Love Hard Rock? Check out These Five Christian Hard Rock Artists!

Christian music comes in so many genres–no matter what styles of music you like, I’m confident there’s a band for you! Last week we gave you Christian hip hop. This week it’s hard rock!

With so many Christian hard rock bands sharing their sound, it was difficult to narrow the selection down to five. I hope you enjoy them!

Skillet–“Awake and Alive” (“Awake,” released 2009)

Recent Album: “Awake,” 2009

Flyleaf–“New Horizons” (“New Horizons,” released 2012)

Recent Album: “New Horizons,” 2012

Disciple–“Lay My Burdens” (“Southern Hospitality,” released 2008)

Recent Album: “O God Save Us All,” 2012

RED–“Lie To Me (Denial),” (“Until We Have Faces,” released 2011)

Recent Album: “Release the Panic,” set to be released in 2013

Thousand Foot Krutch–“Favourite Disease” (“The Flame in All of Us,” released 2007)

Recent Album: “The End Is Where We Begin,” released 2012

How great is it that we can listen to our favorite genre of music while still glorifying our Lord?!

So, all you hard rock fans! Which of these sounds did you love? And if you already listen to Christian hard rock, which band is your favorite?
