Why no Christian music as good as SLAYER ????

Seriously, why isn't there any good non cheesy Christian music as good as Slayer ? Slayer has all the cool riffs, but the most negative things strung together in lyrics I've ever heard....and I love the band...but hate what they pretend to represent...I need some positive music w/ Slayer quality riffs....Christian rock just isn't doing it for me...

Not a fan of POD?

I always liked Strongarm and Focused back in the day. Not metal, but still good.

My taste have drifted in my old age. Like Anberlin a lot now.

Uh, Stryper?

slayer sucks but one of their members is a good catholic

If you like in your face hard heavy music I think six feet deep were damn good as were focused and Crucified, but Handel was a Christian artist and he pretty much blows away anything slayer ever even thought of doing

Wasn't Myk Porter in Six Feet Deep? They and the Crucified rock!

Good call, Rev.

I hate metal, what can I say?

If you think Slayer sucks...then there's no point in discussing music with....but you've always been cool w/ me Rev so we'll just leave the music stuff alone....and I'm not a fan of the newer or Nu metal out today... yeah it's well done, but it's unoriginal and is in no way harder. faster, or more extreme than the metal of the 80's and 90's....just a re-hashed rerun...just wish there was a Christian band w/ riffs and style as good as Slayer.

12 stones is good Phone Post

POD and No Innocent Victim are good Christian bands. As I Lay Dying has good stuff too now. Phone Post

oh ya and BlessTheFall. Phone Post

I come from an era when metal and punk are mortal enemies, I never moved on from that. So Slayer being metal, I hate them, simple as that. Nothing logical about it :)

Actually, this is wonderful logic in my eyes.

Give ZAO a try. Their old stuff was more black metal, but their new album is more death/fast metal. Where Blood and Fire Bring Rest is AMAZING!! Let me know if you have any questions about it. Maybe not necessarily positive lyrics, but definitely not Slayer lyrics either.

Check out one of my favorite Christian band RED:

Yeah Red is pretty good also Phone Post

How about Sonata Artica? Lost horizon? Not Christian but not death or satanic metal.

I grew up loving everything. All eras of 80's-90's metal, NY Harcdcore, Punk, etc...too much good stuff in there from all those genres to turn your nose up to one entirely...although after it's all said and done Punk is definitely at the bottom of the list for me these days.
