Metal Hammer magazine expounds its views on Christian metal music

THE LATEST issue of Metal Hammer magazine includes a short article headed Christian Metal. It name checks a few bands including Norma Jean, Extol, Living Sacrifice and Zao, comments that Black Sabbath's "After Forever" is one of the first Christian metal tracks, and then suggests that "very few Christian metal bands are nutjob fundamentalists who regard The Bible as the infallible word of God - though there are a few".
