Founded in 2000 by vocalist Tim Lambesis, the establishment of the band's first full lineup, which included drummer Jordan Mancino, occurred in 2001.

I love their songs, their amazing! But its true, its not the same without Lacey

I truly think they are amazing! They really did save my life. It's not the same without Lacey but Lacey has gone solo and I can't wait to here m

Awesome band saved my life so many times I've Ben through so much and they got me through the worst I love yall wish yall still had lacey though

8 Paramore Paramore Paramore is an American rock band from Franklin, Tennessee, formed in 2004. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Hayley Williams and guitarist Taylor York.

If Paramore weren't already amazing enough, the fact that ALL the members of Paramore (Hayley, Jeremy, Taylor) are Christians, makes them even more amazing! In a few of their songs you can here little hints of their faith, without cramming Christianity down your throat, which I really appreciate. Paramore has helped me through a lot and still does, and even saved my life. This band is truly amazing and a strong inspiration to me!

Many people say that the changes they've made are a result of them leaving their faith, but that's not true! The member of Paramore are still devout Christians! Hayley Williams has a cross tattooed on her inner thigh for crying out loud! LOVE. THIS. BAND.

Paramore is my 3rd favorite band, the fact that they are Christians and they are influenced by their Christianity makes me relate to them even more, which makes me love them even more!

Best. Band. In the world!

10 August Burns Red August Burns Red August Burns Red is an American metalcore band from Manheim, Pennsylvania. Formed in 2003, the group began their first performances while a majority of the members were attending their senior year of high school, and soon began playing shows around Lancaster, before being signed to CI Records. Afterwards, more.

These guys are my favorite band and have been since Sophomore year of high school (I'm a Sophomore in college now) and they've gotten me through so much before I knew Christ and after I came to Christ. Not only can I bang my head, but worship while I do it too!

They are the best of the best with really cool lyrics. Number one in my opinion. Back burner, Empire and so many more

The Contenders

I tried out most of these bands posted and there good but for today should be on top of the list.

Anyone know FT? Hands down most faith based metal band out there..they actually go all out and preach gods word on stage, seriously I look up them

20 Manafest Manafest Christopher Scott Greenwood, better known by his stage name Manafest, is a Canadian Christian rapper and rock artist from Pickering, Ontario.

Tons of memorable songs from each album. One of the best white hip-hop rock musicians out there.

Manafest is one of my favorites!

28 Onward To Olympas
29 Subseven
30 Icon For Hire

These guys are absolutely devoted to their religion, their fans, and their music.

As for their first two albums, definitely. One of my favorite bands :) But watch out for their newer stuff, the used to be Christian but now... Not so much. Dropping the F-bomb and stuff, it's just stupid.

31 Oh, Sleeper Oh, Sleeper Oh, Sleeper is an American Christian metalcore band from Fort Worth, Texas. Previously signed to Solid State Records they are currently operating independently.

Ok don't get me wrong all these bands are great I have most (not all) of the bands on my ipod but I'm so surprised that no one said these guys, literally on of the other bands (for today) said they were the most faith based metal band well there is hands down no one beats this band... imean don't get me wrong all of these are good and I'm not saying that for today isn't faithful... all I'm saying is that oh sleeper has them beat by a long shot

Best screamo band! But they haven't come out with a new album in forever. I want to hear more!

That's like half of a pentagram on the bottom. Don't think this is Christian.
