Best Thrash Metal Debut Albumsryanrimmel
The Top Ten
I wouldn't call Kill 'em All "garbage". It's a very good album that helped popularize thrash metal. But I agree that Alice In Hell by Annihilator (1989) is a better album than Kill 'em All (1983). For 6 years thrash evolved a lot. Even Metallica themselves got better on their next albums. - Metal_Treasure
Oh, please, Alice In Hell by Annihilator DESTROYS Kill 'em All, even Killing is My Business is better than this garbage, please, Seek and Destroy is a terrible and boring song, the solos are boring and the only good songs are Phantom Lord and The Four Horsement. I can't believe that people thing this is a good album, as I said before, Annihilator firsts 2 albums are 100 times better than this overrated garbage, and The Legacy and Bonded by Blood are better too.
Megadeth, even with this initial lineup, are superior to Metallica for one reason: Dave Mustaine. The riffs on this album are not generic, repetitive, simple power chords like kill Em all. They are complex, intricate, and most importantly, groundbreaking. Nobody was writing like Dave. His riffs hooks and melodies set the foundation for thrash metal, period. - Mike777
Heck of a lot better than KeA.
Most people will vote for an album because it's their favorite band, but not me. Personally, my favorite band on this list is Metallica, but The Legacy is just better than Kill 'Em All, as good as it may be - dlbk03
I think this is one of the three bests thrash metal albums with Rust In Peace and Reign In Blood, just listen to Crystal Ann/Alison Hell and Human Insecticide.
Come on, this is better than Kill 'em All and Killing is my Business.
Kill 'em All is the best, but this should go second. Killing Is My Business... and Business is Good should be 3rd.
The album that launched the Bay Area thrash metal scene!
Criminally underrated thrash debut!
