EXTOL Members Launch New Band MANTRIC

Norwegian progressive thrash/death metallers EXTOL have issued the following update:

"As you know, EXTOL has taken a break from activities for some time. Right now it's impossible to determine when or even if the band will appear again. We want to thank you for being supportive, and want you to know that there's no hard feelings involved!! However some of the guys have a new band [called MANTRIC] going. Check it out at this location. Please do not make comparisons with EXTOL."

As previously reported, EXTOL will release a compilation CD in 2008 including new and old tunes, plus some rare stuff. More information will be made available soon.

EXTOL's video for the track "Pearl" can be viewed below. The clip was directed by Øystein Moe and Alexander Soma of Helmet Productions and was filmed in Norway.

"Pearl" comes off the band's fourth full-length album, "Blueprint" (short for "The Blueprint Dives"), which was released in 2005 via Century Media Records.
