Rock music is not all about noise, hatred, anger, and violence. There are rock bands that are creating music for love, others as a way of protest and expression of opinions about the world's social problems, others to uplift the human spirit by sending messages of motivation, courage and support, and there are others who are creating not just rock but heavy metal music to spread the message of God, the message of Christ's passion and love for the humanity, and the message of faith and worship. Sure you thought that heavy metal music is only associated with the darkness and violence but these bands will prove you wrong, so if you wanna have a rockin' holy week without corrupting the true meaning of the Lenten season, then here are the top 10 christian metal bands who can make you realize that you can worship God in whatever ways or type of music you do, as long as you're doing it for the love of God.

Disciple - God save us all

Emery - Walls

The Devil wears Prada - Born to lose

15 Great Rock Songs for Graduation

Image from
March is the time of the year when the kids from kindergarten to the teens in highschool and college are entering a transition in their lives. One chapter ends and another begins: GRADUATION. They're gonna start a new life, have new things to learn, and finish the school stuffs to bravely face the reality of the world. Some may succeed, others will be left still struggling but fighting to survive, but always remember that graduation is not the end, it is just the beginning of life with full of challenges. You will face a lot of obstacles as you take your journey to your goal. But fear not because somewhere along the way, you'll meet people who'll be of help to you, your friends will be there, your family, and God will always be with you to guide you and walk with you. You may fail and fall but you'll always have the chance to get up, fight, and beat all the hardships that you may go through. It will always be your choice to be a winner or a loser in life. Failure isn't the end; it is just an experience of a wrong path so you can find the right one. When you're on the verge of giving up, always remember that Thomas Edison went through 10,000 failures while inventing the light bulb and he eventually found the right way to give light to the bulb. It was a triumphant success! Here are my roundup of 15 great rock and alternative graduation songs you can celebrate with on your graduation. Congratulations!
