OK, I have to ask. ARE THERE Christian metal bands? I ask because in my unregenerate days, I was quite the metal head (tattoos, played bass in bands, was the "singer", etc.). If there are such bands that are truly Christian, I would be interested in knowing.<br><br>Steve

I find "some" new good music out there, but very little. I have never found anything "rocky" or "metalish" to glorify God ....., but again this is only my opinion. Hymns are my favorite and normally the older the better.

Well I can't see inside their hearts to know if they are truly Christians but they profess it and i don't see anything to make me believe otherwise. Some of them are actually just Christians in a band. ANd thats actually pretty good to because even though the songs are not Christian songs they are still a good alternative to all the profanity and violence of the secular stuff. But like i said its an acquired taste. I think the way music sounds is up to the listener. I always listen to the words to make sure there is nothing in them that is questionable. <br><br> [img]http://www.the-highway.com/w3timages/icons/bash.gif" alt="bash" title="bash[/img] i feel pretty stupid for not getting that "the Rock" statement that Joe made.

Don't feel stupid, the statement first made me think of "the Rock" from Pro Wrestling/movies. Then I thought it meant something about that ol' commercial "get a piece of the rock!". Finally, I figgered out the meaning. <br>Oh wait, maybe I'm stupid too :)<br>Steve

Aquired taste, yes, but acquired from what, who, and where? I do not doubt that some have good intentions, maybe even Christians, et. al., but simply ask yourself does it (the words, melody, et.al.) glorify God? If it does then you have nothing to be concerned with. But, if it doesn't, well then you will "wonder if" and probably post questions about it, et. al.

Like i said. I wouldn't listen to something with questionable lyrics. But how can a melody in itself glorify or not glorify God. ITs just sounds. Noise. Its the lyrics that really make the difference. This of course is my opinion.

I'm not to crazy about classical but i love me some hymns. I still find myself singing the hymns i grew up on in the little methodist church i attended. Except now they actually mean something to me.

Is there ANYTHING that exists which is "amoral"; indeed can there be such a thing? Can there be something which doesn't glorify God yet is deemed "good"? [Linked Image]<br><br>

And neither is there anything Biblical that says the melody of "Rock of Ages" (Toplady's version, not Def Leppard) glorifies God.<br>However, I would say Rock of Ages (again, Toplady) is the greatest hymn ever. But not because of the melody.<br><br>Thus, Zar's point is a great one. The music is just that...music. The lyrics would be what counts.<br><br>Is the music itself "amoral"? Depends how it is used, right? Is a computer amoral? If I look at internet porn, it is immoral. If I read the Bible online or read the works of AW Pink online, then it is a great tool for me to learn more about God. So too if guitar music accompanies godly lyrics, then the guitar music is not immoral, but if it accompanies Slayer or Megadeth, then it is pretty immoral.<br><br>Steve

So, at this point, I think I'm just going to make my way off stage and let you "metalheads" or whatever the correct terminology is nowadays, [img]http://www.the-highway.com/w3timages/icons/rofl.gif" alt="rofl" title="rofl[/img] have at it.
