I know some of you might find it hard to believe, but I am somewhat of a metal head. I really enjoy listening to good heavy metal bands (Metallica is my favorite mainstream metal band). I especially enjoy 1980’s metal. One of my absolute favorite metal bands is Stryper, a Christian metal band. They’ve been around for 25 years and still rock…Jacinda and I saw them in concert last year.
Recently I’ve begun listening to the Christian rock band Skillet, and now I’m hooked on their music! They have such a raw sound, and it reminds me of much of the metal I listened to as a teenager, except this metal has a much more positive message. The band has been around for some time, but as I said I just recently started listening to them. I’ve discovered several great songs, but so far these two stand out as my favorites. Both songs are off their album Awake. The first is Awake and Alive, and the second is my favorite, Monster. Here are the official videos to both songs. They definitely get your blood pumping!
