Christian Metal

Whereas the other genres presented here are defined by the music itself, Christian metal bands are listed as a genre based on their lyrical stance. Thus, there are Christian thrash bands (Tourniquet, Living Sacrifice), Christian doom bands (Paramaecium), Christian progressive bands (Veni Domine), and so on. Some Christian bands are preachy to the point of being obnoxious, while others are far more subtle in their approach. Stryper was one of the first bands to gain acceptance in the secular world (though just how "metal" they were is subject to debate), and then bands such as Barren Cross, Bloodgood and others came along, proving that real metal and spiritual lyrics could indeed coexist.
