Metal songs about God can include Christian metal bands’ tunes of praise or songs that go in an entirely different direction – a much darker one. This list of God metal songs includes both varieties. Some songs listed here are inspirational, others are skeptical, but all will encourage listeners to think about religion and what it means to them personally.

Traditional Christian heavy metal bands perform plenty of metal songs about religion. And perhaps no metal band that sings about Jesus and religion is more well-known than Stryper. The band’s first album was released in 1984 and back then, they opened for mainstream rock bands like Bon Jovi and Ratt. Stryper is included on this list with “To Hell With the Devil,” the title track from the band’s third album, released in 1986.

Mainstream heavy metal songs about God can be found too, though they are decidedly different in tone. Some question the existence of a higher power. Many heavy metal songs about Jesus and religion in general point out possible hypocrisy – and televangelists are a frequent target of ire. Examples of this include “Make Me Laugh” by Anthrax and “Leper Messiah” by Metallica.

Vote for your favorite metal songs about God and church, and vote down any of these religious-themed songs that you don’t think fit the bill.
