Good Thrash Metal Bands


Plano Skywalker

Recommended Posts

Alright, I know a number of us have talked about metal bands of late.

Let me explain my motivation--I am compiling a rather large mp3 playlist of nothing but metal.

 

I have:

 

* all the "extreme metal" I need (including death, black and jazz-influenced stuff).

 

* all the Power Metal I need (the Blind Guardians and Judas Priests of the world).

 

 

I also have some thrash: Metallica, Anthrax, Testament, Metal Church, Megadeth.

 

Thrash is my favorite (although Power Metal runs a close second) and I want to find any gems out there that may pass just under the radar screen.

 

Any suggestions?

Somehow I have hard time trying to remember bands that play good thrash and do not sing in Finnish. Must be because it's 2:35 here.

 

Well, you could try Destruction, or Behemoth. Death-thrash, but who cares. Then there's Mastodon, that's borderline thrash and Yakuza that's borderline jazz. Just hook up with some metal fora and ask stuff there. They'll give you a much better intro to thrash. Hell, you might even get to watch a flamewar.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DRAGONFORCE!!! :D

I'll ask Baley.

 

Edit: Yeah, I said I suck at remembering bands:

 

The grand old man of thrash, Kreator. Pantera and Sodom. Voivod. Celtic Frost and Venom for old times sake. And Bathory started as thrash before going all viking. Some say the vikingy bits were still thrash. Exodus, Mot

Thrash/Power sounds like the most unsuccesful hybrid ever, but whatever. I haven't heard much of IE.

 

Sepulture are a mixed pack. Some say the albums before Chaos AD were the thrashiest. Other say it was the other way around. Some argue that everything sucked after Calavera left. I dunno.

 

Soulfly is ok too.

Machine Head

Only get first album and Ashes of Empires. Everything else is neuemettuhl.

 

And Plano, I'll look into Iced Earth.

And it's totally not thrash metal, but try to find albums from a band called Eternal Tears of Sorrow(ETOS). They are awesome. And only mildly gothy, even though the name is horrid. Chaotic Beauty, A Virgin and a Whore plus Before the Bleeding Sun are the best albums, although Vilda Mannu is okayish.

 

Just promoting 'cos I can.

Aside from the most obvious Slayer and others already mentioned above, i would heavily recommend Vio-lence. The lead-guitarist later formed Machine Head.

You're so reported to the RIAA, what are you thinking, stealing food from the mouths of the musician's kids! For shame. :'(

Ha! Just for the record, I generally rip my own mp3s based on albums (and compilations!) that I buy.

 

ripping mp3s for your own use is perfectly legal.

Dude, I pirate everything I don't want to support.

there is an interesting middle ground: used cd shops.

 

sure, you don't get full value but you can recycle your not-frequently-used cds to some extent.

 

I just don't like the idea of peer-to-peer piracy (and I don't like spyware and such either).

I live in a local second hand cd/comic/game/book-shoppe. Well, not live, but you get the idea. Most of my music comes from there. I only venture to a real store, when there's somehting out I'm very excited about and wish to show support to the authors.
