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.
15Affector
Harmagedon


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.
14Stryper
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.
11Mortification
Scrolls of the Megilloth


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


First "extreme" Christian metal album. Pretty wack.
9Believer
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.
8Deliverance
Weapons of Our Warfare


Quasi-concept album based on spiritual warfare from the band best summed up as Metallica meets Anthrax meets Jesus.
7Extol
Undeceived


Progressive Death/Black metal about as awesome as Opeth.
6Believer
Dimensions


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.
5Tourniquet
Psycho Surgery


1991 Thrash in the vein of Rust in Peace. Who wouldn't like this?
4Theocracy
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.
1Theocracy
As the World Bleeds


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