Most Aggressive Thrash Metal Songs

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.

The Top Ten

1 Angel of Death - Slayer

After making this list I looked at my top 10 and noticed that all songs in the top 10 have "aggressive" keywords in the titles.
1) Death - 4 titles: Angel of Death, Merciless Death, Death is Certain, The Death of Innocence (wow, Dark Angel contributed 3 songs! )
2) Kill - 2 titles: Pleasure to Kill, Kill (Those Who Oppose Me)
3) Blood - Raining Blood
4) Violence - A Lesson in Violence
5) Aggression - Extreme Aggression
6) Payback - Payback - Metal_Treasure

All Slayer songs inevitably sound aggressive - one of the reasons is that Tom Araya vocals are extremely aggressive. - Metal_Treasure

2 Pleasure to Kill - Kreator
3 Kill (Those Who Oppose Me) - Lost Society

When this song was recorded, the band members were teens aged 17, 18, 19, and 19.
It's one of the fastest and most aggressive thrash songs. It was released in 2013, on their debut album.

Lost Society are a thrash metal band from Finland founded in 2010. - Metal_Treasure

4 Payback - Slayer
5 Raining Blood - Slayer
6 Merciless Death - Dark Angel
7 A Lesson in Violence - Exodus
8 Extreme Aggression - Kreator
9 Death is Certain (Life is Not) - Dark Angel
10 Metal Militia - Metallica

James is like an animal in this song. And the guitar riff is crazy! - Userguy44

I think that overall, this is possibly their most aggressive song. Fight Fire with Fire is with the fastest picking but James vox are too melodic at times. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 The Death of Innocence - Dark Angel
12 Disciple - Slayer
13 Fight Fire with Fire - Metallica
14 Dyers Eve - Metallica
15 Whiplash - Metallica

Agressive lyrics and music. Metal Militia is the most agressive Metallica song, but I think this one is agressive too. Especially when James screams Whiplash - Userguy44

16 Captor of Sin - Slayer
17 Mad Butcher - Destruction
18 Thrashing Rage - Voivod
