Top 10 Thrash Metal Songs with Progressive Elements

Metal_Treasure
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
