Top 10 Heavy Metal Bands That Are Not SatanicA lot of heavy metal bands get accused of being satanic by ignorant closed minded people. Heavy Metal is not satanic. Screaming and loud instruments do NOT equal to satanism. A lot of these bands on this list have never killed anybody, nor do they condone or encourage bad behavior in their fans. They're normal people like you and me. There's actually Christian Metal believe it or not. Now that's very satanic indeed right? WRONG!
My point is that you people should stop viewing Metal as a tool of Satan and that it's a terrible influence on society. You don't have to like Metal, just don't go around saying that all Metal is satanic.
If you want an actual satanic band, I recommend you check out Gorgoroth. Now that's a satanic band.
Anyway, here are the top 10 Heavy Metal bands that are NOT satanic.
The Top Ten
Metallica was NEVER satanic.
If you do your research on Metallica properly they worship the Illuminati so there for they are demonic I should say - Masterdonny
Their songs are mainly about life, failure, social, love/relationship etc. they didn't wrote satanic stuffs - zxm3 Comments
To the guy who says that they aren't satanic, read their actual lyrics and DO YOUR RESEARCH moron. I could break down the meaning of every single Iron Maiden song from 1980-1992 for you and can explain much of Bruce Dickinson's solo albums as well. While they aren't a satanic band, Bruce has gone from being a deist to more of an agnostic since rejoining Iron Maiden back in 1999 and his lyrics have gone progressively downhill since then. It should said that although he isn't a satanist, Dickinson does have a fascination with the occult. You can hear such on his solo albums The Chemical Wedding, Accident of Birth, and Tyranny of Souls as well as the Iron Maiden albums Piece of Mind and Seventh Son of a Seventh Son. However he doesn't worship the devil and never has as far as I know. He has even had a few almost pro-Christian songs and all members of his solo band from 1997-99 wore crosses. Steve Harris, who writes most of the groups lyrics seems to have Christian roots if nothing else. ...more
Do your research on iron maiden very demonic and satanic inspired, I just looked them up and one of there album arts has triple six on it now that's Satanic don't say they are not satanic till you know what they sing about - Masterdonny
Despite the popular stereotype, most of the metal bands aren't satanic. Black metal bands are satanic but even among them there are bands that play black metal music but lyrics aren't satanic. - Metal_Treasure
Some may confuse with their covers, but Bruce admitted that they are not a satanic band - zxm
Some of these commenters are mentally ill it would seem. The list clearly says NOT satanic. Idiots.
The only satanic song they had was The Conjuring. Since Dave became a Christian, he stopped playing that song during concerts. Now, Megadeth are not satanic.
Even if "Prince Of darkness" is about Satan, Satan is portrayed as a negative, abominable figure in that song, who has caused many wars, deaths, and atrocities.
Do Dave mustaine just became a born-again Christian not too long ago the song was pretty much the truth people create their own demise nobody holds a gun to your head and tells you to go worship the devil get out of here - Steve420
The band was first named "Lucifer's Heritage" but they specifically changed it to prevent any reference to satanism and pull away from the Black Metal scene. So no, definitely not satanic.
Don't know much about power metal. But I've listened quite a lot power metal songs. And so far the lyrics are based on fantasy. So its obvious that most of the power metal bands AREN'T satanic. - zxm
From what I read that, they never wanted to be a satanic band - zxm
Chuck never even wrote satanic lyrics to begin with. He opposed satanism.
Chuck schuldiner is Jewish
Yes... Death is not satanic... Chuck is Jew!
Slayer, Iron maiden, Metallica, Black Sabbath megadeth
Are Not Satanic... only satanic band in world is marylin manson!
Unless Dimebag was I don't see how. - Metalhead1997
One thing... They are satanic
Dude where are you getting your sources bro have you actually heard the song Black Sabbath it's about people that follow the devil in about how they'll be a burned on the lake of fire and deceived by Lucifer how stupid can people be read the lyrics stop listening to this actual song I don't know how many people I have to tell this he left the stage back in the seventies because people were throwing dead animals up on the stage read the book - Steve420
The absolute BEST heavy metal/hard rock band, ever! My personal favorite! True, they are NOT satanic! They have songs that deal with both good, and evil that permeate life in this world. Their song "After Forever" tells us to "Just realize, before they criticize, that God is the only way to love"! Yeah! That's REAL satanic, ain't it!?
They have songs about Lucifer becoming a Good Guy! - SoldierOfFortune
They might not be satanic, but Ozzy Osbourne kinda is - zxm
I honestly thought Ozzy didn't really have a preferred religion. - Metalhead19971 Comment
It's a Christian power metal band
@LightningBlade, this is a list of NON - SATANIC bands
I STRONGLY believe Slayer is satanic
Slayer isn't Satanic, Tom is Catholic!
Did you know? Tom araya say they never practice satanic I'm not their fans but yeah there are songs from them I like
Slayer isn't satanic at all. Tom Araya is Catholic. - Metalhead19975 Comments
I get a bad feeling listen 2 them - Joshuaisdotdotdot
This is clearly made by a bunch of fundamental Christian conspiracy theorists that think every thing that's not about Christ, it automatically makes it "satanic". As far as I'm concerned, who ever made this list is ignorant to what Satanism really is. Slipknot is a whiny-emo band, not a satanic band.
Again Satanic come one people even they talk about life but they are satanic I saw christian views on this band and that christian did a lot of research on this and turns out to be satanic - Masterdonny
They are a great band! The best modern Metal band!5 Comments
How is this band considered satanic? Oh, right...because of our grandparents' generation. - Metalhead1997
This is a bloody Christian Metal Band, come on!
This is personally my favorite metal band!
All right look them up do some research - Masterdonny
This literally a Christian Metal band -_-
Matt shadows happens to be a Catholic.
Matt Shadows is catholic. Syn is but isn't very religious. The rev was catholic.
I don't think they are satanic - zxm
This band is definitely not satanic in any way shape or form1 Comment
David Draiman is a deist, which isn't a Satanist at all. - Metalhead1997
Just because they have a pentagram for their symbol doesn't mean they're satanic. Look at Anthrax and Slayer. They have the pentagram symbol yet they have members who are Catholic, Christian and Atheists. They just do it for shock value, not to summon actual evil.
Oh arch enemy this is good band a best song best solo and arch is not satanic but I don't no why bands use this a pentagrams and alissa and doyle why pentagrams on your both hand?
Did my research and definitely satanic any band with the star is satanic even those without it are satanic except for christian metal and rock bands - Masterdonny
Primal Fear is Not Satanic, they are Metal to the MAX!
I don't think Overkill is really a satanic band at all I mean think about it Overkill they're talking about people we talked about too much killing the meaning think about it and some of the lyrics I've been studying that to they're talking about people who turn away from God or choose their own mistakes in life nobody holds a gun to your head and tells you to go believe in Satan come on
Overkill isn't satanic obviously the name of the band gives that away they talk about people who need to pull away from saying a lot of these bands or not influencing Satanism guys they're trying to send a strong message most of them are followers of God Believe it or not Kreator is actually not a santanic band either the song Satan is real facts about how people or blind I need to open their eyes about the truth about him a lot of people don't know how to resist the temptation of following and santan and that's a problem because we're getting closer to the tribulation - Steve420
Suicide Silence is one of my favorite badd ever! Mitch Lucker was absolutely amazing at what he did and so was the rest of the guys. This band is great and I recommend listening to them!
They have a song called Satan My Master. Surprisingly though, they're not satanic!
That star is very demonic that's the satanic symbol - Masterdonny
Quorthon is not a satanist
No, as far as I know they are one of the most satanic metal bands. - zxm
Behemoth is extremely satanic. They said it thamselves that they were
If Bathory isn't satanic band, Behemoth isn't satanic too.
Best band going, no question about it
Bassist and lead guitarist r Christian. Korn is AMAZING!
How is KoЯn satanic?!
Possessed is not satanic it's just for shock value but it's still stupid to put them on the list so is bathory but they only had one satanic song I know of satan my master
This band is good to listen to. There is no trace of Satanism anywhere in there lyrics
I Don't Know If Drowning Pool Is Satanic Or Not
But This Song Called Hate I Think That's The Only Satanic Song
Yes, Deep Purple is a heavy metal band and non-satanic. All they ever sing are love, life, people, rock music, pain etc. I haven't found any song of their's mention satanism. - zxm
You know, some songs mention it to show the evils of life, so just because a song mentions the devil or hell, it doesn't make it or the band satanic. - Metalhead1997
This band is not satanic what they talk about is something completely different has nothing to do with any religion something they created separately yes Andy Black made a movie called American Satanist that movie was talking about other people's experiences inside satanic cults if you play with fire you're going to get burned plain and simple - Steve420
I love them
Whoever thinks AC/DC is satanist is an idiot.
Not metal, hard rock. But I don't belie they're totally free from satanism. I mean at least some of their members may had interest in it. - zxm
Named after a battery and yet people thought it was After Christ, Devil Comes. - Metalhead1997
OK but they aren't metal. - Metal_Treasure1 Comment
They aren't a metal band. - Metal_Treasure
My own mother thought they were satanic because it apparently means Knights In Satan's Service. - Metalhead1997
I love tourniquet
I don't really see how this band is satanic at all they're talking about the opposite for real think about the song Satan is real you have to listen to it really carefully - Steve420
