Welcome fellow metal-heads and thrashers, as we all celebrate the goodness of pure, head-banging thrash. This is the thread for all things thrash.
What is thrash, for the uninitiated? If that is the question asked, then the asker is in the wrong place! Though with AOTS motto, "Deny
Ignorance", I feel as though a good definition is needed. en.wikipedia.org...
defines Thrash Metal as such,"an
extreme subgenre of heavy metal that is characterized by its fast tempo and aggression. Thrash metal songs typically use fast, percussive and
low-register guitar riffs, overlaid with shredding-style lead work." With that being said, can we agree on that definition? In any case, let's
talk some thrash! I'll start things off with a few of my favorite, and new, thrash metal bands. Evile is great, new thrash metal band from the
United Kingdom, that really brings the old-school thrash sound with them. Warbringer is another young band, hailing from the Strip. Very fast, and
aggressive, though the vocals are a bit tough to get used to. And a quick honorable mention for Toxic Holocaust and Skeletonwitch. Now, where are
all the thrashers at?
