Top 10 Thrash Metal Questions to Ask Users of TheTopTensryanrimmel
The Top Ten
Definitely Megadeth, they put out a lot of great thrash records where as Metallica only had 4 - ryanrimmel
Metallica. No question about it. - Fabio-Fabulous-of-swag-town
Personally, I believe that Metallica was way more influential, but I prefer Megadeth. Both are amazing bands though. - Alpha101

Rust in Peace! So many great Megadeth songs there! And this is THRASH, not heavy metal. So it's Megadeth, not Ride the Lightning.
For me, Reign in Blood. Rust in Peace is a close 2nd though - ryanrimmel
Kill em all! My profile picture for 6 months! - gemcloben
Ride the Lighting probably my favorite album of all time - christangrantV 9 Comments
Metallica was not the first thrash metal band, as Slayer, Exodus, Overkill, and Venom were formed before then. I guess Venom is the first thrash metal band.
Queen and overkill helped. But venom were the first thrash band. Al the big 4 did was popularise it. - gemcloben
Bands like Anvil, Queen, and Overkill all helped lay the foundations, but VENOM was the first thrash band in my opininon - ryanrimmel
Venom I think - christangrantV 1 Comment
Megadeth, because this list is Thrash Metal. Yeah, Megadeth may have sold out, but they came back to their roots and gone great in the 21st century. Though not popular, they were still creative. The new albums still had some distinct sound. If the list were Heavy Metal, Metallica would win in no contest, even with Iron Maiden on it.
Overkill is the best Thrash Metal band since they never really made much bad music, and had better music than any band in the big four. I also like the singer in this band, and his interesting singing voice. However, Exodus, Kreator, Annihilator, and Slayer are also great thrash metal bands.
I don't care who sold out and who did not. It's Metallica. - Kiteretsunu

Overkill have been more consistent. - IronSabbathPriest
I don't know any songs by Overkill so I'd have to say Anthrax. - Alpha101
No competition at all. Anthrax is better - ryanrimmel
Overkill, Anthrax is good to - christangrantV 4 Comments
I actually prefer Peace Sells... But Whose Buying over Rust in Peace. However, Reign in Blood is better than both of those albums.
Rust In Peace. I only like some songs from Reign in Blood. I like at least 60% of Rust in Peace.
I prefer countdown to extinction to rust in piece. So, I think they should swap those - gemcloben
Reign in Blood - christangrantV 8 Comments
This is tough. I'm gonna go with Testament because Chuck has a more powerful voice - ryanrimmel
I only like one song by each band. Not a big fan of either of them. - Alpha101
Testament. But I like Exodus a lot. - IronSabbathPriest
Exodus - christangrantV 2 Comments
Just think, PHANTOM ANTICHRIST. The best comeback album ever. - IronSabbathPriest
Pleasure to Kill is easily a top 5 thrash album. Kreator - ryanrimmel
Sodom - christangrantV 3 Comments
Havok plays with more energy and intensity. But Evile is great too, they sorta remind me of Testament - ryanrimmel
Evile is great, and I like Underworld, but I guess Havok is better.
Havok are the best modern thrash band. - gemcloben
Havok! - Brobusky
Rust in Peace, although I like Metallica more than 'deth. - BrobuskyV 1 Comment
I like both, but I never became a huge mega-fan of Coroner. Annihilator wins for me - ryanrimmel
TOUGH! Annihilator, but it's basically tied in my opinion. - Brobusky
Coroner! Because Coroner has been consistently better.V 3 Comments
Obviously, Holy Wars... The Punishment Due. The riffs are so very catchy and its still my favorite metal song of all time. - LightningBlade
That is tough. But in a Thrash Metal basis, it's Holy Wars.V 1 Comment
Peace Sells... But Whose Buying is a really great album. - LightningBlade
Yes, it is a band that is currently split up. They were mostly New York based musicians. It was put together, produced, directed and arranged by The Rods drummer Carl Canedy, in partnership with Blue Cheer guitarist Andy MacDonald, upon the instigation of Combat Records. - LightningBlade
