Great list! . The Big 4 takes way too much recognition and there are so many bands that should deserve other type of recognition..

Where the hell is Fear Of God - Within The Veil? More original than 90% of the bands on the list great songs and extremely energetic.


How can one have energetic performance as a criterium and mention Testament - Practice What You Preach? If there is one TAME album it's that one.

Nice list, though I must admit I haven't listened to at least one third of the albums present here. I'll have to dig it

My main complain would be the absence of Paradox's Heresy. Do you disregard this album or do you just consider it not Thrash enough to be on your list? I would also add Impact - Take The Pain

For me 'Dimensions' isn't thrash album. This is a very good technical avant-garde metal.

Thank you for the opinions, man
I like 'Heresy' - high quality thrash (for me) ... but Paradox is a German band.

I guess it's a good reason then

My bad, for some reason I always thought Paradox were an American Thrash Metal band

In fact there are two or three American bands of the same name (mainly heavy metal)
