So another year has gone by in Thrash Metal history, with this new year comes a new presentation. So by now you should know my list, if not well stop sleeping son. Consider this piece of work as a ''Searching Tool'' or some sort of ''Encyclopedia'' of the greatest Thrash Metal releases. From the very known classics like *Exodus - Bonded By Blood* to the more hidden jewels like *Believer's - Extraction From Mortality* 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 it efficiently.
- Browsing My List - A How To Guide -
First of all, albums are ordered by years of release so if you don't like modern thrash metal (Resurgence and/or Revivalists) just don't go past Meshuggah's ''Destroy Erase Improve'' album, it pretty much draws the line between old school and modern thrash in the list. And no I don't consider ''Resurgence Thrash Metal'' to be a legitimate style, it's just to make it easier for you guys, when browsing the list.
Also, I've added every single album's thrash style. So if you like Death, Crossover, Prog, Tech, Power, Black, Grind and even Groove Thrash.. it's all there suit yourself.
Now that you know this, if you found a band that you like very much and can't stand searching for other albums of that band that I might have suggested because the list is too goddamn long and it fucks your brain up, don't panic. Hit Ctrl + F, and write the band's name in the created box (under the browser's search bar), then click NEXT, NEXT (...) to jump from one album to the other. Simple ain't it? You can do this with the style, country or even a chosen year.
Lastly, albums with a ''★'' after the genre's description represents albums that I consider as being classics of the genre or something you shouldn't miss, no I am not the all mighty reference guru in Thrash Metal, yes I do know a lot and yes it is possible for you to disagree with me on that matter. I do hope that this little guide did help you and if not, press Alt + F4, in order to gtfo. Have fun.
P.S. Feel free to recommend me new thrash please.
