So you think Speed Metal is more to Power Metal or Thrash Metal ? or stand alone ?

Rating: 9 This is a typical German style Thrash Metal album with probably 20% of Power Metal elements in it.

Speed Metal is Speed metal. It's not Thrash. Earlier they were calling Speed to Thrash bands but that shifted later on. Still, there's a lot of Speed in Anthrax or Slayer's first album. But on a deeper level, Speed Metal is stuff like Trojan, Acid, ADX, Blood Money, Warrant, Crossfire, Raven or Helloween's work till Walls. Some bands had the Speed sound and mixed it with Thrash like Iron Angel. Other mxied it with Heavy like Running Wild, others with Power like Helloween later on.

Nowadays Speed is represented by bands like Enforcer, Evil Invaders, Ranger, Speedbreaker and many more and walk hand-with-hand with the ongoing NWOTHM revivalism thing.

About this one, It's a Speed Classic to me, which seems to be a very European thing, specially from Germany and Belgium.

Very well analysed, mostly covered most important points.

But to me the meaning of Speed Metal became vague, unnecessary and redundant nowadays as it was a general term to represent both Thrash and Power Metal in the past. It's quite ridiculous if someone says it's a Speed but not a Thrash metal album. Thrash elements are obviously prevailing in this album.
