Norwegian death metallers Extol have checked in with the following update:
“Hi everyone! It´s been awfully quiet from the Extol camp lately. We know many of you are eager to know what´s going on and when to expect something new from Extol. Due to other projects and obligations it´s gonna take a good while before we can start working on new material. That said, we are very happy to announce that there are two very exciting Extol related projects in the works! Ole Børud continues his journey exploring the progressive sides of death metal with his brand new project Fleshkiller. Reuniting with his former band mate Peter Dalbakk from their early 90´s melodic death metal act Schaliach, this project will definitely be one to check out! Head over to facebook.com/fleshkillerofficial and follow the action from there!”
“The other project will be revealed very soon so stay tuned… We´d like to take the opportunity to thank each and everyone of you for your support over that last years! We truly appreciate it!”
Extol‘s long-awaited fifth album has been released on 21st of June 2013 in Norway, Germany and Austria and on 24th of June in Europe via Indie Recordings and on June 25 in North America via Facedown Records.
More than two years after the start of the dvd crowdfunding campaign, the long awaited Extol: of Light and Shade documentary will be finally released next month.
The film is directed by Åsmund Janøy and produced by Peter Espevoll and Åsmund Janøy. Edited by the fabolous Torkel Gjørv (‘Tears of Gaza’ and ‘When Bubbes Burst’) with soundmix from Lyder Janøy and featuring amazing music from Aslak Hartberg, Jon Henning Orten and Extol.
In October of 2012, we had the opportunity to do an interview with Ole Børud, the mastermind behind reactivated Extol.
