Technical thrash metallers Believer have finished recording their new album and are shooting for an early 2011 release through Metal Blade Records.
The CD was produced by Trauma Team Productions and will be mixed by Kevin Gutierrez (Raven, Project: Failing Flesh, Deceased) at Assembly Line Studios.
When asked about the direction of this latest endeavor guitarist/vocalist Kurt Bachman said: "We decided to bring back some of the orchestral feel of 'Dimensions' by utilizing more layered guitars, keys and melody with different vocal arrangements. There is still the 'Believer' sound, but the musical progression continues for us."
Keyboardist/programmer Jeff King added: "We revamped our writing and recording process so that everyone could work at their peak times. We also spent a lot of time finding the right combinations of gear to achieve the sounds we wanted.
"Each Believer album has had its own sound that distinguishes it from the preceding album, and this project is no different in that respect. You still have the core elements that make it recognizable as Believer, but the guitar tone is heavier, the songs are tighter and musically it seems more refined."
Probably the album I'm looking forward to hearing the most in 2011 so far.
Digging: Dark Tranquillity - Construct
i'm a belieber
awesome news, I really liked Gabriel so I'm looking forward to this.
aren't these guys christian or something?
Ah, awesome. Definitely looking forward to this.
And yeah, Genocide, they are.
Gabriel ruled, def looking forward to this
--aren't these guys christian or something?--
Yeah, they are and it was totally obvious on their older albums, but they never got preachy. Gabriel's lyrics didn't feel like they were 'christian' at all, though. I'm not saying they were the opposite or anything, they just didn't come off as religious.
Digging: Thundercat - Apocalypse
Scott Waters will be most pleased
This is definitely gonna be one of my top anticipated releases of 2011.
Gabriel really grew on me when I got past the vocals, so I'm definitely interested in this.
Digging: Hacride - Back To Where You've Never Been
I used to love these guys, pretty stoked for this. I haven't spun Gabriel in a while, perhaps I should
Digging: Into It. Over It. - Proper
