They are better than anyone American thrash band! - ne6tastnika

I'm a Thrasher, listen to tons of trash bands. But ' hell, when I heard Onslaught, I went crazy.

63 S.O.D.
64 Soulfly
65 Dirty Rotten Imbeciles

Why are these guys way down here? They invented Crossover with bands like S.O. D!

They are by far the worst thrash metal band I have ever heard. They shouldn't even be on the list.

66 Bonded by Blood Bonded by Blood Bonded by Blood is an American thrash metal band, named after Exodus' debut album Bonded by Blood. Like its labelmates Evile, Gama Bomb, and Municipal Waste, Bonded by Blood is part of the thrash metal revival movement.

They're newbies, it's true, but they are absolutely killer and a breath of fresh air not only to metal but also to thrash they're quite different which is interesting

67 Mantic Ritual Mantic Ritual Mantic Ritual was a thrash metal band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The band released their debut album through Nuclear Blast Records.

The only bad thing about this band is they are no longer together...

South Africa's finest are also one of the top thrash metal bands. They have a very original sound and do what they truly feel. Listen to Power of the Brave, Force of Final Impact or What is Wrong

South Africa's finest deserve a chance up there with the classics. Watch a live show and your mind will be changed forever

The cream of South Africa's crop they stay true to what they love and they've been around for quite some time

80 Deliverance

Deliverance is a Christian thrash metal in the 80's. The riffs are mean and awesome. One of my favorite album of them is Weapons of our warfare.
