Fleshkiller - Awaken (Ft. members of Extol and The Burial)

Post by Hardcore Christian on Wed Jun 21, 2017 10:46 pm

Fleshkiller just signed to Facedown Records of all places



Definetly excited to hear this!

Excerpt from Facedown Press Release:

We are so excited to announce that Fleshkiller will be joining the Facedown family for the North American release of their debut album “Awaken” which mixes old school death metal with rich harmonic prog fusion.
Facedown fans will recognize Fleshkiller guitarists/vocalists Ole Børud and Elisha Mullins from Extol and The Burial respectively. “Awaken” was mixed by Facedown’s own Jack C Daniels (War of Ages, Hope for the Dying), so there are plenty of reasons to get hyped about this new release!
First single drops with pre-orders on June 30. “Awaken” will be released in September on Facedown in North American and Indie Recordings for the rest of the world.

Ole Børud was the best thing that ever happened to Extol, and his Schaliach album was awesome.  I'm looking forward to this.  Cool artwork.

Anyone know whether the band is considered a "Christian band" or not?

The lyrics to me are fairly obviously Christian

They are on a Christian label

And have members from other prominent Christian bands

I would say yes

Lyrical video for Parallel Kingdom seems nice and blunt. 

Very excited for this record!

I couldnt really get into the last Extol album because of the clean singing being such a drastic change from the brutal vocals

Sounds like they've got a real mix of clean/prog, thrash, and core vocals -- none of which are generic.  I like the variety.  Not a huge fan of the clean/prog singing, though, so I hope for more thrash and core sounding vox.

The music is pretty good. The core vocals make me sad  No  I will probably still buy it.

^This song sounded much more -core to me.  My excitement for this album is waning...  I probably should've waited to preorder until I heard more.  We'll see though.

Awesome song! Liked it a lot more than the first one.

No traces of the prog vocals, which is what I didnt like, so it made it better

Good driving death metal so far

This album was released today. Who else has heard the whole thing? After several listens, I gotta say that this is blowing me away. Take the heaviest parts of Extol's last album and you've got Fleshkiller. I was not expecting much, but this is awesome.

And for those who are curious, the lyrics are explicitly Christian on many of these songs. "True Image" basically has worship lyrics.

From my first listen, I'm definitely liking it quite a bit.  I'm really looking forward to digging into it more with repeated listens.

And yeah, from the bits of the lyrics I picked up, it's quite explicitly Christian which is great.

Just finished the third listen

Gotta say, this is one beautiful album!

The way every song feels so cohesive is cool, the only negative to that is there aren't as many unique standout tracks
As a whole this album is awesome, but other than the 3 singles that I already know, there arent any songs I'm latching onto yet

Overall I am gravitating more towards the second half of the album

And these honestly are some of the most blatant Christian lyrics that I have heard in a long time

These rank up with Mortification and Antestor when it comes to honest straight from the Bible lyrics

I'm definitely gonna buy this record. I just like the songs that I've heard so far. Ole is a true genious and talented guy. At least I can't name another artist who makes both the funky stuff and this kind of death metal. But I think he has managed to do it pretty well.

Agreed, though I'd add Adorned Graves to that list too!

This album is friggin' killer!!! You can really pick out Ole Boruds sound on this album. A lot of it reminds me of Extol.
