Official press release:

Facedown Records is excited to welcome Fleshkiller to the family.

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, entitled 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.

The first single drops with pre-orders on June 30, while Awaken will surface in September. Indie Recordings will release the album outside of North America, while it will be available in the U.S. and Canada via Facedown Records.

From Ole 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
