Extol_2013_aprilNorwegian death metallers Extol reported the following:

‘It is now 20 years since Extol played the very first concert – in Sandvika, Norway May 17th 1994 to be precise. We want to celebrate this anniversary with some very few exclusive live shows later on this year!

The last concert Extol did was in Allingsås, Sweden November 26th 2006, so it´s been a while.. We are really looking forward to getting on a stage again, playing both new and old songs, and off course meeting our fans and friends! Waiting more than 7 years is just way too long..! More info coming soon.’

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.
