My 10 Favorite Christian Metal Songs For A Workout

Mar 07, 2015

Metal is the best music to workout to for me.  The aggressive breakdowns, hard hitting riffs, solos, growls, screams and clean vocals push me to give everything I’ve got!  There are so many Christian metal bands that I’ve listened to throughout the years and I’m sure I’ve worked out to every metal album I have.  Although my favorites will change from time to time, these 10 songs are a must in my work out routine.  Here are my 10 favorite Christian metal songs that push me while I work out.

10. Brutal Warfare, Mortification

This is an old one from 1990!  These guys are one of the front runners of Christian metal and this song is proof!

Favorite Lyric

“Put on the full armor of God.  Stand against the devil.  We are not fighting men, but evil forces of a dark age.”

9. Purify, Six Feet Deep

This one is digging into the vault!  Many people don’t know these guys but back in the 90’s these guys delivered some good music.

Favorite Lyric

“Pull the wool from my eyes: sensitize me.  Cut the cancer from inside: purify me.  Send Your cleansing rain: saturate me.  Burn away this pain: drench and drain me.”

8. White Washed, August Burns Red

Favorite Lyric

“You ask me to be blameless.  You ask me to be blameless, but who are you to decide what's right?  Don't say another word!  Don't say another word, you've crossed the line!”

7. Wake Up, Wolves At The Gate

This song’s lyrics are awesome, speaking truth to many who pretend to be “Christian”.

Favorite Lyric

“The world is lining you up and bids you to come to live on the edge till your heart it is numb.  Lining you up and bids you farewell, to look like the righteous but still live like hell.”

6. A Call To The Faithful, Inhale Exhale

This is also a song about those who live 2 different lives and pretend to be “Christian”.

Favorite Lyric

“You live two lives and never think about your actions.  Who is the
one you try to please?  Yourself!”

5. Calloused, Gideon

Favorite Lyric

“Calloused and cold, not afraid to fail.  Life's not a bed of roses, it's a bed of nails.”

4. Endseekers, Oh Sleeper

Favorite Lyric

“What do my eyes perceive?  It's so contrary to the promise that secured us and you’re nowhere to be found.  You can't just up and leave!  Abandonment is the thumbprint of that cur who just hit the ground!  You lead us straight to hell!  This is hell!  This is hell!”

3. Bloodwork, Living Sacrifice

Favorite Lyric

“Begin, break the skin, salvation quickly driven in.  Pride in fracture; in subjection.  A new supply running red with purpose.  Nothing less than flawless in design.”

2. Fearless, For Today

This is one of my favorite Christian metal songs.  It’s about standing strong.  It’s about not being afraid because we have God, we bear His image.  Satan has no power over us!”

Favorite Lyric

“We bear the mark of the uncreated God so what should we fear?  We bear the scars of the holy risen Son so tell me what should we fear?  Every threat is hollow because our victory is already set in stone!”

Bonus Lyric

“He (Satan) can't stop the kingdom.  You'll see him bow at the throne on Judgment Day!  So let the devil come!  We are fearless!  Fearless!”

1. Murderer, Impending Doom

This song is so heavy!  Brooke’s scream at the beginning pushes me to try my hardest.  Murderer is a two-fold song.  The first part is about the Antichrist and how he will fall.  The second part is about how our sin put Christ on the cross.  We are murderers but His blood washes us clean!  Here are the lyrics for this awesome song!

A coming fight is on the horizon
Violent love, we can’t hide from
A broken man watches vainly
To a world that cannot save us
He prays for the first time
He cries out for a chance and justice
Soon a great light will see
The people of the darkness
Of the darkness

We have to realize
A reality beyond our eyes
In an unseen world
The Antichrist is gonna rise and we'll
Have to realize
A reality beyond our eyes
In an unseen world
The Antichrist will fall

The future written in the past
A prophecy of everything ending

I, am, a murderer
Wash me clean

We have to realize
A reality beyond our eyes
In an unseen world
The Antichrist is gonna rise and we'll
Have to realize
A reality beyond our eyes
In an unseen world
The Antichrist will fall
The Antichrist will fall

Evil cost the world
A murder paid it all [3x]

I, am, a murderer
Wash me clean [repeats till end]

Conclusion

These 10 songs are always in my playlist when I workout.  They are heavy and packed with good lyrics!  What are some of your favorite songs to workout too?  God bless!
