  • Comprehensive List of Christian Metal and Rock Bands

    1 Apr 2011, 21:15 by mrmichel0927

    Welcome!

    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!
  • The Blue Wall: Metalcore

    24 Dec 2008, 17:00 by maidenhell

    Metalcore is an umbrella term used to describe fusion genres that incorporate elements of the hardcore punk and heavy metal genres. The term is a combination of heavy metal and hardcore punk. The term took on its current meaning in the mid-1990s, describing bands like Earth Crisis, Deadguy and Integrity.

    The earliest of these groups, Integrity, began performing in 1989. Metalcore is distinguished from other punk metal fusions by its emphasis on breakdowns: slower, intense passages conducive to moshing.
