Last month, September 18th. Norwegian Metallers Extol started a crowdfunding campaign. Today they came up with the following update, a new video update can be seen below:

‘Thank you so much for every contribution, big or small, and for every share and for spreading the word. The money for the crowdfunding will go straight into the production and it also will make the film more attractive for other investors to fund the rest of the production and post production etc. This is all because of your amazing job! The campaign will roll for another 12 days and every dollar that comes in over 20.000$ will off course also go directly into the making of this film. THANK YOU!’

Extol – a documentary is a semi biographical documentary and portrait of the Norwegian christian death metal band Extol. The band is also working on a new album.

In 2007, they announced they were splitting up to work on separate projects. The band is known for playing a variety of different styles of metal which include progressive death metal, melodic death metal and thrash metal. It is mainly described as a progressive / melodic death metal band, having gained popularity primarily through its earlier works in that genre.

Signed to Century Media Records, the band has released four studio albums and two EPs. The band is noted for its precise, technical musicianship. The fourth album, The Blueprint Dives, received Spellemannsprisen nomination for best metal album of 2005. Extol has toured the US and Europe several times with such bands as Mastodon, God Forbid and Opeth. Collectively, Extol has sold over 500,000 CDs worldwide.

Commented the band: “After the The Blueprint Dives [album] in 2005 and the massive worldwide touring with bands such as Mastodon and Opeth, we dissapeared without any further explanation. Now, 5 years later, we are back on track working on what is to be our fifth full-length. As expected from the musical legacy of Extol, no compromise is offered.”

Mastermind Ole Børud has returned, and along with David Husvik and Peter Espevoll, the trio now constitutes the 2012 lineup of Extol, we keep you posted.
