Favorite Christian Metal Songs


I know that we've done similar things before, but we've had some new members lately and our tastes and opinions also change over time.  It's also a great way to discover new music.  For this thread, you are going to post your top 5 favorite songs for each subgenre.  Feel free to also comment on anyone else's post.

Every week or so, I will post that it's time for a new subgenre.  We'll go in this order:


Death Metal (traditional) - i.e. Mortification, Crimson Thorn, Tortured Conscience, Metanoia, Lament, etc.

Black/Unblack Metal - i.e. Hortor, Horde, Elgibbor, Evroklidon, etc.

Thrash Metal - i.e. Deliverance, Tourniquet, Believer (early days), Seventh Angel (early days), Vengeance Rising, etc.

Power Metal - i.e. Theocracy, Harmony, Narnia, Divinefire, Rob Rock, etc.

Hardcore - i.e. Focused, Strongarm, Sleeping Giant, Overcome, Call to Preserve, etc.

Folk Metal - i.e. Holy Blood, Arvinger, Vaakevandring, etc.

Progressive Metal - i.e. Veni Domine, Believer (later days), Manahem, etc.

Doom Metal (traditional) - i.e. Place of Skulls, Nomad Son, Pylon, David Benson, etc.

Melodic Death Metal - i.e. Immortal Souls, Hilastherion, Sympathy, Solamors, Renascent, Soul Embraced, etc.

Metalcore - i.e. August Burns Red, Underoath, Destroy the Runner, Haste the Day, etc.

Heavy Metal - i.e. Barren Cross, Saint, Bloodgood, Sacred Warrior, etc.

Brutal Death Metal, Slam Metal and  Grindcore - i.e. Broken Flesh, Eternal Mystery, Vomitorial Corpulence, Spirit's Breeze, etc.

Gothic Metal - i.e. Saviour Machine, Virgin Black, Amos, Illuminandi, etc.

Deathcore - i.e. Impending Doom, In the Midst of Lions, With Blood Comes Cleansing, Second Thief, etc.

Post-Hardcore - i.e. Burden of a Day, I Am Alpha and Omega, Cry of the Afflicted, Fallstar, etc.

Death/Doom Metal - i.e. Paramaecium, GROMS, Dalit, etc.

Southern Metal - The Showdown, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, Divide the Sea, etc.

ANYTHING ELSE (Glam Metal, Nu Metal, Crust, Post-Metal, Viking Metal, Monkish Chanting, etc.) - If it didn't fit somewhere else, put it here.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


If you're not sure where something fits, you can always shoot me a message. This is more of a guide than anything, it's okay if you're not an ace at identifying subgenres.


You may provide YouTube links to songs if you like, but that is not a requirement.


And remember...have fun!!!! :D

Love to see Metanoia on your list! 


For me it was really hard to choose a Mortification track.  Depending on my mood, it could by any number of songs lol
