289 The Reflecting God - Marilyn Manson
290 Time Is Up - Havok
291 Broken Wings - Evergrey V 1 Comment
292 Dragging My Casket - Forbidden

Forbidden's 'Omega Wave' is a beast of the highest order.

293 Awake - Godsmack

A song built for a mosh pit. Is it thrash? If it has to be fast, then no. But does it make you want to bulldoze a building? Big time!

294 Birth of Tension - Overkill V 1 Comment
295 In the Trash - Artillery

More super technical Euro-thrash from 'Terror Squad'.

296 D.N.R - Testament

James Murphy, Chuck Billy, and Dave Lombardo going ballistic on 'The Gathering's' opener. Violence and venom personified. Thrash to go to war with.

297 I - Meshuggah

A 20-minute epic that even they acknowledge don't know how it got made, recorded, or played. A stream-of-consciousness bulldozer.

298 At War With Science - Artillery

A slow burn from the European thrash masters that builds into a crescendo of brutal thrash. This is a journey few but they can create, hence why 'By Inheritance' is regarded as one of the greatest thrash albums ever made. 'Terror Squad' belongs there, too.

299 Sadus Attack - Sadus

Sadus' 1.44 minute slice of mayhem rivals anything Slayer or Kreator have ever done. You'll have to put away any sharp objects when playing this ferocious classic from 'Illusions'.

300 Maze of Torment - Morbid Angel

Yeah, it's death, but it is a also thrash personified in its execution.
