MASSES OF HEAVY METAL CHRISTIAN IN FINLAND Christian heavy metal is a subgenre within the metal that is the taste of many people. In Finland they have decided to go a step further and create a heavy metal mass. christian heavy metal music videos
The Finnish metal
I am more of other world music, so my knowledge of Finnish metal is limited. However, he was in Finland when his heavy metal band of monsters, Lordi, was champion of the European song festival: Eurovision. christian heavy metal music videos

Since then in the blog we have a category of Finnish music that was very active for a few years thanks to our collaborator J.A. Vidania There you will find references to many Finnish heavy metal bands and critics of their records. Now we use it more for Finnish musical particularities, like its traditional instrument the Kantele. christian heavy metal music videos
What we did not have until now was a reference to Christian heavy metal.
Christian heavy metal masses
Through an article by thisis FINLAND I learn that a priest has been traveling through Finland and organizing Christian heavy metal masses in different cities. We talked about religion in Finland in passing on the blog. christian heavy metal music videos
We will dedicate some other post to him – after all it is an important part of his life for many Finns, and they do not have the same religion as the Spanish-speaking countries – but this priest and his Christian heavy metal masses play another league. christian heavy metal music videos
Since 2006, priest Haka Kekäläinen enters the church accompanied by a six-member heavy metal band. The priest also has metal pints: dark hair to the shoulders and goatee, but while giving mass leaves the leather jacket in the wardrobe and carries the habits. christian heavy metal music videos
The religious hymns do not change their lyrics, the rhythm is simply changed, and many people – even non-religious – come to the church to see this curious mass with Christian heavy metal. Interestingly, none of the members of the band is religious, but they do their utmost to make their performances a religious experience. christian heavy metal music videos
The first mass was in the capital of Finland, in the spectacular church of Temppeliaukio, which was filled to the flag and some people had to stay outside. Since that day before an audience of 1,300 people, the priest and his Christian heavy metal band have made 95 masses throughout Finland and recorded an album, which sold out the 8,000 copies they made. christian heavy metal music videos
The plans for the future of this peculiar priest, who has not raised almost criticism within the Lutheran church because Finland is a metal loving country, is to make – starting in 2014 – a weekly mass in Helsinki and record a new album. Will you bring your Christian heavy metal mass to the Chapel of Silence? christian heavy metal music videos

Is METAL Christian metal really?
The article below was written by Vanessa Cruz for the magazine Amauta, agrees with many aspects that we defend as metalheads and anti-Christians, a greeting christian heavy metal music videos
Is METAL Christian metal really?
On several occasions more out of curiosity than because of that damn healthy culture that apparently attacks us without mercy on women, more than on men, I have eaten soy meat and I have even had the misfortune to taste soy milk; christian heavy metal music videos
However, despite its misleading name and the obvious difference in texture, flavor and content, I have always known that what I am eating is NOT meat or milk; and the same analogy can be applied when we speak of the “Christian metal”.
I seriously believe that the time has come to once and for all clarify or at least draw a line in the arena, the line that divides the true metal from Christian ideological propaganda. christian heavy metal music videos
In recent years I have seen and heard how little by little the Christian ideology has infiltrated into the metal thanks to the use of guttural voices, lyrics that deliberately do not mention the name of Christ and the open mind of many fanatics (and that although not we like to admit it, the world metalhead “guild” is much more open-minded than we think … we just have to see how we name “God of metal” to a homosexual … christian heavy metal music videos
Rob Halford); What does not fit in my head is how many simply accept bands that are explicitly Christian, forgetting how the Catholic Church and its retarded fanatics have persecuted and demonized metal since its inception. It is one thing to be tolerant and another to have no pride. christian heavy metal music videos
For those of us who have grown up listening to Iron Maiden, Metallica, Exodus, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, King Diamond we have always known that real metal is not only determined by how heavy, hard and scandalous the instruments are, but by their dissidence, for that spirit of freedom and opposition to the established norms that it brings in each of its lyrics and in the attitude that not only the musicians bring to the stage but that same spirit of brotherhood that exists in all those who enjoy a good headbang .christian heavy metal music videos
Now, the “Christian metal” is nothing more than a new form of indoctrination, maybe the musicians behind these bands do not have a specific and conspiratorial agenda to take more sheep to the church, but with the simple fact of dedicating his songs to “God” or whoever his invisible friend is, are poisoning the true spirit of what heavy metal is. christian heavy metal music videos
How quickly we forget how the church, as the Catholic religion has persecuted us and condemns us in each pulpit preceded by one of its many homosexual pedophiles who call priests; how quickly we forget as Christian Protestant groups tried to ruin the goat of Cannibal Corpse a couple of years ago, or as the clown of Luis Fishman with his always fascist attitude trying to confiscate all the merchandise related to metal after christian heavy metal music videos
La Fosforera, or as that used hygienic towel that calls itself La Extra Newspaper whenever it can, it demonizes and ridicules us in the name of the good Catholic customs of this country of hypocrites. christian heavy metal music videos
In short, the Christian metal disc can not be metal for more heavy, no matter how guttural their voices are for the simple fact that it belongs to the established order of society, because it belongs to an ideology that if it could have never let the genre it will develop as it has done today; and that having failed he seeks to infiltrate the metal as he did with rock, to destroy from within that spirit of rebellion that makes this music so attractive, all to become pathetic followers of conformist bands that preach obedience and submission to a ” liberator “to be invisible. christian heavy metal music videos
If we allow Christian bands to infiltrate this genre that we love so much, we will soon see how our musicians begin to make promises of virginity, campaigns against drugs, advertisements for Coca Cola, songs of political campaigns, background music for commercials and their lyrics they go from challenging to simple clichés pronounced by little pipis in the mall. christian heavy metal music videos
PS You have to know how to differentiate between Christian bands and metal musicians who are believers, the first one writes in order to make their ideology known and spread, the second is an individual who makes music and who in his private life is religious but who does not use his music to make religious propaganda ..christian heavy metal music videos
