Barren Cross

Barren Cross was one of the earlier Christian metal bands, arriving on the scene at a time where most of the world thought that Christian metal started and ended with Stryper. Rock For The King's Priest-style heaviness proved that a band didn't have to be poppy to be Christian, though their lyrics were if anything more preachy and tended to diminish their appeal among secular listeners. Though no official breakup was ever announced, the band was pretty much finished by around 1990 or so, reuniting several years later for the "Rattle Your Cage" release in 1994.

I think no one will deny that the brand vocals by Mike Lee (Michael Drive) are so similar to the Bruce Dickinson's one, and also the music is very Maiden-ish
