    Yes, I was thinking somewhat of Stryper, etc. Thank-you.

    Thanks for your comment.

    @Hidden In Him mentioned Stryper; do you know their tracks?

    I do think that, as well as Stryper, Disciple has also produced some effective Christian hard rock.

    Thanks for your comment.

    I was thinking particularly of it as an effective means - among many others - communicating hard hitting Biblical lyrics.

    I do agree that the question of musical taste is very subjective and personal.

    It could well speak to hard rock fans who are not yet saved.

    Most of them, yes. But now I listen to choral symphonies and stuff. Needless to say, I've toned it down a little at this point in my life, LoL.

    Yes. The band I was mentioning to Farouk actually played a part in my eventually turning to Christ. I played in heavy metal bands during that same time period, and Satan pretty much owned that world, or so I thought. Most people in that world only respect bands that are really good, and in the case of Stryper they actually were. Virtually everything we played was satanist-oriented, but I remember someone introducing us to Stryper and we were fairly impressed with their musicianship, but the shocker was that they were openly proclaiming Christ and Savior and Lord in a world where no Christians ever visited (It's kind of like a counter-culture or an underworld).

    Anyway, I didn't get saved right away, but it had a serious impact on me at the time. It was like proof that Satan wasn't as "all-powerful" as I previously thought he was. :)

    There have been several conversions tip Christ from within the music industry...some completely forsake their old l life straight away...others retain the genre but user Christian lyrics...others after a time give that away also. I have never really liked heavy metal, but do enjoy some of its close relatives...southern rock and Dixie.and many within those genres confess a faith in God, and reference that faith in dime of their lyrics...along with a love for whisky and weed.

    @Pearl Yes, indeed: I wonder what it must be like for a regular listener to hard rock suddenly to be confronted by the claims of Christ in such a hard hitting way, as for instance through Disciple's 'Radical'?

    @Hidden In Him

    Your post is very refreshing.
    I do sometimes get flak because I suggest that artforms such as hard rock, faith based tattoos can be done in an attempt to honour the glory of God; but when comments such as yours are made by way of personal testimony I do feel encouraged and refreshed! :)

    @Hidden In Him If you look at the lyrics of Disciple's 'Radical' in the video, a similar comment could maybe made like the one you made about Stryper, right?

    PS: @Hidden In Him

    This is a long set of Stryper tracks performed live; a pity the lyrics aren't supplied.
