I did pioneering thrash albums, hows about the best thrash debut album of all time, I tried to do my homework, and be as accurate as possible, so I didnt leave your favorite thrash debut album out, as there are so many awesome debuts, I of course took Venom, but it was a close second with the little known, little heard masterpiece, Oliver Magnum.

I guess, based on pure enjoyment, I'd have to go for Testament. Exodus would be close, but the horrendous production always puts me off playing it....

A ton of excellent choices on this one. I went with Vio-lence "Eternal Nightmare". Not only my favorite debut but my favorite thrash album period.

ok, so then i'll go with Queen's self titled debut from 73; it's not thrash metal all the way :lol: ,but there are already hints of what was to come on their 3rd album Sheer Heart Attack from 74(that one contains the speed thrash monster Stone Cold Crazy).

 

more seriously, i voted for Death Angel's debut; but it really depends on my state of mind of the moment, and tomorrow it could be Bonded by Blood or Feel the Fire or Eternal Nightmare or Infernal overkill or the Legacy or Doomsday for the Deceiver or Metal Church or Forbidden Evil or Power and Pain or War and Pain or Killing is my Business or Show no Mercy or Fistfull of Metal(and so on).

 

Some really great debuts are missing, like Sabatt's History of a Time to Come, Assassin's Upcoming terror, Holy Terror's Terror and Submission, Deathrow's Riders of Doom, Agent Steel's Skeptics Apocalypse, Heathen's Breaking the Silence, Coroner's RIP, Possessed's 7 Churches, Nasty Savage's self titled.

Sabatt's 1st album was excellent. I remember seeing them at the Astoria when it nearly ended in a full scale riot with the Astoria security nazis.

Easy choice for me, Metal Church - ST. Although to my mind it's more akin to Speed Metal than Thrash.

 

Just trawling through the polls and stumbled across this one. Went with Metal Church, by far my favourite of these albums, just amazing. Not thrash though, I'd probably just call it 'Heavy Metal'; like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden it doesn't fit any of the sub-genres, so it's just HM. Just my tuppence worth.

I'm not sure how I missed this poll but somehow I did.

 

My vote went to Kill Em All because on one hand it's fucking awesome and on the other if it wasn't for this album the others on that list wouldn't of ever happened IMO. Testament The Legacy is up there for me as well as is the Megadeth and Metal Church. The Venom, I'm not sure if I'd consider them thrash and I don't consider Iced Earth thrash either but that's just my opinion.

Without Venom their would be almost nobody on this list, especially for Metallica and Slayer, whom they personally asked to open for them on tour, leading to the discovery of both bands, I dont know what list youd put Venom on? isnt Welcome To Hell thrash? and LV Kix, I never really thought of Climbing The Walls as a thrash album, as it never really fit that profile as it always seemed to be just a suped up Heavy Metal album, Hells Gates is really the only song on it(that I can think of)that id even consider to be a thrash song, ITS A FUCKING BRUTAL AND KICK ASS ALBUM AND ONE OF MY FAVS! it suffered from terrible production, and never got the recogniztion it deserved, I dont think that group of guys ever put out something I didnt like, Souls At Zero was fucking wicked as well!

I thought I'd get hell from you for that comment. :lol:

I don't know where I'd place Venom as I know some consider them the creator of the black metal and thrash genre's but thrash was more of an American scene in the beginning and that started with Metallica IMO. Sure Venom was a huge influence on them and Slayer for sure but Kiss was an influence on Motley, Poison and Warrant but you can't consider Kiss a Hair Metal band. Sure they went through that phase but that's not what they were to start with. So if we're talking about "Thrash" that starts with Metallica period but that's just my opinion.

Motorhead and Iggy Pop were Venoms biggest influences!

I agree that Wrathchild (America) isn't 100% thrash. There were a few on the original poll list I personally didn't consider thrash. That is why I picked Wrathchild.. I believed them to be as "thrash" as some of the other choices.

    • New song 'Irreversible'. From Frontiers: 'Irreversible' is a new single from Norway's Big City. The track is from the recording sessions for their most recent studio album, "Testify X", which is out now. Fans of bands such as Firewind, Queensryche, Magnus Karlsson's Free Fall, Europe, Fair Warning, and the like should look forward to being introduced to this exciting band.    
    • Yeah mate, that's definitely them through and through. Maybe slightly "ballsier" in recent years, but if you dig that you'll dig their gear. 
    • I was meant to see Crazy Lixx too, and it turned into a massive fuck-around. They didn't end up coming to Australia after a massive failed festival event. I think they were still headed here, but it was right at the start of covid and I think that may have been a factor in them cancelling too. Pretty devastating at the time, but thankfully Reckless Love had more testicular fortitude and that was one of, if not my favourite (and as fate would have it, last) concert outing so far. 
    • Just heard that 'We unite' song. Not into it, but hoping there's better to come as I like the vocals (of course) and it's a good ballsy sound. Just a terrible chorus. 
    • I've just revisited the original and as worthy as the above cover is, the original is perfection.     
    • HOLY FUCKING FUCK OF A FUCK!!! One of my favourite songs ever! How did I not know of this KILLER cover!?  I'm not familiar with the album either, I'll have to check it out.    
    • Yeah I'm not completely sold on Brand either. He is very intelligent, switched on and an excellent speaker, but I don't connect as much with him as I do others. Watch him every now and then but not subscribed as I'm not overly interested in a lot of his videos. 
    • Russell Brand goes on a bit too much about spirituality most of the time for me, and he is very slow to get to the point, compared to someone like, say the awesome Jordan Peterson. I remember when I first saw the Sarah Silverman was dong video blogs, because I thought she was pretty great and funny. And then I saw some, and now I hate her. I hate pretty much everything she says, and I even find it hard watching her movies lol
    • Randy Piper's Animal - Judgement Day. Killer track unfortunately not on youtube.  The start of the chorus says it all.   "I'm here to tell you I'm watching you, I'm watching everything you do, GOD knows, 'cause he asked me to".   Job gets it.
    • haha, just what this place has been missing. A religious thread. I don't believe in any higher power, just like I don't believe in ghosts or aliens. Show me one and I will believe, until then.... As far as mainstream religions go, they are all equally silly to me. Defining a 'god' or 'gods' and creating images on them, and worshipping them? Really? Just because you don't know? Christianity is ridiculed in Australia, because like it or not we are a Christian society. Want proof? attend parliament, and they say the lord's prayer before every sitting. Having travelled extensively around the world, I will say that Catholicism is the worst of them all. Money hungry, money grabbing religion that it. Asian religions and much more realistic. Anyway here's the thing. I DON'T KNOW I don't know how we got here. I know how we evolved. But I don't know where our consciousness came from, and I don't know where it goes, if anywhere. And I don't care, because I can't change it anyway. For me life is more about being a good person, doing right by others and living a happy life. I've said for years, the secret to life is in two parts. Stay healthy and he happy. That's it. Worship whomever you like. Doesn't affect me. You guys create some great temples and churches and I enjoy visiting them. Interestingly, even 10 or 15 years ago, not many dared to come out and admit they had no faith. These days, this is common, but rare for people to come out and say they are Christian, or whatever. Jesus was real. His life is fairly well documented. Was he the son of a god? lol If anything he was a magician of sorts. Probably a decent bloke though. Scariest thing I've seen recently was the NY mayor talking about covid and how god has chosen it and people should get immunised to serve god or whatever. Damn, I would HATE to live in a bible belt of the US. Hell, people in my country don't ever really get a flag out except for one day a year that everyone hates because it's now all about invasion etc. I've been through the US and was amazed at the amount of flags on front lawns, letterboxes, and everywhen. You guys care about your country far more than us
