln)

The lyrical concept:
In the Middle Ages Berlin was a double city, consisting of the cities of Berlin and Cölln. The relationship between the two cities was tense and marked by mutual distrust. In 1378 a fire destroyed large parts of Cölln. Despite requests for help, the Berliners refused to help. This song describes the fire catastrophe and the feelings of the Cöllner inhabitants when they were abandoned by the Berliners.
