    Extol came into existence in the early 90's during a period of time when heavy metal was commercially dead. Parallel to the emerging Norwegian underground black metal scene, and in a time when hard music was characterized by nu metal and post grunge, Extol insisted to pursue the dream of bringing death metal back to the alternative musical landscape. Extol knew the genre was in desperate need for change. The oppressive correctness, a lack of melodic freedom and a feeling of stagnation in the rhythmic patterns in metal, provoked Extol's first full length album, Burial (1998).

    With this album the band challenged the genre's traditional structures and it bears the stamp of irreverent approach to tonality, harmonies and atmosphere, more common for bands from the 70's. This was the starting point for Extol's creativity and laid the foundation for their coming albums, Undeceived (2000), Synergy (2003) and the Norwegian Grammy-nominated The Blueprint Dives (2005), supported by extensive worldwide touring with bands such as Mastodon and Opeth.

    Extol's 2013 self-titled album 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.
