I'm a huge fan of Blackened Thrash, and I'm always on the look for new and exciting bands as well as the old and yet undiscovered ones. From what I can see, there is no existing threads on this genre, so here we go!

What are your favourite bands? Anything you would recommend? Why do you like the genre, and when did you discover it?

I'm hoping for a load of good suggestions and opinions here. Most of the bands i listen to are Norwegian, so a little more diversity would be good

I kind of discovered it when i first listened to Aura Noir a few years back. I fell in love with the fierce tempo and harsh, aggressive vocals. Since then my interest in the genre has grown a lot, and today I would say that it's my favourite genre. (Today, that is. Might not be a year from now)

To start things of, I'll post a few goodies here:

Toxic Holocaust. That is all.

Their (His) lat three albums ...An Overdose of Death, Conjure and Command and Chemistry of Consciousness are some damn fine blackened thrash/crossover.
Behold...

I've heard about Toxic Holocaust I think , but never really gave them a listen! It is now part of my thrash playlist. Great stuff! Exactly what I'm looking for! Thank you

I wouldn't describe some those bands above as Blackened Thrash. Sounds like good ol' fashioned Thrash to me - very early-mid 1980s sounding ala Kreator - Flag of Hate or early Slayer.

They sound pretty good overall.


Anyhow my contribution - in the early Kreator vain: Nocturnal - Storming Evil

Never heard Nocturnal before! Great stuff! There's a Norwegian band called Nocturnal Breed, which is also awesome:

Mostly Thrash with rougher edges I'd say, to keep it simple. Obviously changes a lot between bands (like straight forward Nocturnal Breed is quite different from the more epic early Deströyer 666) but like deadone mentioned, old Thrash is pretty much the base for black/thrash (not weird considering the influence these bands had on the creation of BM genre, like early Slayer being associated with Black Metal, even if it was more the image than anything else).

Allright. I think I'm pretty spot on then, regarding the sound.

In Norway there's a shitload of these bands, and most of them are pretty good as well! But keep posting links to good stuff! I'll gladly give it a listen

I like the genre a lot too. Some songs:

Desaster - The Arts Of Destruction(2012) be sure to listen to their early stuff too



Slaughter Messiah - Black Speed Terror(2013 EP) follow these guys in the future.



Nocturnal Graves - ...from The Bloodline Of Cain(2013) with Shrapnel on guitars.

For the most part I'm not a fan of the descriptor Blackened Thrash:

1. Most European Thrash from 1980s would then be Blackened Thrash as it was far rawer than American (and British) stuff. Even speed metal ala Helloween's first album was quite raw compared to American thrash.

Notable American exceptions were Dark Angel and Possessed.

2. Most of these bands don't have virtually any Black Metal components. Bad production and rawness were prominent in virtually all 1980s European underground metal due to lack of funding. But there's none of the stylistic elements that I'd associate with BM.

3. Blackened Thrash is far a more modern invention and IMO should have more Black components - Destroyer 666 are probably the best example of it.

4. A lot of these "raw" Thrash bands seem to use the term "Black" in the same pointless way that Venom did. I think it's more harkening back to Venom's stylistic and visual aesthetics and not to Black Metal.


Personally I prefer German Thrash as a descriptor over Blackened Thrash. It describes the period that it harkens to far better than Blackened which imo implies certain stylistic features.

D666 can keep Blackened Thrash though!



Oh and I do like the bands posted here.



Dead To This World - I, The Facilitator

These guys are a bit more BM in terms of vocal delivery - very Bathory like though the music is mainly straight forward Thrash:




Bestial Mockery - raw Thrash





The Day Of The Beast - another one in the early 1980s school of Thrash

German thrash would be a good term. The thrash scene in europe originated in Germany, didn't it?

I kind of like bands that has a rawness to it's production. Like it was recorded in some dudes basement. Like Nekromantheon and Obliteration amongst other, that actually record their stuff in a basement. There's a load of these in Norway. A lot of bands has popped up over the last couple of years. A lot of young and talented musicians out there, it seems. Including Inculter that i posted in my first post. Here's a few more examples, for those who might be interested:

Infant Death. They label themselves as a Black Thrash band. Released a demo last year. Edit: And a full length called "War", if I'm not mistaking.



Cockroach Agenda. More towards classic thrash. Not as black. Features two of the members from Inculter.



Great bands you posted btw! Haven't been a single bad suggestion yet!

The commonly used term is "Teutonic thrash" to refer to German-regional thrash.

2. Absu - The Third Storm Of Cythraul (1997)
Here

3. Witchery - Restless & Dead (1998)

4. Byfrost - Black Earth (2010)
Here

5. Antichrist - Forbidden World (2011)

I highly disagree with the Technical... obvious examples like Realm, Intruder, Believer, Souls At Zero, Anacrusis, Watchtower, Hexen.
As in ''fast'' eh, that's really weird you would come up saying Europe has more to show considering most Crossover bands are from USA, and they're pretty fucking fast and in your face.
Even there if you define fast as ''Speed Thrash'' America gets the palm... Metal Church, Abattoir, Detente, Striker, DBC, Znowhite, Helstar, Legacy (...) but w/e
I mean sure you guys got like Mekong, Coroner and Hexenhaus (in terms of tech) and Bulldozer and Stone (for speed) but yeah definitely more bands of those two types hailing from USA.

Though for Black Thrash, you're right Europe has definitely more bands (and quality) with the exception of couple decent bands from USA (though very few) but usually Europe beats everyone as far as Black Metal is involved . But honestly that's pretty much the only type of Thrash metal in which Europe beats the Americas (In terms of everything). Strength in number I guess, also being the cradle of thrash kinda helps I suppose.
