Just like in the movies, Metal music carries messages that sometimes deliberately affects a believer’s belief or an atheist’s lack of belief.

There has been alot of disputes about Metal music affecting people’s religion, and alot of Metalheads argue that it’s untrue and that it’s just some negative propaganda lead by the POP music industry.

The fact is that there can be a negative effect in some Metal music, but certainly not all.

Aborted is a Metal band from Belgium, they fall in the Gore Death Metal genre and lately released a video in which they insult the Christian religion. Aborted may have a lot of fans most of whom might be Christians and they seem to tolerate the offence. That again is another big issue when Christians are accused to be too numb to stand against what offends them and Muslims are accused to be too sensitive to the issu , taking sometimes drastic measures, like banning ALL Metal.

Here’s the video from Aborted “The Origin of Disease”:

Check the lyrics here (the video carries the essential message).

Here’s how Christian Metal replies to that in their music and lyrics.

Lyrics:

I watched them murder and kill
Lot against the destroyed will
I watched a man ripped to shreds
Stench of rot does not offend
Create a theme, sell it how
Promiscuous, no consequence
Think of ways to shock us now
Good luck, I’ve seen it all

I will pay for this death and destruction
Just to know such things exist
I will pay for this death and destruction
Knowledge of evil paralysis
Overkill exposure

Cannibalistic destruction
Fanatical debauchery
Glorified infidelity
Show me death, show me lies
Show me unthinkable darkness
Programmed perversion of the worst kind

Show me death, show me lies
Show me unthinkable darkness
Show me death, show me lies

I will pay for this death and destruction
Just to know such things exist
I will pay for this death and destruction
Knowledge of evil paralysis
Overkill exposure

Guard my heart, guard my will
Think of ways to shock us now
Guard my heart, guard my will
Keep your death and lies

Guard my heart, guard my will
Think of ways to shock us now
Guard my heart, guard my will
Keep your death and lies
