Best Albums From Thrash Metal's Big 4


The Top Ten

1 Rust In Peace - Megadeth

Hangar 18, Tornado Of Souls, Holy Wars, Five Magics, Take No Prisoners... I CAN't speak anymore

Either this album or And Justice for all should be number 1, even though Anthrax's Among the living is great. - Metalfan2112

One of my favourite albums. sorry, just had to vote for reign in blood, but this is my second place

2 Ride the Lightning - Metallica

Master of puppets is the best, but I ve voted for this to become number one, because mop, rtj and ajfa are absolutely the best ever.

3 Reign In Blood - Slayer

Shreds you to pieces in under 30 minutes.

It's underrated. Please vote. It's just speed. Not slow paced like Metallica

13 Countdown to Extinction - Megadeth

This is not a thrash album at all. Not even close. This album sucks - Sabbath

Metallica fangirl spotted.
