Although some hard-liners feel it's the devil's music and has no place in the Lord's house of worship, more moderate (and less fundamentalist) types feel it's just another avenue for paying tribute to Yahweh.

Both bands will be in attendance at next weekend's hellaciously holy Rage Music Festival at Castles 'n' Coasters near Metrocenter. More than two dozen Christian-rock outfits will perform in raucous reverence for the Almighty, including The Letter Black, Spoken, Sent by Ravens, and others.

The worship wingding takes place on Saturday, January 15, and Sunday, January 16. Hit up this site for complete details.
