Believer releases new EP, to continue releasing music throughout 2017

By in News | 6 Comments

The progressive thrash metal band, Believer has began to release their long-awaited new music. Though not all at once. It seems that they are releasing them two songs at a time, or at least this EP only had two tracks. This EP, just called 1 of 5, has two tracks: “Home” and “888”. The band formed in 1986 as Deceiver, but changed their name to Believer the next year. They released three albums though the label R.E.X. Music and then went their separate ways in 1993. In 2005, the boys got back together, and released two albums and have been mentioning new music for years now. The band has finally released their first of five EPs, that will probably be released as an album eventually. Check this EP out and go support these guys!

I didn’t care about Transhuman at all. It wasn’t that it was bad it just floated on by like it wasn’t there. These tracks sound good for what they are but I don’t think I’ll bother. It doesn’t help that it seems there is zero spiritual value in what they do anymore either.

Those first 3 albums, nearly untouchable in Christian Metal. Though Gabriel was pretty decent it gave me hope for better as they found themselves again. It seems they found themselves and they, understandably, aren’t anything like they were. Unfortunately I don’t think it’s anything for me anymore.

Have they made any statement on their faith? Just curious as to whether or not that’s something that they said or something inferred.

No statement. I actually asked the question a few years ago before Kurt did a Q & A on youtube and he talked about it, around it. You can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kMhMFA_sJA He addresses it around 6 minutes Frankly, it doesn’t really matter whether they are or aren’t Christians. Based on the lyrics, that’s not the message anyway. Transhuman was about gene editing, something more in line with Kurt’s job working in molecular biology and cancer research. From an outside point of view, the lyrics were vague and hopeless. So, when the music isn’t really my thing anymore and… Read more »

I agree wit “Ian DeVaney”. Not realy feelin it or the way ther “releasin” it. Always thot the “release a few trax at a time until it makes an album” idea anoyin+ unecesary.

Wow! This is not what I expected at all. It’s very much in the melodic rock vein. It reminds me of when Extol released the Blueprint Dives.
