Extol: Of Light and Shade (Documentary)

So, Extol, the Norwegian Christian Death Metal band, put out a documentary about two years ago.

I still haven't watched it, despite them being one of my longtime favourite bands.

I thought you could only get it on DVD or something, but recently realised you can stream it on Vimeo.

Extol Documentary

I've heard great things about it, even from secular places, and the Bad Christian guys really recommended it. The trailer got me a little pumped.

Anyone seen it?

I finally checked this out the night before last. I highly recommend it.

It is a well made documentary, but what's great about it is that, yeah, it is about a band. But, it is also about something more broadly, and that is the place of heavy music in Christianity, and how bands like Extol really paved the way for broader acceptance.

It's also about the peculiar place of their type of music in Norway, and the difficult things they went through.

It also answers a lot of the questions about why, exactly, Extol sorta disappeared off of the map. I was a big fan when I was younger, and I never understood why they faded away.

Anyway, check it out. Super good.

I should have mentioned this earlier, but I think it does cost like 5 dollars to rent it...

No problem. That's not too pricey.
