Believer has just finished tracking their second release for Metal Blade Records. The recording will be mixed by Kevin Gutierrez at Assembly Line Studios and produced by Trauma Team Productions. The band is once again pursuing new musical territory.

“We decided to bring back some of the orchestral feel of Dimensions by utilizing more layered guitars, keys and melody with different vocal arrangements. There is still the ‘Believer’ sound, but the musical progression continues for us.” – Kurt Bachman

“We revamped our writing and recording process so that everyone could work at their peak times. We also spent a lot of time finding the right combinations of gear to achieve the sounds we wanted. Each Believer album has had its own sound that distinguishes it from the preceding album, and this project is no different in that respect. You still have the core elements that make it recognizable as Believer, but the guitar tone is heavier, the songs are tighter and musically it seems more refined.” – Jeff King

Believer’s Metal Blade debut, Gabriel, was released to rave reviews in 2009 and is available at these links: Amazon.com, iTunes.com

“Believer’s adventurous breaks with past doctrine still make this comeback soar.” Revolver Magazine

“it’s almost as if they picked up right where they left off with their 1993 opus complexus, Dimensions – equal amounts sonic combustion and intellectual exploration for all and sundry.” Decibel Magazine

Gabriel is immensely heavy, deceptively melodic, ambitiously daring, and brilliantly played” Terrorizer Magazine

“Thinking man’s thrash – far more welcomed than virtually any bunch of new-school wankers.” Outburn Magazine
