Top Ten Heaviest Thrash Metal Albums

The Top Ten
1 Reign In Blood - Slayer Reign In Blood - Slayer Product Image

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 Pleasure to Kill - Kreator Product Image

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?
