Their singer is one of the first guys to have anti-Christian lyrics (lame) and to use the, now common, shrieking vocal style.

One of the first Christian black metal or..un-black as it is called, to deter away from the evil of "black metal". They had received threats for being Christian.

First big Christian Un-black metal band. They actually were threatened numerous times for playing with other Satanic/evil bands. On stage, they don't spit or drink goat blood and do rituals..they get satanic bibles and DESTROY THEM and make pagan alters and DESTROY THEM! One of the bravest bands ever!

Like Horde and Antestor, CM is one of the first Christian Black metal bands. They receive high praise among regular black metal bands, proving a band that is Christian is just as good as the others.

Satanic Black metal band that has some rather influential albums.

Although new and with 2 albums and an ep, AW's album In The Shadow of A Thousand Suns, is wicked popular and influential and probably my favorite black metal band.

Death Metal/Melodic Death Metal Bands

Although excellent musicians, they're known for literally..horrible/gore filled lyrics and album covers, that they're BANNED FROM PLAYING IN CERTAIN PLACES! Hugely influential.

Gothic/Symphonic/Power Metal

Considering this isn't an older genre, rather relatively new, Therion is One of the first death metal bands to incorporate symphonic elements, thus creating : Symphonic Metal or Melodic Death Metal.

My favorite band that is Symphonic. Simone's voice is operatic and lovely, highly praises Nightwish and Epica is influencing lots of bands currently.

No Deicide or Obituary or Morbid Angel under death metal? Also, the Goth/symphonic/power metal needs Type O Negative.

Word.
Posted: 7 years, 1 month ago at Nov 12 3:04
Oh yea Morbid Angel was big, same with Deicide. Will add.

Saying that lyrics about hate, satanism and mutilation are wrong and then saying that Bolt Thrower's lyrics are great, because they are about war and not about the themes mentioned above, and their imagery is cool, because it is about never-ending war, where humanity is worth nothing, kind of makes you look like a hypocrite.

And it isn't a band's fault that a picture of their dead singer is put on a BOOTLEG release of their music. There has never been an official Mayhem release with that cover.
