There's a great number of acts in the rock/ metal scene today which promote a Christian message. This doesn't have to state 'Drop to your knees and believe in Jesus...NOW!' - it usually has a positive message about doing good deeds, acting right and having a nice attitude towards life regardless of it's hardships. Here's a few bands you might've heard about smile.gif







Which is your favorite Christian band? If you have one of course smile.gif

I agree mate, and to add (I hope it doesn't sound controversial) if more people followed some of very basic religion life guidelines, it would be a lot better World. These messages should be very important, and the music is great too smile.gif

Okay, now this is live, and pretty rough, but it is from 1993. This is my favorite Christian Metal band. I played bass in a Christian Metal band back then called Burnt Offering, but we didn't make a video.
Here is their live video

and here is one of their songs from an album The Passing: http://youtu.be/OAJ19llLxcs

I played and listened to Christian Metal back in the 90's and have lost touch with the scene. Any more recommendations in this area would be great! Thanks for the great music.

Yeah! I love that "Alive" by P.O.D. Just curious, Cosmin, do you believe in Jesus as a Christian? I do - I was just curious to know where you stand on that. wink.gif

EDIT: Oh, my favorite Christian band is RED.

I must confess, I didn't really think there were christian metal bands until I saw Cosmin's latest lessons. Now I found out that As I lay Dying and Killswitch Engage are christian metal bands as well.

I think it is great when bands have a positive message in their lyrics. I didn't really check out all of their lyrics, so I wonder why is it called christian metal? Do these bands at some point refer to God or Jesus? Or do they just promote a positive lifestyle? And if it is the latter, why would a positive lifestyle be called christian? Just curious, I know discussions like this can easily get out of hand...

Hey Brandon! I don't believe in church and fanatic religious behavior, but I do believe in kindness, ethical principles, good will, ambition and hard work and I think God does too smile.gif

I'm not quite sure how telling people to accept an ancient mythological deity as their savior or else spend an eternity in the flames of hell could be considered a positive message, but it does make for some good music. I never really got into the whole Christian rock/metal scene, but I'm really digging Pillar.

If people just followed the Golden Rule, i.e. treat others as you would want to be treated, the world would be a better place. Contrary to what some may believe, religion doesn't have a monopoly on morality.

As far as I am concerned, Becoming The Archetype is one of the few bands who are Christian and have strong christian messages that I highly respect and love. I usually strongly dislike christian music because it preaches, and I hate preaching (don't mean to sound angry if I do tongue.gif ), BTA have enough intelligence and musical interests to make to use elements like allegory and symbolism, they cloak there personal belief in subtle lyrics most of the time, allowing me to enjoy my own interpretation of them.

Typical christian music doesn't allow my mind this luxury, its far too direct in its delivery - it doesn't allow (me) any room for interpretation and thus I just can't enjoy it.

That being said...



Perfect example of what I said, lyrics are generally about a plague or flesh eating virus. Although this is just a metaphor for Jason Wisdom (bass player/ singer) and his beliefs. While I may not share those beliefs, the song is open.

This is one of my all time favorite bands, awesome power trio. I wouldnt call them a hardcore christian band but the lyrics are somewhat religious or spiritual and uplifting, here is a small write up I found on them.

King's X is an American hard rock band that combines progressive metal, funk and soul with vocal arrangements influenced by gospel, blues, and British Invasion pop groups. The band's lyrics are largely based on the members' struggles with religion and self-acceptance.

FLYLEAF -Great Band. Don't consider themselves a christian band but all the members are.
Lacey Sturm is lead vocals awesome. smile.gif






I pretty much disagree that christianity is all about morals. Morals might be an end result of living as a christian but that's a side issue.
check out Lacey's Sturm's thoughts on it in this video.
