While doing a random picture search for necrotizing faciitis I came a cross the following image:

I thought, damn, that's a bad ass looking cover. So I start reading on the site it's linked to and I find out it belongs to a CHRISTIAN metal band.

My world has been broken in two, guys... They're actually good...

I'm fine with doing both, but it depends on the situation and how comfortable I am with the RP, plot, or subject matter of the RP.

I'm torn between saying "This goes against metal by the definition of them believing in God." or "Oh, Christian metal, same shit as every other band, but they sing 'bout JESUS CHRIST! (Still the same shit!)"


If you ask me, though, you do not mix lyrics that talk about not thinking with ANY music because that kinda defeats the purpose of making music.

I do not believe in Christian Metal. It does not exist. Because of what they sing about, they would probably live in the realm of Emo - which, in my thoughts, is all music but metal.

I'm sorry if you feel this is a flame, because it's not, and I've heard some pretty good heavy christian bands and believe in what they do, that Religion does not have to equal social standards, but because they base they base their music off something other than rage, hate and fear-mongering, they are emo without the hair.

Fantasy, Horror and Sci-fi. I'll try basically anything though. I also love strange and unusual RP genre concepts. Different is good!

I'll try just about anything. I'm not overly into RPs where the prime focus is romance. I'm not too hyped on fan based anime rp either.

You can't have Christian Metal without Stryper.

IDK about Metal...
But I'm friends with a relatively popular Christian Rock band called The Turning.

A lot of the stuff they sing about, you can't even tell it's god related. That's why I like them. Not to mention, I had a crush on the bass player. X3

There is no profit in this way of thinking
I must escape this frame of mind
And when I think of all He has done
When I consider all that He is
I am complete
It's not about not thinking. It's about casting off useless thoughts. Like say, in the context of the rest of the lyrics, "Maybe God's too distant and I should be depressed." Opposite of emo really to say something like "life's not that bad, I should just get over it."

Thanks for the link Ryker. Never heard of these guys.

Well, I didn't mean I'm not into metal, Darkness.
I'm not into christian metal.
I like Slipknot, She wants Revenge, Maximum the Hormone, and some local bands...Stuff like that.
I don't believe "Heretic Anthem" counts as christian. lol

So, This song says "You bring me closer to God" in it.
Does this mean it's Christian?
