So we just entered 2013, a new year in the metal world. For those not familiar with my Thrash List, I know it can be a bit overwhelming, but calm down, breath, and let me give you few tips on how to browse this thing properly. First, it is important that you understand that it is ordered by years of release. Knowing that, if you're an old school thrash fan, you might not like albums past the year 1995 which is currently marked by Meshuggah's album ''Destroy Erase Improve''. Though if you do like modern thrash, you may proceed past this point. Just take my list like if it was a big encyclopedia of nice thrash releases. Hope you enjoy it and don't be shy to let me know if you do or don't.

Ok well.. Im not too sure Im gonna add any Nevermore lol. Im not saying its bad, not at all, of course not. But Its just... I don't think it actually fits in here. Anyways im sure most people will understand me. Hope so.
I always thought of Nevermore to be more progressive than thrash, so I see why you wouldn't add it to this list.
yes i agree with all above, but specifically this album sounds thrashy and are one of my alltime favorite
PS: i'm a great fan of thrash metal and really enjoyed your list, already expected your answer actually
I'm not sure that many agree with me, but I think Soilwork's "Chainheart Machine" and "A Predator's Portrait" are mainly thrash metal. Give them a spin, even if you don't want to put them on your list; I think you'll like them.
Some which (IMO) should make the cut: Desilence, E-Force, Deathwish, Acid Reign, Lawnmower Deth (those last three all old thrashers from UK)
and a couple I think I still have yet to hear, but got good word: Acrophet & Hexenhaus (same cover art as on Morbid Angel's second album, but earlier)
Also noticed ya haven't added Pant's last two (96 & 00) - I think Trendkill's pretty strong groove, though not for its entire duration (like FbD).
Finally, SSS is nice & newish like Gama Bomb, but more crossover for sure; I'm surprised the old Détente & Fear Of God still have zero mentions; and what of Voodoocult and Grip Inc.? Though I might not be too surprised if they don't get added...
Sorry if it took some time to reply I was away (vaccation) but yeah I'll look into that, might take me some time considering
you fucking overwhelmed me Lollll. And for Nocturnal Fear, it should already be up there.
Lol, I've just noticed that there is no Polish band named Kat. You should check them out, they're here on MS. I strongly recommend listening albums like "Oddech Wymarłych Światów", "Bastard" and "...Róże miłości najchętniej przyjmują się na grobach". Kat is really important band in Polish metal history and it is defined as a precursor of our homebred thrash and heavy metal so I think it is worth considering;d
PS: Also you can check out another Polish thrash bands, Turbo and Alastor. Turbo is on MS.
