Canada was the stomping grounds of this pioneering christian death/thrash metal band. Believer slaughtered critics in 1989 with their debut "Extractions from Morality" proving that these christians could belt out death metal just as good as the rest, if not better. A year latter saw the Release of the bands instant classic "Sanity Obsure", showing the band shift directions slightly. They began to concentrate more on songwriting and even had a profound influence of tecnical overtones and odd meter arangements. It would be three years before the band would release their follow up album, "Dimensions". In those three years, Believer would see the departure of Guitarist Dave Baddorf and bassist Wyatt Robertson, and the addtion of Jim Winters, narrowing the band down to a three piece. "Dimensions" is by far Belivers most creative album, and definatly considred by most metal fans to be a progressive metal masterpeice, combining their death/thrash guitar attack with odd meter compositions and even an orchastra. It wasn't to long after the release of "Dimensions" that the band decided to call it a day, and many fans saw it coming but were not prepared for it even when it was announced. Although not a direct quote, vocalist/guitarist Kurt Bachman had stated he was ready to end the band and felt they had accomplished many goals with the final album. Many metal fans feel there is still more that Believer could being doing if they still existed. Fans of classic death metal will be fond of the first album, as well as the latter, and Tech-metal fans should know that "Dimensions" is required listening!
After more than a decade, Believer reformed and started putting out new material.
