Top 10 Thrash Metal Songs with Progressive Elements

There are thrash subgenres called Progressive Thrash and Technical Thrash where songs have progressive elements by default.
But there are also proggy thrash songs outside these 2 subgenres.

So this list is about all thrash songs with progressive elements - the songs should have at least one progressive element, such as: distinctive prog sound, more classical influences, more complex song structures that are different from the standard structure 'verse-chorus', time signature changes, tempo changes, etc.

The Top Ten

1 One - Metallica

A song with progressive structure - the first half of the song is slow and the second half gets fast. These 2 parts are very different - music in the second half is not the same music of the first half just repeated faster. Plus the second half doesn't have the standard structure "verse-chorus-verse-chorus". - Metal_Treasure

2 Alison Hell - Annihilator
3 Semtex Revolution - Coroner

Coroner were called "the Rush of thrash metal" for their proggy approach to thrash metal.
In this list I included Coroner songs that are with the most progressive elements but Coroner have some less proggy songs that are also great. Check them out or/and my lists about Coroner I made for this site. - Metal_Treasure
