  2. Can't say I've heard of them brother.
     
  3. Me too. Perhaps you could introduce them?
     
  4. yea google slipknot, or google linkin park. slipknot is a heavy metal band, and linkin park is a nu-metal band. here are the lyrics to my favorite songs by bolth of them, for you to check out.

    slipknot- gently

    (guitar and drum solo for 2:00)

    (singing) gently my mind escapes....into a relaxing world of pleasure, a pleasure that will take my mind, off the reality's of my life, my past lifes
    (yelling) (guitars get heavy) life as i know it now, and whatever may come
    it slowly dissapears, to somewhere in the back of my mind, and it shall
    remian there, till iwish to retrieve it (guitar solo) yes i will stay here for a while, for i need the break, a break from the pressures of life. (guitar solo)

    linkin park- a place for my head

    I watch how the moon sits in the sky on a dark night
    Shining with the light from the sun
    But the sun doesn't give the light to the moon assuming,
    The moon's gonna owe it one
    It makes me think of how you act to me
    You do favors that rapidly
    You just turn around and start asking me,
    About things that you want back from me

    I'm so sick of the tension
    Sick of the hunger
    Sick of you acting like I owe you this
    Find another place to feed your greed
    While I find a place to rest

    (singing) I wanna be in another place
    I hate when you say you don't understand
    (You'll see it's not meant to be)
    I wanna be in the energy
    Not with the enemy
    A place for my head

    Maybe some day I'll be just like you and
    Step on people like you do
    Run away all the people I thought I knew
    I remember back then who you were
    You used to be calm used to be strong
    Used to be generous but you should’ve known
    That you'd wear out your welcome
    now you see how quiet it is all alone

    I'm so sick of the tension
    Sick of the hunger
    Sick of you acting like I owe you this
    Find another place to feed your greed
    While I find a place to rest

    I'm so sick of the tension
    Sick of the hunger
    Sick of you acting like I owe you this
    Find another place to feed your greed
    While I find a place to rest

    I wanna be in another place
    I hate when you say you don't understand
    (You'll see it's not meant to be)
    I wanna be in the energy
    Not with the enemy
    A place for my head

    You try to take the best of me, go away
    You try to take the best of me, go away
    You try to take the best of me, go away
    You try to take the best of me, GO AWAY
    You try to take the best of me, go away
    You try to take the best of me, go away
    You try to take the best of me, go away
    You try to take the best of me, GO AWAY!!!!!

    I wanna be in another place
    I hate when you say you don't understand
    (You'll see it's not meant to be)
    I wanna be in the energy
    Not with the enemy
    A place for my head

    I am so sick of the tension
    Sick of the hunger
    Sick of you acting like I owe you this
    Find another place to feed your greed
    While I find a place to rest

    I am so sick of the tension
    Sick of the hunger
    Sick of you acting like I owe you this
    Find another place to feed your greed
    While I find a place...to...rest
     
  5. Slipknot isn't too bad, though looking at them as a Christian influence is a very big stretch for me. I like the halloween masks and stuff, but I would classify them more in the metalcore/nu-metal myself. They have some good telent musically though, but I don't know their philosophies as far as morals and/or religion is.

    Linkin Park is more of a hybrid. I wouldn't put them in the metal scene at all. More like Prog-rock mixed with a bit of hip-hop or rap. I like a few of their songs, but I'm not much of a fan at all. Apologetix did a great remake of "In the End" called "Chorinthians" which was absolutely great, and our band thought about covering it at church one time.
     
  6. someone coverd "in the end"? cool. nu-metal is what they're under at launch, but rap-core rap-rock is more them
     
  7. Corinthians
    Parody of "In the End" by Linkin Park
    (1 Cor. 13)

    It starts with love
    Young thing -- I don't know why
    You didn't read the letter our Lord supplied
    With that in mind I revised this rhyme to explain to you guys all I know
    Love is a wonderful thing
    Watch the fly guys with the Benjamins sing
    Watch the countdown that the MTV plays I got ticked by the way
    It's so unreal -- Britney and Jennifer Lo
    Watch the wardrobe -- looks like a window
    Tryin' to hold on to itty bitty clothes
    You pasted them on -- this is not true love
    I guess everything's a hybrid breeding love and pride
    In small jealous hearts
    What it gets to be is essentially just a parody
    Like this rhyme is of Linkin Park
    You tried so hard -- but love's so far
    Corinthians -- it doesn't even matter
    If love's too small -- you lose it all
    Corinthians -- first letter, thirteenth chapter
    Love waits -- it's also kind
    It doesn't envy, brag, or grow hard with pride
    Keeps things polite, doesn't like to fight
    It denies itself, while it tries no harm
    If I have the faith and philosophy
    Acting like I was smarter than Socrates
    And every language and tongue and prophecy
    I could die and not go far
    If at the stake they burned me or
    I could've given every dime to many poor
    If love's lackin' throw me back then
    Buddy, Paul wrote that to Corinthians
    It bears everything, besides, believes and hopes, abides
    That Paul fella's smart
    Love he said to me will eventually keep no memory
    Of your crimes 'cause it finds no fault
    CHORUS
    It likes what's just and true
    Dislikes what's unrighteous though
    Failure is the only one thing it can't know
    The things that last are few
    Just have faith and love and hope
    From all these, there's only one thing you need most

    1 Cor. 13:13
    And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
     
  8. I used to like LP quite a bit but then I just stop listening to it after a while. I think Slipknots pretty good but I lost my CD.:(
     

  9. wow, that was a good cover lol. hey pddleford i got they're 1995 demo if you want it, its free so its not pirating, just putting that out there :)
     
  10. Cool, I'd like it! :p
     
  11. My son seems to like a band called" as I lay dieing"- the lyrics weren't overtly Christina but I really beleive I can see His heart being expressed in them.
     
  12. Alot of my friends like "Emo" music... <_< >_> But that's because I have alot of Emo friends =P




    (Note: My avatar person is an emo!:eek: No I'm not emo. I just think he is funny)
     
  13. As i lay dying is "listed" as a Christian band. He may also enjoy Anberlin and As Cities Burn. As far a Christian Metal and metalcore, I tend to like Disciple and Underoath.
     
  14. Before I was a Christian, I was heavilly into the metal scene, and have been to see bands such as Metallica, Machine Head and Slayer in concert.

    Since becoming a Christian though, all I really feel the need to listen to is Worship music though.

    That said, I still really like Slipknot, although I don't particularly see them as an advocation of the Christian lifestyle as their lyrics can come across as pretty grim at times.

    If you like heavy bands though, try Third Day. They are a Christian Metal band, and are really good.
     
  15. yea "as i lay dying" is labeld as christian. i diddnt know underoath was a christian band? lol cool.
     
  16. I thought that Slipknot were a satanist group...
     
  17. I cannot stand Slipknot.
    I mean really, have you heard all the cussing in their music?
    Linkin Park, also.

    As I Lay Dying is pretty cool.
    I love underOATH.
    But my favorite band of all is Anberlin, they're just so amazing.
    Their lyrics are just so deep.



    Anberlin- The Unwinding Cable Car
    Backing away from the problem of pain; you never had a home
    You've been misguided, you're hiding in shadows for so very long
    Don't you believe that you've been deceived that you're no better than...
    The hair in your eyes, it never disguised what you're really thinking of

    This is the correlation of salvation and love
    Don't drop your arms
    Don't drop your arms, I'll guard your heart
    With quiet words I'll lead you in



    Anberlin- Paperthin Hymn
    When your only friends are hotel rooms,
    Hands are distant lullabies
    If I could turn around I would tonight

    These roads never seemed so long
    Since your paper heart stopped beating, leaving me suddenly alone
    Will daybreak ever come?

    Who's gonna call on Sunday morning?
    Who's gonna drive you home?
    I just want one more chance
    To put my arms in fragile hands
    I thought you said forever
    (Over and over)
    A sleepless night becomes bitter oblivion

    These thoughts run through my head
    (Over and over)
    Complacent violence become my only friends


    August evenings
    Bring solemn warnings
    To remember to kiss the ones you love goodnight

    You never know what temporal days may bring
    Laugh, love, live free and sing
    When life is in discord,
    Praise ye the Lord

    Who's gonna call on Sunday morning?
    Who's gonna drive you home?
    I just want one more chance
    To put my arms in fragile hands

    I thought you said forever
    (Over and over)
    This sleepless night becomes bitter oblivion

    These thoughts run through my head
    (Over and over)
    Complaints of violins become my only friends
     
  18. Before i was saved.. i was pretty deep into heavy metal... slipknot was one of my favorite bands..

    i had every one of their cd's.. i loved them..

    as i look back .. thier songs just remind me of one of the darkest times in my life..

    they only have 1 song that doesnt have cussing in it.. half of thier songs are about either killing someone or beating some one up. or feeling sick or alone. they even have a song calle "wait and bleed" and a commentary they did on the song they said its just a song about a guy that is dreaming he was in a tub with his wrists slit bleeding to death. and we wakes up to find that its true....

    Slipknot is a Horrible band.. they are not satanic though.. ppl say this b/c thier bands number is 666 but they have a different meaning behind it.. they are not satanic.. but in no way are they a positive band..

    and if i remember correctly. b/c i did a paper on slipknot back when i liked them.. their 1 christian member left the band b/c he figured out how horrible they were. and as a Christian he could not be a part of that any more..

    as for linkin park.. i liked them as well. im not so against Linkin park.. but i still would not listen to them today. they are definatly not a Christian band.. just b/c they have 1 member who is Christian or a song or 2 that has a semi Christian double meaning to it. does not make them appropriate music for Christians..
     
  19. I was under the impression that slipknot was a death metal group.
    I used to hear things as a child.
    Think what a slipknot is... Its a knot that is used when someone hangs themselves or gets hanged.
     
  20. I dont listen to slipknot, but I do like the style of music. AND there is an alternative to this in the Christian world.
    Linkin Park has songs that deal with the reality of the feelings people have whether or not they are leading a Christian lifestyle. I listen to Linkin Park because that is the genre of music I like. I have listented to their lyrics and by judging by that, it's not putting negative notations in my head. I find no fault at this point.

    We have to understand that God can use a non-Christian band to bring someone to the understanding that feeling lost or under pressure or even about to give up in life is a hopeless way to live and there must be more out there. He did for me.

    Linkin Park, Beach Boys, Beatles and Nickelback are the only "NON" christian bands that I can listen to, the rest I listen to nothing but Christian music. (We have an awesome Christian Rock station where I live) But that is my own conviction. We have to becareful and not put God in a box, however, we do have to get on a personal level with Jesus to know what is right or wrong for each of us.

    Just as with all things in life we are commanded to judge something--everything by it's fruits.
    Matthew 7:20 So by their fruit you will know them.

    It's not about the genre of music, it's about what's in the song. Judge the song by it's lyrics. If they are negative and will cause you to stumble? I would suggest according to God's word to stay away from it.
    Listening to music that will justify fighting someone or commit violent acts is definately wrong. It is wrong because of what influence it will have on a person.

    Also, just to throw this out there,
    Romans 16:17 Now I urge you, brothers, to watch out for those who create divisions and sinful enticements that oppose the teaching you have learned. Stay away from them,

    Music is a very powerful thing. It can and DOES influence a person. Becareful out there. Keep a watchful eye not to be deceived. ;)
