Warbringer - Waking Into Nightmares




This is one of the very few albums released recently that I can call a monster of an album. Following a solid but badly produced (in terms of sound quaility) debut, Warbringer came back with a hell of a second album.

These guys take a shit ton of influence from Exodus and Demolition Hammer, and it shows very much in their music. Warbringer does a great job of combining the sound of both aforementioned bands on this album. They have the riff and thrash style of Exodus and the ferocity of Demolition Hammer.

There are two big highlights on this album, the first being the drumming. Nic Ritter is one hell of a drummer on here. You can definitely tell he's had some background with jazz drumming with the fills he plays throughout the album. The instrumental track Nightmare Anatomy is a perfect example of his technical drumming. The second highlight is vocalist John Kevill. This guy is a MONSTER at what he does. He does an excellent job on here sounding chaotic and in your face. And on top of that, he sounds even more intense live!

This is probably one of the best thrash albums to come out in the past few years. It's fast, technical and all around awesome. Also, if you have a chance to see them live, DO IT! Out of the 200+ bands I've seen live, Warbringer are in the top 5 best live acts for me.

Highlights:
Jackal : Best opener EVER!
Severed Reality
Senseless Life

S.O.D. - Speak English or Die




Another crossover thrash one here, actually the last crossover thrash album on this list. But this here is a legend of legends. If you don't know already, Stormtroopers of Death (referred to as S.O.D. a lot) was started by Scott and Charlie from Anthrax, as well as Dan Lilker and Billy Milano.

This album is filled with a lot of short songs, even more riffs and a lot more humor. The song concepts are all over the place here, but in a good way. The idea of this band was for Scott Ian to express his crossover ideas and make it funny while he was at it, and he and the other 3 made a damn good album.

The whole album is entertaining, but what I really love the most about it is the fast d-beat drum parts (I'll identify them in the highlights). It just sounds amazing to me and really makes the album.

This isn't just standard crossover thrash, this is a legend and a landmark in metal history. One of the best albums in the genre to come out. This album is also a huge influence on crossover bands later on in the 80s and 90s. All the songs are really highlights but the ones here are my 3 favorites.

Highlights:
Kill Yourself (0:23 for the part I love)
Fist Banging Mania (0:36 for the part I love)
Pussy Whipped

Not a huge fan of their later thrash stuff, the only one that would be on here is Dealing With It and that's more of a hardcore punk album to me.

Anyway, we've reached the top 10! For highlights I'll be posting 5 of my favorites from the album instead of 3. Numbers 10, 9 and 8 really need no introduction since we all know how awesome these albums are, ESPECIALLY #9 with some of you

Metallica - Ride the Lightning




Out of the first four Metallica albums, it's either really hard or really easy for people to come up with just one favorite. For me it was really easy, this album has been in my life for the longest time and it's an all around incredible album.

I'm sure everyone on here has heard this album at least once in their life, so we all know what to expect. Metallica took a more melodic approach in their music after Kill Em All, and it turned out amazing. There is still a lot of thrash in this album as well, what with some of the faster riffs being some of the best on this album.

When the album starts out with the slow classical guitar and builds into the monster of a song that is Fight Fire With Fire, you know you're in for a great listen. Everything is varied throughout the album, some songs being faster than others. But the best part about it is that it starts in an epic way, and ends in an even more epic way. The Call of Ktulu is one of my favorite and possibly the best instrumental metal tracks of all time and it couldn't be a better closer.

This album has everything in a metal album done right. Fast songs that are great to headbang to, amazing guitar solos, catchy choruses and riffs, and a ballad that everyone can sing along to. While I'm not exactly the biggest Metallica fan, this album was one of the very first metal albums I listened to and actually the first metal shirt I ever bought, so it has a special place with me.

Highlights:
Fight Fire With Fire
Ride the Lightning
Fade to Black
Trapped Under Ice
The Call of Ktulu
