Most Aggressive Thrash Metal SongsMetal_Treasure A list about thrash metal songs that are very aggressive on all levels and (almost) all the time - songs with drumming, vocals, riffs, tempos and solos straight from hell!
By "aggressive song" I don't mean a song with aggressive lyrics - music and its performance have to be aggressive, too. A slow melodic song with aggressive lyrics doesn't have the effect of a fast heavy song with aggressive lyrics.
Many metalcore and nu metal songs have aggressive sections but between these sections there are soft, melodic and even poppy sections. Thrash metal doesn't make such compromises.
