GarageMetal468's Top Thrash Metal Albums

So after contemplating doing something like this, and being told from people that my reviews, be it for shows, albums, etc., are very good, I figured I may as well do one of these with my favorite genre of metal, Thrash!

A couple things about this:

- I'm keeping it to one album per band, so there won't be two or more albums from the same band on here.

- I'm also including a few thrash bands that have other elements of music in them (i.e. - Black/Thrash, Thrash/Death/Grind, etc.). But the bands I'm going to include are what I find to be primarily thrash. It's kind of hard for me to explain this but you'll see as this moves along.

- These are all thrash albums that I love. Not necessarily life changing or inspirational, but albums that make me appreciate and love the genre.

That's about it. There are 27 albums I have for this so far, a couple more may be added. I have to finalize my list and I will post #27 (or 28, 29, etc.) later today.

Voivod - Killing Technology



After seeing these guys open for Kreator last year I was hooked on them for the longest time. I listened to a good portion of their discography and enjoyed it, but this one stood out the most.

Early Voivod was straight up thrash metal from French Canada but over a short period of time they incorporated more progressive metal elements in their music. This album also has a sort of space theme to it, but Voivod have always been about that. The music on this album goes from complicated passages you'd hear in other prog bands to fast thrash parts, sometimes even combined! It's an interesting yet great listen.

Killing Technology is a perfect example of progressive thrash, and I encourage anyone that enjoys progressive metal and thrash (or one or the other) to check it out.

Highlights:
Killing Technology
Tornado
Ravenous Medicine

Anyway, here's 31!

Razor - Shotgun Justice




With an album cover like that and a questionable production, it's not hard to see why this album is overlooked. But once you disregard those for not even a second, you can see why this album is intense.

This album is a unique gem. The excellent riffing and just all around pissed off attitude is consistent throughout the album. There is not one spot on this album where the energy dies out. That being said, this album is FAST. If you're looking for a fast album with great riffing and consistent energy, this will be the one to go to.

Razor have always been underrated, but it seems that this one is even more so, especially up against their second album, Evil Invaders. But this album goes to show that Canadians make some damn good thrash.

Highlights:
United by Hatred
Stabbed in the Back
Cranial Stomp
