believer-thrashIt’s been a while since we heard something from Pennsylvania-based technical thrash metal veterans Believer. Below you can watch a short video by vocalist Kurt Bachmann.

In Feb. 2012, Kurt Bachman stated about the writing process for the new Believer album: “The writing for the basic tune parts [is] almost complete. We’re shooting, again, [to have] 12 tunes [on the CD], maybe 13. We’ll see.” He continues “I feel that this will be the most sensual of all Believer releases. Once again we are striving to create something unique while not throwing away any riff just because it might not fit the typical Believer mold. This is part of the process we love and hate. We love being creative, yet we place intense pressure on ourselves to write something we’ll enjoy hearing and playing at least 2060 times. Of course, we are sticking to our two main goals: 1) Have fun and 2) Don’t die in the process.” Continue reading »

believer-thrashIt’s been a while since we heard something from Pennsylvania-based technical thrash metal veterans Believer. Below you can read a message from Keyboardist/Bass Player Jeff King:

The last couple years have been difficult for Believer. Since early 2013 we’ve probably met together as a band in the hospital as much as anywhere else.I suffered from a very aggressive case of ulcerative colitis, an autoimmune disease that attacks the the large intestines. It didn’t respond well to drug therapies, including the heavy-duty chemo-type drugs.At its worst I was having diarrhea over 30 times a day with accidents everywhere — at home, at my studio, in the car. I was severely fatigued, malnourished and dehydrated, suffered from a lot of pain, and required frequent hospitalization.In the end I had to have two major surgeries to remove my entire lower GI tract. Ulcerative colitis and the closely related Crohn’s Disease are severely debilitating illnesses and I feel fortunate to be alive. Continue reading »

Legendary technical metal act, Believer, are currently in the process of writing their sixth album. It’s their third for Metal Blade Records and the follow up to 2011’sTranshuman, which was heavily spun on SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal and received stellar reviews in print and online. Believer also performed at last year’s New England Metal and Hardcore fest. Since then, the band has been writing new material.

Founding member Kurt Bachman elaborates; “As we begin the writing process, I feel that this will be the most sensual of all Believer releases. Once again we are striving to create something unique, while not throwing away any riff just because it might not fit the typical Believer mold. This is part of the process we love and hate.
