  • For what it’s worth, I think the new Believer CD is awesome. The riffs are heavy, at times fast, but always controlled. Ted Kirkpatrick, drummer and founder of Tourniquet, once called Kurt Bachman his favorite guitar player when it came to riffs. I agree with him.
    I think if you enjoy metal of any kind, you should buy this CD. The lyrics make you think. Bachman leaves the interpretation to the listener, so I find it difficult to understand the meaning of titles or songs, but oh well.
    I really enjoy almost every song. “Stoned” is a great song that makes me think of the early martyrs in the Christian faith. Of course, I’m sure that was not necessarily what Bachman intended. “Medwton” is another cool song that causes one to join the scream “This calculation is killing me!” toward the close. “A Moment in Prime” has a great riff throughout the song and the lyrics, “It must be a nightmare or vampire’s thirsting,” are interesting to say the least. “The Need for Conflict” is another great song that culminates with the lyrics: “I…bathe…in…your…hate!” “Focused Lethality” is a great thrash song that has an interesting “solo” from Living Sacrifice’s (and Soul Embraced’s lead guitarist) Rocky Gray. I can’t wait for the new Living Sacrifice CD. “Shut Out the Sun” has a very catchy chorus that I can’t help but sing whenever it comes on my CD player. “The Brave” has cool verses and intricate guitar moments. Having Howard Jones of Killswitch Engage (a HUGE Believer fan)do the lead vocals is a nice change. However, I really like Kurt Bachman’s vocal style. I know it’s not for everybody, and I kind of like it that way. The only song I don’t care for and skip most of the time is “Nonsense Medicated Decay”, as well as the outtakes after that song.
    Believer has signed on for two more CD’s so I really look forward to the next release from this great band.
