“Souls Extolled are looking to become heroes to a generation where genres make little difference... This is classic rock, interjected with punk, and grunge, all distinct, yet all working to create the unique vision of Souls Extolled.” - Eduard Banulescu
Souls Extolled is a blast of energetic eclectic rock from Austin, Texas! Fusing generations of influences from indie rock to grunge and ska punk, the bands’ diverse blend is provocative yet familiar. Anchored on the spirited basslines of JP Ortiz, with a foundation of lively and dynamic drumlines from Joe Valadez, Zach Black’s dystopian guitar tone and theatrical vocals find their context. Still at the beginning of their journey, the maturing project boasts numerous accolades from significant national radio airplay to a growing list of notable press features and festival appearances. With their latest record ‘MMXXII’ coming out of the prestigious 512 Studios, their discography magnificently captures the dynamic nature of the explosive ensemble with pristine recording and mastering as well as creative yet tasteful production. You can hear Souls Extolled wherever music is streamed or sold! And with shows being scheduled all over the United States, catch the unforgettable experience of Souls Extolled in your city this year!
'MMXXII' Album Review by nathalie phan of on vinyl media ""The best way to describe the album is to think of it in a theatrical sense. It is a Shakespearean album filled with high drama, gore, politics, love..."
'Ride of my life' feature in melodic magazine's weekly roundup (02/21/2022) "The opening guitar of this one immediately brings to mind Kings of Leon, but soon after Souls Extolled morphs the song into its own unique character, which is especially accentuated by the dreamlike, yet emotional, vocals."
Zach Black interview with metal digest magazine "I think for all of us in one sense or another, it was moving to Austin and seeing so many other great musicians doing the thing. They really paved the way for us."
'Sweet Glow' feature on roadie metal (brazil) "Merging elements of Grunge and Alternative Rock from the 1990s, the song delivers great melodies and is now available for listening on the main music streaming platforms."
'sweet glow' review from direct actu (france) "Sometimes we let ourselves be seduced by a title, because its melody and its mood remind us of a film, a feeling of the past. That's kind of how Sweet Glow drew us to Souls Extolled."
'Sweet glow' review from alt77 alternative music blog "Souls Extolled are looking to become heroes to a generation where genres make little difference... This is classic rock, interjected with punk, and grunge, all distinct, yet all working to create the unique vision of Souls Extolled."
'The CRUCIBLE' REVIEW from ROCK ERA MAGAZINE "It's so tight that you cannot even think it's a single track by a modern act!"
Review and Interview with GigRadar (UK) "a blast of groovy hard rock that unashamedly draws on the greats of rock, grunge, ska and rap-rock..."
"Garden of Eden" review from Vinyl Chapters Music Blog "Featuring a hard rock but groovy sound, Souls Extolled is a band enjoying their music... A unique and interesting blend of genres."
"allegiant swine" press release from buffablog "This unique three-piece packs a wallop into their power-trio package, bringing to mind bands like Jane’s Addiction or Faith No More with tinges of ska punk and classic rock."
"Follow the Ghosts" Album Review from On Vinyl Media "Overall, the project, from top to bottom, is a made of fantastic and angry but sensational compositions. Weaved in are interesting and well thought out lyrics."
ROCK ERA MAG INTERVIEW WITH ZACH BLACK "the general idea was to draw a parallel between the concept of a crucible, a place where different elements combine to create something new, and the way that we interact with each other through music, partying, and drugs. Like essentially rock n' roll is our crucible."
Zach Black interview with 'pete's rock news and views' "‘Extolled’ means to praise and worship enthusiastically. When we rock out we’re worshipping ourselves, or more specifically our own free will. This is our solution to the problem –"
Souls Extolled Interview in Rockstar Magazine "We’re super thankful to have so many great opportunities to play, and we’re going to make sure we bring the fuckin’ house down for every one!"
"Garden of Eden" review from ParaPop - Indonesia (music blog) "Musically it feels like blending fun Pink Floyd songs like 'Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 2' and Sublime's ska side like 'Same in the End'. Jim Morrison-esc vocal pitch during the verse, but shifts to something more Kurt Cobain-like in the chorus. This is a truly quirky and fun song, and an ode to the gritty and pervasive rock of the previous decade."
