FLESHKILLER Awaken

The name Fleshkiller may not immediately ring a bell, but if i say that this is the new band of Extol guitarist and mastermind Ole Børud it should give you a fair idea of what this is all about. Alongside Børud Fleshkiller consists of Elisha Mullins (The Burial) on vocals and guitar, Ole Vistnes (Shining, Tristania) on bass and Andreas Skorpe Sjøen (Umpfel) on drums. 'Awaken' is a modern sounding, technical death metal album that I'm sure will appeal to old Extol fans as well as fans of the genre in general. The album consist of 10 death metal anthems of premium quality, with innovative, rhytmical aggressive riffs and arrangements on a very high technical level but still with melody as the main objective. There's a varity of vocal styles on the album, with Elisha as the main vocalist and Ole supplying melodic harmony vocals, spanning from growling, screaming to clean singing and it works just perfect together. The production quality is excellent as well. 'Awaken' is simply a masterpiece and sure as hell a hot candidate for my album of the year list. It's probably one of the best Norwegian death metal albums ever made and another monumnental addition to our country's proud extreme metal history. 'Awaken' will be unleashed to the waiting hordes on September 15th.
