If you were to actually do that, I would have to give you the "Internet metal nerd douchelord of the year award" and hate you forever, but since you didn't, you're still that cool guy on this site that likes Fleshgod a ton.

I actually realize now how douchey that would be, and wouldn't do that.
Just a heat of the moment post in response to the lyrics I was reading from that single of theirs.

Yeah, they're pretty well articulated, though I wish they would still stray from the path a bit. Behemoth do that type of shit way better than anyone I know of.

I think there's a ton of awesome potential for Christian lyrics, too, that For Today and Sleeping Giant take advantage of to an extent: the Bible is inherently a violent book. There are wars. There's tons of death. The whole thing lies on the crux of a huge battle that all the dead will come back to be judged and finally conquer evil with force. It's really awesome imagery if you look at it from an unbiased perspective, like how we look at Amon Amarth or Nile's lyrics and think they're awesome since they revolve around mythology of different cultures. This is just a different type of mythology.

If they're cool guys then I guess I can appreciate that.

The problem with that is that I'd assume most Christian Metal bands want to take the preachy approach, or not really preachy but that they don't want to talk about their faith from a mythological perspective. But I wouldn't know of course, I've never bothered to look into Christian Metal lyrics much since I only like 1 christian metal band. That would be pretty interesting though if there were bands out there that wrote like that. And played awesome death metal of course.

I like demon hunter.

in general the concept doesn't bother me, religion in general gets on my nerves but I by no means think it shouldn't be allowed, If it were to bother me I just wouldn't listen to it.

I'm starting to dig Pro-Satan lyrics myself. Something about Satan as a character is just really fascinating. I'd say Light Bearer do a good job at making Satan something interesting. And you can't go wrong with Mercyful Fate!

I think it's fine in concept but in practice it is sometimes obnoxious. Mostly because it tends to dominate their lyrical content and becomes something that they have to announce - being a "christian band." That's pretty annoying because it doesn't actually describe what kind of band they are at all. Anyway, having all your songs being about religion is the same as if all your songs were about satan - you have to be really fucking good for it not to be dull.

Are all the 'fuck Christianity' people deliberately going out of their way to forget Trouble? 'Psalm 9' is one of the best thrashy doom metal albums ever.
