The original post

Posted by Mega-Slayer on 27.09.2006 at 04:39
This thread is dedicated to the 80's Thrash metal scene,primarily underdog groups.This thread isn't meant to decide who the greatest thrash group was or is. Just to talk about bands you are interested in,what albums you consider to be classics, and so forth.A very unnapreciated group with one of THE greatest thrash albums ever released is Dark Angel,"Darkness Descends" was an instant favorite when I heard the opening riff for the first song.One other group I really enjoy is from the late 80's,went by the name of Evildead,they were among the few that had originality in their music at the time,they weren't just another Thrash group.I have only heard their debut "Annihilation Of Civilization",but "Underworld" is also a classic from what i've heard.Viking,Sacred Reich, Whiplash,and Exciter also kick ass.

Haven't read through this thread so i apologise if this isn't true of here but there seems to be a fashion nowadays for forgotten, third-rate thrash and old school death metal bands. It's a pity that anything rare or old and generic has instant cult status because usually the reason it's been forgotten is because it wasn't of any worth to begin with.

I wonder if in 15 years, the piss-poor generic "metalcore" clones that are loathed today will have the same cult status. Thrash died for a reason.

SINDROME I dunno it and cant find nothing about it
SACRILEGE BC - dunno
TARGET - You talk about Belgain band if yes I didnt like it when listened, it was so bad like Annihalator
CHANNEL ZERO - Dunnno



I am in a generous mood, so I am helping you out...

Sindrome were a great thrash band that only released two demos which can be downloaded OFFICIALLY from their website here

Sacrilege BC Great California thrash band more info here

Yes he was talking about the Belgian Target and no they are nto bad they are GREAT, great technical thrash and can't be compared ot Annihilator at all for it is totally different thrash.


Channel Zero are also a Belgian thrash band that sound a bit like Pantera more info here

There's a CD from those demo's from SINDROME available, although hard to find

About CHANNEL ZERO: first album sounds more like FORBIDDEN (their best album)

About TARGET: I'm desperatly searching for their cd "master project genisis"

Thrash as a mainstream genre died when grunge took over. Of course it never disappeared complitely.
And there's really no reason for personal insults if someone voices an opinion contradicting with yours.

Tom got a point, however. It's true that lots of old Thrash and Death Metal bands (and Black Metal bands of the first wave) people praise today were pretty much unnoticed and unknown during the 80s. I was there and old enough to remember. However, it doesn't mean in any way that they sucked and don't worth a good listen today. It's just that I have the feeling lots of people who weren't there at the time greatly overestimate the popularity of those bands back then.

For example, lots of people believe Venom has been a huge influence for the early Norwegian BM bands. It's false. Bathory was a big influence for them, yes. Venom? No. Among those Norwegian musicians of the early 90s, only Aarsett (RIP) listened to Venom.

Imho, i also think Thrash metal has a big survival just right now - if you only take a look at the billings of the (European) summer festivals, you'll find a lot of 80s Thrash bands - Exodus, Lääz Rockit, Testament, Forbidden, Death Angel etc. are touring again!
And If you take a look at the killer releases Testament and Death Angel delivered last year, I bet a lot of people were brought to their older releases through this; and though will learn to appreciate Thrash metal.
For me (ok I know, i am only 20) listening to Thrash metal for about 5 years, I think it never has been so present in the media as at this moment!

so far

don't forget that metal and mostly Thrash metal was underground in the 80's. so the media couldnt know about it. it was also the most extreme style in music and people are "afraid" to show out the "most extreme". do you see often tech and brutal death bands in TV?

And there was a band called Paradox. Anybody heard about them? It's a german power/thash band, their second album (Heresy) was a concept album about the crusades. Very solid!

I realize this is quite an old quote but I concur on this statement. I recently found Paradox while looking for more German Power/Thrash. I can say that I enjoy this mix quite a bit and would recommend them to anyone looking for a good mix of Thrash Metal with some clean vocals, somewhat in the vein of early Anthrax.

Good band indeed I know album ''Heresy'' + myspace songs, realya wesome band, in 80;s from Ger came many such bands but 90% of those are gone n forgotten, many realised 2-3 good albums but then disapeared from scene and this is one of those bands

I think Annihilator - 1989 - Alice In Hell is the best of 80's. in my opinion metallica's master of puppets is the most overrated album ever. i listened to it thousand of times because of another's opinion but still i don't like that. i wanna really know without historical matters why people like this album.

Because of:

1. Awesome intro to Battery and a 5-minute dose of pounding thrash.
2. The epic of Master of Puppets with its timeless riff and solos.
3. The darkness and creepiness of The Thing That Should Not Be.
4. Welcome Home, which is just a great song .
5. Another dose of awesome thrash of Disposable Heroes.
6. Freaking ecstatic feeling you get when in the beginning of the song there are moments where you hear bare bass.
7. The masterpiece of an instrumental that Orion is.
8. Just another final surge of thrash embodied in Damage, Inc.

Well I'll go through it song by song...
BATTERY - A spectacular opener. Whats more to say? Great spanish sounding intro, it comes in and BREAKS YOUR FUCKING SKULL, the lyrics are cool, brilliant solo... Just puts you in the mood for an opus of thrash!

TITLE TRACK - The quintessential "GOD MY WRIST HURTS" exercise! Dun dun DAH dun dun DAH dun dun NAH NAH NAHHHH!!! This song is one of those examples (Just like Disposable Heros and Orion comming up) of 8+ minute songs played by Metallica that sound like 3 minute songs just because their so dense with detail.

THE THING THAT SHOULD NOT BE - Groovy, main riff as catchy as all fuck, fantastic lyrics, awesome wahhhh waHhHhHhHh solo... A winner in my book... Overrated NEVER.

SANATARIUM - Truly pretty/haunting accoustic lick. If your a fan of One Flew Over the Cukoos nest the lyrics are a real winner. When it gets "Metal" it's really amazing "JUST LEAVE ME ALONE!" CHUG CHUG CHUG CHUG CHUG CHUG CHUG CHUG CHUG! Probably my favorite guitar solo on the record because, to me, it's the most progressive.

DISPOSABLE HEROS - Tied for my favorite on the disk... It's amazing when the trippy part in the beginning with the WaaahhhhHHHHHahhhhhHhhh turns thrashy and just pulls your balls right off. The lyrics are gold, about the absurdity of the human sacrifice of war. The chorus is simply catchy as hell (BACK TO THE FRONT!) Incredible solo. Nuff said

LEPER MESSIAH - Tied for my favorite on the disk... Groove groove groove. Really angering lyrics. A truly shredding solo (The Alexi Laiho sweep lol). The real greatness of the song is right after the solo when it goes back to the bridge riff at double time. Gives me chills every time.

ORION - Cliffs GREATEST moment.I really don't have much to say besides a killer instrumental

DAMAGE INC. - The album bookends itself with another RIP YOUR FUCKING FACE OFF song! GENIUS!

So... I'm FULLY a believer in the concept that everyone is entitled to their opinion but... Why would you suggest Master of Puppets is the most overrated album ever? Wouldn't you kind of... Think of much worse much MORE overrated ones? I dunno... Anything with a music video on "Metal Mania" besides the occasional REAL metal song? Any lame ass glam record? Hah NO you don't think of those... To you the cake goes to Master of Puppets... The album that gave thrash some credability outside the thrash circle in the 80's.

I too think Puppets is overrated, but it still is a very good album. I personally think that Ride The Lightning is better. I honestly think that the best thrash album is a toss up between Reign in Blood, Bonded by Blood, and Ride the Lightning.

80's thrash - wow - bringing back memories (sobs)

- Coroner "Punishment for Decadance" ...Masked Jackal...thankyou headbangersball
- Prong "Beg to Differ" ...this Cd's production is so good you'd think they hooked up with U2's or Madonna's producer
- Voivod "Dimension Hatross" ...Piggy's guitar stands out here
- Death Angel "Act III" ...maybe too mainsteam but the songs are so well written

there are so much more but these just popped up
