If you know anything about Extol then you should be surprised to hear that they have released synergy with a return to their musical roots........thrash!
Proudly displaying influences like Believer (particluarliy in the second song Paradigms) they have managed to take thrash into a new dimension with a modern, sometimes melodic but still brutal edge.
Peter Espervoll's vocals have aslo changed to suit the thrashing, occasionally venturing into familiar growling territory.
The one thing that you must not do is compare this release to their previous ones in that although the musianship is just as good and the song writing is aslo wonderful, do not expect another Undecieved LP. it is a completely different listening experience, and a fantastic one at that.
having said that if you like modern thrash metal at its best, Synergy is what you want!
