Featured Story

The problem with heavy metal music is sometimes one of association. In the hands of the unsaved world, heavy metal almost always embraces death and pain and suicide and drugs and anger (metal is very rarely “happy music”). Believers have to be careful not to get sucked into the culture of nihilism and antisocialism that metal usually promotes. While it is true that pain and death are a part of life, the key to overcoming those things is not anger or suicide or revenge. The answer is the gospel of Jesus Christ (Romans 1:16). There is nothing in the Bible that praises or glorifies death in the least, so neither should our music. Lyrics that violate biblical guidelines or celebrate or exalt sinful conduct are not appropriate for Christians.

With any kind of music, including Christian heavy metal, we must ask, “Is the music glorifying Christ, or does it glorify anger, lust, demonism, or some other sinful thing?” The style of the music is really irrelevant. It’s what the music communicates to our hearts and minds that matters, either through lyrics or even through the notes and instruments themselves. No style of music is actually “wrong”; it’s what the musicians do with the music that makes it either “right” or “wrong.”

The Singaporean government made headlines in March for canceling a concert by Swedish black metal band Watain, just hours before they were set to perform, over what one official described as the band’s anti-Christian lyrics. The conservative push to have the notorious band banned from playing began with a viral petition on Change.org.

Yesterday, the activist who created that petition, Rachel Chan, launched a new appeal on Change.org to have more performances by “extreme (death and black) metal bands” that are scheduled to play in Singapore stopped, just like Watain’s.

Screenshot: Change.org

Chan’s new petition includes snippets of the Wikipedia definitions for death metal and black metal, such as the bands expressing “extreme anti-Christian and misanthropic views, advocating various forms of Satanism of ethnic paganism”.

The petition also lists the four upcoming performances that it seeks to prevent: a concert by Dutch death metal band Pestilence scheduled for June 7; the Metal United World Wide festival on June 15; a gig by Canadian death metal band Cryptopsy on July 5; and a performance by Swedish melodic death metal band Soilwork on October 29.

Since it was posted yesterday, the petition has gained over 23,000 signatures, already equalling the number of people who signed the petition to ban Watain (as well as Soilwork) from Singapore.

Will this new petition lead to the government intervening once again in already scheduled concerts to protect the ears of our country’s youth? Based on their response to the Watain controversy, there’s certainly a chance it could, but it may depend on the specific lyrics of each band, particularly in terms of how they address religion.

After Watain’s concert was canceled by the Info-Communications Media and Development Authority (IMDA), Law and Home Affairs Minister K. Shanmugam said that the band’s anti-Christian lyrics were “so far out” that the decision to ban their Singapore performance was a no-brainer.

“I saw (Watain’s) lyrics – it’s four-letter words on Jesus Christ, on Christianity, on religion, abusing the cross – everything that is so far out that I can’t see how we could have agreed to (the concert),” Shanmugam told Channel NewsAsia. Source

Most Satanic Bands

Gorgoroth

Gorgoroth

Gorgoroth is a Norwegian black metal band based in Bergen. Formed in 1992 by Infernus, the band is named after the dead plateau of evil and darkness in the land of Mordor (a fictional location in J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings).

I think this band of pure evil demons is the best of all times! I don’t know who would say any thing bad about them like that+43

Number 1 and 2 were hard to decide but these guys did some bad stuff in krakow they had bloodbaths and fake crucifixion and the lead singer tortured someone and they burned a lot of churches+31

First off, If Gorgoroth was really satanic. They wouldn’t be putting fake crucifixions up on stage… Satan doesn’t like the crucifixion because when Jesus died for our sins, it was a defeat for him. Therefore, they are not satanic. They are a bunch of idiots trying to be satanic and know nothing of Satan because if they did they wouldn’t put up half the stuff that’s on their stage!

Jesus Christ our messiah is coming and all nonbelievers will perish! – Kirk899+20

And if you knew anything about satanism you would learn that the majority of satanists are atheists and the ones that aren’t don’t believe jesus existed at all+20

Now, I’ve listen to some of the bands on here that are deemed Satanic, I’ve never really listened to any of these bands in the top ten more than once except for Ghost. Now, black metal isn’t my cup of tea, but I’ll listen to it. And Mayhem is the only one I probably won’t listen to again. Mayhem is just to horrible for me. One of their lead singers used to dress like a corpse starting the “corpse paint” trend in black metal. He also cut himself on stage with glass and buried his clothes to get the “stench of death” on it. He would also throw pig heads at the crowd to weed out the posers. This guy is messed up. – SirSkeletorThe3rd+7

Euronymous will probably forever in history be the most satanic, evil figure in black metal history. Once stating that he favoured the totalitarian style of communism practiced by Joseph Stalin and Pol Pot, and was against individualism, compassion, peace, happiness and fun, Anyone who votes for nunslaughter or bands like that, should stop and listen to some of mayhem’s lyrics, and even their riffs are more satanic than nunslaughters lyrics, and definitely more so than cradle of filth and Gorgoroth.

I love these guys there songs are the best 

No band portrays the true cause of theistic Satanism in the candid manner that Ghost does. Without these artists, we would not have songs like “Ritual”, “Year Zero”, and “Monstrance Clock.” Through their Satanic efforts, the dark lord Lucifer is honored and exalted by those who adore and vilify his grace alike. Papa Emeritus II of Ghost has foreseen the future of man, and it is grim for those who have not accepted Lucifer and the 5 Kings of Hell into their broken souls.

Ghost is a band of true embodiments of the Lord Lucifer’s unholy labour, and with their help, his work is achieved. Lyrics such as “Come together as one, for Lucifer’s son.” and “Hail Satan, Archangelo! ” shape the way into the mind of the sheep of the earth, through their catchy, laid back metal and charmingly evil lyrics. As well as the technicality of the musicians themselves. A satanic clergy, and enigma, which is meditated upon by the masses. Every listen and thought towards them is a testament of good-will …more+9

Got to see them in concert this week and they are utterly AMAZING live! The atmosphere created is something you just have to experience. It really feels like an amazing religious experience. Ghost has managed to make theistic satanism appealing, and I love that the vocals are clear and nuanced. As a side note, the fans at the show we went to were wonderful. I’m disabled and the crowd was so helpful it was amazing.

Mercyful Fate was a Danish heavy metal band from Copenhagen, formed in 1981 by vocalist King Diamond and guitarist Hank Shermann.

This is the only band that should be in the top spot. The rest that came after (all of the so called “black metal” bands wearing corpse paint that are pretty much a parody) copied their style. Yeah, Alice Cooper, Kiss and Arthur Brown may have worn the paint first, but Mercyful Fate took it to the next level, as well as the Satanic lyricism, forming a new package. Why on earth is Ghost above Mercyful Fate, when everyone knows they are a mix of Mercyful Fate and Blue Oyster Cult?+1

It took me really long to find this 

Awesome Music, great voice and
impressive literary lyrics. Rest in Chaos Jon. 

Dissection is awesome but I still love Jesus Christ the lord and savior+11

Dissection needs to be number one and two on this list Jon would have killed the members of ghost and eaten them. Jon killed in the name of Satan twice first someone else them himself. His suicide note read “I’m going away, I’m going to Transylvania” What did ghost every do put on some masks oh so edgy+1V 7 CommentsVoteE38Venom

Most of the lyrics are about satanism. – GREYBOYY+5

Now this should be number one, compared to black metal now it may not be as satanic as the others but Venom stared the black metal genre.+1

Lol, “Satanic? ” Just because they did a song called “Highway To Hell” or “Hells Bells” doesn’t mean they’re satanic! – galaxyfox+2

The name sucks man!+13

Their name is “Rotting Christ.” -. – How are they not satanic? I don’t even need to listen to their music to know this is pure Satanism.+6

Wow… you think that just because of their name that they’re satanic? And they call metalheads close minded. It’s like someone saying that Sodom is satanic, or that Slayer is satanic. It just doesn’t make sense. If it’s not you’re thing, that’s fine, but do some research. That’s it.+2

Lol how – PumpkinKing109 

LOL…Manson was obsessed with Helter Skelter which came out before him. John comparing them to Jesus not how he meant it. They were always high and he used a poor analogy and did what he could to explain it. THEY WERE AND ARE NOT SATANIC! Satanism teaches hate for all so how would a satanist make a song like Imagine? Get your fact before posting here people, but then again that’s the problem today. Everyone gets a voice with social media even those who are uninformed and don’t take the time to research before posting. ONE LOVE!+7

The beatles were not satanic, a lot of their satanic criticism comes from older people who criticized their abstract musical style!+2

Avenged Sevenfold, AC/DC, Black Veil Brides, Bullet For My Valentine, Judas Priest… how could you think these people are Satanists or even care for Satanism? Korn, Slipknot, Metallica. Even Nirvana is on here. Hopefully that’s some sort of joke… Three Days Grace, Santana, and Tool are also on here laugh out loud.

Umm NOPE try again listen to the lyrics… They talk about how the devil is BAD laugh out loud most of the songs talk about God+16

Hey gd evening, I’ve allways wanted to ask this question to a satanist. Why are you a satanist if its going to take you to hell (lake of fire) with satan himself? Sure he gives you powers (black magic etc) but they are just for as long as you are alive and then you wont inherit the kingdom of God. I don’t understand… why go down that road? God is love and Satan isn’t. Hell was for satan not for people. Satan wants you to die for him, even he will die… it is written+15

Black Veil Brides is NOT a satanic band.+11

What a joke of so called band! No where near satanic bebop is more of what they. Lock up your 12 year olds they are coming for them! V 9 Comments

One of the mysteries of the Christian life is why God didn’t destroy Satan immediately after Satan sinned. We know that God will one day defeat Satan by throwing him into the Lake of Fire where he will be tortured day and night forever (Revelation 20:10), but sometimes we wonder why God has not destroyed Satan already. Perhaps we will never know God’s exact reasoning, but we do know certain things about His nature.

First, we know God is absolutely sovereign over all creation, and this includes Satan. Certainly, Satan and his demons wreak havoc in the world, but they are only allowed a certain amount of freedom. We also know that God has planned everything from the beginning of time to the end. Nothing can thwart His plans, and things are proceeding exactly on schedule. “The LORD of hosts has sworn: ‘As I have planned, so shall it be, and as I have purposed, so shall it stand’” (Isaiah 14:24).

Second, “we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28). Whatever God has planned for Satan, that plan will be the best one possible. God’s perfect wrath and justice will be satisfied, and His perfect righteousness will be glorified. Those who love Him and who wait for His plan to be fulfilled will be thrilled to be part of that plan and will praise and glorify Him as they see it unfold.

Third, we know that to question God’s plan and its timing is to question God Himself, His judgment, His character and His very nature. It is not wise to question His right to do exactly as He pleases. The psalmist tells us, “As for God, His way is perfect” (Psalm 18:30). Whatever plan comes from the mind of the Almighty is the best plan possible. It is true that we can’t expect to understand that mind perfectly, as He reminds us, “‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ says the LORD. ‘For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts’” (Isaiah 55:8-9). Nevertheless, our responsibility to God is to obey Him, to trust Him, and to submit to His will, whether we understand it or not. In the case of His timing for Satan’s demise, it has to be the best possible plan because it is God’s plan.

It is impossible to find anyone in the Bible who was a power for God who did not have enemies and was not hated.

    We are SINNERS and Jesus is the SAVIOR. There can be no salvation through any other name given amongst men, than through the precious name of Jesus Christ (Acts 4:10-12). Anyone who teaches that sincerity is all that matters is an unsaved fool (Proverb 16:25). The Catholic Church is of the Devil, because they teach a false gospel of works-salvation, sacramental-salvation, and baptismal-regeneration. In sharp contrast, the Bible says we are saved simply by faith alone in Jesus Christ.
