    Many years ago a christian youth worker gave me an album by the Christian Hard Rockers Sacred Warrior to listen to. I was convicted by This Jesus Christ they were singing about and went with my friend to church to see what this Christian idea was all about. Three weeks later I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour. As a result I like the ministry of the Christian Hard Rock / Heavy Metal scene.

    Checking up on my search engine on Sacred Warrior, I have found they are running a support ministry for Christian hard rockers somewhere in Chicago. The early Church witnessed in the market places where ther would have been performing arts going on. Archeologists in Israel have uncovered several amplitheaters which no doubt entertained the people. Christian rock music is a powerfull way to lead people to Jesus Christ. I hope the new ministry of Sacred Warrior is a success. I think the church in general, should be more open to performing arts in order to spread its message.

    I remember them and Barren Cross and HALO and all those bands.

    It's funny, but the bands that were always the biggest on preaching the Gospel and who treated their bands as a ministry were the hardest in style.

    Bloodgood was another one. I remember those guys came to our church and teh afternoon before the show, they went to South Street and stood on a corner talking to the punks who would hang out there.

    They led a couple of kids to the Lord and I remember the kids coming to the show and bringing their friends.

    If you ever get a chance to see their "Alive in America" video, check it out. It's kind of a "Mr. Roboto"-style stage production and it's a little hokey, but it's very powerful.

    I agree.

    Sacred Warrior - good stuff. I was really into Barren Cross, they were my favourite musically. Dale Thompson of Bride was my favourite heavy metal preacher and they're still going.

    I was into all those 80's Metal bands and they were influencial in my conversion.

    Jacob.
