“Extol - a documentary”, is a semibiographical documentary and portrait of the norwegian christian death metal band Extol. They started their journey back in 1993 and established themself as a highly acclaimed death metal act. In 2007, after 6 studio-releases, Norwegian Grammy award nomination, world wide touring with bands such as Mastodon and Opeth, and recognition with both press and colleagues, the band went off the radar without any further explanation.
More than 5 years later, Extol gets back to it's original form, producing new material - to a global audience with high expectations. But life looks truly different for the original line-up. The vocalist Peter Espevoll is married and lives in a small town called Svelvik with his wife and two sons. Ole Børud is also married, has several solo projects and is a popular musician for hire. David Husvik is living in the capitol of Norway and is a sought after drummer for several other bands, devoting most of his time on his true passions in life; music and drums. The challenges are lining up for the group that is determined to make "the best death metal album in ages!"
