Choir of the Damned is a Mission in the Shadowkeep expansion, and the first step of the Symphony of Death Quest. The Guardian travels to the Summoning Pits to seek Toland, the Shattered's guidance in turning the Hive's Deathsong against its makers.[1]

The player spawns in the Circle of Bones, near the entrance to the Summoning Pits

  • Eris Morn: "Luna — forever haunted by the Hive's vile corruption. But we will turn their wicked sins against them. Find Toland, Guardian… Let his shattered mind guide you."

The player reaches the entrance to the Summoning Pits.

  • Toland: "The siren call of the Deathsingers pervades the minds of those with little strength. Step beyond the threshold and display your power."

The player enters the Summoning Pits and slays the Hive holding a ritual within. The player recieves the Silent Skull

  • Toland: "The skull of the devoted belongs to you now. There is great power in it… should you find a path to wield it."


In addition to these enemies, the foes encountered in Patrol may appear within the mission, including the Overload Minotaur that occasionally appears in the Summoning Pits.
