All Emery and Relient K's members are christian. Even if they don't produce worship music, that's not the point of this thread.

They were...they don't exist anymore though.  Their old guitarist Rocky Gray is now the drummer for Evanescance...weird.

I'm not nearly as into the whole Christian music scene as I was a few years ago, but I think that some of my fellow forumites - especially the ones who've already mentioned Pedro The Lion - would do well to check out both Michael Knott and Denison Witmer.  Michael Knott has been a favorite artist of mine since I first heard his work with Lifesavors Underground (LSU) but I definately like his solo work more.  when i get home tonight, I may host a track for you guys to check out.

Tooth and Nail is a christian music label.. EVERY BAND ON IT is(or maybe was..) a christian band.


i dont know about the new stuff but ALOT of old Relient K songs have christian lyrics like

"Never underestimate my Jesus.
You're telling me that there's no hope.
I'm telling you your wrong.
Never underestimate my Jesus
When the world around you crumbles
He will be strong, He will be strong"

I think I have a mixtape from my old youth group - yeah, a Christian music cassette - which has Relient K and Toby Mac songs on it. I don't listen to it anymore because I didn't like those songs to begin with.

there's several songs on "I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning" where he references Christianity.  and also this one song "When The President Talks to God" or something, idk how recent it is, but i think it's about Bush.  i never really said he was a Christian, but there is a lot of it in his music.

True story, a number of years ago I was in a "Christian Ska" band whose name was so embarrassing I shan't divulge it here.  We covered a Supertones song.  Then one year, at Cornerstone, I met the trombone player, and he recommended a mouthpiece to me.

Also, I spent an afternoon with Reese Roper of Five Iron Frenzy that same C-stone.

If you don't mind alternative country/bluegrass, I can't reccomend 16 Horsepower enough. The lead singer, David Eugene Edwards, is the son of a traveling preacher, so there is a very strong biblical/vaudevillian atmosphere in a lot of the songs. If you're looking for something more mellow/solemn, he also has a few solo releases under the name Woven Hand.

I would not call Sixteen Horsepower "alternative country/bluegrass".  They may use those as elements in their music but they are a rock band.  That would be like calling Spiritualized a gospel/jazz band just because they use those elements.

Alternative country/bluegrass is stuff like the X-Grass compilations, Blackgrass, Hank Williams III, etc.

They've been mentioned briefly before, but Anathallo and Denison Witmer are really good names to know in the Christians-who-are-still-damn-fine-artists category. It comes through more so in Anathallo's music, though. They have reeeeally different styles. Anathallo has a bit of an Arcade Fire feel, with a heavier high school marching band influence, while Denison is pretty straight up acoustic folk.

Some legal downloads for both:

Anathallo's renditions of a few old hymns here. Really quite good. I sometimes wonder why "Christian music" ever decided to get into the rock/pop world at all. Back to the four-part vocal harmonies!

A bunch of home-recorded Denison songs here.

Unfortunately, my 9 year old brother has gotten into them recently. I forgot how bad they where  :-(

Lots of bands there, I may check some out. (possibly). Seriously though, why on Earth isn't there an Epic Post-Rock Christian band? Wouldn't that be the perfect kind of music for Christian Lyrics?

Faunts are a most excellent post-rock band composed of Christians. One of my favorite post-rock bands, actually. Reminiscent of Mogwai and Sigur Ros.

Viva Voce--an indiepop band--is kind of good, I guess, but perhaps a little boring.

Starflyer 59 has some really good stuff. Kind of indiepop and shoegaze.

Joy Electric has long been a guilty pleasure of mine. The White Songbook is probably his best work, but The Ministry of Archers is also very good. RIYL Kraftwerk.

The two guys from Joy Electric & Starflyer 59 recently teamed up to form The Bros. Martin, which is an immensely fun indie-pop/new-wave album.

Blindside's A Thought Crushed My Mind is one of the few metalcore albums I enjoy. I don't like anything they made after that, though.

Extol's Undeceived is excellent tech/prog death metal, is you don't mind the crappy lyrics.

Chasing Furies were a good female-fronted alternative rock band, IIRC. Too bad I don't know how to better describe their sound.

I may be heavily off-mark here, but don't Godspeed You! Black Emperor/A Silver Mount Zion have some sort of Jewish influence? That's part of the way there.

God gave Noah a rainbow sign, and then he said..."It's the fire next time!

I'm pretty sure that those lyrics are taken from older folk songs

From an old spiritual, I think. It was the epigram for James Baldwin's 1963 essay the Fire Next Time, which was one of the most significant pieces of literature to emerge from the American civil rights movement.

As for recommendations, I'm gonna weigh in with the Waterboys. Mike Scott's Christianity shines through in most of his songs, but in a deeply spiritual sense rather than a particularly overt Christian way. Also, he writes a killer tune: check out two of his most famous songs (which are also, incidentally, the title tracks of two stunningly good albums): "This Is the Sea" and "Fisherman's Blues".

Nope, you're right on the money Khar.  From the Wikipedia page on ASMZ,
Quote
Efrim himself is Jewish, and motifs relating to Judaism are occasionally present in the band's music (he described the band's recording of their first album as a "Jewish experience.")

You can dig further into this by linkjumping on Wikipedia, looking up GY!BE/ASMZ and following the different albums, but you're definately right.  There is also a very strong presence of street=preacher type material in the "found sounds" each band uses, the first couple tracks off of ASMZ's debut cd come to mind the quickest.

Yep, Efrim from A Silver Mt. Zion is Jewish.  He likes to use religious phrases and imagery (their second album, "Born Into Trouble as the Sparks Fly Upward", is a quote from the beginning of the book of Job).

I saw Toby Mac last year around this time, actually. I got snookered into a big Christian conference at Briarcrest College elsewhere in Saskatchewan. It was a horrible experience for the most part because I was surrounded with en-masse evangelism which is something I try to avoid at all costs because I do not believe in it at all. On the other hand, Toby Mac was fun and so was MuteMath.

huh. i like this thread! i've never really gotten to listen to very much christian music, i've only been exposed to the very popular stuff...most of which is not good at all. so at the moment i like david crowder and watermark. but that's about it. the trouble is, it's not really music non-christians would listen to. i think that's probably why a lot of mainstream christian music sucks. the whole industry becomes incredibly insular, because you're just making music for christians, who aren't actually looking for good music as they are looking for something upbeat and encouraging (and safe for little kids to listen to too) that worships jesus.

religious tangent: worshiping jesus isn't about saying the words, 'I WORSHIP YOU JESUS PRAISE YOU JESUS.' it's about living out religion, like actually helping people and being humble and all that. actually the whole idea of this stuff is ridiculous. it's like if i asked you all on the forums to do the safety dance, and instead of actually doing it, you make music with words about how you're going to do the safety dance and how great the safety dance is, and you create all this merchandise with words printed on it about doing the safety dance, and you form a secret-society club with a few other people where you meet and just feel good together about being the only people who know that i told you to do the safety dance, and basically you do everything except you never actually do the safety dance. okay so this metaphor is super contrived, but in essence, wtf?

...so uh, back to christian music i guess. sorry. did anyone listen to derek webb's latest cd, mockingbird? because i really thought it was awful, but then it's getting a lot of good reviews. did i miss something? the lyrics are contrived and all the songs sound pretty much the same musically.

Something that should probably be mentioned: Christian =/= Jewish. There are many, some fairly large, differences, and looking for Christian music doesn't mean you'll be looking for Jewish music. But then, the thread starter could be looking for both, I just thought I'd mention it.

Ruyi, that might in fact be the best description of the absurdity of "worship" music that I've ever seen. I don't do the church thing all that much myself, but I've gone with my mom before, and between that and what I remember from when I was younger, one of the biggest things that always annoyed me about Christian music was that it seems like everyone in the genre is willing to sacrifice substance and style, and perhaps even any artistic integrity, for the sake of seeing who can repeat the same hackneyed cliches the greatest number of times before they have to move on to the next chord.  Speaking strictly from the standpoint of being a musician, and not even CONSIDERING the religious aspects of it, I've always been annoyed at the "fast food" feel that modern worship music has compared to some of the older hymns.  I don't know, maybe this is just another example of me being old and curmudgeonly, I just DETEST these so called "songs" that just repeat the same three lines over and over again.

Frankly, I find that argument to be somewhat bollocks. Or rather, it can be applied to more or less any music.

There is good worship music, there is bad worship music. But applying this argument when discussing singing about God is like discussing the 'absurdity' of singing a song about fucking instead of sleeping with your girlfriend.

There are tons of shit worship songs. I play in the band at my church simply because it keeps me on my toes as a musician, so I basically gig once a week, more or less every week, learning new material more or less every week. There are lots of songs that I hate, and lots that I like. This applies to pop, rock, punk, hardcore, anything you can name.

You're more or less making the same 'music ain't as good as it used to be...' statement. Or at least, that's how it comes across to me, feel free to elaborate.

I used to be all christian-y before I realized how blazingly hipocritical most christians are. Anyway, during my time in youth groups and going to christian concets and music festivals, there are only a few worth checking out (depending on your taste in style and amount of "worshippyness"). Worshippyness will be ranked on a 1-10 scale, with 10 being gospel.

Rock/Alternative
Skillet - 5 - Recommended Album: Collide
Pillar - 6 - Recommended Album: Fireproof
Thousand Foot Krutch - 4 - Recommended Album: Phenominon
Switchfoot - 3 - Recommended Album: The Beautiful Letdown

Hard Rock
Day of Fire - 6 - Recommended Album: Day of Fire
Project 86 - 4 - Recommended Album: Drawing Black Lines
Demon Hunter - 4 - Recommended Album: Demon Hunter

Worship/Soft Rock
Michael W. Smith - 10 - Recommended Album: This is Your Time
Newsboys - 10 - Recommended Album: Shine...The Hits
Audio Adrenaline - 8 - Recommended Album: Hit Parade

Hip-Hop
tobyMac - 7 - Recommended Album: Momentum
DC Talk - 9 - Recommended Album: Jesus Freak
Cross Movement - 8 - Recommended Album: The Human Emergency

If I had to pick one to listen to... Skillet, by far. They are probably the least christian sounding, they have a good Rock sound, and several songs that are just T-riffic.
