Christian Metal

  • Originated in the late 1980's in the U.S.A.
  • Evanescence used to be classed as a Christian Metal band however after a while the band decided they didn't want to be branded as that so they got Christian music stores to take them off.
  • Stryper - were the first openly Christian band to gain mainstream recognition. They got a lot of their influences from glam metal and had big hair and wore tight catsuits. They mainly produced performance music videos. 
  • Underoath - 'Writing On The Walls' they produce mainly concept  and performance videos. Writing on the walls is set in a dolls house. It includes jerky camera movements, people with grey faces so they don't look real, people out of proportion and at certain points throughout the video the front man grabs onto the camera. The colour tones are almost sepia, confined spaces are used to create lots of energy and are used just generally to make the video surreal unsettling and just strange. They had a very high budget video, however there won't be very many videos like this in the near future because budgets are being heavily cut and fast collapsing.
  • P.O.D. - Mainly produce concept and performance videos, they use white colour filters and use effects on the camera lens. Constant cuts back and forward cuts between the concept and performance aspect.
