Ok, so I know most of you are really skeptical of metal. The metal kind of music, that is. Well, about this time last year, I felt the same way. Roaring to the music just seemed kind of, I don't know, overkill. After all, why can't you just sing to the music? Well, I heard music from a band called Demon Hunter, and I only liked one song: "Not Ready To Die." After listening to it a few dozen times, I ventured to hear the rest of the album...and then the rest of their albums...and then other Christian artists of similar styles. Now, as a metal fanatic, I can tell you that it definitely has an acquired taste.
The thing that I like so much about metal, is that it is highly influential. The lyrics are screamed, making them quite effective in getting to the listeners. Not only that, but Christian metal is an effective outlet for fans of secular metal artists to hear the truth. Of course, I am not supportive of the artists that claim to be Christian without reflecting it in their lyrics.
Now that you've heard my propoganda, here is my favorite song ever! "Not Ready To Die!"
