Throughout the album, there is stellar guitar work by Andrew Stanton and Josiah Prince, and impressive drumming prowess by Joey West. On the other hand, if you change too much, you might lose your most loyal fans and risk compromising the band's identity. It boasts a memorable chorus, a fantastic breakdown, and has that inexplicable quality that makes its five minute runtime feel much shorter than it actually is. It might satisfy fans for a while, but if you don't change, over time you'll start to appear out of touch and irrelevant to potential new fans. Has it Leaked is not a download site.
The biggest factors to this include Josiah's vocals, Aaron Sprinkle as producer, the mature perspective, and the inclusion of some well placed electronic elements. Long Live The Rebels contains traces of Disciple's previous records, perhaps most notably Scars Remain, but like most other Disciple albums, it does have its own identity as a record. His band Disciple, despite several lineup changes throughout the years, continues to release excellent hard rock music. Disciple does an amazing job of incorporating scripture throughout their lyrics without lacking any focus on the music, resulting in a rock album that pleases both the ears and the soul. This case study of sharing the Gospel gently challenges listeners about the eternal significance our words have for the people we care about while also reminding us that that saving power comes from God alone. Users who ignore this rule will be banned from the site.
There are moments that possess an epic aesthetic that pushes these songs above the norm, allowing them to dominate every second they are alive. . It's hard to argue that this album is the best Disciple, or Sprinkle-produced, album ever made, but what it is is an album with virtually no flaws and certainly no glaring flaws that sounds just like one would hope an album coming from this duo would sound like. They will once again be highly satisfied with the results of this Kickstarter campaign. Continuing the trend started by Attack, Kevin isn't the only one to lay down vocals for this album. The music is exactly what hard rock fans are looking for, and the message never disappoints. We want to be the rebels who will change the world.
Kevin's commanding vocals are as confident and intense as ever; seamlessly transitioning between singing and screaming, continuing to prove he is one of the most gripping vocalists in the industry. Although the album releases officially on October 14, kickstarter backers will be receiving the album digitally two weeks early. If it doesn't grab your attention right away, give it a few more spins--otherwise you might be missing out on one of the strongest rock albums to come out in 2016. This was especially true two years ago when they independently released Attack, displaying a rekindled vision for making spiritually bold rock music while paying nostalgic nods back to their pre-Fair Trade label years. On initial listens, Long Live The Rebels does not leave as strong of an immediate impression as Attack. These black holes in my hands exist to steal away every sin of the world.
You can watch a teaser video for the album below. Long Live the Rebels is described by lead singer Kevin Young as a portrait of how Christians are set apart from the rest of the world. It is strictly forbidden to share links to albums via file sharing sites Zippyshare, Torrent, Kingdom Leaks etc. I'd find it hard to believe if anyone who loves Disciple or Sprinkle doesn't find themselves a true fan of this album. Two years ago, the group achieved an equally successful campaign that lead to the acclaimed 2014 album Attack.
But that wait has paid off with Long Live The Rebels. It's not that they've dialed down the heaviness; in fact, as a whole, this is a bit heavier than Attack. Backers will also be treated to the first two songs as soon as the kickstarter campaign ends on Sept. Being an indie band is quite obviously where the group thrives. Long Live the Rebels continues the trend of really solid music coming from the Disciple camp. Is the music new or innovative? Long Live the Rebels starts off strong and never really slows down. For Disciple, Long Live The Rebels is a statement of perseverance and longevity, and in a more spiritual sense, a Christian's eternal life in union with Christ.
It was only three months ago that Disciple announced that they would be teaming up with veteran producer Aaron Sprinkle to independently release their 12th full-length studio album. In the song, Kevin tells a story of a close friend coming to Christ after a long time of waiting and praying for the spirit of God to work in his life. Disciple has unveiled the cover for Long Live the Rebels and announced that it will release on October 14. Kevin Young acknowledges our need to be close to the Lord. Is it super tight and enjoyable ear candy? Long Live the Rebels, the band's 13th studio release, may not shake up the established sound too much, but it finds the band as confident in their craft as ever.
It declares that, despite adversity faced both in spiritual warfare and in their music career, they have risen victorious because of strength they have in Jesus. Overall, Long Live The Rebels is a thoughtful rock album that is more rewarding with repeated listens. Weak moments rear up occasionally, of course, but blemishes have been few and far between. . .
