- Hello, and welcome to my blog. Back then, I was into Chevelle, Seether, Three Days Grace, Breaking Benjamin, Staind, Puddle Of Mudd, Green Day, Limp Bizkit, Sevendust, Korn, Creed, Alter Bridge, Trapt, Nine Inch Nails, and many others. I digged their great guitar but their lyrics gave me a weird feeling. I realized I needed to change. So I went to the Christian side. Their are some great christian hard rock bands. I thought maybe I could share these bands with you. I hope you like them :). My favorite genres are alternative metal, hard rock(obviously), nu metal, hard rock mixed with rap, heavy metal(bands similar to AC/DC, Guns N Roses, Megadeth, any others. I don’t like too much screaming like the bands Norma Jean & Underoath, but I mainly dig the guitar with good sounding lyrics), and hardcore. Here’s a list of bands I know and want to share with you :).
