62Soulfly
63Dirty 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.

64Bonded by BloodBonded 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

65Mantic RitualMantic 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...

66SkeletonwitchSkeletonwitch is an American blackened thrash metal band from Athens, Ohio, formed in 2003. The band currently consists of drummer Dustin Boltjes, bassist Evan Linger, and guitarists Nate Garnette and Scott Hedrick and vocalist Adam Clemans.

I love this band because its not like a typical thrash band because Skeletonwitch has a lot of Black Metal influences.

83? These guys rock harder than Metallica!

68GoatwhoreGoatwhore is an American extreme metal band formed in 1997 in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States formed by former Acid Bath guitarist Sammy Duet. Goatwhore is known for their fast-paced fusion of black, death, and thrash metal.

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.

One from the vault. Very progressive and way ahead of their time.

73PossessedPossessed is an American thrash/death metal band, originally formed in 1983 in the San Francisco Bay Area. Noted for their fast style of playing and Jeff Becerra's guttural vocals, they are routinely called the first band in the death metal genre.

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

77Deliverance

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.

79Exumer

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 best

80ArtilleryArtillery is a Danish thrash metal band. They participated in the early development of the genre, and their highly energetic, riff-centric and often fast-paced music is similar in style to that of Voivod, Coroner, Megadeth and Sabbat from the same era.

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.
