I've always been interested in different kinds of music. My tastes are very open. So being the naturally diverse person of music I am, I've always wanted to hear some good metal.

Only one problem. Satan scares the shit out of me (I think his job, but w/e). And my mom probably won't appreciate me blasting any blasphemous music out of my room. I'd actually like to stay away from everything anti- or pro- religion.

So, is there any metal that doesn't have anything to do with religion, murder, cannibals, baby-murdering cannibals, and megadeathrape?

Judas Priest.

EDIT: Check out power metal also. They usually don't have lyrics about that stuff.

listen to some megadeth...lots about politics and war, and a bit of religion here and there but mostly politics.

Sounds like metal to me. Try P.O.D., pretty clean, dunno for sure about religion. I like them.

Acoustic B200H+B115 cab, Schecter Stiletto Custom 4, Rondo Fretless, Boss EQ-7.

Some men just want to watch the world burn. And they work at Behringer.

Any metal you don't hear about.


+1 to this, 75% of metal has nothing to do with any of the things you mentioned but the Rec Thread in the metal forum is always a good place to start.

P.O.D are pure christian nu-metal; very religious if you actually look.

Who cares? It's music. I listen to Satanic music and I listen to Christian music. Doesn't mean I have to believe in their message, I just dig their tunes.
You're*
#12
Well most of it isn't actually Satanic at all...

but you gave criteria about lyrics so I would advise something in either the Power, Traditional, or Progressive metal genres

If you want to listen to a death metal band with non-offensive lyrics (supposedly, i haven't yet checked) then listen to Lykathea Aflame

EDIT- I haven't listened to them yet, but Gojira is another death metal band that I heard sings about the environment and stuff...

TS, your view is very biased at the moment. Go read up on the FAQs in the metal forum.

Christian Metal?

JESUS IS PURITY!!!!!! KILL SATAN!!!!

Something of that nature...

They're actually very clean in terms of lyrics. Not a lot of religious stuff either.

so true, people who think metal music is some kinda portal to hell are f***ing stupid
#20
i don't know if you want to count metalcore bands, but all that remains is pretty non-offensive, as their lyrics deal mostly with personal struggle and that sort of message
#21
I'd say 99.9% of those bands(I don't say 100% because I'm sure theres BOUND to be one out there) use death growls or screams, or some other kind of vocal style normal people(your mom) wouldn't be able to understand, so what's the problem?

Listen to Progressive Metal then.

It's all about the music in prog...
#31
Most metal lyrics are usually completely meaningless or has nothing to do with religion/violence, so I don't think you should really worry about.

...modes and scales are still useless.

He bought my soul for a really large sum of money.

great deal, i'd say.

oh, and if you're into more technical stuff, look up Architects, Iwrestledabearonce*, Dillinger Escape Plan, and The Number 12 Looks Like You.

* Just discovered these guys, a little extreme but i LOVE their combination of the offbeat fusion and grind.

If you want more modern stuff, without screaming, check out Dream Theater, Symphony X, and Cynic.

Also, it's more like shoegaze black metal, but Alcest is amazing. It's like happy, nostalgic black metal with singing.

Lol, i guess you got the thread wrong so I have to quote you again in this thread...

Anyway, Last time I checked Cynic was a death metal band...

If you want a good first metal song, try out the song "The faded line" by Lamb of god. It's a good one to pop yer metal cherry.

Their new album has less growling... And they're not really death metal in the same sense as... Cannibal Corpse, or Atheist, or Pestilence or something. They're more prog/tech metal.
