My faves so far are definitely Saint and Barren Cross, although Barren Cross is way more inconsistent out of the two.

There too many great Christian Metal bands:

Barren Cross, Sacred Warrior, Soldier, Saint, Emerald, Recon, the pioneers Stryper ... (:D)

But I guess they all shall burn in Hell, because Heavy Metal breeds the Evil in our souls.
Amen.

I really dislike christian metal bands, BUT there is ONE exception. The debut BELIEVER album "Extraction From Mortality" is an excellent album. But just about every other "white metal" band sucks to my ears.

May I know why you dislike them? Is it because of their lyrical themes or imagery that you find cheesy? How about Warlord, Glacier, Saint, Tyrant, Bloodgood, Creed (from Germany), Mad Max, and so on? There's much more to "white metal" than just Stryper, haha.

Personally, I enjoy any band that simply makes great music, regardless of religious or political ideologies.

I think Stryper is underrated.
I know the costumes were silly, add some christian stuffs to metal is stupid idea.
But did you ever see Michael Sweet's performance? those solos, and singing...
It isn't as easy as it looks.
I mean if you do both.

Christian metal? No no no ....
Metal should be angry, brutal, aggressive and worship Satan and beer ;)
But I agree, the first album of Believer is great!

I saw an early nod to Oracle! Thank you very much!!

Some of my faves would be Tourniquet (first 4 albums), Believer, Deliverance, Saint, very early Bride, very early Bloodgood, Barren Cross, and Stryper (Michael Sweet is an amazing singer).

I also have to state, Trouble and Solitude Aeturnus were never, ever "Christian Metal" or "White Metal" bands. They both used biblical imagery, but in no way endorsed people's conversion to Christianity...that is the main criteria for a band being truly a Christian/White Metal band.

Metal Blade coined the term "white metal" to market Trouble since they had biblical imagery in the lyrics and were sort of the "opposite" of Slayer (Slayer was fast and "satanic/black", Trouble was slower & "white metal")...it was all a marketing gimmick.

Only after Trouble removed the biblical imagery did Bruce Franklin become a Christian himself.

I certainly don't want to get into a heated debate on religion, but I've always found the idea of Christian "metal" or any other type of Christian hardcore music, somewhat...ironic? Paradoxical? Hypocritical?

I mean...there are an insanely large amount of different Christian sects and doctrines that people choose and choose not to follow, but certainly one of the general themes is that the praise and worship of God and Jesus is to be the sole purpose of creating the music. Heck, some churches refuse to even allow worship or praise with band instruments because they believe it is too "gimmicky" and distracting away from God/Jesus and the reason they are there in the first place.

Regardless, I do like some Christian bands, especially when their songs have vague messages that don't implicitly make me vomit ;)

My favorite Christian bands: Vengeance Rising, Deliverance, Saint, Barren Cross, Neon Cross, Azorrague, Early Living Sacrifice, Old Mortification, Deracination, Hating Evil and others!

I like metal, regardless of lyrical addressed. Here in Brazil, the Christian Metal is hated, you can not even tell you hear Christian bands that people start to hating you, amazing!! I do not care, after all, radical "meddlesome" the libertarian has a lot!!
