"This, Believer's last cd, is nothing short of amazing. Its more technical than Sanity Obscure and has some Avant Garde elements. The Trilogy Of Knowledge is a 20+ minute song in 3 parts with violens and operatic singing mixed with the Thrash(like Dies Irae on Sanity Obscure).Its definatley one of the highlights of the album.This re-issue includes 3 bonus tracks wich are the worst part of the cd.They're live tracks but the sound is just horrendous.Other than that this re-isuue is well worth the price(and don't take to long to buy it cause there are only 1000 of them made!)."
Dont Pass On This One

"I remember years ago I looked at this CD in a local used record store. I had never heard of Believer and had no idea what they sounded like so i didn't get the cd. But i never forgot about it seeing it and years later after reading some reviews and listening to some samples i decided that when i found it at the right price i would get it. A few weeks ago i found it at the right price and got it and i was not disappointed.
If you like metal that is technical in nature you will love this. Time changes abound as do guitar solos. Though i will never profess to know a lot about styles of metal this seems to me to be old school metal.
This is a thinking metal fans record. The lyrical references listed in the liner notes include Stephen Hawking,Einstein,Rudolf Theil and others as well as the NIV Study Bible.The lyrics are heady stuff for sure but that fits well with the music. This record is very open about God and mans attempts to place reason and logic before Him. Lyrically i give this record high marks. The lyrics fit perfectly with the music. Intelligently written music needs intelligently written lyrics.
I must admit i don't care for the female vocals in the last few tracks. They sound to operatic for my taste but the operatic vocals do fit in with the theme of "Trilogy Of Knowledge" which is a four track suite that ends the record. Still i would have preferred the record without the operatic vocals.
Stand out tracks include "Gone"."Dimentia","What Is But Cannot Be" and "No Apology". This is a great record that i highly recommend to any fan of metal music. I wish i had bought it at that record store years ago."
