The Christian message is an ever-growing theme in Metal. From the early days it was looked at like a fluke, but now some of the biggest bands in Metal have Christian members, like, Iron Maiden, Megadeth and Dream Theater.
But there are those bands which put their faith in Jesus Christ at the forefront of the their music, and those are the bands that I wanted to poll. I picked what I thought were the 8 most popular bands from this faith, but left the "other" option just in case there are other choices. This list just deals with regular Metal bands, and not the Metalcore scene, which is heavily populated with Christian bands. So please don't pick "other" if your choice is a Metalcore band.
So, please pick your favorite, and tell us a little bit as to why.
For me, I have to go with Living Sacrifice. While Stryper is will always hold a place in my heart, Living Sacrifice is still my pick. Their albums are all solid releases filled with some brutal music and powerful lyrics. Even since their break up they're still noted as being a huge force is the Christian music scene.
Don't know if I already posted here but whatever I said... Now my choice would be Sympathy no doubt, Christian Technical Death Metal band from Canada, saskatchewan. Crazy shit I tell you. so its a ''other'' vote
- I love my technical, melodic, my thrash, agressive and fast paced, my sludge, well thought, my heavy, heavier and my metal, ever-growing -
I agree with Boxcar Willy. Demon hunter is my favorite Christian metal band (Lifewar ). Apart from them, As I Lay Dying, Old Scar Symmetry , Blind Guardian(I know it's disagreeable but has Christian themes), August Burns Red , Inhale Exhale, Whitechapel to name a few.
Tell me about it. Christianity has never been more fun.
Even if it wasn't about christianity I would still laugh my ass off at the discussion. It's priceless.
Dammit, where was I during this!!
It seemed like I posted here just before the shit hit the fan
It's funny how people judge other people just by a certain stereotype or what they've heard from the tube or the media.
Its like me saying, that all black men have big dicks, can play basketball and love chicken, all indians wear turbans and speak indian or all swedish women are sluts.
I mean thats pretty much what you hear right? I love stereotypes, its awesome to make fun off and perfect for jokes, but when you do take them seriously and judge everyone by it, thats kinda fucked up. Judging a whole religion by the action of a few people is stupid.
If you never wake up from a dream does it become reality?
Not sure how popular they are, but the black metal band "Crimson Moonlight" are my personal favorite christian. Besides being a christian metal band, they also demonstrate great musicianship in terms of guitar work, drumming, song structure, and they also have pretty well writen lyrics as well
"The bands called Demon Hunter! They hunt demons!"
Even though I'm not the biggest fan of Christian metal you'll find, I do like me some Mortification! Especially their 1992 release "Scrolls of the Megilloth". if you weren't old they were a christian metal band before listening to this album (and you weren't following along with the lyrics), you probably wouldn't have guessed it. It's a brutal slab of death metal with some grindcore influences. Great stuff. \m/
...And so death to the falsity of thy former rulers. Thy kingdom of "heaven" burns in a field of fire, and Dentura is the one true God thou must yield thy hearts and souls to in absolute submission. It is his ultimate decree and will unto thee..
My favourite is Virgin Black. But other Christian bands that I really like are: Saviour Machine, Antestor, Demon Hunter (and I don't give a crap if you don't like Metalcore!), Crimson Moonlight, Theocracy, Flyleaf and Paramaecium.
