Top Ten Albums to Get You Into Thrash Metal

The Top Ten Albums to Get You Into Thrash Metal

1 Rust in Peace - Megadeth

My first thrash album, and became one of my favorite albums ever - RustyNail

2 Ride the Lighting - Metallica
3 Reign in Blood - Slayer
4 ... and Justice for All - Metallica

My favorite, for having the best drumming in the Metallica catalogue. Say what you will about Lars and his questionable skills, but Dyer's Eve and One are both fantastic, largely because of him.

5 Chaos A.D. - Sepultura
6 Among the Living - Anthrax
7 The Dream Calls for Blood - Death Angel

Very Underrated, amazing new thrash metal album - RustyNail

8 Master of Puppets - Metallica
9 Handle with Care - Nuclear Assault
10 Paranoid - Black Sabbath

As far as getting one into metal, as this is more accessible, this is probably the best example. - BeatlesFan1964
