Yes they are a christian band. Their name also comes from the title of a book if you didn't know.

As I Lay Dying is more like 5 Christians in a band, and the influences of their faith sometimes shine through in the lyrics.

It may not make them Satanists, but being a Christian metal band kinda makes them hypocrites. As I recall, metal always had a lot to do with rebellion and scaring people. Christianity, on the other hand, basically relies on people blindly believing the Bible. I'm not dissing either here, even though I'm not a huge fan, but they don't mix. Rebellion sprouts from questioning while faith basically comes from not questioning.

Who cares what metal has dealt with in the past. It's a style of music not a life style or religious view on life. People can play what ever style of music they wish, it doesn't change who they are. Their lyrics are true to them, very true and meaningful.

Rebellion =/= Aggressive Music

A lot of these kids gain a lot of influence through Metal bands. They just take what they learn from listening to that style of music and apply their beliefs to it. A certain type of music does not always link to a certain idea. Lyrics change the ideas of the music, not the notes played.
Gear:
Schecter C-1 BlackJack
Peavey 5150 II
Ibanez 25W "Tone Blaster"
Fender Starcaster (Not the vintage kind, the Wal-Mart Value kit kind"

If Dimebag22 was a pie, I would cover him with whipped cream and eat his insides...

Well, I suppose it depends on your viewpoint, obviously.

It's extremely easy to sleep with whoever you want, curse, sin...

Meh, nvm. I'd start on a religious rant that would get me flamed/asked to move to the religion thread, so whatever.

My basic point is that metal is a style of music. This metal happens to have some Christian dudes in it. Good stuff.
Who dat?

Meh, whatever floats their boat. As long as I still get to sit back and listen to my ska and whatnot, I'm fine with whatever these bands want to do.

No you haven't. No real satanist would listen to that band, whether they were christian or not.
