stylistic origins: hardcore punk / Christian punk
cultural origins: late 20th
Christian hardcore is a subgenre of hardcore punk primarily distinguished by its lyrical focus on Christian themes and values, although former Burden of a Day guitarist Bryan Honhart has suggested that the genre also possesses sonic distinctions.
Bands such as The Crucified, Focused, and No Innocent Victim are considered progenitors of the movement. In recent years, Demon Hunter and The Chariot have gained considerable popularity among fans of the genre, while metalcore bands such as Underoath, As I Lay Dying, and Norma Jean have served as mainstream representatives of the genre.
