Christian Metal Album of the Year - Need Help w/ Album List!

Post by SpaceGuy on Tue Dec 27, 2016 10:59 pm

Hi everyone,

For the past 2 years, I've taken a poll for Christian Metal Album of the Year. Last year, we had a HUGE RESPONSE with over 600 votes cast.. The 2014 version had less than half of that.

Its with great hope that we can make it even bigger and better this year, but I need help getting all of the good albums on the master list now so I don't have to go in and update the list during the poll, in case I forget albums.

I generally have assembled the albums into a few categories, then a mixed "Album of the year" grouping, to ensure that sub-genres and all other albums are treated fairly.

The link to 2015 was here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1VfFJ91Q2DZC4CiVpIyZLfuOggH2xXxuIWDouvOUpbBA/edit

The categories are likely to be (unless there are too few albums to list):


  • All Metal Genres - Album of the Year
  • Metalcore Album of the Year
  • Hard Rock Album of the Year
  • Progressive, Symphonic, or Melodic Album of the Year
  • Heavy Metal or Thrash Album of the Year
  • Black, Death or Doom Album of the Year


I plan on compiling the list over the next 3-4 days, and start official voting by end of the week.

Also, last year I had a few radio stations ask about the list - if anyone wants access to the master document for votes/vote compilations, please let me know, as I am more than happy to work with anyone that's interested.



List of Albums Available for Voting:



Amos - Jade (Hard Rock)
Black Fate - Deliverance of Soul (Hard Rock)
Blood of the Martyrs - Endgame

<!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}-->


Let me know what else I'm missing, and I'll add it. Looks like we're up to about ~55 albums in 2016 thus far!

I wanna correct two things, I made this list awhile ago, and Saving Grace have not released their album yet, probably not till 2017

And two Slice The Cake is not really a Christian album because of some of its language other than that my list is pretty solid Thumbs up

Its the members of As I Lay Dying without Tim Lambesis, and with Oh, Sleeper's singer... Which is also a Christian band. Certainly, they're riding the edge of what'd be considered, I think.

Are you including EP's, singles, and such?  A few to add to the list:

Crimson Moonlight - Divine Darkness (black metal)
Hesychast - Ageless (black metal)
Orationem - Your Presence And Strength (black metal)

Most likely not. There have been insinuations from the day the band was announced in the fallout of the Tim Lambesis scandal that all of the members had renounced their faith by that point. Although those rumors were never explicitly confirmed, none of the band members spent any effort on denying them either.  In any official interviews I've found where the subject was brought up, they've just vaguely said that their beliefs are exclusively personal and that the band is only about the music rather than spreading any particular message. It's not my place to know the spiritual condition of any individuals, but the most I can say for Wovenwar as a band is that they might or might not have a couple of Christian members who keep quiet about their beliefs these days. They certainly aren't interested in having any kind of discernible Christian message.

Thanks for including my band, THE WORLD WILL BURN.  We will release our second album soon, so maybe we can be nominated for 2017 too.  When you get the final list let us know the link and we will let our fans know.  That should give us at least 3 votes! JK
