My favourite band after megadeth. but they aren't thrash metal band. they are progressive, thrash, heavy, speed metal together. sorry for my bad English
One of my favorite bands, Jeff Loomis, enough said, not thrash though
Nevermore is way more creative and talented than Slayer and Anthrax put together.V 1 Comment
I absolutely love Metallica, but they are getting old, and you've got to keep up with the times, man. Havok is the future of thrash metal. They are wicked fast, insanely heavy and they have AMAZING guitar solos. My vote goes to Havok, simply because of the fact that, as much as I hate to say it, Metallica is no longer thrash metal. Just heavy metal.
Please, get these guys to the top 10. There is no modern thrash band that plays with half the intensity and energy as Havok. Listen to Time is Up and you'll understand - ryanrimmel
Havok is a great band, and all those other thrash metal bands are lame. This band is so angry, it makes me want to break stuff. Havok makes havoc.
If there was a Big Four of Thrash for today's bands, Havok would be the forefront of the new Big Four. - Dottman56V 11 Comments
Definitely one of the flat-out SCARIEST thrash bands out there. Incredibly unsettling, and that's what we like about it.
Time does Not Heal is a masterpiece, they should be at least in the top ten
Darkness dessends is a killer album, not great production but totally heavy and thrashing.V 2 Comments
The first record kicks ass from start to end, crank it up and rip the knob off!
'The Dark' is an incredible album, and the late David Wayne's vocals on this and their debut prove that he is one of metal's greatest ever talents.
These guys are number two in my opinion just under Metallica. The Dark is my fifth favorite album of all time.
I know Metallica, mega, slayer, and anthrax are legendary, but you gotta give it up for this new generation thrash metal beasts!
I think the song cult is my favourite song
Just listen to Skull to revitalize your faith in modern thrash metal. It's epic.
Underworld is a really good song. - DarkenedBrutalityV 2 Comments
Why is this band not on top 15? We are talking about thrash here... Get wasted
Most of their songs don't cross 2 minutes but, they are amazing.
Hazardous Mutation is one sexy album. Had to put them in my top 10 even though they're relatively new compared to the other bands in this list.
As I'm reading this, this band is the 49th on the list. And the list title is "Best Thrash Metal Bands" so there might be a mistake. I'd say 5th or 6th position is fair enough.
amazing band! Crossover-thrash has to be the best sub-genre of thrash!V 4 Comments
Beer metal, awesome, heavy and fun, also good THRASH, another great band from Germany!
Seriously guys? 20? I mean, Die with a beer in your hand, Zombie Attack, Empty Tankard, Need Money For beerV 1 Comment
Great band, great albums, feel bit sorry for them, deserved better recognition.
Most underrated metal band ever. Their music is awesome I think they are top 10 thrash metal easy
Victims of Deception is almost as good as Ride the Lightning and Rust in Peace.V 1 Comment
Nuclear Assault Should Be higher and at least in the top 10, they are not my favourite thrash band but they are up there in my favourites! With great songs like Fight to be free, Brainwashed and Critical Mass. Pantera is not thrash, its groove metal still an awesome band though but in the wrong category.
Should be in top 5!
Danny Lilker is one of the most awesome bassists ever. And undoubtedly Nuclear Assault beats Anthrax any day.
Don't agree? Just listen to their albums 'Game Over' or 'Handle With Care' for some very special Thrash! - Nord666
All the djent bands are copying them nowadays, these guys are true original talent and push metal forward with everything they release. They deserve to be up there with Metallica and Iron Maiden.
Not really thrash, but they're goodV 3 Comments
It's not pure thrash. It's punk thrash (or crossover thrash)
Basically when Anthrax sounded more like Slayer
'No Place For Disgrace' is the greatest speed-metal album ever made, and is widely held in this regard. This album is the gold standard.
Listen to Hammerhead, N.E. terror or No place for Disgrace. One of the greatest Thrash out thereV 1 Comment
Amazing and diverse band. Along with Annihilator they are pioneers of techno thrash. They were influenced not only by punk and metall, but also by some progressive rock bands like Pink Floyd and King Crimson, and they do sound quite proggy and sophisticated. If you're open-minded music lover I should advice you to listen to their albums Dimension Hatross and Nothingface - pure masterpieces!
Most underrated thrash ever. Killing Technology, Dimension Hattross and Nothingface are classics, as well as many other songs from throughout their career.
Best Thrash band formed outside the 80s. If you've never heard them before check out "Fast Paced Society" and "Hunger for Violence" once you're assimilated from these go buy Black Future and Outer Isolation because they're 2 of the best thrash albums ever made.V 1 Comment
I'm my opinion Anvil are not a thrash band. I do believe they invented thrash though. In 1982 Anvil gave us "Metal on Metal". This album was mostly traditional Heavy Metal except for the last track "666". This song was definitely a thrash song. There is no doubt in my mind that the big four were listening. One year later Slayer, Metallica, and Anthrax were born. Megadeth followed soon after the Metallica split. Anvil created that sound. They ventured into thrash many times, but always stayed loyal to classic Metal. I think Anvil has been denied this truth for too long. They started the thrash movement.
Should be in top 10 these guys are the pioneers of thrash metal!
Its cross over thrash but I guess they belong on this list lol.
I see DRI and SOD but why isn't Suicidal Tendencies on here? The greatest crossover thrash there is and like fifth greatest thrash band.
We talking about thrash here right? ST are 40th?
how bout y'all Wake Up and accept they belong to top ten?
if ya aren't convinced listen to suicidal for life
Gwar should be higher. Gwar is an awesome Thrash band, listen to Gor-Gor, Bring Back The Bomb, and Metal Metal Land - ryanrimmelV 1 Comment
