Top Ten Awards That Should Be Given If There Were Thrash Metal Awards
The Top Ten
I'd give that one to fade to black. Although that one's heavy metal, not thrash metal, so never mind, I agree with this. - Songsta41
Tornado of souls (Megadeth)
One (Metallica) - gemcloben
Maybe Megadeth isn't as great as Metallica, but Dave is definitely the best overall musician. He was one of the founding members of thrash metal and he's very musically innovative. He writes a majority of Megadeth's songs as well, and in those songs he sings great, while at the same time playing sick guitar riffs and sometimes solos. There's no denying that Dave is the best thrash musician. - Songsta41
I would nominate the same 3 people but I would give it to Hetfield - he was more influential towards thrash popularization in the 80s, he was the epitome of thrash. He's also a better leader of his band than Mustaine. And a better singer.
Mustaine is a better guitarist but the award "Best Musician" is more than that. - Metal_Treasure
Good leadership doesn't mean control. How many band members left Metallica and how many band members left Megadeth? - Metal_Treasure
Waters (Annihilator) - gemcloben
I love the idea of this list - thrash Grammys? Sure, it's cool. Great job, gemcloben! - Metal_Treasure
Well, that's not the one I expected to be here. I didn't expect it to be anywhere, to be honest. I find this one a bit too heavy. Here are my nominees:
Welcome Home (Sanitarium) - Metallica
Tornado of Souls - Megadeth
Badlands - Metal Church
And so many more... - Songsta41
I love so many thrash songs that I would probably nominate more than 30.
1. The Four Horsemen - Metallica (or some other Metallica song).
2. Black Prophecies - Dark Angel
3. Raining Blood - Slayer - Metal_Treasure
Head crusher (Megadeth)
Elimination (overkill) - gemcloben
Trujillo (Metallica) (I think he is overshadowed by Burton too much, but a really unique player) - gemcloben
1. Dave Lombardo (Slayer)
2. Gene Hoglan (Dark Angel, Testament - 2 albums)
3. Mike Mangini (Annihilator) - I'd say he's the best drummer but nobody thinks of him as thrash, especially now when he is associated with Dream Theater and prog drumming.
That's why I give it to Lombardo but Gene Hoglan is a pretty strong contender for the #1 spot, too. - Metal_Treasure
Adler (he can be classed as thrash for his work with Megadeth, but he really make it here with lamb of god) - gemcloben
I think that the Elimination riff (1989) sounds pretty much like Master of Puppets (1986). - Metal_Treasure
I just didn't like the vocals overall a good song
Tornado of Souls! Wow, I'm giving a lot of these awards to that song - Songsta41
Master of puppets (Metallica)
Holy wars (Megadeth) - gemcloben
Megadeth isn't my first thrash choice but this is the riff that impressed me at most. - Metal_Treasure
Hetfield (Metallica) - gemcloben
Ride the Lightning! Kill em All is amazing, but not as special, fantastic, and well done as Ride the Lightning. James improved his growl and they found the perfect thrash metal sound, while at the same time, writing 8 songs which I would all call "insanely good". - Songsta41
Alice In Hell - Annihilator. It brought more technical and sophisticated elements to the table, and also influenced Rust In Peace. - Metal_Treasure
Rust in Peace man! I don't think Countdown to Extinction is purely thrash. It's kind of their black album. - IronSabbathPriest
Kill 'em all (Metallica)
Countdown to extinction (Megadeth)
Souls of black (testament) - gemcloben
Fade to Black by far. I'd still take the unforgiven first, but then I'll take Nothing Else matters as third (just talking about Metallica), but A Tout Le Monde is also one of the greatest. - Songsta41
The Call of Ktulu - Metallica - Songsta41
Arc Lite (Coroner)
Musical Death (Testament) - Metal_Treasure
Return to serenity (testament)
A tout le monde (Megadeth)
Nothing else matters (Metallica) - gemcloben
Absence of light (testament)
Madhouse (anthrax) - gemcloben
1. Saturday Night's Allright For Fighting - Flotsam and Jetsam (Elton John cover)
2. Whiskey In The Jar - Metallica (Thin Lizzy cover)
3. I Want You (She's So Heavy) - Coroner (The Beatles cover).
This is the best Beatles cover - confirmed by the Beatles fans I know (I sent them the link because nobody knew this cover existed). - Metal_Treasure
Am I Evil? - Diamond Head (this one's New Wave of British Heavy Metal) - Songsta41
Fanboys just ventured beyond Metallica, they think Dave Mustaine is some kind of God.
He's the Donald Trump of Metal.
