best Christian power ballads

Recommended Posts

My favorite would be Believe, if that is considered a ballad.

I could only really say Stryper.

Never been big on the Christian bands and Soldiers Under Command attack was my first taste of Stryper purchased purely on seeing the cover of the record :)

I like their ballads, more than their heavier stuff.

Oh man... Stryper ballads are some of the worst ballads ever. In my opinion, anyway. Except "Lady."

 

 

Yeah, that's the craziest comment I have ever heard. No relevant band barred, Stryper have recorded the worst ballads of any hard rock band I know of. Their hard rock sound (minus the lyrics) was always great, but all their ballads before 'Lady' are absolutely awful. 'Lady,' however, is utterly brilliant.

I don't like that even a tiny little bit. Hate it, if I'm being honest...

I agree with everything except the last. I don't like it at all.

I just skipped through most of the imbedded vids to see if i was missing anything.

 

As expected not my thing at all and i would probably skip virtually every track (except maybe that Guardian track if i could imagine he wasnt singing about God).

 

The REZ song took the prize tho - truly horrific :(

Buddy, I prefer all of them to Heat's "all of nights". Even the queenish one from Impellitteri.

That HEAT song is one of their weaker but i would take it over virtually all of these.

QFT.

 

But if Holy Soldier's 'Crazy' is a ballad then I have a vagina, and I officially like a christian ballad. Because that's a great song, but it's not a ballad and thank christ it's not even a christian song. There are no christian lyrics in the song, thankfully, which help it be brilliant.

 

I don't know if it's been mentioned, but this is a great song;

Another meaningless and worse than all nights ballad with Rock's wailing over the place...

I always preferred "I'll Be Waiting for You," until Garden of Chaos was released, and then it was this:

Didn't even listen to the video, but now I've got "How Many Times" stuck in my head. That's how you know it's a great song.

    • Godd damm! I cun't even reed or spell animoore. It musst be an age thong, I'm getting cold. Title know corectered.
    • Darkhaus - When Sparks Ignite
    • I suppose, I never use that button but it makes sense 
    • I think most of us browse this site using the "Unread Content" button, and we don't always see what sub-forum each thread is posted in. So it never hurts to clarify.  Also, a lot of these guys are pretty dumb, and they need all the help they can get. ;}
    • Not earth-shattering as far as innovation, but the album is very solid musically. A good listen.
    • Received this in the post today...and for me it was a disappointment upon hearing it. Purchased based on the first track released and that I like the two Seven cds,with the debut being top of the class,but this is has a few country type songs which don't sit with me at all...if I'd have heard this disc before I bought it I very much doubt ..or in fact I can definitely say I wouldn't,really disappointed in it.
    • I would agree with that,it was a classy album,full of great tunes
    • Cool! I figured if it's posted in here I won't have to specify that they're Christian only
    • Closest thing I've seen to the point I was going to make. Except, Nordic Union have two bog-average albums and neither would be a good Eclipse album - not even close, imho.  Anyway, for me, there is no doubt in the world that Eclipse's biggest issue is that for a period there for a few years, Martensson was more or less single-handedly writing about a dozen albums per year for every man and his dog. He was just everywhere and it was pretty obvious that was an issue. Some of it was great - I still think the Toby Hitchcock debut is the best album that Martensson has ever written, full stop. And the WET stuff is excellent too, thanks to it being collaborative. But a lot of it was already getting tired early on, such as the poor Ammunition and Nordic Union albums, and that female fronted hard rock band I forget the name of. He was just spreading himself too thin and sadly it's finally come to really show on an Eclipse album. Which is the real shame of it all.  I think the new album is a solid album, but as Glen says above, the best song on it is more or less completely identical to songs on previous albums. It's just got some different lyrics, but otherwise just the same song.  It's a massive ask and not going to happen, but the best thing that could happen for Eclipse is that Martensson just didn't involve himself in any projects for the next two years and concentrate on making good music with Eclipse. Won't happen, though. Also, the different production's been mentioned too - not a fan. It's not offensive, but it just doesn't sound as good as previous albums. 
    • I thought their debut album was excellent. An album that grew on me with pretty much every single spin. I also found a unique-ness in them that is hard to find these days. Great melodies. Very much looking forward to hearing what they come up with next.
