I agree it's not thrash. I actually agree with all 10 items submitted by the author. - Metal_Treasure
Sounds nothing like thrash metal. More like a simply heavy metal song with a thrashy riff like some Iced Earth songs or Helloween's Gorgar.
No way it's speed metal. This song is fast, but the music itself nothing like speed metal, it's actually a fast paced rock and roll/hard rock song, or if it's important to consider it metal then it's a fast paced trad. heavy metal song, but not speed metal.
The title mislead the most people... it's actually an early thrash metal song and not early black metal.
Haha, I love this one - a thrash song named Black Metal with lyrics mentioning rock N' roll: "Lay down your souls to the gods rock n' roll". - Metal_Treasure
Not the first HEAVY metal song, but the first DOOM metal song. by the way I could add almost every early Black Sabbath songs (1970-1973) as the same category, but it was the first song they released so I added this one.
It's a very common mistake - because Helloween are mostly power metal, people think that each and every song is power metal. Same for thrash bands - not every Metallica or Megadeth song is thrash, and so on. - Metal_Treasure
Actually, these bands have more non-thrash metal songs than thrash metal songs.
Not a very big mistake, but this song is almost on every power metal lists, while it's trad. heavy metal.
Not a viking metal song. Not even metal by the most, but some people accept it as a heavy metal song.
The riff is thrashy, but it's not exactly thrash metal. It's simply heavy metal.
Traditional heavy metal, not thrash.
Traditional heavy metal, not power metal.
It's not thrash metal. Fast paced trad. heavy metal.
