This list is not all-inclusive, as I am mortal, and cannot know every band that exists, especially in the underground scene. Also, I am sure to have forgotten some. If you have a band(s) that you want me to add to the list, simply post it and I'll get around to adding it. The criteria is simply a metal or rock band that is Christian. I'm sure I'm not 100% accurate with the genres, they are a general guide to help people out. But feel free to argue with me if you think I'm crazy! The purpose of this is hopefully to provide those who like this type of music with a resource to find new bands.
Bands with an apostrophe in their name ( ' ) will not link with last.fm code. If anyone knows a solution to this issue, please leave a shout. Otherwise, last.fm links to the band's page has been provided for your convenience. Please report broken links in the shoutbox.
A special thank you to everyone who has suggested a band name to add to this list, which is growing all the time. Spread it around to your friends!
28 Dec 2010, 21:43 by zmetallicaEach week with Unearthing the Metal Underground we take a look at quality underground bands in an attempt to spread the word of lesser known acts. This week we're diving into a divisive and controversial subject: Christian "unblack" metal. Also known as "white metal" or "holy unblack metal," the genre twists the standard Satanic or anti-religious themes and instead presents a pro-Christian worldview.
Say the phrase "christian black metal" to the average metal head and you're likely to be met with a confused giggle or a baffled comparison to Jewish Nazi metal bands, but believe it or not there is a thriving religious black metal scene. While many of the black metal legions may see Christian lyrical themes as an irreconcilable contradiction, there are quite a few unblack bands with music every bit as dark and menacing as anything from the likes of Mayhemor Dimmu Borgir. This week we take a look at the "unblack" metal bands Renascent, Fearscape, and Frost Like Ashes. …
23 Dec 2006, 19:45 by T_S_M2006 was a good year for me, aside from the literal mountains of great albums released, so many that I’m not going to bother listing them here, I also happened to catch the following live acts over these past 12 months:
Black Majesty x 2
Lord x 4
Lycanthia x 2
Switchblade x 2
Transcending Mortality x 3 (Plus their original CD launch)
Though I unfortunately missed Leaves Eyes, Pegazus, Queensrÿche & Yngwie Malmsteen due to lack of funds. However already for next year I have Blind Guardian, Dream Theater, Tenacious D & Testament, also potentially DragonForce (Tour not confirmed yet) to look forward to... All I have to say is:
