The original post

Alright since the last thread was closed due to lack of clairity I have recreated it. This thread is the same as the thread I created on the old metalstorm. So what thrash metal band has had the biggest influence on METAL. In this thread the influence of the band is irrelevant unless it is an influence on metal and explain your choice don't just name a band or two.

So I think that the most influential thrash bands are Motorhead and Venom because they played a huge influence on all the thrash bands that began in the early 80's.

Easy, Venom. Some would consider them black metal, I would in no way consider them black metal, yet I would consider them thrash, and they formed in '78 and released the first album in '81. And they also influenced black metal as well as thrash.



Hell yeah dude, i totally agree. Venom was a huge infulence for Metallica, Slayer, and Megadeth, plus not to mention the infulence they had on pretty much every form of extreme metal genre like death metal, black metal, and of course thrash metal. At the time no one was faster or heavier than them, period.

I call Venom NWOBHM, so I say Metallica, they were both the biggest and the first, even if I count Venom as more influential

They had their sound unlike any other band, but they were part of the NWOBHM scene. I can't call them thrash.

Yes, they were part of that movement and were on the quintessential NWOBHM label Neat

They may have been part of that movement but their sound is anything but that style of heavy metal.

Like I said before NWOBHM is not a sound. The only genre that is not defined by sound but by it being a period of time.
And soundwise Venom is also nowehere near thrash or even protothrash they sound like a rougher dirtier punkier Motörhead.

Well, they ain't exactly Iron Maiden or Satan, but that doesn't mean they aren't heavy metal.

No matter how many "Home Taping is Killing Music" parodies you read.
