    Don't know much about it, favourite albums are:

    Megadeth - Rust in Peace (easily a contender for favourite album of all time, the guitar work is just so tight) :coma:

    Anthrax - Among the Living

    Metallica - Ride the Lightning

    Slayer - Reign in Blood


    Cheers.

    I should probably expand my horizons to Thrash at some point given that I listen to most other "main" sub-genres of metal, so I'll be watching this thread :cookie:

    Maybe More Death metal than Thrash metal but listen to Death. Their earlier stuff is thrashy. I much prefer their later stuff though as it's a lot more melodic and better overall.

    Good thrash metal does not exist.

    I know I'm most probably going to get negged for my presumed 'ignorance'.

    But I've tried to like it. It's just noisy, inane shit for drunk men to 'mosh' to or for underweight gaunt teens to find comfort in. There is no beauty to be found in thrash metal.

    Yeah, I said it.
    Whatever floats your boat. I usually listen to it when I'm feeling masculine/reckless/angry etc.!

    I take it you've already heard the likes of South of Heaven, Hell Awaits and Killing is My Business already given you've taken a liking to the big 4's best respective albums, if not then definitely check out that stuff, some of Megadeth's later stuff is pretty swell too although generally individual songs rather than entire albums (Sleepwalker and Washington is Next from United Abominations for example)

    Listen to Victims of Deception by Heathen. Absolutely phenomenal progressive thrash. Eternal Nightmare by Vio-lence (first band of Robb Flynn and Phil Demmell of Machine Head fame) is insane, but the vocalist takes some getting used to. Agent Orange by Sodom, Pleasure to Kill by Exodus and basically most of Destruction's early stuff is really good German thrash too. Check out early Exodus (specifically Bonded by Blood I guess since it's their most well-known and arguably their best).


    Other stuff I'd recommend would be early Annihilator, Forbidden, Razor, Death Angel's first album, everything up to The Ritual by Testament, Realm, Metal Church and Dark Angel. Definitely the latter, Darkness Descends is a ridiculous album and it's two followups, Leave Scars and Time Does Not Heal get even moreso, the latter has so many riffs it's ridiculous.

    Theres plenty of good new stuff too, check out Evile and Warbringer's first two albums, Sanctity's debut and MUNICIPAL WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASTE (most fun crossover band ever)

    Oh, and this might be flamed somewhat, but Night of the Stormrider by Iced Earth is a pretty solid album too, it's not thrash in the sense that most of the above are but it's arguably thrash metal and it's a fine album irrespective of how badly their material tanked later on in their career.

    fakeedit; actually, listen to Blotted Science too. It's very extreme and some of the riffage is very much death metal influenced rather than thrash (it's instrumental though, so no death vocals if that's a barrier to you enjoying it), but it's good enough to warrant a mention here imo.

    Thanks a lot, loads to keep me going there. I don't mind death metal vocals either so it's not a barrier.

    Forgot a few, try Flotsam and Jetsam, Voivod, Sabbat (the English one), Artillery, Laaz Rockit, Blind Illusion's debut (their only other album is awful, don't even go there), Nuclear Assault, and Sepulturas early stufff (although someone may have already mentioned that).

    That should keep you going for a while I hope

    And ignore the above poster, lol :P

    Ulysses' Siren come up with some pretty technical thrash metal, it seems. I haven't heard much of them besides the odd listen on YouTube.

    I was going to suggest the obvious and tell you to check out Rust in Peace, upon seeing this thread but ah well.

    Edit: Here comes the neg. Steady now, you might knock me off balance. :rofl:
    Oh, silly me. I thought music was a subjective thing that depended on personal tastes.

    Just because you don't like something, doesn't make it ****.

    Try Aspid.

    I would say buy the album but you'd be lucky to find it and the band won't get money for it. Just download it.
