“Initiation, Lost Souls” of TAOD.
I was consumed.
EDIT: I just realized I never said “when” this happened. So, this happened in 2000. I was in High School and a friend of mine encouraged me to listen to a CD of a new album from a band he enjoyed. To him at the time, I think he generally liked AFI but I don’t think he was confined to them at all.
Regardless, he gave me his headphones and I began listening to (without knowing what it was, other than him telling me “you gotta listen to this new AFI CD”) Initiation, into Lost Souls. I remember how much I loved Initiation. It had the creepy vibe to it with how the music was hovering all around you it seemed, then all of a sudden it smacked you in the face. I loved it.
When I listened to Lost Souls… I was completely sold. I loved Davey’s voice, especially when he sings, “I will! I’ll seep under your skin! I will! I’ll hold onto your heart! I will!”. With that being said, I’ve even thought about having the lyrics, “You’ve made me perfect” on my back because of how much AFI changed me life.
