Lead vocalist kurt bachman recently said, we're always watching our perspective on why we're doing what we're doing. as the group approaches montrous new heights with their cur- rent album sanity obscure, believer fans still sit around and boast of the day they first heard the progressive thrash qurtet's first project extraction from mortality, which was released in late 1989. always remembering where they came from, believer digs deep into the trenches of christian 'life after death' core metal that easily catupults them into the artistic league of slayer, destruction and kreator. you'll immediately notice a few bizarre twists to this version of vile hypocrisy...the three second backward vocal...and the comedic horseplay between pro- ducer doug mann and bachman as they try to find the right studio formula. note the bands ability to stop on a dime, mid- chorus, without losing one beat of the mental click-track. that's what progressive...classical...and thrash is all about. now turn it up and open your neighbor's window...before he does it for you.
obeying worthless idols the prophets prophesied manifesting omens delusions of their minds claiming total wisdom knowledge from above ordained not from the Father ignorance of love.
woe to you o'teachers instructors of the law you who play religion impelling men to fall legalistic actions neglecting man's distress outer shells of virtue inner wickedness.
you blind the eyes that seek to see deceive humanity denying God by deed yet claiming intimacy.
drawing lambs to slaughter victims of deceit unaware they follow minds becoming weak vile hypocrisy method of defense for rejection of Christ eternal consequence heed the written warnings of deceptive lies neglect deceitful guidance apostasy defy there is nothing concealed that won't be made known sifting inner motives judgement for what's shown.
