The third instalment titled 3 of 5 of Believers 5 piece long EP was out on 31st October 2017, released by Trauma Team production and mixed by Kevin Gutierrez at Assembly Line Studios and mastered by Bill Wolf of Wolf Productions. They gained much worldwide recognition for their boundary-breaking, artistic form of progressive metal music. Their early albums had collaborations between metal and orchestral musicians which sealed the band’s legacy. Believer’s focus on creativity and innovation earned praise from fans and musicians worldwide.

Believer, which is an American technical thrash metal band from the late 1980s and early 1990s, is known for playing a hybrid of thrash and progressive metal, using innovative symphonic elements in thrash metal. Their lyrics deal with topics of philosophy, theology and social issues. The two primary members of the band are vocalist/guitarist Kurt Bachman and drummer Joey Daub, who were joined by several others after their 1989 debut album, Extraction from Mortality.

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 third installment, titled “3 of 5,” contains two songs ‘Imagine Dragons’ and ‘King Of Oz’ and is released via Trauma Team Productions today. The songs were mixed by Kevin Gutierrez at Assembly Line Studios and mastered by Bill Wolf of Wolf Productions.

“We had to deliver something a bit odd since it’s an odd number release,” stated Jeff King. “And we just couldn’t sit on our hands when Imagine Dragons released their song ‘Believer’,” added Kurt Bachman.

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!” Continue reading »

After a hiatus (Believer disbanded in 1994, when Daub announced that he and Bachman would reform the band), Believer came back in action in March 2005, and is recently making headlines with its first instalment of one of five EP which was released this March 2017. This is the second EP of the five to come. They gained much worldwide recognition for their boundary-breaking, artistic form of progressive metal music. Their early albums had collaborations between metal and orchestral musicians which sealed the band’s legacy. Believer’s focus on creativity and innovation earned praise from fans and musicians worldwide.

The two primary members of the band are vocalist/guitarist Kurt Bachman and drummer Joey Daub, who were joined by several others after their 1989 debut album, Extraction from Mortality.

In a press release, Believer explain that their aim with the 2017 releases was to combine the Believer sound with some of the bands that influenced them in the early days, with the likes of Kansas, Tool and Rush. The lyrics are intelligent, as always, from a band whose members have taken a very intentional approach to life and worldview formation. Continue reading »
