I used the searchbar, and, well, I didn't look very hard, but nothing came up so....

What are some good Chrisitian hardcore/metalcore bands?

I know the obvious ones like August Burns Red, The Devil Wears Prada, Underoath, Demon Hunter.

I'm looking for stuff that I can draw inspiration from, and seeing as how I'm a born-again chrisitian, I figured some good christian hardcore bands might do the trick

P.S. Please don't make this a flame-thread about religion

only andrew and jeremy were christian. right now, jeremy is the only christian in the band. they were never a christian band but they were lumped in the group because they were signed to a christian label, who were friends with andrew.

Who says Christians can't smoke pot? The closest the bible comes to mentioning pot is a possible reference to it being one of the ingredients in the anointing oil in the temple.

First off the Bible says to obey the laws of the land unless they clearly go against God's word. Second, it's the same as getting drunk because your in an altered state of mind. Drinking is not a sin but the Bible clearly talks against getting drunk.

It mostly for ispirational purposes. I don't just listen to christian hardcore. I listen Throwdown, Carnifex, Atreyu, BFMV, heck, I even listen Slayer regularly. I just wanted some more christian hardcore act that I can listen to and learn from

I recently put a couple of songs by them on my Ipod.
That "Curses! Another Shapshifting...(w/e)" is pretty sick.
The other song was named "Complete Relinquish" or something like that and it was ... different ... but i still liked the fact that they can write stuff like the first song I mentioned and yet still slow things down, add piano, and sing with it as well.

Not to mention his voice isnt all that bad.
