List of Christian metal artists

Stryper on tour in 1987 to support their third album, To Hell with the Devil, which reached platinum status at a time when most Christian bands were going unheard in the secular market.[1]
Underoath, whose 2006 album, Define the Great Line, debuted on the Billboard 200 Chart at No. 2.[2]

This is a list of Christian metal artists, including artists that played Christian metal at some point in their careers.

Christian metal, which is also known as white metal or heavenly metal,[3] is heavy metal music with a Christian message. Christian metal is regarded more of a concept rather than a genre since it has no specific musical characteristics.[4] It emerged in the late 1970s as a means of evangelization to the wider heavy metal music scene and was pioneered by American bands Resurrection Band and Barnabas, Swedish band Jerusalem and Canadian band Daniel Band.[3] Los Angeles' Stryper achieved wide success in the 1980s. In the mid to late 1980s, extreme metal genres were popularized by bands such as Vengeance Rising, Deliverance, Believer and Tourniquet.[5] In the early 1990, the Australian death metal band Mortification rose to prominence within its country's underground metal scene.[6][7] At the turn of the 21st century, P.O.D, with two platinum-selling albums, achieved a mainstream commercial success rivaling that of Stryper.[8] The metalcore groups Underoath, Demon Hunter, As I Lay Dying and Norma Jean (dubbed by the magazine Revolver as "The Holy Alliance") also brought some mainstream attention to the movement in the first decade of the 2000s, achieving ranks in the Billboard 200.[9]
