"Confession Of Inadequacy" is one of the best examples at the harder end of this infusion, drilling squalls of discordant fury into your brain at a fair old pace.
                                             BLABBERMOUTH.COM REVIEWS

 Extol never quite get to the speed they reached on Burial but there are definitely some Thrash influenced drum runs with technical Thrash riffs that sound vaguely familiar; perhaps being similar to something Anacrusis or Watchtower might have done. This is all kind of mixed with Melodic Death leads, which is something the band used to use a lot, and the aforementioned clean, calming sections. Vocalist Peter Espevoll has a really great clean voice that sounds like a mix between Mikael Akerfeldt and James Labrie.

The moment “Grace for Succession” begins with these absolutely stunning acrobatic guitars extricated directly from Deathrow’s “Deception Ignored” and Coroner’s “Mental Vortex”, the listener knows the band have reached “Sanity Obscure” (Believer), and later he/she will find out that they have also surpassed it, at least on a musical level. 

Stephanie Sollow of Progressive World
 gave the album a very positive review, writing: "Extol are very good at what they do, playing a very tight and intricately arranged form of progressive thrash metal, if you will. They transition easily between different meters, all while creating a heavy wall of sound though which a guitar lead or some dynamic cymbal work will poke through for its lead spot."
