At the TurnOfTheMillennium, RapMetal band P.O.D. achieved ranks in the Billboard 200 and frequently appeared on Creator/{{MTV}} alongside their secular peers though Tourniquet, Mortification, and SaviourMachine had toured with their counterparts (controversy ensues with each.)

) MTV banned Tourniquet's landmark video as it had too much NightmareFuel as they became the advocate for the voiceless.


Since P.O.D.'s success, Christian bands such as Music/{{Underoath}}, ''Norma Jean'' and Music/TheDevilWearsPrada have gained enormous popularity in the burgeoning {{Metalcore}} scene. Tourniquet challenges the riddle that ThrashMetal invokes with their fanbase, AuthorAppeal, as Circle of Dust also invokes this with Industrial Metal, as does Mortal. Generation taps Trouble for Brutal Reality and the core members of the other project invokes PhilipKDick and TwilightZone for audio sampling. Some would try to dismiss some bands as trying to sound dark. They would never guess when one hears Tourniquet they invoke LightIsNotNice, plays with HumiliationConga in A Dog's Breakfast even lampshades FlippingTheBird as some joke is the song that Christian Thrashers blast when they want to give the gesture. Ultimatum had been photographed with thrash luminaries overkill as the [[http://www.nolifetilmetal.com lead singer]] is a Historian.

'''Christian Metal''' is a particularly controversial offshoot of ChristianRock which began in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and has gradually gained popularity since. Basically, any HeavyMetal band with UsefulNotes/{{Christian|ity}}-based lyrics or Christian members can be categorized as this. American bands such as Resurrection Band and Petra are usually credited with pioneering the genre, while Stryper were arguably the first Christian Metal band to garner mainstream attention. Other bands, such as Tourniquet and Australia's Mortification, incorporated a heavier style and have become staples in the underground Metal scene.

Several Metal bands such as Attack Attack!, Music/AvengedSevenfold, He Is Legend, Music/KillswitchEngage, Music/{{Pentagram}}, Trouble, Music/{{Candlemass}} and even Music/BlackSabbath have included Biblical themes in their lyrics, but are generally [[NotChristianRock not considered Christian bands]].
