Sodom, Kreator, Metal Church, Megadeth, Slayer, Metallica, Anthrax, Exodus, Testament, Nuclear Assault.
Metallica, for those of you who think is lame, didnt start the thrash metal movement but they were the best thrash band to come out of the bay area, thus polularising thrash.

If you call Trivium Thrash, your head is abviously in line with your colon.
Trivium are a band that tried write Thrash, missed the point and therefore failed.
If you want a list of bands have a look at this link, and click on "Former" in the box:

Go wake up and educate yourselves Douchbags.

Bands like trivium are realy gay, their music sucks, its not even close to real thrash metal!

The creators of the genre are the best of all time:Megadeth, Metallica, Anthrax and Slayer.
And other oldschool bands are also awesome,like Testament, Exodus, Kreator, Sodom, Destruction.

But there are also real thrash metal bands from this decade that really know how to throw down old school thrash, bands like Violator, Warbringer, Evile, Bonded by Blood, Fueled by Fire.

Anyway thrash metal is the best!!!

I agree totally with Thrashmaniac. Megadeth, Metallica, Anthrax and Slayer were the birth parents of thrash. Trivium, although talented, are NOT thrash.

I love all kinds of metal,but to me I think the real thrash are, METALLICA,MEGADETH,and SLAYER! Best albums were Metallica:Master of Puppets Megadeth: Peace sells and Slayer: Reign in Blood.
80's were the best years for thrash because it was new. It faded away in the mid 90's because of that stupid shit Grunge. Now that Grunge is out it re created it shelf to this fake ass bands whojust think that they have long hair, say scary stuff, and play loud,fast guitars, think that there thrash.

first off venom were the first signs of a thrash band which is the combining of traditional metal and hardcore. motorhead were right there not long after in terms of punk crossover. D.R.I. are a true example of real thrash, but fans often let the exact definitions slide. most thrash bands are really speed metal bands. anything with melody, acoustic guitars or melidic overtones is not true thrash.
but for the most part thrash / speed metal is a pure form of heavy music. rarely ever makes the limelight.
prime examples of thrash / speed metal bands: slayer, exodus, kreator, old megadeth, dark angel, testament ... trivium no matter what the arguement is NOT a thrash band - hell communic and nevermore are more thrash than trivium and they are outside the circle as well. if you consider trivium thrash then you must also think shadowsfall and lamb of god are thrash. bands from today that are true thrash: suicidal angels, neurasthenia, oppression ... listen to these bands and then listen to trivium - BIG DIFFERENCE
Actully venom were the first signs of death and black metal

You guys missed 2 important thrash birth parents,overkill and exodus,these 2 bands were formed in 1980,1 year before the metallica,,anthrax,slayer,and 3 years before megadeth.

Thrash metal is best because of the unequalled combination of speed and technique. You'll never find that combination in any other sort of music. Well, with a few deathmetal bands as the exception ofcourse.

That said, there are a lot of thrashers outthere who either don't match the speed or don't have the skills/technique.

A great example would be 'the crowns' classic album 'hell is here'. Thrash at its finest.

If by comparision i listen to reggae i constantly feel like i'm missing notes. its just note -silence- note. If you start listening a lot to thrash you'll experience the same blank feeling when listening to other sorts of music. Somethings just missing.
