Underground Christian Hardcore and Hip-Hop

Here's a pretty old legacy post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 21 years ago, in 2001, on the World Wide Web.

Lauren Sandler explores the underground Christian hardcore and hip-hop scenes in the Village Voice. The article is not only a fascinating piece of sociology of religion, but also of personal interest to me: I have a cousin who played on the underground Christian metal scene during the 1980s and 1990s. He was into death metal and thrash rather than the hardcore/punk scene, but from what I can tell it’s basically the same dynamics.

    You should try to listen to a blindside, or Dead Poetic, Living sacrifice, Zao, or Officer negative.

    No one has heard of He is Legend, but they are probably my favorite band. They’re hardcore, melodic screamo, amazing vocals. Other than them, I love Dead Poetic and Showbread. “Mouth Like a Magazine” by Showbread is one of the best songs of all time.
