Progressive metallers Believer are back with new music. New songs from Believer will be released throughout 2017, culminating in the release of a physical product to be announced later this year. Believer fans will enjoy (or not) digital releases every few months with new artwork from Eye Level Studio’s Michael Rosner to accompany each release. The first installment, titled “1 of 5,” contains two songs and was released via Trauma Team Productions yesterday (March 18). The songs were mixed by Kevin Gutierrez at Assembly Line Studios and mastered by Bill Wolf of Wolf Productions.
As Believer fans know, the band’s sound is constantly evolving as they explore new creative directions with each release. Kurt Bachman (Guitars/Vocals) explains, “At this point our goal was to write good songs, but to also make ourselves feel a bit musically uncomfortable. We have long admired the musicianship of Rush, Yes, Kansas, etc, but it was their ability to write great, memorable songs that has always inspired us. After 30 years, I would say that with these songs, we are combining the Believer sound with our very early musical roots and having a fun time doing it!”
