This Easter week we hunt for the overlap of Christian traditions in heavy metal, with songs by Christian bands, anti-Christian blasphemers, and nondenominational metal bands that pull fire and brimstone from Bible stories. Music by Black Sabbath, Trouble, Extol, Stryper, Slayer, Deicide, Cronos, Vengeance, Metallica, Manowar, Desolate Tomb, and more. Know your Roots!
