There's some debate whether Astral Doors are Christian, they cover social topics including the sex abuse scandal on the Catholic Church.  They've definately got a Dio vibe going on.  I can't post a link due to restrictions but check out the song Raise the Bones or Evil is Forever.

Welcome zinescene!

I'm not too familiar with that band, though upon a brief look at their lyrics, I'm thinking it's pretty safe to say that they are not a Christian band.

Astral Doors - God Is The Devil wrote:God is the Devil and the Devil is God
Pray for tomorrow's children
Jesus is Satan and Satan is here
God is the Devil and the Devil is God

They definitely have quite a bit of religious-themed lyrics, though with songs like the above or Disciples Of The Dragon Lord or The Last Temptation Of Christ, I'm curious where the debate comes from?

This quote was taken from their latest album and I think is a metaphor and not literal.  Trying to confirm that but don't seem to find many topics on the song lyrics.  Their albums tend to cover many controversial themes and on this one Child abuse seems to be at the forefront of the conversation.  I think the perception was they were a religious band at one point because of the topics but I think the general consensus is they are a metal band that delve into religious topics.  Can't deny the RJD influence though.  That is very prevalent through out their CD's.

Astral Doors is one of the closest things to Dio. But from what I've heard of their songs over the years, I've never pegged them as Christian as the original poster was asking for. Diviner is band that has lyrics that seem to lean in a Christian direction and are on a label that supports Christian bands.

I don't know if anyone is still following this, but I don't think anyone has mentioned the Greek band Diviner.  Trust me, this is THE answer to this question.  Two or three songs in any you'll be convinced of the Dio comparison (mostly in the voices, but some of the music as well).

Whopps--I didn't see this until after I posted!  Oh well, just say I concur!
