I remember some time back there was a thread or a post that had several good, HARD christian metal bands and songs listen. Yes, I searched and came up empty handed. So, can anybody help me find some good hard Christian Metal to lift to?
do you want bands that are christian? or bands that write songs about the christian faith?

Underoath and Norma Jean come off the top of my head.
I know there are a few bands that are popular in the secular, and few people realize they are christian, so they must be good metal haha
i like Norma Jean alot
August Burns Red
He is Legend
circle of dust/celldwellar are pretty good, though i didn't know they were christian when i listened to them.

If you are looking for a postive message neither band is the right thing to do. They would be aking to listening to NIN.
I don't know who is out there for christian metal anymore. I have alot of old stuff. Only new stuff I have is Saviour Machine.
As I Lay Dying are christian

I haven't heard any Christian metal that's anything like Slipknot. Maybe you should check out some for yourself. We aren't talking about "death metal", because that would be any oxymoron. You can have heavy music and lyrics that actually have a positive message and have a band that plays heavy music that glorifies Christ.
Marketing hype or not, I dont care so long as it has a good message.
If you type in " list of christian metal bands" in wiki you will get a full list. That's the best way to find out. As far as bands actually being christian, whose to really know? You don't know them personally. You can try to listen to music which doesn't touch topics of god or relgion so it's neutral. Just music with positive messages, and music that doesn't use profanity.

WHAT has science offered?
Not quite sure what genre they're considered though.

I'm not a christian music fan, per se, but most of the metal that I listen to has good postive uplifting lyrics(at least to me). Tool, Samael, those sort. Some of them, though, like tool, have directly anti-christian lyrics, while still invoking a good, moral posture. Are you looking specifically for religious christian metal, or just metal that has a positive vibe?
The Truth is, there is no Truth.

On a serious note though the old guitar player Monkey got saved a few years ago and walked away from Korn. I heard him on a christian talk show and was stunned when I heard that. Has a book he wrote called How I saved me from myself. Pretty interesting read.
