    Default Hard music for the Christian warrior?

    Don't get me wrong I enjoy much of the hard "secular" music it's just I sometimes want a different "message"
    Just curious what you all may listen to.

    A few bands I enjoy.
    Red
    Brian Head Welch
    Living Sacrifice
    Project 86

    Honestly...the only place I listen to Christian Music is at church.

    Rest of the time I am either listening to Fox Business, or Five Finger Death Punch. There are some good metal Christian bands I am told, but I am not familiar enough to comment.

    I think the closest I come to anything like that is Skillet. I have been listening to a lot of Amon Amarth tonight. Viking metal.

    I like Red and some Skillet... not really sure why they are labeled Christian, though. The Christian message is very veiled, often doctrinely incorrect, and often nonexistent. I don't like most Christian hard rock... it's generally annoying wannabe music.

    I like Sabaton. They have clean lyrics, for the most part, a good warrior feel, and tell the history of warfare through metal. Tyr, Turisas, and Power Quest (if you like nerdy power metal) all have some good songs, but will have songs with "darker" lyrical content mixed in, which I am not as fond of.

    Petra, especially in the late 1980s/early 1990s.

    Nothing recent on my play list for Christian metal ... but that might be just my ignorance. My favs were Holy Soldier, Mass, and Whitecross.

    Well said. I liked Skillet in the late 90's, but got the same impression as you from listening to their newer stuff. I think some of the "Christian" bands are really just in the Christian genre because they're not good enough to make it in the larger secular pool.

    Most of the Christian rock/metal I like is older stuff now. Two of my favorites are Michael Sweet's "Truth" album (he was from the old band Stryper) and Detritus' "If But For One" album. Both have strong messages but are pretty good music too.

    Sabaton is fun to listen to.

    I don't really do "heavy metal" though. I'm an unapologetic 90's - late 2000's punk / pop punk fan.
