EXTOL Finish Filming 'Pearl' Video

Norwegian progressive thrash/death metallers EXTOL have finished filming a video for the song "Pearl" off their forthcoming fourth full-length album, "Blueprint" (short for "The Blueprint Dives").

Commented the band: It took us two days to get things right, and it was just like the '24' series! The guys in Helmet Productions didn't sleep for like 48 hours, only working and working to get what they wanted! The locations were awesome, really dark and spooky... But, it's probably the coldest experiences we've ever had!! It was snowing, and we were only wearing t-shirts... We are used to snow here in Norway, but this was like the North Pole! We had an actress who stayed in ice-cold water for like three hours straight! We hope she didn't get sick!! The video is supposed to be finished in the beginning of January."

"Blueprint" is scheduled for release on February 21, 2005 via Century Media Records. A U.S. release date has yet to be confirmed. A sample cut from the CD, "Gloriana", can currently be found on the Century Media compilation CD "Metal For the Masses Vol. 3", available now at Hot Topic stores throughout the U.S.

EXTOL recently announced the addition of guitarists Tor Glidje and Ole Halvard Sveen (both ex-LENGSEL and ex-GANGLION) to the group's ranks.
