Transhumanism: The study of the ramifications, promises, and potential dangers of technologies that will enable us to overcome fundamental human limitations, and the related study of the ethical matters involved in developing and using such technologies. Few albums in the metal genre transcend greatness like Transhuman. Repackaged with an expanded 12-page booklet (with jewel case), digitally remastered (Rob Colwell / Bombworks Sound), and every CD comes with the exclusive foil-stamped trading card. All this is intended to delight and tantalize collector’s who take their music seriously – sound – packaging – extras. Check – check – check. Bombworks Records knows how to take care of fans and collectors.
Musically, Transhuman shows the band’s willingness to grow and mature while still nurturing the
fans who love the first three albums. In fact, the album from the band’s past that Transhuman reminds us of most is Dimensions. If not in exact style, it resonates firmly in metallic innovation. Few bands have the talent and ability to embrace such an aggressive, technical, and progressive vibe, while sounding so unique. Voivod, Watchtower, Extol, Sadus, and Tourniquet can claim such elite status in the metal world – but Believer defines such categorization and claims ultimate power with their sovereign 2011 masterpiece, Transhuman.
