Best Thrash Metal Albums


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Outcast - Kreator
102 Raging Violence - Hirax
103 R.I.P. - Coroner

One of the most influential bands in thrash, and, like At The Gates, are often sourced by many bands as the best ever in the underground movement. I'd comment on the album, but this thread has already cost me hundreds of dollars in imports on eBay.

104 No More Color - Coroner
105 Storm Alert - Torture
106 The Music of Erich Zann - Mekong Delta
107 Undisputed Attitude - Slayer
108 God Hates Us All - Slayer

Yes, he does. And if I get to listen to Slayer for an eternity whilst being occasionally pitch forked by some horned freak and overheated after I die, then I'm pretty well prepared, because that's what a Slayer concert is anyway.

109 Diabolus In Musica - Slayer

Just a stab in the dark: you like Slayer?

All Slayer albums are great!

110 Enter the Grave - Evile

One of the most Maligned bands of the re-thrash movement, and undeservedly so, because they're not the Metallica clones all the whispering implies. This is the first of a trilogy of quality albums, from a band on the rise.

111 Monolith - Sylosis

Do not buy this album unless you enjoy being schooled by some of the most talented and aggressive thrashers going round. The vocals will rip your head off, the intricate chugging riffs will make you want to give up playing guitar ever again, as will the explosive leads and tempo changes, and the pulverising bass and drum work. It gets worse, too, because their following album 'Dormant Heart' is even better.

Just bought this one recently, so I'm still undecided how it compares to 'Dormant Heart'. They sound similar with their technical chugga and styles, so, so far, so good, so what?

112 Edge of the Earth - Sylosis

Lol! This album will either go straight over people's heads because of its progressive technicality, and the sheer amount of crazy stuff going on. Like any excellent album, it requires effort upon the listeners part. If you're into Limp Bizkit, shuffle off. If you're into brutal technical thrash, name one band on the planet doing it better than these youngsters.

This album is just riff after riff after riff. The production is a minor detrimental factor, but this is brutal, frenetic, and urgent thrash metal dragged from 30 years ago and brought into the 21st century. If you! re seeking a quick, easy fix, go listen to Limp Bizkit. But if you're not a moron and are into a demanding 70-minute progressive thrash album, here it is.

Ah, I have this on import, so have yet to hear it. Apparently it's their best so my expectations are high.

113 Unto the Locust - Machine Head

It's not 'The Blackening' but it's ok. A bit of a hit-and-miss band for me.

114 The Call - Angelus Apatrida
115 Clockwork - Angelus Apatrida
116 Waste 'em All - Municipal Waste
117 Bloodbath - Suicidal Angels

Just give it a listen! Amazing riffs, nice solos, some really interesting intros out there. Briefly, great greek thrash metal album

I shall give it a listen. One of the few bands I've not heard on here.

Great album from my hommies...Thrash from Greece boys and girls

118 In This Life - Mordred

My goodness! Someone else other than me owns this? It's not thrash, but it was rap/metal crossover well before Anthrax got there.

119 Shogun - Trivium

Maligned, just like any band who is influenced by Bay Area thrash. I don't understand it because they still have their own style, draw from an array of influences, and on this one it is Metallica meets Killswitch Engage meets Trivium. I encourage bands who draw from the best, not the worst, otherwise we'd hear nothing but Korn and Limp Bizkit.

My favourite Trivium album. A concept album that does not remit. There's not enough adjectives to describe this epic.

120 Endless Pain - Kreator

Yes, the first Kreator album I bought, and it was a good one.
