(I'll start: )
Disciple has some hard hitting and Biblically clear lyrics. I especially like the track 'Battle Lines'. It's all put over with hard rock, and the effect is like as if it's so sure and certain that there is no argument.
xspinningisfun suggested I start a fresh thread.
So who likes the Christian bands Disciple and Skillet?
What do you like about them? what don't you like about them?
We have had a discussion on this awhile back and I for one do not like contempory Christian music.
IMO it is trying to incorporate "worldly" music beats and words into Christiainty.
Sparrow: Are they Christian hard rock, too? or how would you describe them?
Let me know if you like them, farouk. You Tube should have many of their songs.

Major: Thanks a lot for your comment. In the end I would be hard pressed to sort out between what is subjective and objective in assessing music styles. I wouldn't know how to begin, personally. To me it seems ultimately subjective; everyone has likes and dislikes, of course, but I would set great store on the lyrics, whether they are God honoring.
You are correct.........it is only my opinion.
Who are your favorites, farouk?
Sorry, I thought it was already basically taken as read that I like Disciple and Skillet, especially Disciple.
The track Battle Lines by Disciple is so Biblically based in its lyrics and reinforced by good sound, that it communicates truth very effectively, I think.
(I do also appreciated older hymns.)
That's my fault -- I forgot to include "beyond Disciple and Skillet."
I also love old hymns.
