I know these are personal lists and everything, but when you say one of your top thrash bands isn't a thrash band, well it kind of invalidates your list, doesn't it? Oh, and Machine Head are about as much of a thrash band as Slipknot are.

Someone hasn't heard The Blackening....

I've heard it. It's not thrash. Even if it was, one thrash album doesn't make them a thrash band.

Seriously, though. If "Halo" is a thrash song, my balls are made of cold, hard steel.

I know these are personal lists and everything, but when you say one of your top thrash bands isn't a thrash band, well it kind of invalidates your list, doesn't it? Oh, and Machine Head are about as much of a thrash band as Slipknot are.

:tp:
So don't read my invalidated list, then.
