Christian Black Metal

Recommended Posts

Re: Christian Black Metal They recently shifted their lineup around when the vocalist quit. I was pretty impressed that they did it so seamlessly. One of the guitarists moved to vocals, and then his brother took over his spot, and they were as good as ever live.

Re: Christian Black Metal

I think it's called white metal, not unblack metal? Not too sure about the terms tho. Both sound silly. "White metal" makes me think of white power and such stuff. It might sound stupid, Christian bm, but I kind of understand. Believing wouldn't make me stop listening or to the music, not all of it is about worshiping satan etc. Of course there is lots of people who do get offended, but they're not the ones listening. Let's not forget that all Christians aren't narrowminded and getting hurt by everything that's against the bible, I've met truly religious people who've had the humor it takes to listen to the music they like no matter what its message is - as long as the music is good and they're smart enough to realize they're not being brainwashed.

Re: Christian Black Metal I have nothing against christians I'd like to stress that fact as (not here to date) some of the views I have expressed on the subject of religion have sparked enourmous arguments, but in most of my experiences they tend to be closed minded and very much ignorant of what is going on around them, some are not this way but based on my experiences I can understand why there seems to be a large amount of negative stigma surrounding them

It is called unblack metal...apparently Horde (an Australian band) introduced the term holy unblack metal. Now this is from Wikipedia, so perhaps the history is wrong, but Horde was one of the founding unblack bands.

Re: Christian Black Metal The title of Horde's album is Hellig Usvart, which translates to "Holy Unblack", so I would assume that you're correct. It's not a bad album, but it seems like it's trying too hard in places and the songwriting is really uneven. It's sort of like an amalgamation of various Norwegian BM band's sounds, instead of using black metal as the vessel to create what he was intending to.

Re: Christian Black Metal this is true as well I just seem to attract criticism from all directions when I'm around people, some christian dude tried to tell me I was going to hell for liking Judas Priest, some other guy said I didn't know real metal because I was wearing a Slayer shirt, I just can't win

Re: Christian Black Metal and it's not like the shirt had an offensive slogan or anything, I just don't get it, then again I also don't get how someone could based solely on the fact that I was wearing a Slayer shirt say I don't know metal still I had a great reply for that one which was "I don't know real metal? mate you're wearing a freakin' nine inch nails shirt"

:lol: You won there. One thing that's irritating me t-shirt wise is that Mystic Prophecy's shirts really aren't that great...

Re: Christian Black Metal People of all creeds and religions can be closed minded if they choose to be. The problem with most religions (or religious non-religions like "practicing" atheists) is that they are banded together with a group of people who are being told either by a spiritual leader, or by each other, that they are right and others are wrong. This usually helps foster the closed-mindedness that Murph is referring to, and is actually an indiscriminately human trait, applying to many other interests that people may have, though religion seems to be the one that people get the most worked up about. I think this has something to do with the sense of security that most people receive from "knowing" what will (or won't) happen when they die, and when people try to challenge them on the premise that keeps them safe from one of man's greatest fears, that of his own mortality, people become easily offended. I don't know what the answer is, I only know what I personally think and believe, but even if you were right, I can't imagine that being closed off completely to everything/everyone else could be in any way helpful to you.

Re: Christian Black Metal totally agree there, even though I don't believe in God I can understand why people would and the christian message of kindness and compassion for your fellow man is certainly something to aspire to, that being said the other message I seem to pick up on is that one must repress their natural desires lest they become "tainted" by the "evils" of this world and that's not a good message, I think most cultures have something to offer us so walking through this world with your eyes closed, your hands over your ears saying LALALALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU LALALALALA like some people tend to do is foolish and this is true of non-believers perhaps more so then believers

Christian Black Metal Yep, unfortunately I have listened to this genre. I guess that the majority of people listening to this genre are most likely religious people that embrace Christianity. So it is likely that these people oppose in black,death and thrash metal. Can they call themselves metalheads by rejecting the major genres of extreme metal? As an Atheist and a MetalHead, I really hate this genre, Firstly because they play Black Metal music, with the exact opposite lyrics, which means that they are exploiting a genre with a certain history in the Metal Culture. Secondly they use Black Metal to spread Christian Propaganda. For me, this genre should have never existed!

Re: Christian Black Metal I would not go so far as to say that Christian metalheads are opposed to black deat or thrash as a whole, perhaps some are but I know of a devoted christian on here who loves tech-death and another who loves thrash, every metalhead has their own tastes and that's fine, it's what makes our music so powerful because no two people will have the same exact tastes

Re: Christian Black Metal oh great just discredit me entirely lol, just don't become one of the douchebag atheists who thinks religion has nothing to offer, most of it is bs I'll agree with that but there are some good aspects, as I said earlier all cultures and religions have something to offer even if they are predominantly detrimental to the human race

Christian Black Metal In my opinion religion provides some kind of spiritual empowerment, to believe that you are being protected and that your prayers will sometime be answered, gives your psychology a boost. Religion as a whole helps you in hard and desperate moments. But as I said, it's spiritual only. The thought that you will overcome your problems by prayer makes you actually overcome them on your own. I acknowledge the power of religion. I just don't accept it.

Religion is a system created by one person or one group to solidify their views on divinity, spirituality is your own personal connection with whatever you believe is out there, i.e. god, gods, nature, the universe (pantheism), etc... My main problem with religion is that it attempts to take something that nobody can clearly define or objectify and put it into a box with borders in this reality which anything not of this world would obviously not be bound by. Nobody has the market cornered on god, personally I think it's about individual spirituality and your connection with the metaphysical, and trying to make something personal like that uniform for everyone else when everyone is completely different doesn't make any sense to me.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
