Thrash Metal Masterpieces

A Listmania! list by C. Lee (Manchester UK)
(REAL NAME)   
 
Beneath the Remains
1.  Beneath the Remains by Sepultura
The list author says:
  "Not as well known as Chaos AD or Roots but certainly the Brazilian's breakthrough album.  In my opinion their heaviest and most dynamic album, bursting with galloping riffs and manacing vocals."
£15.79   Used & New from: £3.48
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (20 customer reviews)

Dreamweaver
2.  Dreamweaver by Sabbat
The list author says:
  "Without a shadow of a doubt the greatest British thrash metal album!  This wonderful concept album was superbly crafted, atmospheric and really unleashed the full lyrical brilliance of Martin Walkyier"
Used & New from: £14.99
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Bonded By Blood
3.  Bonded By Blood by Exodus
The list author says:
  "The least known of the Bay Area thrash titans, dwarfed by Metallica and Megadeth.  This album has real power and songcraft."
£8.66   Used & New from: £7.99
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (15 customer reviews)

Master Of Puppets
4.  Master Of Puppets by Metallica
The list author says:
  "THE definitive thrash album, proving that the genre wasn't simply blood and thunder (plenty of that with Battery) by showcasing a more eclectic side (Orion, etc)."
£27.03   Used & New from: £4.96
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (182 customer reviews)

The Legacy
5.  The Legacy by Testament
The list author says:
  "Testament never really lived up to the promise of this sophisticated and bruising early work, shame really."
£6.93   Used & New from: £3.52
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

In Search of Sanity
6.  In Search of Sanity 
The list author says:
  "I doubt you could get this for love nor money now but it was one of the only truly good British thrash albums, a worthy effort."
Used & New from: £7.48
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Reign in Blood
7.  Reign in Blood by Slayer
The list author says:
  "So heavy it shattered all preconceptions, how could human beings play this fast?  Still utterly compelling and crushingly brutal today."
Used & New from: £1.85
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (122 customer reviews)

How Will I Laugh Tomorrow When I Can't Even Smile Today
8.  How Will I Laugh Tomorrow When I Can't Even Smile Today by Suicidal Tendencies
The list author says:
  "I never can decide if they were really thrash or not but they had a really heavy and challenging groove that demands a listen, storming title track."
£7.46   Used & New from: £1.99
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Surf Nicaragua
9.  Surf Nicaragua by Sacred Reich
The list author says:
  "Probably doesn't deserve to get in here on merit, but as an eclectic choice it works and it had a great cover!"
Used & New from: £19.98

Never, Neverland (Reissue)
10.  Never, Neverland (Reissue) by Annihilator
The list author says:
  "Bizarrely overlooked for the more overwrought first album, this was more stripped down, more to the point and if you could write the riff on Stonewall you'd be smiling like a Cheshire Cat!"
£6.53   Used & New from: £4.85
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

Coma Of Souls
11.  Coma Of Souls by Kreator
The list author says:
  "Got to have a Kreator album, but which one?  I can't choose so I'll pick my personal favourite."
£21.94   Used & New from: £6.41
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Fuck You And Then Some / Feel The Fire
12.  Fuck You And Then Some / Feel The Fire by Over Kill
The list author says:
  "Deliberately offensive?  Yes.  Crass? Perhaps.  Heavy and driving with a really cool riff?  Absolutely!"
£8.13   Used & New from: £6.99
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Handle With Care
13.  Handle With Care by Nuclear Assault
The list author says:
  "Never in the top league, but tried hard and here they are with green tendencies."
£21.60
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Among The Living
14.  Among The Living by Anthrax
The list author says:
  "A really tough one this, which Anthrax?  Their earlier albums had great songs but fluff and later they produced more rounded works without the truly great tracks.  Can't argue with I Am The Law."
£5.58   Used & New from: £1.98
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (32 customer reviews)

The Best.The Rest.The Rare
15.  The Best.The Rest.The Rare by Helloween
The list author says:
  "Goes against the grain to pick a 'best of' but this has all the good stuff and none of the unfortunate dross which marred much of their output.  They really were good before Pink Bubbles Go Ape!"
£22.95   Used & New from: £3.48
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Speak English Or Die
16.  Speak English Or Die by Stormtroopers of Death (S.O.D.)
The list author says:
  "A great antidote to all the snobbery around thrash.  Proved it could be fun, even if it did little to improve the perception that it wasn't a politically correct genre!"
Out of stock
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Rust In Peace
17.  Rust In Peace by Megadeth
The list author says:
  "Nearly forgot them!  I loved this Megadeth lineup best, Marty Friedman could play and then some!  Quite incredible upping of the thrash ante with these riffs."
£6.44   Used & New from: £1.83
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (72 customer reviews)
