The Best Christian Metal Bands

If you're a fan of Christian metal, you know that what separates Christian metal bands from traditional heavy metal is that they appreciate the good book and the Lord's word. More upbeat and positive than their metal counterparts, Christian metal bands still play heavy metal, but their take on it is what makes them unique. There are separate subgenres of Christian metal, just like secular metal, and the only link between these Christian metal bands are their words. Emerging in the 1970s as a form of evangelism to counteract doom metal, Christian metal has grown over the years and is one of the more popular genres of Christian music.

So, what are the best Christian metal bands? Any list of Christian metal bands has to have the likes of P.O.D., Resurrection Band, Petra, Demon Hunter, Jerusalem, Mortification and Underoath. These are widely regarded as some of the top Christian metal bands and with good reason. Their songs resonate with a large number of fans and these Christian metal bands frequently sell out shows across the world.

That said, it's up to you to determine what are the best Christian metal bands. If you notice that a band is missing from this list, feel free to add them. This list answers the questions "who are the best christian metal bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest christian metal musician ever?" If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular christian metal bands that you might've heard of.
