EXTOL – new album in progress

We are happy to announce that EXTOL now after 5 years of silence returns to the studio to record their fifth album.

“After the “The Blueprint Dives” in 2005 and the massive worldwide touring with bands such as MASTODON and OPETH, we dissapeared without any further explanation. Now, years later, we are back on track working on what is to be our fifth full-length. As expected from the musical legacy of Extol, no compromise is offered.”

Mastermind OLE BØRUD has returned, and together with DAVID HUSVIK and PETER ESPEVOLL, the trio now constitute the line-up of EXTOL 2012.

Stay tuned for more information…

Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
