321 Soldiers of Misfortune - Sacrifice

I'm a proud owner of all the discography of this canadian legend and very disappointed of the forgotten place that Sacrifice have in the knowledge of fans, this record is a priceless journey!

Sacrifice were underrated, but not by me.

How is this possible? not even one record in the top 20's? this is outrage! there is no more finest and quality TRUE thrash than the Torment in fire, Forward to termination, Soldiers of misfortune, Apocalypse inside and The ones I condemn. Each one of this records are brutal and awesome! Any of those are rival for any in the top 10!

322 Wrath - Lamb of God

You can have them.

323 Dark Roots of Thrash - Testament

Bay Area Thrash from one of the greats. Is anyone doing 80's thrash in the modern day better than these guys? The addition of Hoglan was a great one, whilst Skolnik and Pieterson still deliver big time.

324 No Sleep 'til Hammersmith - Motorhead

Motorhead's best live album, from memory.

325 Metallica - Metallica

'Enter Sandman', 'Sad but True', 'Wherever I May Roam', 'Don't Tread On Me', 'The Unforgiven', 'Nothing Else Matters', 'Of Wolf And Man', 'The God That Failed' 'Misery Loves Company' and 'The Struggle Within' are what's awaiting the listener. I almost listed the entire album, and should have, but I want to listen to it now. People think they sold-out on this one, but they just don't have quality stereos and volume buttons. Epic album!

Way too low on the list. It is probably the most accessible thrash album ever made, and it doesn't compromise in any way. Everyone thinks Hetfield as a drunken boor, but he was, in his time, thrash's greatest poet and rhythm guitarist. Sit down with his lyric sheet and you'll know what I'm on about. On 'Sanitarium' he critiques Psychiatry with the marvellous line, 'They see it right, they see it well, but they think that saves us from our hell'. Profound, no?

Yeah, why not? Finally, the production they deserved. Plus Hetfield's lyrics ( bar the albums opener), are poetic and delivered with fury and venom. This is actually one of my favourites, despite what was inevitably to come after it.

326 Roots - Sepultura

Not my favourite Sepultura, due to the nu-metal influence, but it deserves its spot on here because of its great line-up and a handful of classics.

A true classic and a gem, the song "Roots Bloody Roots" is a timeless classic known by millions.
