"Extraction from Mortality" is the first album by the Christian thrash metal band Believer.


In high school, the band leader Kurt Bachman met Scott Laird, who was studying his first year as a music instructor. When Believer was recording the title track for "Extraction from Mortality", the band asked Laird to compose an orchestral intro for the song.cite web |author= |title=Believer bio |publisher=Open Publishing |date=2000 |work=Crucifyd.com |url=http://www.crucifyd.com/believer/index.html |accessdate=2007-09-19 ] In 1989, Believer was signed to R.E.X. Records which published "Extraction from Mortality". The album was mostly distributed to Christian bookstores but quickly gained popularity for Believer. The album was noted for its technicality and aggression, and especially the song ”Shadow of Death” is one of the all-time favorites among Believer fans.cite web |author=Majalahti, Michael |title=The Best Kept Secrets in Rock |publisher=Open Publishing |date=2004-03-02 |work=Imperiumi |url=http://www.imperiumi.net/col_2.php?id=42 |accessdate=2007-09-19 ] "Unite" starts with an intro that contains industrial music elements and bizarre sound samples. The last song, "Stress" is a humorous, laid-back tune that advice not to worry about things man can not do anything about.

"Extraction from Mortality" gained notice among non-Christian metal fans, and Believer was signed to Roadrunner Records in 1990. However, R.E.X. Records would release Believer's later records to Christian market while Roadrunner's distribution was strictly aimed at secular audience.

A remixed version of "Vile Hypocrisy" was released on the compilation album titled "Argh!!!", and an unreleased demo song titled "The Chosen" appeared on the compilation album "East Coast Metal".

For years "Extraction from Mortality" was hard to find, and copies sold for high prices in internet auctions. A label called M8 re-issued the album in 2001, printing 2000 copies of it, containing the bonustrack that appeared on the aforementioned compilation albums. The print sold out soon after. However, in 2007, the Polish label Metal Mind Productions re-released the album in a digipak version with 2000 copies.
