Unique themes/lyrics of Christian hard rock/metal....

Post by Soldier777 on Sat May 14, 2016 5:19 pm

That are some lyrics/themes in Christian hard rock and metal that aren't often written about? Two songs come to mind:

Saint: Island Prisoner - written about John's exile on the Island of Patmos and his visions.

Theocracy: Nailed - writen about Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation.

Are there any others?

I might be able to think of more later, but the one the immediately popped into my mind was Nietzsche's Madness by Living Sacrifice. The lyrics are a rebuttal of Nietzsche's infamous parable that were inspired after Bruce had been reading Ravi Zacharias.

Pantokrator - Where Lilith Found Her Peace (written about the scapegoat ritual on the Day of Atonement and tying it to the Book of Enoch and Christ)

The Slave Eye* - Black Stone Idol (proclamation of evil and falsehood against the gods of Arabia)

* - they have not announced themselves as a 'Christian' band but they include 2 members from Renascent, a well-known Christian melodic/symphonic black/death metal band.

A Nietzsche theme by a christian metal band? Too bad I can't stand the music that LS makes for more than 5 seconds (of vocals)...

Bride - Why Won't He Break - about persecution of Christians

Neon Cross - Buy My Record - shameless self-promotion by musical artists

Rez - Lincoln's Train - the Civil War

Novella - Do We Just Surrender - environmentalism...certainly unusual in Christian rock/metal

On my new blues album, I am doing a song about a little girl who was severely abused as a child.  I am doing another on rape.  There will also be a song lamenting having to stand in line at Walmart.  That's a broad range for a Christian album.

Child abuse, rape and waiting in line in Walmart do have some similarity though...
