My Top 15 Christian Metal Albums

Sure this has been done before but here's my take. I'm open to suggestions and what not. Keep in mind I lean towards more melodic metal.

Guest appearances from members of Dream Theater and Symphony X deliver like you'd expect. Lyrics are directly from the Bible which is pretty cool. "Salvation" is a great song.
To Hell With the Devil

Most successful and definitely the most cheesey. Nevertheless, it's got a few classics like the title track that earn my respect.
13Seventh Angel
Lament for the Weary

British doom/thrashers can sure make a good album. Very European thrash sounding.
12Veni Domine
Fall Babylon Fall

Think doomy Queensryche. Possibly the first Christian metal epic in "The Chronicle of the Seven Seals." The song "Wisdom Calls" is a classic.
Scrolls of the Megilloth

Christian death metal pioneers' most brutal album. TERMINATE DAMNATIOOOOOOOOOON.
10Vengeance Rising
Human Sacrifice

First "extreme" Christian metal album. Pretty wack.
Sanity Obscure

Technical thrash with ridiculous riffs and solos. Left turns like the U2 cover and the operatic turned thrash "Dies Irae" are quite awesome too.
Weapons of Our Warfare

Quasi-concept album based on spiritual warfare from the band best summed up as Metallica meets Anthrax meets Jesus.

Progressive Death/Black metal about as awesome as Opeth.

Progressive/symphonic/technical thrash with the highlight being the "Trilogy of Knowledge" which could be the most original Christian metal song. The operatic female vocals own all.
Psycho Surgery

1991 Thrash in the vein of Rust in Peace. Who wouldn't like this?
Mirror of Souls

It's Theocracy. It has an epic title track, and "Laying the Demon to Rest" is the perfect combo of thrash and power metal.
3Saviour Machine
Saviour Machine I

Innovative Goth Metal with lyrics too dark for mainstream Christians. It's got it all with heavy plodders like "Killer" and moving, depressing ballads like "A World Alone" and their masterpiece "Jesus Christ."
2Neal Morse
Sola Scriptura

Might not be 100 percent metal but the first two 25 plus minute epics "The Door" and "The Conflict" afford its high position. Christian prog metal has never been so deep lyrically and enjoyable musically.
As the World Bleeds

10 catchy, nearly flawless power metal songs. Far more shredding than Mirror of Souls. "I AM" is my favorite song.
