A bad joke.
Christian Metal? Are you %$#@ing kidding me?
Any kind of metal music made by Christians, some people doubt the legitimacy of Christian metal because of the stereotypical anti-religious attitude of many extreme metal bands. There is no certain genre of christian metal, it depends on the music itself. Unfortunately, it is sometimes given a bad name by generic trendy bands who pretend to be 'the only alternative to all this evil satanic metal'
This is what the media tends too believe as well, Some good advice is to ignore trendwhoring groups and media image. In the massive underground metal scene, many AWESOME Christian metal bands exist.
Some great Christian death metal bands are: Crimson Thorn, Anaemia, Lament, Discarnated, and Mortification.
Other Christian metal bands (I won't bother to list genres) are Renascent, Crimson Moonlight, Theocracy, Far Beyond, Divine Symphony, Antestor, Immortal Souls, Shadows Fall (Yes, they are a GOOD metalcore band) and Stryper.
If you aren't Christian, or not religious (like me) Headbang!
If you are Christian, Headbang! and pay attention to the lyrics.
Some elitists think Christian metal isn't good because the bands are religious....funny...I don't think that stops them from playing heavy music
Person 1: Mortification's 'Scrolls Of The Megilloth' and Crimson Thorn's 'Dissection' are Death Metal masterpeices, by Christian metal bands.
Person 2: Christian Death Metal??
Person 1: Yep, listen to this (shows person 2 Mortification)
Person 2: Wow, killer Death Metal!
A sorry excuse for "good christians" to listen to heavy music without being thought of as an atheist or "evil".
*Person 1 is listening to heavy screamo-like music.*
Person 2: Dude turn that shit off thats not even music. It sounds like satanic music.
Person 1: Nah man it's a christian metal band, it's not evil at all.
Person 2: Oh okay makes total sense.
