Disciple: Scars Remain
0

Sound — 10
11 tracks. 38 minutes of screaming. This was the first disciple album I heard, and I love it. It's hard-core enough to get me pumped up, but soft enough that I don't have to turn down my ipod when I'm listening to it. Young proves that he has the voice to scream 'Fight for Love' or croon 'The wait is over'. The styles sound like kind of a miz of Pillar and Common Children, or maybe what would happen if Demon Hunter did a track with As I Lay Dying.

Lyrics — 9
The Lyrics in this CD are Christian, definitely. 'Game on' "I'm not afraid of loving my enemies... blessing those who curse me... but when you come against my family, my country, I can't stand by." Good solid Christian lyrics and ideas. Also in Fight for Love "Who will stand, to rise against injustice, take up the cause of the unwanted ones?" From the title track, Scars remain, someone is talking who has been tricked, deceived by something of this world, and now they are paying the price. The scars remain.

Overall Impression — 10
I like this album, it compares nicely to the other albums I listen to. Demon Hunter's Storm the Gates of Hell, AILD's, the Sound of Truth. I think that definitely the best songs from this album are Fight for Love and Game on, by a mile, 4 minutes each of head-banging, hard-core screaming. If I lost it, I would definitely buy it again.

    Really enjoyed the album. With Isreal Beachy(formerly of Staple) on bass now and a new guitarist, their live show is even MORE intense now. The mosh pit went crazy for these guys!

    they're workin on another album too. This album kicked my butt in a good way since I first heard it. I was hoping that it would be a little longer though

    This album was awesome, but I want to hear some of the older staple style.... more southern/screamo.... this was great for both, but I really like them as a screamo band.... and their new guitarist uses boogies instead of Splawn, so we're in for a bit of a sound change.

    dang its been a while since ive listened to this one... a very solid album. i should pop it in soon. its gonna be interesting to see how their new stuff will sound, considering how basically the entire lineup is different.
    Kevin Young
    The lineup is virtually the same. Brad Noah is still the guitar player for Disciple. He just doesn't play live with the band anymore. He is still the main music/songwriter for the band and will still be playing guitar on the albums. The only change is the bass player. And the only people that will notice the difference in that area are people with highly-tuned musician ears. Thanks for all the love on this website. God bless you guys. We start working on the new album June 2, 2008. The working title is "Southern Hospitality." Can't wait for you guys to hear it. Kevin Young Vocalist for Disciple
