A Quick Guide For Thrash Metal, Sex, And Tacos!
Thrash Metal is, and will always be my favorite type of music. No matter how many sub-genres or idiotic names some bands give to their music style, they'll never reach the complex "simplicity" of Thrash metal. It's raw, heavy, fast, aggressive, and has a historical impact that probably no other type of heavy metal style will ever reach.
Thrash Metal can speak about anything, think about almost any subject and I'm sure you'll find a band covering it, it doesn't matter if it is love, hate, life, death, heaven, hell, heroes, villains, politics, comic books, religion, sex, war, high-tech, movies, books, history or whatever you can think about, there is a Thrash metal band and song waiting for you, ALWAYS.
The problem with Thrash is that it is one of the oldest and most explored genres in metal, there is a lot of material to listen and many great bands may pass overlooked just because they are not as famous as some other well-known bands or maybe the contrary, some people think that just because it's Thrash it must be treated as the second coming of the Christ, even if it is not good or creative as it should be to be considered as such.
That's why I wanted to help anyone who's interested in exploring the huge amount of albums that have been released since some bands started releasing music that some people call "proto-thrash". I'm not saying that this is the ultimate list of Thrash metal albums EVARRR, nor I am saying that this albums are the best of the bands displayed here, as I said, I just want to help some people to choose an album iconic or representative from each band. Discovering the rest of every discography shown here is up to the ones who want some more music to enjoy.
To make things easier I picked just one iconic album of my own choice for each band, all of them featured on Metal Storm for further investigation, so, sadly, there are no bands that aren't featured in this web. The rest is easy, listen to the chosen album, and if you like what you hear, you can buy or stream some more albums of that band.
I know that some "famous" albums from well-known bands are not in this list, also there are albums that are not Thrash strictly talking, but trust me, I have a reason for each and every album to be in this list, and listening to them will give you a broader understanding of the evolution and development of Thrash metal.
If you have any comments, suggestions or simply want to tell me how idiot I am for not including your favorite album, drop a comment down below.
It's time to enjoy, bang your head, and never stop the mosh!!!
