Old-Skool thrash from way back. Good, too.

494 Piledriver

Good memory. I have their first two. A complete pisstake on their first, then unexpectedly got big, so they went thrash on their next, which failed. I have no idea what happened to them after that...

495 Lääz Rockit Lääz 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.

Yes, a lot of people rate them alongside some of the best thrash had to offer. I haven't listened to them in years though. You've jogged my memory though.

496 Vreid
497 Arcturus
498 Ulver

Yes! Very curious progressive metal. I have one of their albums somewhere. Good quality choice from left-field.

499 In the Woods
500 The Black
