Extol_documntaryFollowing the upcoming DVD Norwegian death metallers Extol came out with the following update:

It´s been a while since our last update. We´ve had our hands extremely full with post production and we´re now very close to a finished film..!

Thanks to many of you, this project has become a journey we dared not hope for 3 years ago.
We have just signed the first (of hopefully many) broadcasting deals for television and we have started submitting the film to film festivals all over the globe. We have some very exciting months ahead and we´ll keep you posted on updates regarding TV and festivals.

A DVD release is scheduled for the end of 2014. We would love to have released the DVD at an earlier stage, however, due to TV and film festival regulations, late 2014 is the earliest we can do it.  Continue reading »

Extol_artworkSo Extol are here with another release, and I know its hitting the streets with much expectation and excitement. I remember being introduced in the early 2000’s by a friend to the sounds of Extol, and even back then going wow this is something I can really get into.

So lets get you in on a few facts about these guys to get a greater picture to those who might not be as familiar as some about the band. They rose out of the heavy metal scene during the 90’s, a time when heavy metal was peaking commercially. This came parallel to Norwegian underground black metal scene. A time when hard music was characterized by nu-metal and post grunge. Extol’s persistence to pursue a dream whereby they brought death metal back to the alternative music scene in my books, seems to have been a long road but with their latest release by all counts they have arrived. I will always regard “Burial” (1998) as one of my all time favorite Christian metal releases, period. It probably because it still holds a lot of nostalgia of that era of my life at that time. So in a way it was part a measuring stick for this release. Also I favor bands that challange the traditional structures of a genre, and I love it when a band can give a genre some education.

Extol_2013_aprilNorwegian metallers Extol have released a music video ‘A Gift Beyond Human Reach’. The song comes off their forthcoming selftitled album. The video can be seen below.

Their fifth album will be released 21st of June 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.

According to a press release, Extol‘s new CD “is a like a complex metallic alloy. The playfulness of the songs and the brutal bonding of genres are transformed into a fusion of atmospheric and harmonic prog rock, merged with the tempered thrash and death metal that Extol so uniquely master. This album leads us straight to the core of Extol.” Continue reading »
