Guitarist/vocalist Kurt Bachman of the reactivated late '80s/early '90s technical-thrash metal band BELIEVER has issued the following update:"Joey [Daub] has completed tracking drums [for BELIEVER's new album] except for one 'interesting' tune. He will be completing this next weekend. I have finished tracking the initial rhythm guitar tracks also. So far, we are very happy with how things are sounding. We hope to start tracking bass and more guitars over the weekend. We'll try to get some studio footage posted in the near future, so that you can witness some of the madness that's taking place. "I hesitate to predict a release date, but we are shooting for the May/June timeframe. If we can get it out quicker we will, but as you know, we don't like to rush things. It's been 14 or so years, so I'm sure a couple extra months won't cause any distress. We just want it to sound amazing for you. "As for how we will release the new material, this is still being discussed. Once we are in the mixing phase we will be finalizing the release plans and letting you know." BELIEVER's albums "Extraction from Mortality" (1989), "Sanity Obscure" (1990) and "Dimensions" (1993) were made available on November 5 via Poland's Metal Mind Productions in a new digipak edition on golden disc, digitally remastered using 24-bit technology and limited to 2,000 numbered copies.
