Reactivated Extol to release new album in June
Reactivated Norwegian metal band Extol will release its self-titled fifth album on June 25 (one day earlier internationally) via Indie Recordings.

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."

Comments Extol drummer David Husvik: "'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 Extolhistory, 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 Børud has returned, and along with Husvik and Peter Espevoll, the trio now constitutes the 2013 lineup of Extol.
