Greatest Christian Hard Rock Bands


The Contenders: Page 3

41 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.

One of the greatest bands I ever seen or heard, power full lyrics. If you haven't heard of them listen to them now. The song Reveries of flight have me goose bumps, the song The finisher talks about in the end God will put satan in his place "your whispers may sway the weak, but when I speak it roars the seas... The angels will sing to a world reborn they will sing as I cut off your horns, Ill cut off your horns. " They're amazing

42 Spoken

Spoken is SO good, and half these bands aren't hard rock..

Christian rock band from nagaland, india. Great band.

44 Tenth Avenue North
45 Whiteheart

Whiteheart emerged as one of the best Christian bands during the early Contemporary Christian Music era (late 70's to middle 90's). Their initial line up boasted of among the best Christian artists during that time - Dan Huff, Steve Green, Mark Greshmel among others. Can any of the artists among the top ten list above create clasics like "We Are His Hands", "Seventy Times Seven" and "The River Will Flow"?

White heart is nothing but the best (wink wink)

Great band seen then in concert years ago.

Highland was so great an Album I went out and bought it for a non Christian friend in a rock band knowing he would appreciate the sheer musical excellence of any of the songs on that CD. I don't believe any Christian hard rock CD can compare to that one honestly in its entirety.

46 The Protest

Great Christian Hard Rock Music!

47 Guardian

Am amazing band whose music sets on dancing apart from singing along. I especially love their song Revelation that ministers to me in a profound manner.

48 For Today For Today For Today is an American Christian metalcore band from Sioux City, Iowa, formed in 2005. They are currently signed to Nuclear Blast Records.
49 Theocracy Theocracy Theocracy is a Christian progressive power metal band founded in 2002 by Matt Smith of Athens, Georgia.

Come on people! Seriously?! Stryper, the very band that put Christian rock on the mainstream map, the very core of the genre ranked way down as if a side statement? Makes no sense. Then there's no mention of the best group out today which is Theocracy. Not only is their music far superior to any band mentioned here as the melody and harmonies are unlike any other, but their lyrics are deep... Deep rooted is Theocracy in theology! A Christian band should just be that - Christian. Theocracy has powerful lyrics and music to support it. With no argument or comparison, they are truly the genuine band out there and by far, and simply the best.

If you like European Power Progressive metal than this the band for you. Great Christian lyrics with talent to boot.

What the hell? This band should be #1! Why is it #65? seriously?

This band shouldn't be here!

Come on, really?

50 Righteous Vendetta
51 War of Ages

Although these guys drift into the heavy metal catagory, if you are looking for an edge to your music collection, these guys cut like a razor. "From Ashes" and "Lionheart" off Supreme Chaos are just a couple of great all around metal tunes worth listening to.

52 NeedToBreathe
53 Eternal Decision

The closest thing I've heard to early Metallica/Pantera. Seriously these guys rip and have powerful meanings in their words. Three albums (Risen, Ghost in the Machine, and E.D. I) each better than the last.

Surprised to find this band so far down on the list. These guys Rock!

54 Write This Down

This band is really hardcore, but have oh so relatable and true lyrics, with a lot of read between the lines and stuff. Great band

55 Fart

Not with that name

56 Jonah33
57 Repent

Nobody sounded like this band very well done music one of a kind sound, most Christian bands follow a sound or a fad repent never did.

58 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.

ABR should be top 5 at least. Empowering and meaningful lyrics, powerful screams, crafty drums, rhythmic guitar playing, and that China symbol... Wow

59 Faith 1

This is not a real band.

60 Third Day

These guys are not as good as red but they still deserve a good spot

Not a real hard rock band don't get me wrong great band love them but not hard rock this not the only band on these lists that are wrong hilsong not rock
These lists need to be revamped for Christian genre because just because there electic in Christian doesn't justify the title of rock so I'd kick hilsong and most of the band in the top rock bands not top three
