doesn't this genre seem like it'll never take off: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_hardcore
i bought one of their records by accident once, horrible.
Christian hardcore is sort of a big deal in North America. It's been about for getting on for 20 years now and labels like Tooth and Nail specialise in it.
It's certainly more commercially viable (okay, a concept that is anathema to a lot of hardcore types) than other variants of the genre, particularly the anarcho-crust side of things.
once had some NJ fan prattle on about christianity for ages to me at some hardcore gig in nottingham years ago. I told him I was pleased that they'd found the love of jesus in their hearts, but they were still a shit band. He wasn't best pleased.
its not that much different
There are also xtian death metal bands like Mortification and Tourniquet.
And tell me what they are like. Something about a Christian form of metal turns me off, regardless of the fact that it and Satanism are equally silly.
it's on the same level as harry and the potters or whatever that band was called.
