Hi my name is Matthew. I am 32, married to beautiful woman named Maria, and an owner of three rambunctious dogs. I have been listening to Christian metal since 1997. My favorite styles are (un)black metal and death metal. I am also a huge sports fan.

Bummer man, dogs are great!

I  currently live in Utah, but am planning on moving to Washington state in a few years. Spokane to be precise.

I'm a Libertarian, and I lean Left.

I love Jesus! He is my savior! I am a non-denominational/New Thought Christian.

I have two kids who mean the world to me!!!

-My name is Adam, age 41.
-Married for 19 years.
-Known Jesus for 36 years.
-Have 8 children here and 3 with the Lord.
-Former church pastor and street evangelist.
-I work as tech support for an internet provider.
-I'm blessed enough to work from home and have done so since 2009.
-We have a dog named Jarvis. He is a chiweenie and is about 1 year old.
-For hobbies, I'm an amateur archivist and am always busy updating the database at Discogs. So far, in just the last 4 years, I've submitted almost 3,000 unique releases and uploaded over 18,000 images http://www.discogs.com/user/Adambassador

My life has been filled with primarily music from the Christian market and classical. Started out as a child with Christian contemporary like Steve Green, Sandi Patty, Don Francisco and Larnelle Harris.

As a teen, I started dabbling in rock like Petra, Whiteheart and Mylon Lefevre and Broken Heart. Keep in mind, this was forbidden in my home because my parents were tied to a Christian cult led by Bill Gothard. So, all this kind of music I sneaked into the home and kept hidden. That was very difficult.

I then started finding metal and moved into groups like Vengeance, Deliverance and Tourniquet. I was in heaven!!! But, as usual, still with the sneaking of music and sneaking out to concerts.

I also began to branch out into alternative, punk and industrial and found such amazing groups. I should start making more threads about them here in the forums.

11razorwire has arrived

Post by 11razorwire on Mon Jan 11, 2016 4:38 pm

Hey!!! My name is Mark and I found this awesome forum once my metal buddy decided he didn't really want to talk about hard rock and metal as much and, dude, I need an outlet. So I typed hard rock heavy metal forums into a search engine and...here I am!

I'm 46, live in beautiful Myrtle Beach SC, am married, 3 kids and am a Bible-believing, unashamed Christian who just happens to like loud music. Any type of hard rock or heavy metal, that isn't satanic, I listen to. I also love conversing about it, new bands, new albums, old stuff, tours, concerts, rumors and whatever else. So, if this forum has a type of direct messaging, feel free to chat with me that way.

My current favorites include Megadeth, Judas Priest, Ratt, Havok, Avatar, In This Moment, Butcher Babies, Motley Crue, Beartooth, Hammerfall, Antestor, Aerosmith, Kix, Krypteria, Iron Maiden, Nightwish, Rancid, Alice Cooper, Nirvana, The Pretty Reckless...man, I could go on for another hour so I'll stop.

So glad to find such a cool forum. And with that, I'm off to start posting...and where better to begin than with my favorite band at the Megadeth Dystopia thread. Rock on!!!

Copying RW:

Name: Mike (and I live in Fla {Florida})

I'm 44, 3 kids, 22, 14 and 6. Married 21 years.

Favorite Musical Genres: Classic Rock, 80's music, just about anything that isn't nu metal, country or rap. When it comes to Christian music I only enjoy 80's Christian Metal or music that sounds like that era. I am not very interested in new music at all unless it is something that sounds classic. 

Born in Pontiac, Michigan, moved to Knoxville, TN when I was 10. Consider Knoxville home now. Graduated from The University of Tennessee (wife did too, we met at UT) and we are VOL Fans. Moved to Florida in 2000. 

I first got into rock and metal thru my older brothers (I am the youngest of 5). I was exposed to Hendrix, Zeppelin, The Who, Pink Floyd, Bad Company and the like at a very early age when all of that stuff was somewhat still considered new (and Jimi was releasing albums in the mid 70's after his death). As time went on I discovered Judas Priest, Maiden and all types of hair metal... Love it all, discovered Stryper's Reason For The Season EP vinyl around Christmas of 85 or so. Hooked on them ever since and started looking for more bands like that. Found Saint, Messiah Prophet, Bloodgood, etc. Pretty much everyone on Pure Metal Records or Intense.

Favorite band: Styx

Favorite Food: Depends but today I would say Mexican, maybe Chinese tomorrow. Always depends.

I'm a Democrat, and yes I am Christian (there is such a thing as a Christian Democrat I am surrounded by them at work and at home). 

I love Jesus! He is my savior! I am a Methodist but grew up in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church

Hobbies: Vinyl records, outdoors, camping and hiking (which I haven't had time to do in ages and haven't hiked since moving out of the Smoky Mountains).

I used to be a DJ in Classic Rock Radio. Started in Christian Radio in 1989 then in 1991 went to a Top 40 station. 1995 got hired by a country station when I graduated from UT. Moved again in 1997 to Missouri and worked at a Classic Rocker. Moved in 2000 to Panama City, FL to take over programming duties at a Classic Rock station. "Retired" from radio in 2005 and now work as a Chemist in a lab at a paper mill. Totally burned out on radio in 2005 and haven't even listened to it since. I hate terrestrial radio.

Here we are last winter at Ralphie's House in Cleveland, OH.



And here we are at Hoover Dam last summer during our cross country road trip:




Edit: Oh yeah, I have been here a long time. Was on Firestream then when that forum changed (I think to a gaming forum) I went to the CMR. CMR was hacked and then I came to this version. So I have been around for a while.

As Spock would say "fascinating". Because it really takes guts to approach strangers and profess your faith, I just don't think I have the talent for such things (or even approaching strangers about anything). 

I will say this: I can speak to a crowd of over 8,000 people. But I have trouble talking to one or two that I do not know. Strange I know, but in the radio business I had chances to introduce bands and appear on stage. That was never a problem and I have never had a problem talking about Jesus in front of large groups. But give me less than 5 people and I will clam up. 

Oh, and I love discogs, such a cool site but I do not have all of my stuff listed.

I've learned it takes even more guts to approach a brother about sin or to be approached by a brother about sin. That's where Christian living gets real.

And regarding Discogs, if you ever need any help, just ask. I'd like to friend you there. Could you post your username or send it to me in a private message?

Nope, no official connection to Firestream though a lot of folks here are/were involved in one way or another.

Would we recognize any of the bands you've played in?  What style?

No I wish my band would have had that kind of recognition haha! We played southern metal with old school hardcore influences. We just played local shows in our hometown. It was a blast. And isn't that all that matters, right? haha

Copying RW:

Name: Aaron

I'm 41, 1 Child almost 11 months, Married for 2 years

Favorite Musical Genres: Depends on my mood, Some of my favorite artists are, David Bowie, Scott Weiland, Pink Floyd, Foo Fighters, Metric, Megadeth, Deliverance, The Violet Burning, Queen.

Born in New London, Connecticut, have lived in Connecticut for most of my life minus a 2 month stint in Seattle, WA and a 5 year stint in Murfreesboro, TN, I got divorced in 2011, marriage was falling apart and turns out my ex wife was cheating on me. Remarried in 2013 after meeting my wife just 10 months after moving back to CT. Our child was born in March 2015, we also have 3 dogs. 2 beagles and a 1 lab/terrier/husky mix who I named Bowie.

I got into Christian Metal in the 80s with my cousin introducing me to Stryper. Soldiers Under Command, To Hell With the Devil, and Yellow & Black Attack was my gateway. Soon I found bands like Vengence Rising, Sacrament, Deliverance, Tourniquet, Sacred Warrior, Holy Soldier, Bloodgood the list goes on. In the 90s when it appeared the market was dying out I lost most interest in Christian Metal.  I moved on to different kinds of music. I listen to a broad range of music.

Favorite band: David Bowie

Favorite Food: Depends on my mood but Im always in the mood for Seafood like Scallops, Calamari, Fish, Clam Strips, Whole Bellys, Lobster, Crab, etc.

I guess I am a Libertarian at least according to the quiz i took online Smile

I love Jesus! He is my savior! I go to a Non Denominational Church in New London called Tree of Life Christian Fellowship  www.tolcf.org (I'm their webmaster)

Hobbies: Reading, Designing Websites, Video Games like Star Wars the Old Republic, and Star Wars Galaxies on a EMU, Writing, Watching TV, Going on adventures

I had a Show on Intense Radio for a short time in 2006. The Dreamland Cafe where I played Indie Christian Metal, and anything that struck my fancy.  Ive always wanted to start a Internet Radio Station with my Pastor that would provide a variety of things such as talk shows discussing music, music, themed music shows. Maybe one day I also dream of taking another Disney Cruise with my family Smile

OK, just joined this site today. About me? I'm a preacher working in welding supplies. I find that, as a Christian, not only is it hard to find people to talk about music with, but say your into metal and they think your crazy, weird, worldly/unsaved or the Devil himself! lol I googled Christian metal forums, yesterday I think, found this place and one other. Both seemed cool with cool people but this one was more active so I got to reading some threads and decided to join. I'm 38, single and love metal! Every style from glam to death; or as I like to say, "Everything from Stryper to Impending Doom". My favorite bands are Demon Hunter, For Today, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Leaves' Eyes and Opeth. I look forward to hanging out and talking to you all. UP THE IRONS!!!

Hey fellow Christian Metal fan! Glad you found us! I have found that there are some incredible people here! Great taste in music!

I'm also a huge fan of Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath and Leaves' Eyes! Not to mention Stryper! Hope you stick around!!! There are times when this place seems to slow down ... but please just be patient and it will pick back up! When I first joined it seemed practically dead. Not anymore, so that's cool!

Since I occasionally visited this forum because it came up in the search results in Google (you know, background check on bands etc.), I thought it might be nice to join. Another reason is that I'm getting tired of discussing christian topics online with non-christians. It turns out that in many cases, people prefer to remain ignorant (despite calling themselves "critical", "skeptical" and whatnot). Would be nice to occasionally visit a place online with less hostility to my beliefs.

Anyway, about myself. My name is André, I'm 26 years old and I'm a Dutchman living in Germany (in Potsdam, near Berlin). I followed my wife here because she'll be doing a PhD at the Max Planck Institute. I still have to finish my study in Dutch law, but I will do so with a twist: my thesis will compare Dutch and German copyright law.
We have two dogs, we bought them from the animal shelter when we were married for one year.

I finally came to get to know the Lord at the age of 21, after a lifetime of believing that everything we say and do is flawed at least. Something I still can't deny, but before that time it stopped me from asking the Lord for help. Because, what's the use of asking the Lord for help when even this asking is flawed? A horrible and satanic trap that still alot of Dutch reformed christians find themselves in. Luckily, God is stronger than that (somehow He always is, very comforting!).

On the subject of music, I'm heavily into heavy/power/prog metal. Also prog rock can do it for me; occasionally I even listen to classical and Scottish/Irish folk. It wasn't before the tender age of 18 before I seriously got into metal though. (The whole Rammstein/Metallica/Apocalyptica phase before that doesn't really count Wink)  and since my conversion I'm also into music with a christian message.

Lastly (for now!), I'm really into exploring the Bible and its cohesion. Additionally I like to read theological and philosophical books etc. Other hobbies include playing football (Americans call it "soccer" Wink ) and playing older video games (right now Yuri's Revenge and Fifa 08).

Looking forward to spending some more time on this forum!

Warm regards,
André

Hi all!

I'm a 21 year old from England! I am currently working as a intern for a church doing pastoral ministry.

I started out on bands like Papa Roach, three days grace, Disturbed etc from the age of around 10, I became a Christian at 13 and started to listen to a lot of Kutless, Skillet, Red, Pillar those kind of bands but as I started listening to more music and did a lot of searching myself, I got into heavier stuff, first metalcore (so stuff like demon hunter) which progressed more into heavy/thrash/speed metal. I love pretty much every form of rock and metal however and still regulary listen to Papa Roach as well as much heavier bands.
I have recently got a lot more into power metal, most particulary; theocracy.

I also love sport; cricket, handball and football (not the American variety Wink ), I enjoy running but injured my knee so can't do much at the moment Sad Still, good excuse to sit on the sofa and watch the olympics Razz .


Nice to meet y'all Very Happy
