BINGE: death/thrash

Put together a nice list of thrash and death-thrash albums to binge this month, any other essentials I should add??? I've already hit Demolition Hammer, Morbid Saint, Dark Angel, Death Angel (lol these fucking names), Kreator, and a few others. please do not rec the big four, but if you wanna talk about Slayer, that's cool too :]]]]]]

Surprised this isn't talked about more, this is that prime 80s thrash production you want. This dude's high pitched screams are both awesome and fucking hilarious, like, I don't even know girls who can do that. This is/should be a genre staple.

Looove the guitar work here. Even after only listening to this twice, the opening sweeps feel iconic to me. Good variety here for a thrash record, I can definitely see how this became a classic.

Pretty straight up thrash, but with weaker vocals. Just one small step below Release From Agony. Need to check their newer stuff to see if it holds up...

BASS. Deep, gravelly bass. You don’t hear that too much in this genre. This is a breakneck, heavy mess. Mess in a good way, of course. Love the little hardcore touches here and there as well, especially the 32 second braincrushing Mothers’ Day, which sounds like Dead Kennedys went metal. They lost this intensity severely later in their career.

Some seriously fast thrashers right here. Guitarists are almost too skilled for their own good, though the guitar tone is not my favorite. If I had to pick a weak spot here it would probably be the vocalist, who sounds like a 40 year old on this. He's really not bad at all, but a little weak compared to his peers. Did I mention these guys play fast? Lord almighty do they play fucking fast.

Heavyyyyy. Solid instrumentation all around, fast, good vocals, and hard ass riffs.

Started veering into prog metal territory here. More clean vocals than I expected. Unfortunately the vocals were all around the weakest part here. There were few moments where the vocalist sounded like he wasn't struggling to keep up. Everything else was very solid though, and a little different from everything else I've listened to thus far.

Why is this the ONLY album of theirs that isn't streaming? Anyway, this one absolutely crushes. Probably the closest thing I've heard to Demolition Hammer. Incredible death metal vocals with thrashy riffing.

This was pretty fun. These guys obviously don't take themselves too seriously as beer is a recurring theme in their music. Nothing too crazy of note here. I noticed there were several songs with long riffy parts with no vocals, almost like they were too lazy to write more lyrics. Overall a good time.

Wow. So many things went right here. The guitar tone is perfect and keeps the guitars at the forefront. Production is actually good...not like "old and lo-fi good." Songwriting is strong and creative enough to not be generic thrash. Vocals are good but don't necessarily stand out most of the time. And that last song...eerie blues/rock/death metal? Wtf? Totally out of left field but somehow works great as the closer.

Riffs hard. Maybe the only Brazilian metal band I've knowingly listened to? This is one of those albums you can tell was very influential back in the day. The non-metal moments give this thing some good variety and room to breathe. Solid shit.

As usual, these guys rule. This is the third album of theirs that I've heard (Pleasure to Kill & Extreme Aggression) and they're all super consistent. I'd probably rank this third, but only by a tiny hair. TERROR ZONE!

Another fun one, fairly short which works well in this case. The vocalist isn't really good enough to warrant a longer run-time. Not that he's bad or anything, but it sounds like he was struggling on some songs. Album came out in 1985, which is definitely towards the early era of heavier thrash. Considering this only has 95 ratings here, I'd say they're a bit more "below the radar" than they should be.

Added this so I wouldn't just be giving everything a 4. Also I like the album title/art reference. This was pretty middle of the road. Does very little to stand out, and the singer is nothing remarkable. Not bad by any means, but somewhat forgettable. Good enough to throw on in the background.
