I woke up this morning with this song in my head, so it clearly has the be the Song of the Day. Classic metal. You either love it, or just don’t really get the appeal. It’s 1986, and the only Christian metal that most people are aware of is Stryper. But hairspray and over-the-top production was not all that Christian metal had to offer in ’86. The same year the glam kings released To Hell with the Devil, Saint was dishing out their best album, Time’s End (in fact, it’s in the top 5 Christian metal albums of all time, IMO). Lyrically, the whole album deals with eschatology, and more often than not focuses on the dark side of things–what happens after the rapture, environmental collapse, industrial catastrophe, Armageddon–no topic is off limits! It’s dark, brooding, and heavy! Teenage me was literally frightened by the album cover alone. “Steel Killer” is the closing track on the album and showcases what is so great about the whole work.
