You can find a great list of a lot of the best Christian metal bands here:

http://www.christiananime.net/showthread.php?t=33161

There are few I would mention that aren't listed already in that other thread, like Harmony(power metal), Dalit (death/doom metal), and Ancient Plague (symphonic black metal).

My personal recommendations for death metal are as follows:

Extol - their style changes with every album, but IMHO every album is great in its own way; Undeceived is an awesome death metal album, so you should start with that one if you're looking for death metal in particular.

Sympathy - very solid death metal band.

Aletheian- technical and progressive death metal.

Miseration - this is not really a Christian band per se; some members are not Christians, but some are, including, Jani Stefanovic, a guy who is involved in several different Christian bands. On their first album, there is some Christian influence in the lyrics (because they are written by Jani), though it's not extremely overt. I don't have their second album and can't really vouch for its content. However, they do play some pretty good death metal.

I am not very well educated on the differences between the various types of metal, but here are a few albums that fall generally under the Metal genre umbrella. You can't really go wrong with any of them. I have linked each to a representative song:

Becoming the Archetype's Terminate Damnation (Technical Metal?)
Virgin Black's Requiem - Mezzo Forte (Opera Metal?)
Showbread's No Sir, Nihilism is not Practical (Raw Rock)
As Cities Burn's Son I Loved you at Your Darkest (Progressive Metal?)
Where an Eidolon, named night, on a black throne reigns upright.

YEAH! I loooove Christian metal.

Demon Hunter is really good BUT! I definitely reccommend Brian "Head" Welch. He was the guitarist for Korn but he became a christian and quit Korn (and drugs) and released a Christian metal album called Save Me From Myself. Its REALLY good. I listen to it a lot. :D

Yeah I don't like black metal much but Antestor is really good. I prefer their more melodic softer songs (Like "Depressed"... love that song) but whatever. Lyrically I really like them.

If you're into the screaming metalcore type stuff....

Why do most Christian metal bands sound the same though? I mean, if you search "metal"... you get all kinds of different forms (progressive, melodic, power, folk, death, black etc) Search "Christian metal bands" and they're usually either some kind of metalcore screaming stuff (which I can't stand) or black/death metal...

Yeah I know not ALL all are like that and there is a few good metal bands that do appeal to me and are Christian but... I always go down peoples list and it's always the same stuff. Christian metal needs more variety for metal heads with different tastes. Most of the Christian bands that try to play the type I like usually suck save maybe three. I'm still waiting for a Christian band to come along influenced by the likes of Blind Guardian, Kamelot, Symphony X, Edguy, Helloween, Freedom Call, Zonata etc... and then actually sounds good too (cause Narnia and Divinefire and the likes suck but at least they try). Or heck, bands that are influenced by like Ensiferum, Eluveitie, Wintersun, TYR, Korpiklaani, and Equilibrium.

I like power metal, but there are other genres I like more, so this is not something I'm extremely familiar with. However, I do know there are a ton of Christian power metal and neoclassical metal bands out there--not just Narnia and Divinefire. Theocracy I think you know already, but try Harmony (Sweden), Wingdom (Finland), Venia (Finland), Edgend (Israel), MYRATH (Tunisia), Future's End, Angel 7 (Ukraine), Sacred Warrior (Chicago), Seventh Avenue (Germany). In addition, if you browse to nordicmission.net and click on "heavy metal" on the left, you'll get a very long list of Christian heavy metal and power metal bands, most of which I haven't even heard of.

You might be interested in Orphaned Land, a progressive folk metal band from Israel.

As a caveat, since this is a genre that I don't listen to very often, I have heard very little by most of them and can't tell you which ones are really good.

Also: HB, and they sing in both English and Finnish. They're on iTunes with the albums Frozen Inside and Piikki lihassa (I mention these so that there is no mix-up with another band called HB).

I would probably recommend Demon Hunter like most of everyone else here has. :P They kick rear to next Tuesday!

Also, Living Sacrifice is a great band too :D They have a new album out called "The Infinite Order". They are screaming metal and they have been together since 1989, so they do have experience to make the screaming understandable and freaking awesome!

Just noticed thought i should point this out. Vanna is not a christian band they drop the F-bomb in there newest album a couple of times. They are what is now in the Hardcore culture as Straight edge at least lyrically. They have some very positive and christian sounding lyrics (minus the song the swear in XD)

A far as hard core metal goes, I can only recommend Demon Hunter. However, I would say Red and Skillet also fall under that catagory, I think. I love them. And for a change of pace, Flyleaf, especially their first CD is kinda halfway b/w regular rock and metal (the lead singer does have considerable screamer skillz: check out the song "I'm So Sick.")

I'll try to get as close to Dethklok's sound as I can with these despite only having heard a couple pieces of the songs "Awaken" and "Mermaider". I'm also going to try to stray away from most of the bands that everybody mentions.

A Thousand Times Repent
All That Remains (not technically Christian, but the vocalist/lyricist is, and it shows in the lyrics, especially on the "Fall of Ideals" album)
Amarna Reign (I'm not 100% sure if they're Christian or not, heard somewhere that they are)
At Battle's End
Bloodline Severed
Chicago Is Burning
Common Yet Forbidden
Frost Like Ashes
Grave Declaration
Grave Forsaken
Horsemen of the Apocalypse
I Built the Cross
Immortal Souls
Impending Doom
Mortal Treason
Norma Jean
On Solid Ground
The Showdown
Sleeping Giant
Soul Embraced
Virgin Black
War of Ages
With Blood Comes Cleansing

Go listen to A Thousand Times Repent and you'll see what i mean

Anyways
A Ghost Inside! (they are not christian but there new album Returners has a very good song called The Conflict. Its a song that deals with Christianity in The Hardcore scene and it has made me respect the band alot. Overall the album is super positive and a great album. There first album does drop the F-bomb so stick to returners)

freedom call, is not "christian" but the band members say that they are heavily influenced my christians, and that they believe in God, and then there is impellitteri, chris impellitteri is one of the fastest guitar players in the world, they have on non christian band member i think, so they're like flyleaf, they are christians in a metal band, not a "christian metal band" but some of their older stuff has some VERY strong chritian lyrics!

I love Freedom Call. They're one of my favorite bands... No they aren't Christian but you're right, there songs are VERY positive and some could be seen as Christian songs if you're looking at it from that perspective.

Listen to their song "Flame in the Night The song is epic power metal at it's best and the lyrics are pretty positive and sound like they could come from a Christian band. Stuff like this puts me in a good mood when I'm feeling bummed.

yeah i found an interview on the internet and they said they have christian families and that they believe in God and it is good to stay positive, also look up the song starchild is is obviously talking about Jesus. besides one "f-word" in the newest album (it's in the song called a perfect day) all their music is "clean" (as far as i know) i HIGHLY recommend them if you like power metal, or symphonic metal or prog metal
