|TOP TEN THRASH METAL 2010's (SO FAR)|
This list will get updated over time, but here's a crack at the 2010's decade.
The Evil Divide
Aside from their fantastic debut which was at least a couple years ahead of its time, I never really caught onto Death Angel like other people. That being said, I've listened to the majority of their material up to this point and judge accordingly. It's a good album, not great but good.
What do you get when you bring Joey back? An accessible, catchy brand of thrash with better grooves.
Exhibit B: The Human Condition
I like the first Exhibition better, but the second time around is very good nonetheless.
In War and Pieces
Sodom has always been on the heavier side of thrash, almost reaching death metal with several releases (I'm looking at you Tapping The Vein), and yet they blend melody with their music much like Kreator. Congrats to the Germans.
|6||Flotsam and Jetsam|
Flotsam and Jetsam
They haven't sounded this good since Cuatro (yes, The Cold was very good but wasn't thrashy enough). They up the thrash once again and add in their best drumming yet, and what you get is a solid collection of THRASH reminiscent of their golden days.
How does create do it? Death metal-tinged thrash blending melodic harmonies yet delivered with aggressive, raspy vocals. It's good shit on paper, and it's even better when you hear it for yourself.
MC are one of my favorite groups, and despite a couple misfires, they've always delivered the goods with their timeless take on thrash metal and power metal. They make no exceptions when their quintessential frontman Mike Howe rejoins the group after 20 years and create some of their best material in ages.
Time Is Up
Maybe I'm just addicted to this album, but it blends 80's hardcore punk with smartly written thrash better than most albums of this century so far, and the production makes everything sound crunchy. An excellent album.
Vektot take the hot seat as the potential monarchs of the genre since the 2000's began as they whip out some unique records that blend black metal and thrash metal with influences of prog. and jazz. That, plus the sci-fi themes, makes for astounding listening experiences, and they up the ante with the long yet enticing Terminal Redux.
Yes, Vektor's newest record Terminal Vedux is very fucking good, hell a borderline masterpiece, but Ironbound is the sound of a band that finally sounds alive and ready to kill again. The loud, beefy production compliment the plethora of intense vocals, shredfest riffs, and frantic bass-playing/drumming and raise the bar for even the big four to compete to. Probably the biggest middle finger of the 21st century from the genre (pun intended).
|Here we go guys! When I get back Monday, I'll have an all-time (so far) list posted up. |
|New thrash is crap|
|@thetruedemonlord Not all of it is. There has been some solid material to come from the 2000's, but I agree that great material is scarce.|
|New thrash is amazing, bunch of posers|
|Would def rate 9 higher, reverse 1 and 2, swap 6 with Black Fast and Lich King with 8|
|But it's a respectable rating nonetheless|
|"New thrash is amazing, bunch of posers"|
i don't even know if i should dignify this greenhorn post with a reaction, frankly
half this list is a 3 at best
and havok is a mediocre band
check out iron reagan, fog of war - s/t and children - hard times hanging at the end of the world
|@Crypt New thrash ain't quite amazing bud. Much of it is recycled from the olden days or taken from the shitty stuff that floats around today to appeal to the masses.|
|@miketunneyiscool123 Yeah, pretty much. That's why I hate the "modern big 4." My friends praise them all the time. To me, it just sounds like recycled trash (pun intended). I introduced them to Vektor and they still didn't enjoy them as much as the "modern big 4."|
|miketunney check the bands i rec'd m8|
|Sure thing bud.|
|I'd have thrown in Electric Age probably somewhere...|
|I didn't want to have two records from the same band on here. That and although it's good, Ironbound is better.|
|It's almost like you can enjoy both classics and new stuff.|
Anyone acting like thrash hasn't changed, evolved and grown since the 90's should go do something better in their time like shouting at kids in their frontyard.
|I find my share of good new stuff.|
