Fit For A King is phenomenal. Red is also good but I donít consider it metal.

Red isn't heavy enough for me.

Skillet - not metal
Red - not metal
Thousand Foot Krutch - not metal
Demon Hunter - metal? maybe?
P.O.D - nu metal, is that really metal?
Disciple - great band, not metal
Stryper
Flyleaf - not metal
Creed - not metal, not good

So by default, Stryper is the best Christian metal band on your list. :-)

Another one is “Like Moths to Flames”, but they actually talk about questioning God rather than preaching about.

I believe their first release was on Steve Taylor's Squint label after that I think they went more mainstream but you'd have to check me on that.

They were certainly Christian-educated.
I definitely agree with this much more so than calling them a Christian band.

As for my favorites, I love Phinehas and Impending Doom, Temple of Perdition, and Signum Regis quite a bit. Those are my favorites.
Interesting. I will have to check them out again. In the 80s the sort of had to cater to the commercial scene at the time writing power ballads.

Have you heard Lo-Ruhamah? Little-known band. Really heavy and extremely talented.

Saw these guys open up for Tool back in 2010. Put on a pretty unique show. Itís not metal, more of a dark folk, but definitely heavy. When I looked them up after the show I was surprised to find that the Christian imagery he sang about was sincere and not tongue in cheek. I mean, the were opening for Tool for fuckís sake. Guess the guy used to be a junkie, found god, and got clean. Itís the only modern Christian band, or band with Christian themes, that I can really stomach. Give it a listen if so inclined.
