I know this will make me sound like an id!ot, but what is the difference between Rock and Metal?

Metal generally has higher gain on the guitars, musically is faster (or slower, in the case of doom) and more riff driven and has a sort of epic feel. For the most part the vocals are higher and operatic (Judas Priest, Theocracy, DragonForce, Nightwish, etc), an aggressive bark/snarl (Metallica, Megadeth, Deliverance, etc), or in the extreme genres, harsh growls or shrieks (Amon Amarth, Antestor, Immortal, etc). Extreme metal is also much harsher on the ears than, say, Power or Symphonic. There is some overlap with metal and hard rock with the 80s glam bands like Mötley Crüe, W.A.S.P. and Poison.

Ah, thanks! I personally prefer rock/hard rock over metal, although that is biased since I haven’t listened to an abundance of metal.

I don't really have any one favorite artist/band, but I have been listening to Pink Floyd's albums a lot recently.
Animals, Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall, Wish You Were Here, A Momentary Lapse of Reason.

Hey thanks, that was probably a better explanation than what i could offer :-D

I am into the more extreme stuff, and it is definitely an acquired taste - once you get into it though, you will find an abundance of really talented and/or skilled musicians :-) Vocals are usually what stops most people from listening to it, but if you try to single out the individual instruments instead of the wall of sound as a whole, it is easier to phase out/ignore the vocals. The vocals can even begin to grow on you once you have been listening for a while.

That genre has plenty of good bands too :-) If you do decide to give the heavier stuff a try to see if it's something for you, i would recommend you ease into it. Otherwise, some of the more extreme examples would k!ll the curiosity rather quickly. I would recommend starting out with some of the suggestions Chouju listed (perhaps not black metal to start with though) plus some of the earlier Metallica or perhaps even Korn. If you find yourself listening to Slipknot and liking it later on, i could definitely recommend quite a few bands on the extreme side of metal :-D

I love anything 80s! When I'm building LEGO, I usually have Pandora's "Alternative 80s" channel on - that way, I get most of the great 80s UK bands.

Favourites include: Talk Talk, Talking Heads, Depeche Mode, Human League, Pet Shop Boys, Thomas Dolby, Thompson Twins, etc

Yeah, I basically only listen to christain artists, so one of the problems is it doesn’t seem tgat there are many Christian Metal bands. The only one I have found is a speed metal band, August Burns Red. (Which isn’t me favorite) although they have some really nice instrumentals.

My preferred rock band is Red, I would describe some of their songs as “extreme” (Damage being one) but they are probably pretty mild compared to most metal bands.

I think Tim Hawkins is a Christian singer, though he doesn't do metal.
He's kinda like Weird Al, has mostly parodies with a few original songs.

I listen to a lot of Christian metal - check out the website Angelic Warlord for info + reviews. I've found a lot through them. Also, do a search on Encyclopedia Metallum for "Christianity" under lyrical themes and you'll get 4,364 results of varying genres.

My recommendations:

-Theocracy
-Stryper
-Chaotic Resemblance
-Deliverance
-W.A.S.P.'s latest two albums, "Babylon" and "Golgotha." The singer/band leader, Blackie Lawless, became a Christian a few years ago and did a 180 on lyrics.
-Project Aegis
-ReinXeed
-Northern Flame
-Sinbreed
-Ordained Fate
-Sacred Warrior
-Rob Rock and some of his work with Impellitteri
-Signum Regis
-Barren Cross
-Vandroya, not explicitly Christian but they hang out with Theocracy and Signum Regis
-Axiom Inherent, obscure/broken up band with four songs. I hang out with the guitarist's sister so I know a bit about 'em.
-Disciple
-Babylon Mystery Orchestra
-Demon Hunter

Hehe. I am familiar with him, ah what a great comedian. I would love to see his take on metal xD

Thanks for the list! I actually have heard of Demon Hunter and Disciple. (The latter of which I song live in concert a long time ago) so I guess I listen to a bit of metal. I am just not a major fan of endless screaming lol. I definitely want to listen to more demon hunter, they have looots of music.

That is of course your choice :-) In that case i'm sure Chouju's list below will come in handy if you're still interested in giving metal a try.

If you don't mind that the lyrics aren't religious though, there are quite a few metal bands out there too that doesn't touch religion at all. For instance, Obituary made a whole album in the 90's with pollution and the environment as lyrical themes.

Pink Floyd is definitely great music too :-) The Wall is the one i know best.


The "Wish You Were Here" album is literally half instrumental (no singing).
My favorite song from that album shares the name; "Wish You Were Here".

"Animals" is also quite instrumental-heavy, almost as much as "WYWH". "Dogs" is my favorite; a 17 minute long song with about half of that being just instrumentals.

"A Momentary Lapse Of Reason" isn't as instrumental, but it has its pieces.
The album's about 8 minutes longer than their usual length.
I like "One Slip" and "Learning To Fly" the most.

"Dark Side Of The Moon" is probably their best-selling album. It's pretty good overall.
"Brain Damage/Eclipse" is my favorite song(s).

"The Wall" is twice as long as their usual albums; an hour twenty minutes compared to the fortyish minutes of most of them. It only has a couple instrumental segments; from both "In The Flesh" pieces and "Comfortably Numb".
I like about half the album; though some of the "songs" are only like a minute or two long.
1-5, 12, and 19-26 are the ones I like.

Well, maybe i should give their other albums a try someday :-) I vaguely remember a couple of the titles, so i probably know some of the tracks you mention although i don't remember any specifically.

It has been quite a while since i listened to "the wall", so i don't remember which of the particular tracks on it (apart from the three "brick in the wall"-tracks) i like, but i remember the album as a good story overall with several very fine tunes across the album.
