As previously announced, Metal Mind Productions will release the first DVD of the outstanding art-rock act Believe.
The band, formed by the guitarist Mirek Gil (the former leader and composer of Polish prog-rock legend Collage), recently released their second studio album â€œYesterday Is A Friendâ€ (May 2008) which is receiving fantastic reviews in worldwide media. For example, the influential progressive website Progarchives.com wrote: â€œBelieve have succeed in blending together strong melodies, diverse arrangements, and top-tier musicianship resulting in a supremely atmospheric and highly enjoyable album. As with the work of other top class neo prog and symphonic prog bands, the album only truly reveals itself after a number of listens. That said though, the initial impact of Yesterday is a friend is still one of unfettered delight. Strongly recommended.â€
Believeâ€™s first DVD release entitled â€œHope To See Another Day Liveâ€ features lush soundscapes of uncannily dreamy hues, shades and undertones spiced up with distinctively rock energy! Beautiful compositions crowned with Mirek Gilâ€™s sublime guitar solos and the virtuosity of Japanese violinist Satomi. The setlist for the show recorded in November 2007 (WyspaÅ„ski Theater in Katowice, Poland) includes songs from the bandâ€™s debut album â€œHope to See Another Dayâ€ plus a song from â€œYesterday Is a Friendâ€ as also a song from Mr. Gilâ€™s (Mirek Gilâ€™s former band) repertoire. DVD also includes an interview with Mirek Gil and Believeâ€™s vocalist Tomek RÃ³Å¼ycki, photo gallery, 2 bonus audio tracks (taken from the â€œYesterday is a Friendâ€ album), Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround sound and more! Also available in a limited swing case edition including an audio CD with the songs recorded at the concert!
You can see a preview of the DVD â€“ track â€œMemoriesâ€ â€“ on the official MMPâ€™s site on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=MetalMindPoland.
â€œHope To See Another Day Liveâ€ DVD will be also available in a limited swing case edition including a CD with songs recorded during the concert at the theater. The premiere of both formats is scheduled for 21st July 2008 in Europe and 2nd September 2008 in USA (via MVD).
