Best Albums from the "Big Four" of Thrash Metal

2112Regulator
The best albums from the "Big Four" of thrash metal. NOTE, I am just putting 10 you can add if you would like, JUST PUT BIG FOUR ALBUMS NOT ANY OTHER THRASH METAL BANDS.

The Top Ten

1 Rust in Peace

There is Rust in Peace... and then the rest can fight for 2nd place

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

With songs like Holy Wars, Rust In Peace, Hanger 18, And Tornado Of Souls this defiantly deserves to be #2 - 2112Regulator

2 Ride the Lightning

The ultimate Trash Metal album! - Userguy44

The best album in the world! Every song on this album I could listen to for days! Its That Amazing! - 2112Regulator

Best Metallica Album Masterpiece

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

Shreds you to pieces in under 30 minutes.

Where Are You Slayer Fans?
Come on and Vote for the heaviset Album of all time...
This Album Influence on the death metal, What more can I Say?
(Sorry for bad English :)) )

4 Master of Puppets

Rust in piece my ass.

Great Album With Master Of Puppets And Battery. - 2112Regulator

Pastor of Muffets.

5 Among the Living

Anthrax doesn't have very many good albums they are my least favorite thrash band. This album is their best. - 2112Regulator

A true thrash masterpiece not one bad track on the whole album

6 Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?

Simply The best.

7 Seasons in the Abyss
8 ...And Justice for All

The most complex Metallica had ever gotten

9 Kill 'Em All
10 South of Heaven

The Contenders

11 Spreading the Disease - Anthrax

This IS the best album of all time. Anthrax is clearly the most underrated band of the big four even if they are way better. This album contains madhouse, gunh-ho, Medusa, stand or fall, the enemy, aftershock, A.I.R. and lone Justice and I know by heart all of theme.

12 Youthanasia
13 Countdown to Extinction

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

Metallica fangirl spotted.

14 Hell Awaits

This will be a fight between slayer, sacrifice, sodom and megadeth, metallica should fight against blutengel or baby metal... Long live darkest thrash record of slayer, no one equals!

15 Killing is My Business... and Business is Good!

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

16 Worship Music
17 Endgame

This whole album is amazing. Dioletic chaos/this day we fight is jaw dropping - Sabbath

18 State Of Euphoria
19 Persistence Of Time
20 Death Magnetic

Clean, heavy, creative, killer riffs; what more could you ask for?

21 Hardwired... to Self-Destruct
22 So Far, So Good...So What!

My personal favorite megadeth album

23 Metallica
24 Dystopia
25 Fistful of Metal
26 Show No Mercy

Legendary
