I addressed the topic of secular classical music in a large post I made on page 4 of this thread. I don't understand people who think that it's wrong to listen to secular popular music but have no problem with secular classical music. To me, it's a double standard. If we're going to continue discussing classical music, please go read my post on page 4 before we go any further.

I listen to both secular and Christian, as long as it's good, as stated before.

But what really gets me is people (mostly uneducated parents) will say there's nothing wrong with classical music, and turn around and freak when you mention 'heavy metal'. I'm a 'metal' artist myself, and I am also an avid listener of classical, blues, and jazz. If parents could get past the steriotypical screaming metal nonsense they've been fed by the media, the world would be a better place.

Also, listen to Dream Theater, Megadeth, In Flames, or Iced Earth. It's classical music, with distortion and vocals. One of the funniest things I've ever done is while practicing for music at church, I just take the chords from a Metallica song and transpose it to the piano. The pastor walks in, saying "That's really pretty, who is that?"..."Oh, it's just Metallica."

LOL. Thats great! But what you said about heavy metal not being about screaming, give me a break. Thats all you hear the vocalist doing in heavy metal is screaming. You can hardly hear what he says.

Most heavy metal isn't about screaming, thats just hardcore.....There's a differance. Listen to zAo then listen to Project 86.....Much different.

You obviously haven't heard any of the bands I listed. I am into all types of metal (excluding hardcore, rapcore, and nu-metal), and no, they do not constantly scream.

Another small victory! Now just to convince the rest of Christendom. That's another 2 billion or so.

Well, I suppose every little bit helps! Christian music would be so much better if they learned from secular musicians (and learned music period).
