I had never considered what a landmark album this was in the early days of thrash until seeing it in this timeline. Awesome thread.

Even though I don't like thrash that much (I really only like Metallica and some Megadeth), this is a cool thread idea.I might make one for glam or power metal some time in the future after my "Top 100 Albums" thread raps up.

Enough of this glam talk in my thrash thread!


Dark Angel - We Have Arrived - November 5, 1984

Some bands who attain greatness at some point in their careers have rather mediocre debuts. Dark Angel is one of those bands. We Have Arrived is neither good nor bad -- it's just kind of there. There are flashes of brilliance to be sure, hell "Merciless Death" is one of the best songs they've ever written but it sounds a hell of a lot better on Darkness Descends. "No Tomorrow" has some good moments too, as does the title track but the over all feel just isn't the vicious, riffdiculous Dark Angel we would all come to love.

Standouts: Merciless Death, We Have Arrived

Score: 5/10

Destruction - Sentence of Death - November 10, 1984

Destruction's first EP was pretty indicative of the sound they would always play -- definitely more melodic than Sodom but more abrasive than Metallica, their sound is a lively, snarling style, not unlike bands we would hear from a little later like Overkill and Exodus. There's a bit of sloppiness here and the songwriting chops haven't fully formed, but songs like "Total Desaster" and "Mad Butcher" really rip, but the quality slowly declines as the album goes on. The closer, "Devil's Soldiers" is the worst, seemingly going for a pounding, almost totally non-melodic style that just doesn't suit the band. All in all, it's a fun little EP, and a nice introduction to the band.

Standouts: Mad Butcher, Total Desaster, Black Mass

Score: 7.5/10

That EP is my favourite Destruction release, and one of my favourite thrash releases ever. No band ever captured the kind of energy they had on that EP. The first three songs are insanely good.
