The Top Ten

August Burns Red
Man, this band is the most openly christian band in this whole world. They even shout the name of Jesus, God, Holy Spirit, or they even pray for the crowds after their concerts and they would even cheer me up. As I Lay Dying just plays christian music that's all. They are not too open. But abr is.
They inspires me so much every time I see them. They give you so many positive messages and give you hope. My emo friend got over his troubles after listening to the song "Composure" and "Meddler". Abr can change so many people's lives. If abr is reading this, I wanna tell thank you so much for giving me stronger faith and changing my friend
They are so good! Their lyrics are deep and meaningful, they have the best drummer ever, and they love Jesus. Also they have some of the most technical songs ever! Go abr.

2As I Lay Dying
I don't know how to say how much this band influenced my life in good way. Their music is so inspiring to better yourself, and it helps you to find out your way in life. After listening of As I Lay Dying and Still Remains I have become better person and it helps me to feel closer to God
All the memebers here have great christian faith, and the power of G*d. God bless you all! :D.
Actually, TDWP and ABR are really awesome too but I like this band better
One of the first Christian metalcore bnds I heard and still my favorite... Awesome powr with great screamo but good harmonies.

3The Devil Wears Prada
Clearly the best. Dead Thrpne puts them on top if Zombies or With Roots Above and Branches Bellow didn't.
I don't really listen to any Christian bands other than The Devil Wears Prada and I only actually listen to them because of A Day To Remember, but, yeah, THEY'RE AWESOME!
I Love The DEvil Wears Prada.! They Are Really Awesome.

Probably THE most well known Christian metalcore band out there and for good reason! Had one of the most talented clean vocalists in the Metalcore Scene and has well written songs, music and lyrics wise!
Come on! It's Underoath. Even though they aren't necessarily a Christian band right now, they've made plenty of songs during their time.
These guys were one of my first Metalcore bands other than Demon Hunter and I still love them to this day!

5Haste the Day
Haste the Day -When everything Falls.. I think its #1myself.. Although the others are nice also this is my favorite band although I did not think it was a Christian band when I first herd it.
Truly an epic band.I listened to every one of there albums for months at a time before I eventually settled on Dreamer and Pressure The Hinges.
I love this band!
My personal favorite, and I'm not even religous. Straight athiest

6Oh, Sleeper
This band is definitely my favorite metalcore bands out there. Every one of their songs has a deeper meaning behind them. Like son of the morning and the finisher. At first I didn't get either of the songs songs until I looked it up and it blew me away. I am so proud of this band I can tell you listen to any one of theirs songs and you will like it! Check me out they are sick!
Love this band, Children of Fire is one song you must hear before you die

7For Today
Amazing musically, and amazing lyrically. They always challenge me in my walk with God, and their music is always encouraging, and always uplifting the Lord. They are the best.
One of the best Christian Metalcore bands I've ever heard before. I saw them in concert and the lead vocalist preached out to the fans. It was a great experience.
FOR TODAY IS THE BEST! They are the total package, spiritually, lyrically, and musically! They are the definition of "heavy worship"!
