Top 10 Heavy Metal Bands That Are Not Satanic

A 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.
