Norwegian progressive death metallers Fleshkiller has released a second single and lyric video. The song is called ‘Salt of the Earth’. The track appears on their debut album “Awaken” which will be released on September 15 via Indie Recordings & Facedown Records (US & CAN). The lyric video can be seen below.
“‘Salt Of The Earth’ is lyrically filled with bold statements from probably the most influential person in history, old quotes which is still able to stir controversy.
Musically it follows up with the same boldness through a plow of heavy hitting rythms that once again will make you bang your head!” – Ole Børud, Fleshkiller
The band has recently been added to the line-up of Blast of Eternity, which will take place in November. Not like previous years in Neckarsulm but this year in Stuttgart (Germany). Other performing bands will be: Living Sacrifice (Deathcore/USA), The Buried (Death ’n‘ Roll/Germany), The Prophecy 23 (Thrash Metal from Germany) … more bands will be announced soon.
Fleshkiller is founded by Ole Børud, Fleshkiller saw the light of day as a result of Extol’s return to hiatus after their last album in 2013. The upcoming debut album entitled “Awaken” was recorded and mixed between late 2015 and early 2017 at multiple locations around the world. Also written by Ole Børud, the style of music mixes old school death metal aesthetics with rich harmonic prog fusion elements. Compared to his previous efforts in the genre these new compositions spark a new level of intensity!
Ole Børud says “We’re so happy to be part of the Indie Recordings family, it really feels like a great match for Fleshkiller! The people at Indie appear to be genuinely into music which makes for a great dialogue and we look forward to future achievements in collaboration with them! Can’t wait to share the upcoming album with all of you!”.
“With their jawdropping mix of pure metal brutality and mesmerizing hooks, Fleshkiller make an astonishing entrance to the stage of metal. Their debut record stand short of none, and is a testament to the fantastic musicianship and songwriting capabilities embodied by the band. It`s a great honor to welcome them to the Indie Recordings family!” – Erlend Gjerde, Managing Director at Indie Recordings.
