Default Thrash Metal Revival

Since the early to mid-00's, there has been a burst of activity in the thrash metal scene. Bands like Gama Bomb, Evile, and Toxic Holocaust have been bringing the genre back to Earth.

My favorite revival bands are Evile, Municipal Waste, and Warbringer.

I haven't really been able to get into much modern thrash. Theres just something about a cleaner sounding production that doesn't agree with me much.

I did however really get into Warbringers War Without End at one point, but then wen't off that too. I may give it another go sometime.

I haven't been particularly impressed by what Evile I have listened to, I was on the fence with Municipal Waste and I have some Toxic Holocaust but I can't even remember what it sounds like to be honest.

Daysend are another great band to check out... Listen to anything on their "Severance" album before picking up "The Warning". They have a new one out but I am yet to pick it up.

Evile's first was a quality pure thrash album I thought, but it was pure thrash with no compromise which isnt always everyone's cup of tea. Their second album was a bit more mature, they were better in their songwriting and didnt rely on pure speed in every song.

Municipal Waste you need to be in the right headspace for, they are very much a party band to me. Have some friends round for a barbecue and some beers, and throw on MW and it just works.

Toxic Holocaust are probably my favourite of the modern thrash bands mentioned in all honesty. Joel Grind has a great vocal, its alot closer to a death grunt than most thrash bands use and I much prefer that over the more typical higher pitched vocals used in thrash.

I'll listen to new thrash ever now and then. Warbringer, Mantic Ritual, Sanctity, and Bonded By Blood are some bands I listen to once in a while.

I haven't heard a huge amount of new Thrash and the scene burned itself out with endless copy cat bands without a revival. Fueled By Fire are OK though.

Yeah I will admit, alot of new thrash bands do sound alike. Hell, you get more variety in the nu metal scene than the new thrash scene.

Show me something good if your thesis is valid.
I don't believe you.
