One would think that those who actually live in Scandinavia know better than those who live in America. :angel:

But then again since I'm not into Nationalism, Scandinavism or other isms for me it doesn't really matter whether we are part of Scandinavia or not. People should value their heritage in it's own right rather than it being part of something bigger. Länge leve Finland. ;)

I PM'd you, that'll fix this issue.  :police:

This concept has also spread to Colombia: "Iglesia rockero en Bogota" (grupo "PANTOKRATOR", because even the "metaleros Christianos" need the street cred that comes with misspelling things)

I think I can hear my grandmother rolling over in her grave at this...Señor, ten piedad...

If Varg Vikernes could stop being a pagan neo-Nazi weirdo we could have some viable metal masses: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPyOhP1GTRQ

I can't see how they expect people to take Christianity seriously when doing this, sure people will come listen to it and be entertained, but will it really change their hearts? Then again, if it gets Europeans back in church, that can't be all bad.

Hey, if I were close by when this was happening... Id go.   ;D
Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

— Chrysostom

Let's rock for the Rock! White metal forever! Unblackened/undeath metal reigns supreme with the King!

"Undeath metal" doesn't sound particularly Christian, but it does sound pretty awesome.

Umm.. No thanks.

Wimps and posers... leave the hall!

I actually play guitar in a metal band and have for years.  :P

However, I prefer not to have it in worship.

It's good! Not Orthodox, but better than what many Orthodox make of themselves.

Why didn't I see this thread two years ago!

Amon Amarth could probably make it sound good, but would have to turn their hammers upside down to look like Crosses.  They seemed to forget that there were Christian vikings...St. Olaf, Olaf Trygvasson, Harald Hardrada. 

Then again, I don't like the idea of a metal liturgy.  It just feels weird to me.  Then again, much of Renaissance and Baroque church music would have been the popular styles of their day.  Perhaps it is a change in focus.  When Pretorius and Gabrielli wrote it was to glorify God and just so happened to also be entertaining.  Not entertainment first and foremost.

How quickly we forget the lessons of Manowar. Did they not show us the way?

The triune God made heavy metal, and He saw that it was good
He said to play it in order to avoid hell, and we promised that we would,
When demons say it's over with, you know that it's a lie
For God made heavy metal, and it's never gonna die!
