While we're on the topic of Christian heavy metal then, how about some Saviour Machine:

There's also a slew of Christian black metal bands, which seems even more oxymoronic. Or unblack metal, as it can apparently be known.

As far as I am aware this is something to do with enabling proprietary content per browser. Firefox does this for you so it will work, it's enabled by default in newer versions of Vivaldi so it works there too, but in Chromium you still have to fiddle about with the settings for "protected content". I have personally never got Spotify web player to work in Chromium.

If you are using the Spotify client [as I do 99% of the time], a search for "LQ Metal Music List" should bring it up.

edit: search doesn't bring up "LQ Metal Music List", maybe if we wait for some time and it might come up in the search results.

Yes, hopefully you're right about that. If you're using the web player, simply select "Save to your library" from the three-dot menu under the LQ playlist picture, and it will appear in the playlists for your client too.

Lysander yes, they are quite commercial/social oriented a bit like the winners of Mongolia's Got Talent.

Often overlooked compared to their other albums/tracks.
Black Sabbath - Gypsy

As you like - some of it still qualifies way further up my metal spectrum than a bunch of MA listings, but, thread focus noted.

I haven't heard Stryper myself, but will check them out now and will add them to the playlist later.
...or maybe don't...

Try some Megadeth or Iron Maiden instead.

That is a great track - it's one of those albums that is often overlooked, you're right, and I had too. I hadn't heard it. I think this is worth including this too from the Tony Martin period because it's a slightly different style, a lot more 80s-sounding, great track though:

And here's something a little bit earlier - Budgie - great metal/hard rock from the early '70s:

Actually I thought that Stryper was pretty good.

Iron Maiden has always been a secret garden to me. I have never been able to get into them - but that was a really good track. I might give the rest of the album a listen. That Megadeth was great too, the only albums I've heard from them are Countdown to Extinction and Youthanasia, the latter got played absolutely to death when I was a teen.

I had Eternal Idol on cassette but it got eaten by a dodgy deck in my mates car and I never replaced it.

Maybe some Venom will help with that.

I think Number of the Beast is a more coherent album overall, and i'd probably recommend starting there if you want more.

I think CtE is the latest Megadeth I own. Have heard some of the more recent but it didn't grab me.

I think you should give Youthanasia a go, the songwriting is very good, albeit formulaic and a little different from their thrashier stuff. Take a listen to "Reckoning Day", for instance. It's a mixture of different catchy melodic sequences excellently carried out. It starts off with a descending guitar riff, three notes which are just two semitones apart, which then changes register a few times in the verse along with Dave's vocals. As the melody climbs the register the tension increases, but the melody then tumbles down the scale before the chorus, providing mild relief. Now the chorus riff is interesting: the melody climbs the scale again and then descends while Dave's vocals simultaneously ascend. There are four [lyrical] lines in the chorus, the third being the most interesting with the trill on the words "getting even" providing a climatic distinction from the lines before.

A great way to retain listener interest in a chorus is to have a clear distinction between low and high notes on an appealing melody and Dave knows this, the catchy songwriting is masterful, and if you have four lines, you can make the second or third the most distinct for maximum effect.

For another example of this technique, check out "Ocean Land (The Revelation)" by Orphaned Land:

Mmmm - still not doin' it for me... (and the rest of the album).

While technically excellent and well (probably over) produced, it just strikes me as sounding like someone who is now making a living, rather than having something to say (edit: or maybe "prove", in his case ).

Don't wanna dis your "in" to Megadeth, but I think it's not my thing.

Actually I'm not a big Megadeth fan at all, and that's the first time I've listened to the album for about... twenty years, but I can appreciate the songwriting.

I get your point about it sounding like someone doing it to make a living, especially in the context of their earlier stuff. I'd never heard Peace Sells... until today and it's pretty damn impressive. I haven't heard Rust in Peace either, so I suppose I should give that a go too.
