“EXTOL: OF LIGHT AND SHADE” DOCUMENTARY TO BE BROADCASTED ON NOR TV!

“EXTOL: OF LIGHT AND SHADE” DOCUMENTARY TO BE BROADCASTED ON NOR TV!




The well-established Christian death metal band Extol can look back on a great career including Nor Grammy nomination, several US tours, top CD-sales and national recognition in press and music scene. In April they release the documentary "Extol: Of Light And Shade"; the story of a band split in paradox between two worlds, Christianity and death metal. The film has been shown at various film festivals the past summer, and it will now be broadcasted on Norwegian TV channel NRK2, Dec 27!

Being strong believers in a music scene dominated by atheists and anti-religious practitioners creates some challenges. Extol, with its Christian content and death metal expression, has hence experienced its share of difficult situations and obstruction. Christians react with disgust on the aesthetics and effects the band uses, while the secular fraction of the music scene shows great dissatisfaction regarding the lyrical themes. On one side, local churches organized bonfire sessions of Extol products and held prayer meetings against the band, whilst on the other side they’ve experienced bomb threats from self-appointed Satanists before a gig, getting spat at and scorned.

After 6 releases with success, 2007 was the start of a five year long break for Extol due to the vocalists strong tinnitus and anxiety. The documentary gives an insight on tinnitus and anxiety where the singer speaks openly about some of the challenges he experienced in 2007 and the years that followed. Questions about faith and freedom of speech set in a musical perspective are also important topics. The film does also illustrate the band's position in the Norwegian music scene and their international position. Eyvind Skeie, Hank von Helvete, now deceased Pater Arnfinn Haram and the charismatic American rock pastor Bob Beeman are some of the characters we meet in "Extol: Of Light And Shade."

Dubai Extreme Metallers Voice of the Soul Announce Debut Album Release

Dubai Extreme Metallers Voice of the Soul Announce Debut Album Release




Dubai extreme metallers Voice of the Soul have today announced the release of their debut album which will be entitled 'Catacombs'. The album will be released via UK label Hell's Hammer & India's Transcending Obscurity on 27th March 2015.

First formed in Kuwait on the opposite side of the Persian Gulf in late 2007 17 year-old Kareem Chehayeb and 16 year-old Monish Shringi released their first EP, ‘Winds of Apprehension’ in July 2009 with second EP, ‘Eyes of Deceit’ seeking the light of day the following summer. After playing several shows in Dubai since January 2011, the band opted to relocate to the most popular city and emirate in the UAE before releasing their third EP, ‘Into Oblivion’, live on SOS Heavy Metal Radio in Portugal in August 2011. ‘Into Oblivion’ was undoubtedly the bands most successful record with songs receiving regular airplay across the globe.

During April 2014, the band made home at Haven Studio with producer Hadi Sarieddine in Dubai and recorded their debut full-length album ‘Catacombs’.

Kareem Chehayeb comments: "While the band started off as a straight up melodic death metal band, 'Catacombs' took on a different shift. The thrash has virtually disappeared from our sound on this album and riffs have some added 'colour' now which was inspired by bands like Opeth, Gojira, Daylight Dies, and various jazz bands that really inspired me to start writing metal again. 'Catacombs' also introduces occasional clean vocals, as well as more doom metal on some tracks."



The artwork (as seen above) was designed by Syrian Dubai-based artist Hamood Hallak of MHD Graphics, and was inspired by the concept of one of the tracks from the album called 'Pendulum'.

Kareem elaborates: "While it appears evident that there is a priest/figure leading sheep, the cliff that they are about to walk off is within the temple itself. We don’t specify whether it’s religious or not, because religion isn’t the sole focus. It’s political, it’s social."

‘Catacombs’ Track Listing

1) Desolation 2) Perpetual De... 3) Pendulum 4) Quarantine 5) Cold Rupture 6) The Mist 7) Perdition 8) Defiled 9) Images Subside
