Stryper on tour in 1987 to support their third album, To Hell with the Devil, which reached platinum status at a time when most Christian bands were going unheard in the secular market.[1]
Underoath, whose 2006 album, Define the Great Line, debuted on the Billboard 200 Chart at No. 2, the highest debut for a Christian album since 1997.[2]

This is a list of Christian metal bands, including bands that played Christian metal at some point in their careers. Some bands might not be listed because of a disputed status as a "Christian band."

Christian metal, also known as white metal,[3] is heavy metal music with a Christian message. Christian metal is regarded more of a concept rather than a genre since it has no specific musical characteristics.[4] Christian metal emerged in the late 1970s as a means of evangelization to the wider heavy metal music scene, and was pioneered by the American Resurrection Band and Swedish Jerusalem.[citation needed] Los Angeles' Stryper achieved wide success in the 1980s, otherwise the genre was mostly ignored by the mainstream. California's Tourniquet and Australia's Mortification led the movement in the 1990s.[citation needed] The metalcore groups Underoath, Demon Hunter, As I Lay Dying, and Norma Jean (dubbed by Revolver Magazine as "The Holy Alliance") brought some mainstream attention to the movement in the first decade of the 21st century, achieving ranks in the Billboard 200.[5]
