Shit like Demon Hunter and Impending Doom though, well I hate the music.

See what I hate is how bands like For Today give a long speech about their religion. The one time I saw them it was nearly 5 minutes and the second time was a few minutes.

Just do like TDWP does now and say their believe in god while thanking the crowd. No speech needed.

I listen to as much Behemoth as I do Neal Morse. and lyrics are the last thing I pay attention to in a band.

The music is what matters most. If you can't write good music, it doesn't matter how much you worship God, Satan, Titties, etc. YOU SUCK!

Why don't lyrics matter as much as the music? Lyrics matter to me. The music, the lyrics etc it all helps to create the song. Everything that goes into creating a song are important.

I want a band that worships nothing but titties.

Think about it in Death Metal, Black Metal Grindcore, etc. Do you honestly understand all the words the first time you hear a new song. Of course not, it takes a couple listens. But the music is what draws you in.

I also listen to a lot of instrumental music as well. Lyrics can't and don't offend me. Shitty music does.

I haven't heard a good Christian Metal band yet.
I always thought it would be lame but then I heard Hardcore Punk legends Circle One.
Plus Bad Brains have very religious lyrics. So no I dont mind,but havent heard a metal Jesus band that rules.

I picked fuck christianity just saying in general but honestly I don't care if members of a band are christian. If the lyrics were about their religion that would probably take me out of it and keep me from enjoying the band.
