Metal music

Postby prunehairs » Fri Apr 12, 2013 5:29 pm

I am just curious, does anyone here listen to metal or any of the sub genres of metal? I have been a metal-head since I was about 10 years old. However, I don't think many Christians listen to metal because it is generally not very Christian like. If you do listen to any metal please feel free to let me know and share some bands :) If you have any opinions of metal music feel free to leave them as well.

There a couple metal heads here. There are also more christian metal bands than you might think. Some people can help you with that.

As for myself, I'm more partial to the symphonic/operatic metal, like Nightwish and Epica.

I love metal, but I've been distracted by dubstep lately. I grew up on things like sevendust and POD. I still rock out some old school POD occasionally. I think sevendust might have some darker songs than POD, I can't remember very well.

There's very, very few decent Christian metal bands. Becoming the Archetype, Paramaecium, Zao, and Vaakevandring are pretty much the top end.

That said you'll find a fair share of metalheads 'round here. I've been listening to a lot of folk metal lately (Korpiklaani, Eluveitie, Bran Barr, Falkenbach), but I tend to go just about any direction on a given day, from Mayhem or Meshuggah to lighter stuff like Epica or Evergrey. Except nu-metal. Where I come from we sacrifice those people to Odin.

I grew up a metalhead in High school. I still have the long hair and whatnot, though I cut it pretty short now. Some of my older screen names are "samklok", based on the band in the show Metalocalypse. I also really liked Mushroomhead. Slipknot was the enemy in my eyes.

Though, truthfully, I'm more of a metalcore fan. I really like Opeth, Unearth, Killswitch Engage and older Avenged Sevenfold pre-City of Crap (Evil).



One of my favourites.

Wow, there are more metalheads than I expected! After reading your responses I have some new bands to check out!

My taste in music may be severely outdated, though. I haven't really listened to anything modern in a very long time.

Mainly because *surprise* I hate most modern music. And I hate anything that's in any way related to techno.

EDIT- Wow, I just realized I called Opeth metalcore. They're not.

Haters. :P

I'ma a semi metal head, with the addendum that I stick with the Christian flavored variety. I remain unashamed of this. Some of my favorites are Demon Hunter, The Devil Wears Prada, and InnerSiege. Far, far at the top of my list is Theocracy, which always blows my mind.

I've also recently started listening to Divinefire, but I have none of their CD's. I will second Oro's recommendations though. The Chariot is also good if you like the sound of nails in a blender. :P

Very nice chozon I myself used to be into the Devil Wears Prada. I haven't listened to them in a while but they are still great! August burns red and For Today are some more Christian bands, you might have an interest in them. :)

I am very much a metalhead, a quality of which my friends think is "real cool" and which my parents think is "annoying". I highly recommend Divinefire and The Letter Black, although Opeth and Animal Couch are pretty good, too. BTW prune hairs, your avatar is awesome. :mrgreen:

I'm definitely a metalhead to a certain degree too.

It can be hard to find good metal that isn't explicitly anti-Christian but it is out there. I used to be into the Christian Metalcore scene but no so much anymore. I stick with melodic, power, or symphonic metal for the most part. My favorite bands I like are Amon Amarth, Epica, Nightwish, Blind Guardian, Sabaton, and the parody metal band Dethklok (though some of their later stuff wasn't that good IMO).

Oh man, early Dethklok and Metalocalypse is so good.

Symphonic metal is some awesome, stuff, too.
Did you ever listen to Epica's Classical Conspiracy album?

Yeah man, I loved the first and second albums, even if the second one was a bit more serious. The third album I didn't like because it just didn't feel like Dethklok.

Honestly I just got into them recently so I am still getting more of their stuff :-).

Definitely check it out, especially if you like more symphonic scores and movie soundtracks.

Have you been into Nightwish long? What do you think of the new singers vs. Tarja?
