Scale the Summit is an American instrumental progressive metal band based out of Houston , Texas. It formed in and signed to Prosthetic Records.
Chris Letchford and Travis Levrier grew up in the same neighborhood, but never played music together until ,  after they reconnected a few years earlier in a record store discussing a common interest, Between the Buried and Me. Letchford was set to attend the Los Angeles Musicians Institute a year after the band's formation, and Levrier decided to attend as well.
The duo mainly hoped to meet new people to join their band, reasoning that their chances of doing so would be highest there,  and after only a few months they met Jordan Eberhardt and Pat Skeffington, who joined on bass guitar and drums respectively.
I think we all just crossed paths at the perfect time. Although the band played typical technical metal with a vocalist in Houston, Letchford and Levrier noted a change in their sound when they started writing again in Los Angeles. To make it easier to pursue a career in the band, Letchford and Levrier convinced Eberhardt and Skeffington, whom they had never met before attending school, to move to Houston with them instead of basing the band in Los Angeles.
Scale the Summit's first release was a demo  that they personally handed-out at shows in limited quantities,  and their first album, Monument , was self-funded  and self-released.

In , they toured North America in support of Between the Buried and Me , and recorded their third album, The Collective , which they released the following year. In April , Jordan Eberhardt left the band, citing his reluctance to continue touring full-time; he was replaced by Mark Michell.
In November , Letchford announced that the band had started writing material for their next album, The Migration , which was released on June 11 the following year. In March , Pat Skeffington left the band and was replaced by J. Bryant, who wrote and recorded the drums for the band's upcoming  fifth album,  titled V and due for a summer release.
On October 27, , it was announced that drummer J. Bryant and bassist Mark Michell had left the band, with drummer Charlie Engen announced as a replacement for Bryant. On December 20, , Killian Duarte was announced as the band's new bass player.
Scale the Summit members thoroughly rehearse songs to record albums quickly,  and seek to perform their songs live exactly as recorded.

The band refer to their style of music "adventure metal",     a term which Letchford states originated from how listeners on the Musician's Institute campus told him and Levrier that they felt the music was taking them on a journey as they listened.
Song titles are usually selected after the songs are recorded by listening to the finished recording and brainstorming. Due to rhythmical complexity "off-time chugs" , the use of extended range guitars, and the general "vibe", their music is often ascribed to be djent despite much of their material being "clean channel" which contradicts the early onomatopoeic etymology of the genre's name.
