prelude

to agony - https://www.sputnikmusic.com/list.php?listid=196835
1Atrophy
Socialized Hate


1988, USA-NZ, straightforward
FFO: Evildead, Sacred Reich, Toxik, Whiplash, Vio-Lence
2Heathen
Breaking the Silence


1987, USA-CA, straightforward
Victims of Deception may be more popular but for my money this one's more consistent and less meandering.
3Whiplash
Insult to Injury


1989, USA-NJ, straightforward
Their most interesting and ambitious album. FFO: Forbidden, Overkill, Razor, Toxik
4Torture
Storm Alert


1989, USA-TX, straightforward
FFO: Slayer, Razor, Infernal Majesty
5Defiance (USA-CA)
Beyond Recognition


1992, USA-CA, straightforward
Their best and most well-written album. FFO: late 80s Testament, Forbidden, Atrophy, Evildead
6Wrathchild America
3-D


1991, USA-MD, proggy/vaguely alternative
If you want to hear a thrash band doing weird unexpected shit, try this. FFO: Stone, Omintron, Forced Entry
7Wehrmacht
Shark Attack


1987, USA-OR, crossover
Cryptic Slaughter's drummer involved in another lightning fast act, this one a bit more tongue-in-cheek as crossover tends to be. FFO: D.R.I., S.O.D., Cryptic Slaughter obviously
8Evildead
The Underworld


1990, USA-CA, straightforward
Guitarist Juan Garcia's best band? It sure ain't Agent Steel I can tell you that much. This album is just as good as the first. FFO: Atrophy, Forbidden, Sacred Reich, Nuclear Assault
9Opprobrium
Beyond The Unknown


1990, USA-LA, intense
Morrissound deathrash FFO: Demolition Hammer, Solstice, Num Skull
10Forced Entry
As Above, So Below


1991, USA-WA, proggy/groovy
If Cyclone Temple was actually good this is what they could have sounded like. FFO: Forbidden, Stone, Wrathchild America, Atrophy
11Black Fast
Starving Out the Light


2010, USA-MO, technical/progressive
Bite-sized classic Vektor style without any bloat and with a less plasticy overproduced sound. Shame they only got worse from here.
12Poison (DE)
Into the Abyss


1986, Germany, intense
Their demos might sound like absolute dogshit but this album is neat. FFO: Morbid, Protector, Merciless, Necrovore, Tormentor
13Necrodeath
Into the Macabre


1987, Italy, intense
I'm almost convinced these guys' 1985 demo must have circulated in the Brazilian scene. The similarities are too strong. FFO: Schizo, Sarcofago, Vulcano, Poison, Morbid etc.
14Hobbs' Angel of Death
Hobbs' Angel of Death


1988, Australia, straightforward
The name is silly, the cover art is silly, but the music is actually good?! FFO: Slayer, Razor, Dark Angel, Rigor Mortis etc.
15Sacrosanct
Recesses for the Depraved


1991, Netherlands, proggy
FFO: Despair, Deathrow, Assorted Heap, Paralysis
16Altered Moves Two
Shifter of Minds


1992, Netherlands, technical/progressive

19Necronomicon (DE2)
Escalation


1988, Germany, straightforward
FFO: Living Death, Exumer, Assassin
20Vectom
Rules Of Mystery


1986, Germany, straightforward
If you like Agent Steel you will like this, they are probably better. Also FFO: Living Death, Necronomicon, Violent Force, Exumer, Razor (early-mid 80s era)
21Parkcrest
...And That Blue Will Turn To Red


2019, Chile, straightforward
The first couple tracks got me hyped but overall I think this album is not super consistent. Still, I reckon many would be more into it than me. FFO: Hypnosia, Ripper, Critical Defiance, Rigor Mortis, Infernal Majesty
22The Krixhjalters
Evilution


1988, Sweden, crossover/?
Before Omnitron did their bizarro alt/prog/thrash business, they were a weird crossover band. Worth a try
23The Hirvi
Demo 1989


1989, Finland, technical
While Finland is mostly known for its weirdo death metal, this little cassette is a good example of weirdo Voivod-worshipping thrash.
24Sacrilege B.C.
Party with God


1986, USA-CA, crossover/straightforward
Bay Area band yet they have a bit of East Coast crossover, a bit of Texas crossover and even a bit of teutonic thrash (Exumer, early Kreator etc) in their sound.
25Why? (ITA)
Natura Morta Con Panneggio A Sinistra...


1991, Italy, proggy/techy/sporkcore
Italy's Thought Industry except a million times more obscure, also FFO DOOM (JPN)
26Exocosm
Spiral of Decay


2012, Finland, progressive/technical
Like a softer, better produced, more melodic Vektor.
FFO: Droid, Obliveon's From This Day Forward, Cynic, Atheist, Cryptic Shift, anything else like those
