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.V2 Comments
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
The only bad thing about this band is they are no longer together...V1 Comment
I love this band because its not like a typical thrash band because Skeletonwitch has a lot of Black Metal influences.V1 Comment
83? These guys rock harder than Metallica!
Honestly, I've heard a little bit of them, and I liked it. I wouldn't listen to them as much as slayer or something, but they're good.V2 Comments
One from the vault. Very progressive and way ahead of their time.
Death metal not thrash...do you guys know whats thrash after all?
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
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.V1 Comment
One of the best thrash metal bands easily. 4 Epic albums across 40 years in two phases by the band. Exumer is thrash at it's bestV1 Comment
It's kind of sickening that this band isn't on this list already, yet Trivium, Bullet For My Valentine, As I Lay Dying, and Slipknot are extremely overrated, let alone on this list at all.
Artillery should be in the top 15, perhaps top 10. They're the Iron Maiden of Thrash Metal.
It saddens me to see pioneers of thrash being forgotten and rated so low in this list. There are too many bands listed that firstly shouldn't be because of their style, and secondly commercially overrated. Same as for Metallica; the black album was their point of no return when they decided going mainstream... What a pity.
What the hell! I'm disgusted seeing pantera bullet for my valentine trivium and other non thrash bands. How the hell can a true thrash metal fan not like artillery. All albums are kickass. Seriously it's a must as they are pure thrash
Very underrated.V4 Comments
