Amazing and diverse band. Along with Annihilator they are pioneers of techno thrash. They were influenced not only by punk and metall, but also by some progressive rock bands like Pink Floyd and King Crimson, and they do sound quite proggy and sophisticated. If you're open-minded music lover I should advice you to listen to their albums Dimension Hatross and Nothingface - pure masterpieces!
Most underrated thrash ever. Killing Technology, Dimension Hattross and Nothingface are classics, as well as many other songs from throughout their career.
I'm my opinion Anvil are not a thrash band. I do believe they invented thrash though. In 1982 Anvil gave us "Metal on Metal". This album was mostly traditional Heavy Metal except for the last track "666". This song was definitely a thrash song. There is no doubt in my mind that the big four were listening. One year later Slayer, Metallica, and Anthrax were born. Megadeth followed soon after the Metallica split. Anvil created that sound. They ventured into thrash many times, but always stayed loyal to classic Metal. I think Anvil has been denied this truth for too long. They started the thrash movement.
Should be in top 10 these guys are the pioneers of thrash metal!
They are better than anyone American thrash band! - ne6tastnika
I'm a Thrasher, listen to tons of trash bands. But ' hell, when I heard Onslaught, I went crazy.
Gwar should be higher. Gwar is an awesome Thrash band, listen to Gor-Gor, Bring Back The Bomb, and Metal Metal Land - ryanrimmelV 1 Comment
My favorite Thrash band. I love the no-classical elements in their music. They are way better than slayer and anthrax and can even stand up up to the very best of Metallica, Megadeth, and Testament.
Despite being Christian, they are an amazing band. Look at the drums and their latest release, Where Moth and Rust Destroy. Marty Friedman's playing is amazing on it!
Even Though they're Christian, they still stand up to the big four. - thedying12
It's a joke that Trivium are on this list at all. They, along with Bullet For My Valentine Slipknot and As I Lay Dying, are all just different kinds of metal"core". Whiny lyrics with occasional growls over boring riffs and by the book solos.
Trivium ignore all pigeonholes, and with 'Vengeance Falls' have become a classy modern metal band. They're not the best of the best, but they have countless influences to draw upon. The longer metal evolves, the less you will be able to label anyone. They're a thrash band, and a damn good one.
Matt Heafy has a good voice & can sing unlike Dave Mustaine & many other so called heavy metal legends.
NOT THRASHV 5 Comments
These guys slay! Some of the fastest and darkest riffs of the classic thrash era, criminally underrated.
Forbidden is in the top 10. By far the most underrated thrash band in history.
'Twisted Into Form' and 'Omega Wave' are monstrous Bay Area thrash albums.
How these guys are only #42 baffles meV 1 Comment
Its cross over thrash but I guess they belong on this list lol.
I see DRI and SOD but why isn't Suicidal Tendencies on here? The greatest crossover thrash there is and like fifth greatest thrash band.
We talking about thrash here right? ST are 40th?
how bout y'all Wake Up and accept they belong to top ten?
if ya aren't convinced listen to suicidal for life
American way was pure thrash at its best!
We need more thrash/death like this on the listV 3 Comments
Great band with big Megadeth influence
They are in position 30 by then name dirty rotten imbeciles...people with IQ lower than 30 should not vote in lists
Amazing! Listen to Eternal Nightmare and you'll see how badass this band really is. Amazing vocals and killer riffs
Killer riffs on Eternal Nightmare.
Eternal nightmare riffs are the definition of thrash
Surprising, fresh and funny metal. Great stuff!
Best polish metal band
Amazing thrash from poland
Whoever is saying of mice and men is better than megadeath and slayer is a idiot. You clearly no nothing about music. If you did you would understand how easy is to make a metalcore song give it some "meaningful" lyrics get some tattoos and have a whole bunch of idiots lose it.
What the..? It's a metalcore band not a thrash metal band
Man. Of mice and Men is not even thrash what
Wait, aren't these the guys that did "Little Talks? "V 3 Comments
