FLESHKILLER Feat. EXTOL Guitarist: Debut Album, 'Awake', Due In September

FLESHKILLER has inked a North American deal with Facedown Records.

Founded by Ole Børud, FLESHKILLER saw the light of day as a result of EXTOL's return to hiatus after their last album in 2013. The upcoming debut album, titled "Awaken", was recorded and mixed between late 2015 and early 2017 at multiple locations around the world. Also written by Ole Børud, the style of music mixes old-school death metal aesthetics with rich harmonic prog fusion elements. Compared to his previous efforts in the genre these new compositions spark a new level of intensity.

"Awaken" will be released in September, with the first single set to drop on June 30.

Indie Recordings will release the album outside of North America.

Says Børud: "Signing with Facedown for the North American continent was the only natural thing to do as we already feel very connected to them, given that both Elisha and myself have previously collaborated with the label. Also the man behind the mix, Jack C Daniels is closely connected to the label so we're basically hooking up with family! The label's attitude and vibe is great and we're excited to be working with them on this album."

FLESHKILLER is:

Ole Børud (EXTOL) - Guitar/Vocals
Elisha Mullins (THE BURIAL, A HILL TO DIE UPON) - Guitar/Vocals
Ole Vistnes (SHINING, TRISTANIA) - Bass
Andreas Skorpe Sjøen (UMPFEL) - Drums
