P.O.D. - DoTM

P.O.D. is a Christian metal band from San Diego, California. They formed in 1992. P.O.D. stands for Payable On Death.

I like some of their stuff but a lot of their stuff I just can't seem to absorb. Their music is somewhere along the lines of rap-metal, most of which I don't like. In some ways, they remind me a bit of a toned down Christian version of Rage Against the Machine, only the vocalist sings more than he raps. I dunno, you can listen to them and judge for yourself, I'll put some videos up.

Here are some places you can read about them:
