Top Ten Heaviest Thrash Metal Albums

The Top Ten
1 Reign In Blood - Slayer

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.

Heavy but not the heaviest

2 Pleasure to Kill - Kreator

This should definitely be #1. While Reign in Blood is a landmark album and it's amazing as well, you can't really get any heavier than the legendary KREATOR! enough said.

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.

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?

3 Black Metal - Venom

Created Black Metal... This is 1 hour and 6 minutes of brutal, satanic lyrics and crazy guitar riffs.

It's not even a thrash metal album, only the self titled song is thrash

4 Beneath the Remains - Sepultura
5 Obsessed by Cruelty - Sodom

Sodom was an influential Black Metal act. Their early work was Black Thrash, scary, crazy, dark music while still being Thrash.

6 Epidemic of Violence - Demolition Hammer

Can't get heavier thrash than this

nothing heavier than this to be considered thrash

7 Seven Churches - Possessed

Possessed is credited with being the first band to use Death Metal vocals, although they are still pure thrash from the Bay Area scene.

pretty much death metal

8 Tapping the Vein - Sodom

Death-infused thrash. Can't get any heavier than this

9 Schizophrenia - Sepultura

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.

10 Persecution Mania - Sodom
The Contenders
11 Spectrum of Death - Morbid Saint

heaviest vocals out of everyone in this list

12 Show No Mercy - Slayer

Slayer's debut scared everyone! About 30 years later, they are still as brutal as ever.

Isn't this Slayer's softest album?

13 Darkness Descends - Dark Angel
14 Arise - Sepultura
15 Release from Agony - Destruction
16 Welcome to Hell - Venom

Venom's debut is crazy. They aren't actually satanic, but people did not know that back then, they were scared of Venom

17 Tortured Existence - Demolition Hammer
18 Hell Awaits - Slayer
19 Agent Orange - Sodom
20 Kill 'Em All - Metallica

Heavy for Metallica standards, but not as heavy as the very heavy thrash albums.

21 Illusions - Sadus
22 M-16 - Sodom

If you didn't vote for this you must not have heard it.

23 Far Beyond Driven - Pantera

This groove metal

24 God Hates Us All - Slayer

Drop B tuned... 5 tracks on 7 Strings... Heaviest no doupt
