After 8 years one of my favorite metal bands, Extol, has released a new album. I've been pointing people to the band's forthcoming documentary as well as this album album for some time now. In case you missed all that, Extol is a Norwegian (Christian) progressive death metal band. Ok, that label isn't accurate when listening to all their albums. They have been wildly diverse. But they are at their best when going extreme, and their new self-titled album incorporates the best attributers from what they have been doing along the way. "Extol" now available and it is thrilling--and getting great reviews. I'm not a real album-review guy, so I'll simply point you to the secular metal blog No Clean Singing where you can read their extremely positive review.
Get it. Support the band. Get your metal on.
