Christian Metal

Christian Metal is gospel music's hard rock. Not as hard as most heavy metal, it still has many of its trademarks, particularly loud guitars, bombastic riffs, long solos, and pseudo-operatic vocals. Christian metal falls between arena rock and pop-metal, though there are the occasional bands that are heavier. What ties them all together is their lyrical themes -- every band has inspirational and religious lyrics.
