Top 10 Most Favorite Extreme Metal Subgenres


The Top Ten

1 Thrash Metal Thrash Metal Thrash metal is an extreme subgenre of heavy metal music characterized by its fast tempo and overall aggression. The songs usually use fast percussive beats and low-register guitar riffs, overlaid with shredding-style lead work.The genre evolved in the early 1980s from combining the fast drum beats more.

It's not the most extreme subgenre but officially it is from the group of the extreme metal subgenres. - Metal_Treasure
