Best New Wave Thrash Metal Bandsdragon13304
The Top Ten
Metal has a word called thrash more like trash or ash or rash...ouch lol
Albums like Ride the Lightning, Rust in Peace, and The New Order blew my mind and got me into music. Then I spent the 2000s saying that there would never again be a life changing album or even a metal classic for that matter to come out. I just stuck with the thrash classics of the 80's. Then one day, I came across Time is Up by Havok and got the same feeling I had when listening to Megadeth or Metallica for the first time. This band completely restored my faith in good music and good thrash metal to reemerge. And sure enough, this decade is bringing us great albums from all thrash bands old and new. I may have never known that if it weren't for Havok. Since I heard Time is Up, havok became my favorite new wave band of all time.
HAVOK SLAYS ALL OTHER NEW THRASH METAL m/
Just when you thought good thrash is dead...
I wasn’t looking for them when I happened to head Intention to Deceive on YouTube...blew my brains away!
No competition. Vektor is in a league of their own.
Literally anyone who has ever heard Vektor would know that they deserve to be on top... They absolutely are the best modern thrash band and arguably one of the best of all time... Check out Charging/Recharging the void
Vektor slays any other modern thrash band. They will literally become a legendary band, we are talking legendary as Death. All their albums are masterpieces.V 19 Comments
EXACTLY! Evile absolutely deserves to be up at the top of this list. They don't have a lot of albums but the stuff they already have are comparable to the Big Four's material. EVILE RULES!
My favorite band of all time
ONE OF THE BEST BANDS EVER! My favourite modern thrash band, their work is incredibly fantastic, enter the grave was probably the best album of the 2000s
Thrasher it's a classic already. - renanborgesV 2 Comments
Best modern thrash band out there maybe even just best thrash band out there after there new album woe to the vanquished came out
Listen to Living In A Whirlwind.
The single greatest thrash band to date. Absolute brutality and intensity in a relentless assault of riffs, drums, and roars
Warbringer should be in different genre with the rift & the lyric they should be call pioneer of "Dark Thrash"V 6 Comments
Reminds me of early anthrax
The best of new thrash bands great live band
Amazing. Joel really did well with this band. Great live too I saw them with Napalm Death and Agnostic Front and they sounded the best in my opinion.
Deserves to be in the top 3. Serpents Unleashed is all I have to say. The first track to the last track is non stop, in your face, and doesn't let up. Beats Evile in my opinion. Skeletonwitch will burn a hole in your head
Skeletonwitch are awesome! Just listen to "Breathing the Fire" and tell me they don't deserve to be at or near the top of this list!
Combat Mosh says it all people...
Just listen to Toxic Zombie Onslaught or Predator from the album Do-Over. Those songs give you the same feeling as listening Holy Wars... I love anything from Born of the Bomb and Do-Over. Also the cover of Hot for Teacher is amazing
Lich King has consistently improved with each album. Check out "Omniclasm", "Do-Over", and "Born of the Bomb" - their earlier stuff is pretty raw and poorly produced but their more recent albums kick major-ass. To quote the band: Lich King rules! Lich King has become my go-to Thrash band when I'm lifting weights or otherwise want to get pumped up (no pun intended). The most head-bangable music of the 21st century (in my opinion).
Think Nuclear Assault combined with Exodus, but better. Agnosticism is easily better than even the classic Fade to Black
Gama Bomb Should be on top of the list good rift & better solo
Funny + heavy = entertain
This band deserves to be in the top 5. Awesome front man, shredding guitars and crushing rhythm with fun lyrics about scifi and horror.
Not my favorite, but way too low on here. Both of their albums are excellent and Carlos Cruz of Warbringer was able to effectively showcase his melodic side. It's a shame that the band split up. - surgeonsanic
Best New Thrash Band ever. I love State of Insurgency
Boa, fantástica, curto demais o Being And Nothingness
They sound a bit like Exodus(with Duxes), which is pretty obvious as we get from their name, with a little insparation of Old school thrash
Gone too soon! If they came out in back in the day, they would have been one of the giants of thrash.
The vocals for mantic ritual are some f my favourite vocals out of any thrash band they are so good. - dragon13304
must be 1
Puta quio pariu!
Brazillian Thrash Metal! Simple and devastating.
This band so new wave of thrash metal, they got it
Simply great Thrash!V 2 Comments
They are so good, should be in the list too
These guys play their hearts out. The drums are reminisant of early Brahm Dainer[Mastodon]. Dragonforce style shredding. Two great growly vocalists
Division of Blood is a Great Album
I saw them live,they are amazing
Greatest greek band ever. Listen to apokathilosis, begger of scorn, bleeding holocaust, dead again.
Fueled By Fire are one of my favorite Thrash bands... period. They sort of have a Death Angel sound, but pushed to the extreme.
Great and underrated one of the best newer bands
Great bandV 2 Comments
Listen to "thrash metal holocaust" and then tell me if this is not the best thrash song ever!
unfortunately the band split up :(
The best with lost society *-*
Even better thane evile and havok
M/ can take wait for July 8, 2016 if your a fan you would understand
AGENT THRASH! m/
The best undergroundish band out right now
Both albums are so good
Based On Evil is a brilliant thrash album and is so underrated! - dragon13304
Should be way higher
Solid, fun. Great songwriting.
One of the best New Wave Thrash band in my opinion. they make a Thrash influenced by Megadeth, Slayer and Metallica. Their 2 first albums are good Thrash (with groove influences), the third is excellent, and their last is... PERFECT!
Good riffs, awesome vocals, kick ass soli! They are the best New Wave Thrash!
You are Next
Great Crossover Thrash and Tony Foresta and Land Phil of Municipal Waste perform in this band, this band kicks major ass!
Haven't heard? Do not vote for them! Find them on you tube! Hear them! Then decide to vote!
Great band. Listen to "Masovna Sarana" or "Drekavac".
So underrated best Death/Thrash band
Best Death Thrash Metal Band
Verry good band just check RISE OF THE HAMMER or STEELCRUSHER out
Extinction is the album of the year in 2017!
100% must check out please support this band
Simply great honest Thrash Metal!
No fancy fly-on-a-wall stuff whatsoever nowadays (thrash) metal comes up with.
KEEP IT UP!
Raw and powerful. Nervosa has the energy and raw edge of classic thrash complete with political-themed vocals. “Kill the Silence” is a perfect example of everything that makes thrash great. Slayer-like riffs and vocals with more of a growl. Sepultra fans will also really dig this band for keeping that brand alive.
New old school puerto rican thrash metal band
Solid Thrash, very good vocalista!
These gus are great
I have never, ever written a comment for anything on this website, but I felt I had to for this band. They are the best. I listened to their most recent album after seeing them on this list and was blown away. These guys kick more ass than Havok, Warbringer, and Evile combined. More than any other band on this list that I've heard, these guys remind me of the big four. Except they kick more ass than the big four have in the 21st century. Their newest album (Braindead), the only one I've listened to, is apparently a little slower and more deliberate than their other two. And it kicks SERIOUS ASS. Some of the songs remind me of Slayer, some remind me of Death Angel, and some remind me a little of Morbid Angel. And this guy can actually sing! Listen to the first two songs on Braindead. I am the Antidote is a heavier song, where the dude demonstrates he's absolute kickass growl, and his amazing singing voice, both in the same song. The next one, Riot, was my favorite song as soon as I ...more - fishplay
Listen to thrash all over you and terror hungry
My fave song is "Kill (Those who oppose me)" - it's insanely fast, one of the fastest thrash songs, if not the fastest! Very cool video, too.
"Thrash All Over You" is also remarkable. - Metal_Treasure
Brazilian underground thrash band. Listen to their first EP, caled "Underground Attack"
Australian thrash masters with the influence of legendary thrash masters like Metallica, Megadeth and Slayer. Not only that, but also have their own unique, modern thrash style as well. Fantastic guitarist, vocalist and drummer especially. Everyone needs some sort of a break but it seems as if their drummer never gets tired from his massive speed and technicality! These guys need more support. They surely deserve it.
Check out their debut, plus the iTunes-only follow-up 'Synchronicity' before you remove my post.
