Although I've got most of Megadeth's discography, I just don't enjoy their stuff. Countdown To Extinction was a great album though.
Slayer destroys Metallica, but Megadeth owns all.

Alright.

Slayer and Metallica are both pretty important in my opinion. Both, Slayer and Metallica, were early on the Thrash Metal scene. Both bands have produced very good albums, both bands have produced mediocre albums, and both bands have produced bad albums. Those things being said I grow tired of both bands quickly nowadays.

Overall though, I think Slayer is the better of the two. I like the more aggressive music they make.

In terms of skill, both bands lack a 'good' vocalist, imo. Metallica gets bass between having had Cliff and Rob (I didn't think Jason was a great vocalist, but there is really no way to know because the bass on AJ4A was hard to hear?). Drums obviously Slayer with Dave. In terms of guitar, eh both bands lack so not really going to judge here.

To put it in a correct perspective of the big 4 thrash bands of the day:

Slayer>Megadeth>Metallica>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Anthrax

Peace Sells, So Far So Good, Rust in Peace and Countdown are all pretty solid imo.

The rest isn't very good... eh.

But I really can't decide on this one... Gonna go with Slayer though. Reign in Blood is like the holy grail of Thrash. imo.

As far as pure thrash albums go, its the undisputed king. Exodus`s "Bonded in Blood" runs a close second though.

I'll admit I don't know much about either band (relative to you guys, at least), but I do really like what Metallica I've heard.
