The Deal is the debut album by American post-metal band Sumac. It was released on digital and CD formats through Profound Lore Records and on vinyl LP via SIGE Records on February 17, 2015. The album was recorded at Aleph and Litho studios in Seattle, Washington between July and August 2014. The album was mixed at GodCity Studios in Salem, Massachusetts by Kurt Ballou. The artwork was a collaborative effort between Aaron Turner and Faith Coloccia.

Sumac released its six-song debut album titled The Deal on February 17, 2015 through Profound Lore Records with Turner's own SIGE Records handling the vinyl pressing. Turner invited Brian Cook to be a session bassist for The Deal and "an nt member for live performances when possible," although he quickly became a full member of the band In June 2018 the band announced their third album Love in Shadow to be released on September 21, 2018 through Thrill Jockey. Sumac will release its second collaboration with Keiji Haino titled Even for Just the Briefest Moment Keep Charging This "Expiation" Plug in to Making It Slightly Better through Trost Records.

But The Deal isn’t an exercise in self-involved nostalgia; where his other projects largely homed in on carefully constructed frameworks, Sumac takes its strengths from a powerful fragmentation. Though listed as an "auxiliary" member, bassist Brian Cook provides a point of reference for the music’s hollowed-out qualities. Cook’s playing with Russian Circles, in addition to his past work with These Arms Are Snakes and Botch, has seen him at his most commanding when manipulating the lower end of the sound’s spectrum. That bellicosity is The Deal’s underpinning, giving the album a common thread to ground its otherwise improvisational focus. Venturing into free form is a bold move, especially given that with few exceptions, the other projects for the band's members are built around directed compositional frameworks.

Post Metal, Sumac, the deal, full album, 2015, Loading. y Bruce I already have bought this album and their 2nd one at their show, which is the best way, as it goes straight to the band (if not that I use bandcamp). I still don't see how random youtubers, with no affiliation to the band should be allowed to put ads on content that isn't theirs. I've got nothing against sharing music to help the band, but seems wrong putting ads over someone elses art.

The Deal is the first full length release by Aaron Turner’s new project, Sumac. Guitarist/vocalist Turner (Isis, Old Man Gloom, House of Low Culture, Mamiffer), bassist Brian Cook (Botch, These Arms Are Snakes, Russian Circles) and drummer Nick Yacyshyn (Baptists) present a stark and uncompromising sound, with loud, distorted, riff-heavy passages and pummeling, rhythmic drumming, interspersed with periods of dissonant ambience, as well as Turner’s unmistakable rasping growl.
