Thrash Metal Top 60


Which metalhead hasn’t grown up with Thrash? Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth to name the big four.
I am particularly happy with 1986. Metallica came up with the album Master of Puppets. Flotsam and Jetsam with their debut album Doomsday for the Deceiver, Megadeth with Peace Sells … But who is Buying, Metal Church with The Dark, Nuclear Assault with Game Over, Slayer with Reign in Blood and Dark Angel with Darkness Descends. Not a bad year, right?

But there are so many releases in the 80s that can be classified as classic. Exodus with Bonded by Blood, Kreator with Pleasure to Kill, Testament with The Legacy, Anthrax with Spreading the Disease. And so on.

And I haven’t mentioned the “gems” yet. Bands that have made a fantastic album, but were never fully picked up by the crowd. Razor with Shotgun Justice, Demolition Hammer with Epidemic of Violence, Sacrifice with Soldiers of Misfortune, Watchtower with Control and Resistance, Artillery with By Inheritance, Torture with Storm Alert, Power Trap with Disciples of Power, Anacrusis with Manic Impressions or Morbid Saint with Spectrum of Death to name a few.

And of course the new dudes on the block, Power Trip, Vektor, Hellbringer, Evil Invaders, Warbringer, Droid, Hellripper, Condor, and a lot more new bands that draw inspiration from the rich history of Thrash Metal.

130dB is a Dutch radio Show, so don’t forget all the Thrash Metal related bands from the Netherlands. The debut album from Pestilence and Mystrez, Vulture, Mysto Dysto/Mandator, Messina, Sacrosanct, Dead Head, Distillator, Jagannath, Bifrost. Way to many to mention them all.

It is always difficult to compile a list from so many fantastic albums. Fortunately a lot of Metalheads managed to capture their best tracks in a Top 10. We have received over 1,000 lists. A 1.052 to be precise. And of all these lists we have compiled a Top 60. What are the best Thrash Metal tracks ever? Listen back to the broadcast and see the list of the ultimate Thrash Metal tracks ever made!

It changes every day, but okay, here’s my Top 10. And probably I forgot a song ?.

Morbid Saint – Lock Up Your Children
Metal Church – Metal Church
Demolition Hammer – Human Dissection
