After the World just melted me

now I have to buy 2 more cds :shrug: :slight_smile:

Their self titled album is amazing as well. I think that Scars Remain is their best, but Disciple runs a close second. I had bought their album ‘This Might Sting a Little’ a long time ago and then had forgot about them. Then someone from CAF posted a video that he made with After the World as the song, I was hooked and still am.

:slight_smile: :cool:

also that After the World has to go down as a classic!

when I heard

Did I create the rhythm your heart makes?

it was shivers :slight_smile:
