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.

Of course, we are sticking to our two main goals: 1) Have fun and 2) Don’t die in the process.” Continue reading »
