The Metal Art Of Thrashing (Ordered By Years)

So you're seeking some good ol' (or new) Thrash Metal and you don't know where to look? Recommendations are running low and you're tired of wandering forums aimlessly, only to find one or two albums that you've probably already heard of?...If so, my friend, then stop searching and welcome to my little sanctuary. Nowadays, most would say that I'm a complete Thrash addict, always in need of it's fix, and they would be right. In order to keep my addiction under control and share it with all of you Thrash Metal maniacs, I've created this monstrous list. You may use my precious creation as an ''Encyclopedia'' of sort, in which I stored what I consider to be the best Thrash releases of all time. From the acclaimed classics like *Exodus - Bonded By Blood* and *Kreator - Pleasure To Kill* to the more hidden jewels like *Believers - Extraction From Mortality* and *Anacrusis - Suffering Hour* or even more recent gems like *Skeletonwitch - Beyond The Permafrost* and *Vektor - Black Future*, I've got it all. I know it might look exhaustive but after many user's complaints I decided to add this guide so here are few tricks to browse this monster of a list efficiently.

1. Discharge - Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing
2. Metallica - Kill 'Em All
3. Suicidal Tendencies - Suicidal Tendencies
4. Slayer - Show No Mercy
5. Dr. Know - Plug-In Jesus

They are on covers of every Metal genre and staged in all ways one can think of: Boobs! Noticing that there are are a few covers with this part of the female body (NO man boobs - NO Manowar) on it, I had the idea to make a list with those CDs. At the beginning, there were only 25 albums on it -which is not very much-, but with looking out for boobs on Metal covers, it became longer and longer. And now, it is a list with 209 albums and suggestions are always welcome!

1. Abaddon Incarnate - The Last Supper
2. Abrasive - Awakening of Lust
3. Abrasive - The Birth...Born In Sodom
4. Acheron - Rebirth: Metamorphosing Into Godhood
5. Acrimonious - Sunyata

Space Metal!

***Currently working through suggestions and adding some spacey non-metal things when they cross my mind***
As a lover of all things sci-fi I find metal to be the most accommodating of genres when it comes to themes of space/aliens. This is a list of those albums which use this theme and/or evoke an overall 'spacey' atmosphere and which I find particularly intriguing and enjoyable. No order for now and a work in progress (recommendations most welcome) Last Updated: 9th April 2014

1. Atoma - Skylight
2. Ayreon - The Universal Migrator Part I: The Dream Sequencer
3. Dol Ammad - Star Tales
4. Star One - Space Metal
5. Pagan's Mind - Enigmatic : Calling
