Music that reaches out to today's mostly younger generation, and enables christians and non-christians to have something in common because they have similar tastes in music. It is labeled rock for its sound, not lyrics (which explains why there is also christian rap, pop, and punk music). It provides an escape from the profane and vulgar lyrics of secular rock music, and emphasizes everyday battles and temptations that we face.
Christian rock bands include Haste the Day, Still Remains, Underoath, Flee the Seen, THOUSAND FOOT KRUTCH, Chasing Victory, Pillar, The Showdown, etc.
the oh so powerful loki
The god of strife and spirit of evil. He artfully contrived the death of Balder, when Odin had forbidden everything that springs “from fire, air, earth, and water” to injure him. The mistletoe not being included was made into an arrow, given to the blind Höder, and shot at random; but it struck the beautiful Balder and killed him. This evil being was subsequently chained to a rock with ten chains, and will so continue till the twilight of the gods appears, when he will break his bonds; then will the heavens disappear, the earth be swallowed up by the sea, fire shall consume the elements, and even Odin, with all his kindred deities, shall perish.
<Loki> aka me, so fuck off.
