Best Thrash Metal Songs Not Released by the Big 4


The Top Ten

1 Bonded by Blood - Exodus

I made the mistake of saying testament for some reason. I knew it was Exodus, but it won't let me change it. - ryanrimmel

'Bonded by Blood' is an Exodus song. - Saisagar

I'll try to fix it but it may take some time to appear with the correct band. - Metal_Treasure

Paul balof is worst metal singer in history. So I prefer the 2008 versions of this song.

2 Over the Wall - Testament Over the Wall - Testament
3 Agent Orange - Sodom
4 Allison Hell - Annihilator

So underrated, this song is amazing.

5 Black Prophecies - Dark Angel

My favorite song from this band and one of my all time favorites. I'd call this song epic thrash (not only because it's 8:30 min long).
Gene Hoglan wrote the lyrics for this track - probably the longest thrash lyrics ever (and socially relevant, too). - Metal_Treasure

6 Piranha - Exodus
7 People of the Lie - Kreator
8 Kill (Those Who Oppose Me) - Lost Society

Most of you may not know this song/band but the song is over the top (came out 2013). This is the fastest song on this list.
To begin, try the sample below and you will be convinced this song deserves to be in the top 10. Then find the awesome video on youtube and enjoy it because these teens from Finland rock. - Metal_Treasure

9 Refuse/Resist - Sepultura
10 Human Insecticide - Annihilator

The Contenders

11 Enemy of God - Kreator
12 Elimination - Overkill
13 The Toxic Waltz - Exodus

Captures what thrash metal should be like - Toothgrinder

14 Dead Embryonic Cells - Sepultura
15 Souls of Black - Testament
16 Ironbound - Overkill
17 More Than Meets the Eye - Testament
18 Root of All Evil - Dead Brain Cells (D.B.C.)

It's not available on YouTube, Itunes didn't find a song sample to attach here ...
It's proggy thrash from Canada. - Metal_Treasure

19 Schizos (Are Never Alone) Parts I & II - Annihilator
20 Blacklist

Just a masterpiece from a band which should join the big four to make the big five

This isn't an album. It's a song.

21 Nuclear Winter - Sodom
22 Arise - Sepultura
23 Black Metal - Venom
24 Mad Butcher - Destruction
25 Pleasure to Kill - Kreator
26 Don't Believe - Artillery

Artillery formed in 1982 in Denmark. These guys created this masterpiece and released it in 1990. This song is the highlight of the album "By Inheritance" and it is a beautiful power ballad with melody but the chorus, bridge, and solos kick your ass with it's relentless thrashing power. The Stutzer brothers are amazing for creating this masterpiece!

This song is amazing

YEAH! Don't Believe is the best thrash ballad ever! m/

27 The Legacy - Testament


28 Inner Self - Sepultura
29 Negative Reinforcement - Dead Brain Cells (D.B.C.)

This one is available on YouTube but their best song is 'Root of All Evil' (IMO). - Metal_Treasure

30 Return to Serenity - Testament
31 Electric Crown - Testament
32 Nightmare - Venom
33 Tempo of the Damned - Exodus
34 The Years of Decay - Overkill
35 Critical Mass - Nuclear Assault
36 Satan is Real - Kreator
