Anyone know any current or old Christian bands with the NWOBHM sound?

I'm not too familiar with the many older bands that play this style (like Saint, Bloodgood, Barren Cross, etc.) so I'll let someone else make recommendations in that direction, but there are a few pretty good ones that are more new to the scene that I enjoy.

I really enjoy Sardis.  At their core, they're classic heavy metal with a slight retro feel, though they also mix elements of thrash, death, and power metal.  Their singer is a member here though hasn't come around for a little while.

I also highly recommend Wytch Hazel.  While they're not a "Christian band," the singer and primary songwriter is a Christian and the lyrics are blatantly so.

Four Star Revival has some good tunes too.  Their bassist is a member here.

Armageddon's album Money Mask, Messiah Prophet Band's Master of the Metal and Neon Cross's self titled would fit the bill.

I also came across a band called True Strength is anyone hasnt heard of them. They have a little Judas Priest vibe to me but the vocals are no where near Halford level

Yeah, I have heard about True Strength. The vocals totally ruined their sound, in my opinion. I lost interest in this band after hearing some samples.
Before they release their first album, they announced Ski would be doing the vocals for the band. He is an amazing singer, but sadly he declined before recording.

If you enjoy Halford's vocals, I would certainly reccomend Saint. Great band, with Priest vibe and great singer, as well.

I can also reccomend Bloodgood (for fans of Stryper) and Sacred Warrior (for fans of Maiden, Queensryche).

Great bands with agressive sound and powerfull christian lyrics.

Vocalist sounds like Ted Pilot of Fifth Angel.  Very good NWOBHM band that's, wow *gasp*, actually from Britain.

Then, I would suggest leviticus, even though it's more like hard rock...

Disappointed no one has mentioned Warlord! An acclaimed US band with the NWOBHM sound.

While not strictly speaking a Christian band back in the 80s, their new albums have been officially canonized as Christian metal. Of course, the best is their debut EP "Deliver Us". The title track is certainly inspired by Christianity, the Lord's Prayer, etc.



Again, not sure exactly what changed, but their new albums are more clearly Christian metal, like the following The Holy Empire:

Just posted in the other thread about Chaotic Resemblance, but they are current and active. They have a Crue/Poison sound and are blatantly Christian. Great guys too!

Warlord is one of my absolute favorite bands.

Would Valor, Zaxas, XINR, or Apostle count?

I wouldn't call Apostle that.  While maybe in that vein, they wouldn't be classified as such because they were from Florida.  The whole concept of the NWOBHM is British Heavy Metal.  I know--many non-British bands got leaped into this category because of how they sounded.  However, the early movement was all about bands coming out of England.

Bands should only be categorized by how they sound, not what geographic region they are from.

Are Death, Savatage, and Crimson Glory "southern metal" bands?  They are from the US South.

NWOBHM is one of those weird period/geographic location genres, but mothy clarified he's looking for the "NWOBHM sound." I don't think any Christian NWOBHM exists if we're being so strict as wanting a British band from the early 80s.
