These rockers from Knoxville have gained a reputation since their first 1995 album 'What Was I Thinking' in delivering the goods, making the windows shatter while turbo-delivering the Gospel! Their last album ('Horseshoes And Hand Grenades') in 2010 suffered from a lack of a permanent drummer and some track issues. 'O God Save Us All' appears to have addressed these, for one thing they have a permanent drummer, Trent Reiff, and songwriting contributors include Ben Glover (Brandon Heath, Lee Brice) and Seth Mosley (Newsboys) who co-wrote tunes with Kevin Young (lead vocals) like "Outlaws", "Draw The Line" and the song destined to be great live, "Once And For All". Then there's Trent, who stepped up to the mark to co-write "O God, Save Us All" and the title track. Even the gentler tracks such as "Someday" and "Draw The Line" (already a top five hit) feature faith affirming lyrics and powerhouse playing. All in all, there are tracks here which will stick with you well after the CD finishes.

Multi Dove Award-winning rock band Disciple is back with another hard driving, melodic album packed with more fantastic radio hits to follow up Horseshoes & Handgrenades, the best selling album of their long career.
Lead singer Kevin Young is in top form showcasing his signature vocals soaring overtop a rocking rhythm section.
Disciple’s new album O God Save Us All can be summed up as a soundtrack to the life experiences of a believer from beginning to end. The songs deal with the struggles and emotions of a life without Christ and our desperate need for Him, while also talking about the freedom and family that we are part of as the body of Christ, and the hope of eternal life we have that is our greatest promise from God.
