Seems Brian Welch from Korn's other band Love and Death is a Christian band and it's actually really good. Listening to the lyrics and knowing about his substance abuse problem and him then getting clean (thanks to Christianity) He's trying to send out a message which isn't shoved down your throats

Just wanted to reply here and say that while I believe in God, I am not dead set on believing in Christ, I won't talk bad about the guy.. I am a deeply spiritual person... However, I have read the bible from front to back and it is a fine book, it's full of heartache, pain, betrayal, love, compassion and so forth, it takes everything in, most Christians I know are very good people, especially the devoted ones who actually live by the word, I live by that word irl, I have a set of virtues and I tend to live by them to better my life.. And with that said, I am a metalhead and listen to lots of metal music and there is LOTS of metal out there that is either very spiritual or religious, some pagan, some promote unification others are christians..

One of my current favorite ones is a oriental band called Orphaned Land who are from Israel.. Lately I have been listening to their new album "All is One" which imo is one of the best albums of 2013.. According to interviews, only Kobi is the only religious as his religion is Judaism, and the rest of the band are agnostic. Their music is first of all progressive and death metal meets Middle Eastern ethnic music and religious chants. Their message is peace and understanding, and this message is what the world really lacks. However, OL's music is more than this message - it's an intricate creative synthesis of cultures and musical genres, full or melody, contrasts, emotions as well as metal drive, and hope. You can be anyone and listen to Orphaned Land's music..



A great band from the U.S. is a power metal band known as Theocracy, they are what Christianity imo, is all about and its clear in their lyrics. What makes them so good and interesting is that they are connected directly to the One who is the Source of all the Wisdom, Power, Love, Salvation, Justice. It is for this reason that this is not about them, it is all about "Him" Theocracy originally started as a one man project but is now a full band..



A lot of power metal bands have spiritual means, a lot of power metal songs are uplifting in general.. Power Metal bands are the flag wavers of metal and in a way they keep other metal genres in check.. Many of the band members of Helloween for example, are Christians, but they are not labelled as a Christian band, but their music, but weather they like it or not, their music was a response or a alternative to the Black Metal scene in the 80's..

No matter how many times I listen to Helloween, I can't believe this was recorded in 1989..



I would say in general, the music is very, very positive, it's not religious, but you can still be religious and listen to it and this goes for A LOT of power metal bands, a lot of them will include God or some kind of savior in their music however, that doesn't make them Christians.. Bands like Manowar are all about being true to yourself and your friends and family and going out there and kicking ass..


Also.. Here is a band called Wintersun (whom is the most amazing band I have seen live..) They are very nature driven, a lot of their lyrics are about space and time and astral dimensions and so forth.. It's very.. Pagan.. Again I suppose it can be considered "religious" or if you are a religious person it may be a good band for you.. Wintersun's music is deeply divine on a philosophical scale..



And then you have power metal bands like this... One of my favorites from Germany is a band called "Freedom Call.." And while it may seem overly happy and cheesy, that's not a bad thing, whenever I am in a very good mood, Freedom Call just lightens that mood, it's great gym music and since I am a huge nerd, it is kind of nerdy music like "Dragonforce.." it is very cheesy.. But you cannot deny that they take a lot of their inspiration from God or a "savior" their music is all about power, glory and reaching paradise.. And as I have said, there is thousands of bands like this.. Heavenly, Ride the Sky, Kamelot, Power Quest, Edguy/Avantasia, Stratovarius, Rhapsody (or Rhapsody of Fire), Secret Sphere, Hammerfall, Blind Guardian, Vision Divine, Iron Savior, Primal Fear, At Vance, Masterplan, Savage Circus, Dragonland, Vexillium, Fairyland, Pagan's Mind, Voyager, Orden Ogan, Sonata Arctica, Symphony-X the list goes on forever.. Blind Guardian has even done "Christian" songs before for their Christian fan base.. Anyways here is Freedom Call..
