Thrash metal

Thrash metal (sometimes referred to simply as thrash) is a subgenre of heavy metal music, one of the extreme metal subgenres that is characterised by high speed riffing and aggression. Thrash metal songs typically use fast, percussive and low-register guitar riffs, overlaid with shredding-style lead work. Thrash metal lyrics also often deal with social issues using visceral and blunt language, an approach which partially overlaps with the hardcore genre. Read more…|Edit this Artist photo: Sepultura

    Favourite thrash metal albums I've heard: Sepultura - Beneath the Remains, Exhorder - Slaughter In The Vatican, Slaughter - Strappado, Slayer - Reign in Blood. I find this genre pretty boring overall, but these albums really kicked my ass.

    "The only thrash bands worth listening to are Sodom, Carnivore, Slaughter, early Slayer, and Protector." Do you even coroner, voivod or artillery?

    Despite the love and respect I have for thrash metal, I have to admit this is the worst metal genre in terms of originality. It is very repetitive and tends to become tedious at times. It always takes a great effort to find bands doing anything new and worth listening with it nowadays.
