Established in 1990 DISBELIEF started releasing demo-tapes and getting in contact with Andy Siry, nowadays A&R-Manager of NUCLEAR BLAST, who founded his own label GRIND SYNDICATE MEDIA to release the first, self-titled DISBELIEF-album in 1997. After finishing their first European support-tour with SIX FEET UNDER and GOD DETHRONED the debut was followed by INFECTED in 1998!
Both CD ́s were recorded with ANDY CLASSEN who also produced WORST ENEMY (2001) and SPREADING THE RAGE (2003), now on MASSACRE RECORDS. In 2002 DISBELIEF had the chance to support BOLT THROWER on their shows in Germany and to promote the SHINE-album, which was recorded with HEINZ HESS at the ART OF JUNE-studio in Frankfurt! So far the band had great reviews in the German and European press as well, SPREADING THE RAGE reached ALBUM OF THE MONTH in ROCK HARD and LEGACY-magazine and the band established their unique sound by touring with bands like DEATH ANGEL, the NO MERCY FESTIVALS with HYPOCRISY, IMMORTAL, BENEDICTION, NILE, supporting CROWBAR, TOTENMOND, shows on WACKEN and DYNAMO, WITH FULL FORCE, SUMMER BREEZE and many more all over Europe!
In 2005 DISBELIEF released 66 SICK via NUCLEAR BLAST. TUE MADSEN produced this album which was the most successful so far! ALBUM OF THE MONTH in ROCK HARD France and METAL HAMMER Germany! The first video-clips for REWIND IT ALL and SICK were broadcasted on VIVA-TV and increased the bands popularity! Great tours with PRO-PAIN, EKTOMORF, supporting the legends of SLAYER and ANTHRAX - big events for the band!
The album NAVIGATOR (2007), now again on MASSACRE RECORDS and produced by MICHAEL MAINX is a milestone and underlines the individuality of the DISBELIEF – sound!! Support-shows for SEPULTURA, SOULFLY and a Co-headlining tour with GRAVEWORM happened to promote NAVIGATOR as much as possible!
After several line-up changes DISBELIEF recorded PROTECTED HELL (2009) again with MICHAEL MAINX, many shows all over Germany and Europe and lots of festivals happened to make this album very successful! The video for the song A PLACE TO HIDE was featured on the important ROCK HARD – DVD in Germany!!
To celebrate their 20th anniversary the band released the album HEAL! In 2010! The very first headliner tour in Germany took place before this split and the band appeared on big festivals such as SUMMER BREEZE 2010, and they continued further playing lots of concerts and big festival-shows in 2011 and 2012, for example ROCK HARD FESTIVAL 2011 and WITH FULL FORCE FESTIVAL 2011...!
DISBELIEF is still growing and heading for the future!
The songwriting for the new album is already in progress!! WATCH OUT!!
