So, I play in a christian band, and I also love metal music (and so does my youth minister). So, does anyone know of any good christian metal bands/songs we could do at church/youth, whatever?

I'm thinking of classic metal type, ala Priest, Maiden, etc.

Thanks!!!

Tourniquet

obviously if you own an expensive guitar, 500 watt amp, and power tab, you are an unstoppable force of shred

well since your youth minister is a fan of metal maybe you could play "number of the beast"

Black Sabbath.

EDIT: ^The drummer of the band has stated before that that song is more of a warning of the pitfalls of Satanism rather than glorifying it, see if you can get away with that.

Or, just do what I do when I have my guitar at church, play as much black metal as you possibly can.

It's quite a bitch to figure out the lyrics through Gaahl's English/Norwegian singing, it's best just to go with the next best thing, Dark Funeral.

Skillet is suck... Disciple and Pillar are hard rock.

For oldschool metal, check out Narnia, Stryper, and X-Sinner.

You should look into some Candlemass. They play doom metal but their first albums came out mid to late 80s so maybe they have that kinda traditional sound youre looking for. They have alot of Biblically inspired lyrics. The song Samirithian is particularly uplifting to me. Check them out either way as they are top quality metal.

I don't know of a lot of classic type Christian Metal bands. I would suggest Tourniquet. Oh, yea! Try looking up Narnia. They are Progressive Metal band a lot like Dream Theater and Symphony X. Great band.

I give you brownie points if you can get away with this.

I will give you points if you keep that stuff in the Hardcore forum.

anything off of Becoming the Archetype's Terminate Damnation should be okay

Uh theres this other one, the name escapes me...

Schaliach -members of antestor, me think- I think something along those lines
but for that you'd just have to figure it out, no tabs

I suggest you retire. Christian metal is a joke. Metal is about standing on your feet not on your knees.

NAILED. DEAD. RISEN.

Impending Doom and Antestor are good starts.

What's even more a joke than Christian metal, are the wanna-be Norwegian kids who dress up like pandas.

Give up on the metal has a religion horse ****.
That's all it is.
Metal is music.
And the best kind of music, at that.

Check out the album called Dragonslayer by Dream Evil. They aren't a Christian band I don't think, but this album sounds about as Christian as it gets, and they are true power metal. One of the songs on the album is heavy metal jesus X] its actually a pretty sick album, and my favorite by them.

EDIT: Check out the Song Melancholy (holy martyr) by Iced Earth as well
