|Top 55 thrash metal albums|
My top 55 thrash metal albums ranked, if you disagree just argue without being a know it all douchebag, it would be great.
Technical and melodic, the title track is stand out
I Hate Therefore I Am
Thrash with alternative vocals
Act Of God
Debbie Gunn was one of the most underrated female singers in metal
Check out their Eleaonor Rigby cover
Slaughter in the Vatican
Phil anselmo took much inspiration from this, really violent and fast
one of the biggest influences of death metal
this one it,s really overlooked, the band itself quitted because of lack of support, proggy thrash at it's best
The Laws of Scourge
Aggressive black thrash from Brasil
Before Type o negative Peter steele relased this controversial crossover thrash full of blasphemy and satire
this album begins with one of the most insane screams ever
Chaos of Forms
Thrash combined with technical death metal, heavy yet melodic
Handle With Care
One of the best and fastest crossover thrash ever
Victims of Deception
it took time to appreciate this one, after a few listens you,ll love it
more aggressive and technical than their first one
another overlooked prog thrash, a great modern album with a truly talented singer
this one it's weird, you can find jazz, funk and avant garde influences
Conclusion of an Age
my favorite metal subgenres (thrash and melodeath) combined together, what else could i say?
Maybe i'm the only one to prefer this one to the ultraviolence but i find it more entertaining, experimental and versatile than the previous albums, a room with a view is one hell of a ballad!
|37||Stormtroopers of Death|
Speak English or Die
One of the funniest albums ever recorded
modern crossover, bangover is one of the catchiest tracks in the genre
the singer sounds like bruce dickinson on codeine and musically is pure energy
one of the most depressing bands ever, really technical, you have to get used to the vocals
Epidemic of Violence
maybe the heaviest album on the list, the sound of the drums is something out of this world
technical and melodic thrash with many influences from other genres, entertainment at it's best
it was an hard choice between this one and their next work but forbidden evil wins because of lack of filler tracks and vocal performance
Gene Hoglan is a fucking machine gun. this album sounds technical and dark at the same time
Control and Resistance
The biggest influence in math metal, one of the most technical albums ever, not a great fan of the vocals
compared to the previous works this one it's really ahead of it's time, heavy tracks alternated to more accessible ones
No More Color
one of the pioneers of tech thrash, this album is musically outstanding, with better vocals could be higher tho
Songs for Insects
Jason newsted himself loves this band, truly complex and experimental thrash with unique sound and signatures
|25||Flotsam and Jetsam|
Doomsday for the Deceiver
speaking of Newsted, the debut album of Flotsam contains some of the most high pitched vocals and catchy riffs in the genre
this one combines perfectly melodic elements with technical and heavy sound
Sci-fi thrash with futuristic sound, complex and unique
pioneers of teutonic thrash, Sodom sounds like a thrashy motorhead which is obviously a good thing. Check the german version of ausgebombt, better than the english one
Ever wondered how a thrashy blind guardian would sound? here is the answer. A great underrated masterpiece.
Rage always been one of the best and most prolific german bands ever, with unity they combined their classic speed/power music to a more aggressive Thrash/groove sound. Mission accomplished
Maybe you expected to find Years of decay, but imo this masterpiece is their finest work. Horrorific, atmospheric, groovy and totally original music.
Pathogenic Ocular Dissonance
Prog thrash never been more complex like this, tourniquet created a psychedelic yet heavy album that sounds fresh still today
How Will I Laugh Tomorrow If I Can't Even Smile Today?
S.T. temporarily abandons crossover to focus over pure thrash, the result is their best albums ever. Politically satirical and ironic, Mike Muir influenced an entire generation.
another hard choice but i think that arise defines better what Max's sepultura was:pure brutality.
Voivod,Obliveon and black metal influenced Vektor to create one of the best and most unique albums of the 2000s. This album can bring you to another dimension with space atmospheres and weird songwriting.
Much more technical than the debut, Think this is one of those albums that are accessible even to people who don't like thrash due it's versatile songwriting and talented singer
A gloomy, heavy, dark masterpiece.
halòo is one of the greatest songs of the 2000s
This Godless Endeavor
R.I.P. Warrel Dane
Pleasure to Kill
One of the heaviest and most evil sounding albums of the 80s, kreator were really ahead of their time about heaviness
Screams and Whispers
i've never heard anything similar to this, Anacrusis created their own genre. Kenn Nardi is one of the most original singers in music.
|9||Strapping Young Lad|
Industrial thrash metal written by Devin Townsend and with Gene Hoglan at the drums. Need to say more?
Bonded by Blood
One of the most popular albums of the 80s, Bonded by blood is pure thrash.
Cowboys from Hell
C.f.h. is the album thhat created groove metal, every single song is pure energy, Dimebag Darrel remains one of the most iconic guitarrists in metal
testament,s debut album is still a classic, every single song is pure gold, Skolnick solos were pure epicness
Among the Living
anthrax have indeed fun when they record their albums, you can clearly hear it, a.t.l. has everything you need from thrash plus a little sense of humor
Ride the Lightning
yes, better than master of puppets, even Metallica haters loves this one. The sound is perfect, Burton did a perfect job and every single song is great and different from the previous one (i like even escape).
Rust in Peace
Always considered as one of the best albums in music,Rust in peace is technically perfect, the songwriting is gold and the production fits perfectly well the music
Seasons in the Abyss
i love reign in blood but Seasons is by far their most complete album. The band combines their classic fast and energic tracks to mid tempo tracks and slow dark sounding masterpieces.
my favorite thrash album ever. technical, heavy, melodic andoverall complete.
you can find unique sounding tracks (fun palace), heavy thrashers(i am i command, phantasmagoria), punkish(kraf dinner), proggy ones (sixes and sevens), dark power ballads (never neverland) and even more traditional ones (stonewall). p.s. the guitarwork is outsanding
