Top Ten Thrash Metal Albums Released In 1986

The Top Ten

1 Peace Sells... But Who's Buying? - Megadeth

As of 10/11/2019, all five remixes have either Master of Puppets or Reign in Blood at #1, and they're only #2 and #3. I don't understand how list order works sometimes - Alkadikce

Peace Sells is better than Master of Puppets.

2 Master of Puppets - Metallica

Peace Sells is better for thrash metal, but Master of Puppets is the better overall album. - Metarock

Love it :D

3 Reign In Blood - Slayer

This album is according to me the best thrash album out there with one of the best thrash songs ever Angel of Death

4 Darkness Descends - Dark Angel

Criminally underrated thrash metal album! Better than "Master of Puppets" if you ask me...

Slayer fans would love this album.

5 Pleasure to Kill - Kreator

Big influence on death metal.

Much better than Game Over.
