i think this shouldn't be done. it will be awkward though i know some bands are friends of mine. i don't know what will happen to their souls. :(

If the words and spirit of the music are not sacriligious, why does it matter? I don't understand why you would think there was an issue with redemption about music beats...

It's blasphemy man, you don't have to experiment with combining different genres to be cool or something. And the way i look at it, these bands are proud to be "Christians" but their lifestyle isn't what they seem to be. their dresses are all black, etc... if you'd look at them it's just like you're looking at an anti-Christ. I know what they're trying to show or prove, and i don't think it's a good idea that they'd push it through. Don't be a hypocrite.

i think that's hypocrisy. come to think of it, are songs all about lyrics? isn't it that the melody also speaks for itself? you said that it doesn't matter as long as the spirit of the music isn't sacrilegious. well let me tell you this, metal music is an expression of anger that's why it sounds that way. imagine yourself proposing to the girl of your dreams through a song with heartfelt emotional lyrics of how much you love her but accompanied by distorted guitars, double pedals and a lot of screaming, do you think it shows how you truly feel about her? my point here is, if you want to sing songs of worship, do it in the right way and not use some other genre to look "cool". i'm a fan of metal music but using it that way, i think that's just plainly stupid.

i seriously dont think it matters, as long as the words are honouring to God. if this is the type of music they play and it will bring others to Christ, why not?

yeah but what i'm worried about is that what if Christ would come down before them while they were playing, are they going to scream in front of him? and their way of living doesn't go along with what they try to show. :)

Zipdez hi no no that would not be good and it seems blasphemous to me. how can Christian lyrics fit into that trashy clashy music, that is beyond me.I know I would not want to listen to metal music no matter what lyrics there were. I detest metal music.
