One of the best thrash bands ever!
Evile are an English thrash metal band from Huddersfield, formed in 2004. The band's debut album, Enter the Grave, was produced by Flemming Rasmussen at Sweet Silence Studios in Copenhagen, Denmark and was released worldwide in 2007 by Earache Records to critical acclaim by fans and critics alike.
My favorite band...easily the best of the new wave thrash bands, all of their albums are similar and different from each other in a lot of good ways. Just listen to Skull and tell me this band isn't criminally underrated.
24 Gama Bomb
Gama Bomb is a thrash metal band based in Northern Ireland. Their 2009 album Tales from the Grave in Space was one of the first albums ever released as a completely free download while signed to a record label.
Voivod is a Canadian heavy metal band from Jonquière, Québec. Their musical style has changed several times since the band's origin in the early 1980s.
Best musical progression of ALL metal. an almost perfect discography
Kreator is a German thrash metal band from Essen. Their style of music is similar to that of their compatriots Destruction, Sodom and Tankard; along with those three bands, Kreator has been referred to as one of the "big four" of Teutonic thrash metal, and they are often credited with helping pioneer ...read more.
Every bit as good as the Big 4...listen to Slayer's Show No Mercy and then Kreator's Pleasure to Kill... You will definitely have received your dose of thrash!
It's not underrated, but it doesn't get the credit it deserves. Most thrashers listen to a bit of it.
Greatest thrash band on the planet!
Testament is an American thrash metal band from Berkeley, California. Formed in 1983 under the name Legacy, the band consists of vocalist Chuck Billy, guitarists Eric Peterson and Alex Skolnick, bassist Steve DiGiorgio and drummer Gene Hoglan.
As far as talent goes they are looking the overrated "Big Four" in the rear view mirror.
Chuck Billy - From songs like Rise Up and The Formation Of Damnation to ballads like The Legacy and Return To Serenity the most versatile and talented vocalist.
Eric Peterson - Great guitarist, compliments their music really good
But this where they give other bands a run for money
GENE HOGLAN - best of the best drummers in metal
ALEX SKOLNICK - One of the best shredders of all time really
Still in doubt listen to
The Formation Of Damnation
Souls Of Black
Dark Roots Of The Earth
True American Hate
Practice What You Preach
TESTAMENT = Heaviest Thrash Metal Band
It is not the heaviest thrash band (Dark Angel and Kreator are much heavier) and they are not underrated. If anything, slightly overrated.
28 Metal Church
Metal Church is an American heavy metal band. They originally formed in San Francisco, California in 1980 before relocating to Aberdeen, Washington the following year and briefly using the name Shrapnel.
You know a band's underrated when it's #36 on the Underrated thrash list!
Artillery is a Danish thrash metal band. They participated in the early development of the genre, and their highly energetic, riff-centric and often fast-paced music is similar in style to that of Voivod, Coroner, Megadeth and Sabbat from the same era.
Destruction is a German thrash metal band. They are considered one of the "The Big Four" of the German thrash metal scene, the others being Kreator, Sodom and Tankard.
Overdose was a Brazilian thrash metal band that was active from 1983-1995. Although the band never gained a huge following, they are considered the forerunners of the Brazilian thrash metal scene, and are cited as Sepultura's biggest influence.
Overdose is known as sepultura's biggest influence. They were the first Brazilian thrash band. - ryanrimmel
