Disciple
Posted July 29, 2008
By thirdsaint,


I got hooked on their music after seeing a drama skit to the song 'Rise Up', and I haven't looked back. That song is the perfect anthem for this generation and the fact it was played at a church youth event was just amazing. This is one of Disciple's softest albums vocally but the music is still as heavy as it gets. Screaming does not always equal heavy just like heavy music doesn't mean shallow lyrics. Disciple are one of the best at creating powerful hard rock songs combined with amazing, faith-filled lyrics. There are great vocal hooks and harmonies to go along with very impressive bass and guitar work. And despite being a lengthy 14 tracks long, the album never feels like it's overstaying it's welcome. Every track seems to end at the right time and they do a great job mixing up the pace to keep you guessing with strong ballads like 'Only You' and 'Beautiful'.

I suppose they don't really push any boundries but then again, they don't need to. This isn't an experimental album but rather one they utilize all their strengths and, effectively, hit on all cylinders. This is the perfect album to start with if you are new to Disciple and want to see what they offer since it's more accessible than other albums. It's really a shame that they aren't more well-known being a veteran band and all. If you have a craving for some heavy Christian rock goodness this is where it's at.

Gems of this album are: 'Rise Up', 'Backstabber', 'Worth It All', 'Go Ahead'

Overall - 9.4/10
