Norwegian death metal band Fleshkiller (feat. Extol mastermind Ole Børud) will play an exclusive show at the tenth edition of Brainstorm Festival. The cultural rock and metal festival will be held this year on 3 and 4 November as usual in the Gigant in Apeldoorn (NL).

Fleshkiller will release its debut album “Awaken” in September via Indie Recordings & Facedown Records (US & CAN). The first single ‘Parallel Kingdom’ was released on June 30. The lyric video can be watched below.
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.
