Reactivated Norwegian metal band EXTOL release its self-titled fifth album via Indie Recordings.
The new CD "is 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."
EXTOL drummer David Husvik has said of the album "'Extol' is the album that was planned all the way, but never materialized, Partly due to changes in the lineup, but also because of the band's urge to always reach for something new, The album is the recap of 20 years of Extol history, both musically and lyrically."
With a long-awaited creative collaboration with Jens Bogren (OPETH, PARADISE LOST, ENSLAVED) and some truly magnificent artwork by Travis Smith (KATATONIA, OPETH, DEATH), EXTOL has managed to create a timeless masterpiece and the vision of the band seems clearer than ever.
Mastermind Ole B rud has returned, and along with Husvik and Peter Espevoll, the trio now constitutes the 2013 lineup of EXTOL.
