|Top 10 Thrash Metal Bands|
A brief list of 10 absolute Thrash Metal bands.
Wow. Just wow. These guys take speed to a ridiculous level and they do it
so well and with such force, brutality and skill that one simply can't call it
ridiculous. They are incredibly tight, faster than god knows what, more
brutal than any other Thrash Metal band without it being too much and just
fucks every band that ever said they were fast up the ass. Darkness
Descends is probably my favorite pure Thrash Metal album, be sure to check
them out if you haven't heard of them. "Too fast, my ass!"
I wish I could place this band on first place because they are truly an amazing
Metal act but they are simply not tight enough, doesn't have enough worthy
a higher rank and had some less appealing releases in the 90's as every band had
whatever reason... But nevertheless a charismatic band that didn't drink beer in
Area in the earl days, but blood in an highly industrialized Germany which gave
more serious and brutal sound. They've gone back to their roots recently and are
very good job.
Pick up Illusions/Chemical Exposure and shut up.
It's fuckin' Slayer! Probably the most influential Thrash Metal band ever.
grown to be less favorable with the latest releases but the legacy they've left
behind is pure gold. Although repeatedly overrated by fanboys and critics alike,
Reign In Blood, South Of Heaven and Hell Awaits are true classics, the most
band of the big four ends at fourth place.
This band is fucking majestic. I don't even care is it's not ultra aggressive,
it's one of my
favorite bands and still going strong.
German Thrash Metal at its finest, Sodom has stayed true to the genre even
through the 90's and released two incredible records back in the day, Agent
Orange and Persecution Mania. Some songs just have a tendency to sounds very
mush the same and it's a shame because they are really gifted. I get shills as
Angelripper whispers "Blas..." into the microphone in that charismatic German
accent and the band explodes into Blasphemer, haha.
Man, this band is truly a fun band. They are fast, aggressive and loud and
along with Slayer created the image of Thrash Metal back in the day with their
partying habits and take no prisoner attitude, especially when dealing with
Bonded By Blood is one of the greatest Thrash Metal album and a true pioneer.
I'm not too fond of the so called "big four" of Thrash. Sure, I love Slayer and
Metallica's early releases simply because they are awesome but you've
probably heard this millions of times before, so let's just get to the point...
Yeah, you know the drill: Dave Mustaine joins Metallica, writes half an album
for them and is kicked out, stolen of his material to feed what was to become
the biggest band of all time. He is not happy. He is angry. And anger is what
fueled him as he took revenge by forming his own band and releasing an
album of pure hatred, Killing Is My Business. Would you really call this thrash
though? The recognizable beat isn't prominent at all... It's fast, yes, but it's
really more complex that fast... but you know what? this IS Thrash Metal
because it's fueled by anger and hatred which give it an aggressive sound.
Peace Sells focused more on complexity and Dave was taking full use of his
skills, but it's still fueled by anger, so is SFSGSW. Rust In Peace is a complex
Thrash masterpiece and the hatred is not very prominent. But why am I
mentioning it then? Because it's fucking awesome. Megadeth kicks Metallica's
ass any day of the week nowadays anyways, but you've heard this way too
There's some clear Dark Angel influences in this American extreme Thrash Metal
it's fast, it's aggressive and it's fucking awesome - whoever said Thrash was
to be much more than a thousand BPM anyway?! Unfortunately they had too few
released to be ranked higher and disbanded in the beginning of the 90's, so they
never had to face the Metal band fiascoes of the 90's, but that might be a
Yes, you read it - "M E T A L L I C A". It's the band everybody loves to hate,
prime example of a band that betrayed their fans, sold out and became the
posers that they at first hated. how many times have you heard that again?
Because I read about it or hear about it almost every. Single. Fucking. Day. If
on internet forums, in school, or my friends talk about it or whatever. But I
disagree. Sure, they sold out, if you want to call it that. Yes, they became
Yes they became a more poor live act and yes, their music got worse. But
seriously, can you look me in the eye and say that Master Of Puppets and Ride
The Lightning are not two fucking incredible records? Can you tell me that this band
didn't influence thousands of bands to form bands even to this day, and live the
lie? Wake the fuck up people, Metallica is overrated as FUCK, but they sure were
a monster band and deserve to be on the list.
|Why do you have Morbid Saint twice?|
|was expecting this to suck, but nah awesome list|
I would replace metallica with testament tho
|he thought we wouldnt see that|
|also needs more Demolition Hammer for sure|
|Needs more overkill|
|needs more metallica on nmbr ONE|
|needs less sin69|
|needs less sin69 |
|dark angel have 1 good album so.....|
|Needs moar Alice in Chains...|
|im not such a thrash fan. I agree with everything you said about Metallica, except they are not really so poor live now. Not as good as in the old days, but whatever. Yeah, they sold out. However, their first 4 albums were complete gold. They are the best and most influential thrash band in existence. Fantastic song writers. Kreator is way too high. And Sodom kinda sucks ass.|
|stop hating germans :P|
|I agree with FTB. And if you say that you're not a thrash fan, then you can not fairly say which band is the best of that genre, even though we all know that there is no 'best band'. Still, they may be the most influential, but that does not make them the best. You can only make that assessment if you actually listen to the whole genre,|
|sigh, that was supposed to end with a period -.-|
|Sadus fucking own.|
Any love for Anthrax or Coroner?
|good list, though Id replace Exodus with Heathen and the second Morbid Saint with Demolition Hammer|
|"And Sodom kinda sucks ass"|
shut the fuck up noob
|list is fake without Testament|
|Haha, I didn't notice that I put Morbid Saint in there twice. I was copying and pasting because I couldn't make up my mind and it just sorta happened I suppose, sorry. They're replaced with Testament now. |
|I wanted to add Viking aswell, but they only made one good album which sounds kinda like a ripoff off Darkness Descends. |
|I would add Believer, personally. Maybe Tourniquet|
Both are excellent thrash bands. Check them out.
|Yeah, Anacrusis too.|
|Yeah, like Viking, those bands are REALLY underground and to be honest, I hadn't heard of Anacrusis until you mentioned them. They would have made the list if the list was longer, but this is pretty much a list over influential bands aswell and it was kinda hard to mix the underground bands with the more mainstream bands, if you like. |
|Viking were a talented band, no doubt. They just tried too hard.|
|no OVERKILL, no interest|
Also Living Sacrifice, hello.
