Top Ten Heaviest Thrash Metal Albums
The Top Ten
It's fast, brutal, pushed the limits, just all around heavy. When you listen to this album, by the time it's over, you have no idea what just hit you. - ryanrimmel
Heavy but not the heaviest
Haha, people say bands like Metallica influenced extreme metal. Metallica are awesome in their own right, but Creeping Death and Pleasure to Kill are to COMPLETELY different sides of thrash. - Brobusky
This should be number one. Reign in Blood is heavy too, but this album is a little bit heavier!
How is Obsessed by Cruelty and Show No Mercy above this? Have people even listened to this?
This is was just crushing in its day.
It's not even a thrash metal album, only the self titled song is thrash
Created Black Metal... This is 1 hour and 6 minutes of brutal, satanic lyrics and crazy guitar riffs. - ryanrimmel
Sodom was an influential Black Metal act. Their early work was Black Thrash, scary, crazy, dark music while still being Thrash. - ryanrimmel
Can't get heavier thrash than this
Sepultura was Thrash as Thrash can be, but they had the Death Metal vocals in their music which made them the greatest Brazilian Thrash Band ever. - ryanrimmel
Possessed is credited with being the first band to use Death Metal vocals, although they are still pure thrash from the Bay Area scene. - ryanrimmel
Death-infused thrash. Can't get any heavier than this
Slayer's debut scared everyone! About 30 years later, they are still as brutal as ever. - ryanrimmel
Isn't this Slayer's softest album? - Alkadikce
Heavy/Speed Metal, Not Thrash
Venom's debut is crazy. They aren't actually satanic, but people did not know that back then, they were scared of Venom - ryanrimmel
If you didn't vote for this you must not have heard it.
This groove metal
Heavy for Metallica standards, but not as heavy as the very heavy thrash albums. - Userguy44
Drop B tuned... 5 tracks on 7 Strings... Heaviest no doupt
Now this is heavy! Well it's almost a hardcore punk album, but it's still classified as crossover thrash/thrash metal, so...
Not exactly “heavy” in typical terms, especially because of the absence of bass, but still a very sharp, precise, thick, and complex album. One of the best.
More like the softest. Half of the songs aren't even thrash - Alkadikce
This makes Master of Puppets cry like a little girl!
That Album puts "heavy" on a new Level in the Thrash Genre!
Attention! Your Neck could break
Pantera thrash? I thought it was groove metal? - Userguy44
A great heavy, chaotic, fast, and almost atmospheric thrash album. Eerie production on the original mix of the album, and pretty cool effects used with L-R panning and added reverb/echo, etc. make it sound full and interesting, maybe not the heaviest but still pretty thick sounding, especially for it’s time.
This destroys most things on this list.
The title track isn’t even thrash. - Userguy44
Heavier than most of the thrash on here
Why is this the heaviest thrash album? Because it isn't pure thrash. It is a visceral mix of Blackened Death and Thrash. Love this album, love Goatwhore. Definitely heavier than Reign in Blood, lmao people pure thrash isn't very heavy. Like it or not Thrash, especially 80s thrash, is very soft. - shoulderboythemetalhead
