Disciple's first album has been completely remastered by Rob Colwell (Bombworks Sound) and given the Girder treatment (as some once coined it) layout by Scott Waters (NoLifeTilMetal). It's a double vinyl 2xLP gatefold on green vinyl with lyrics. 

Disciple's first full length album What Was I Thinking, was release on their own independent label. in 1995. The album was produced by first-time producer Travis Wyrick, former guitar player of the band Sage. 

Just when you thought the days were gone where bands could blow you away musically and spiritually! Those were my initial thoughts when I first listened to the debut from Disciple in the mid ‘90’s. Rough and raw around the edges, these songs spanned the gap between the Alice in Chains type grunge rock of the early 90’s and the post-grunge groove rock that would dominate the latter part of the decade – and they still rock hard with relevance to this day. Now for the first time every you can get this on vinyl.

By God

The second album in this exciting release is By God, also presented as a double vinyl gatefold. This album is a fan favorite and now you can enjoy it on vinyl for the first time ever. Get ready to immerse yourself in the powerful tracks of By God like never before.

  • Remastered
  • Double 2xLP Vinyl Gatefold
  • Maroon Vinyl
  • Limited to just 300
  • 2024 Girder Records, GR1151LP
  • Originally Release in 2001 on CD
  • Limited Run Vinyl™ Series
  • Release Date: July 12, 2024
  • UPC:7651014159830

The bands third full-length studio album By God went on to win the Inspirational Life Award in 2001 and earned them two Number 1 Christian rock hits with the songs “By God” and “God of Elijah,” along with two Dove Award nominations. Available on Double Vinyl 2xLP Maroon with lyrics and photos and of course, completely remastered for Vinyl. By fusing the styles and sounds of their first 3 releases, Disciple succeeding in surpassing everything they had accomplished up to this point. The musicality became a much more important element of the Disciple sound - the compositions in general more complex, the drumming more to the forefront and the huge riffs, and huge production sound even more massive. The intensity of the lyrical praises and convictions were no less “in your face” but they now enjoyed a more musically grounded platform from which to speak. Not rock stars, but on By God, Disciple commanded your attention in every aspect and in doing so garnered qualities which so many bands dream of but few attain – quality, credibility, notoriety and relevance with impact.
