BLABBERMOUTH.NET can reveal that reactivated late '80s/early '90s technical-thrash metallers BELIEVER have inked a deal with Metal Blade Records for the release of their new studio album, due in early 2009. One song from the CD received its world premier earlier tonight (Monday, November 17) on "Radio Bam", skateboarder and TV personality Bam Margera's weekly radio show on Sirius Satellite Radio 28 / XM Radio 52. The program will be rebroadcast at midnight EST on Monday, Tuesday and Saturday.

Regarding what fans can expect to hear from BELIEVER's first studio album in 15 years, guitarist/vocalist Kurt Bachman previously said, "Will it sound like 'Extraction from Mortality' [1989], 'Sanity Obscure' [1990], 'Dimensions' [1993]? Well, we think you'll hear a splash of each, but we didn't set out to just rehash the old. That would be boring and offer nothing new for you to hear. With that said (and I will remind you again once the release date draws closer), if you don't expect a total rewrite of the past then we think you'll be pleasantly surprised."

The new BELIEVER CD will include guest appearances by Joe Rico (SACRIFICE), CKY/WORLD UNDER BLOOD guitarist/vocalist Deron Miller and Rocky Gray (EVANESCENCE, SOUL EMBRACED, LIVING SACRIFICE), among other musicians.

BELIEVER's albums "Extraction from Mortality" (1989), "Sanity Obscure" (1990) and "Dimensions" (1993) were made available in November 2007 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.
