115 Toxik Toxik Toxik is an American thrash metal band originally from Peekskill, New York. Initially active from 1985 to 1992, in 2013 it was announced that Toxik would reform again and start work on its third album.

This list serves no purpose to indicate which band is better than which other. People usually vote for Metallica and megadeth because those are the first thrash bands they get into and therefore have the fondest memories associated with hence all other bands are pale in comparison. The only good thing about this list is that maybe the people who vote for the top 4 bands will hopefully take a look at what's lower on the list. I personally dig toxik, Metallica and pantera because they are so melodic. If you're into more evil dissonant music then slayer, kreator, sepultura are you're things. Voivod are the best of both worlds.

They only did two albums, but they were fantastic.

Toxik Think This is awesome.

116 Cyclone
117 Grinder
118 Laaz Rockit Laaz Rockit Lääz Rockit is a thrash metal band formed in San Francisco, California in 1982. Although one of the lesser-known groups of the Bay Area thrash metal scene, each album in their career has received high critical marks. One of their signature elements were Ibanez guitars adorned with elaborate airbrushed more.
119 Violator

Brazilian thrash metal band formed in 2002. They are awesome.

One of the best old school thrash metal bands! Underrated band...

They formed in 2002 so they can't be old school...
