**** yeah, Demolition Hammer! I wasn't the biggest fan of their vocalist at first, but when you acquire the taste for tasteless thrash vocals they're tops.

27. Exhorder - The Law - 1992




People retroactively call this groove metal, but this is really just a brutal thrash album. It does have some serious grooves though, with killer riffs to make them hit like a ton of bricks. One of the most extreme thrash albums you'll ever hear. What most groove metal bands get wrong is a lack of energy, but Exhorder's mastery of thrash dynamics keeps this from ever getting stale. And just check that bitchin' Black Sabbath cover.


Spoiler for Exhorder > Pantera:

I keep asking myself if I should be adding well-known classics as opposed to more obscure gems that deserve more recognition. Any 1001 metal albums list should include Screaming for Vengeance, but I also don't want this list to be redundant. Everybody and their mother who would come to this site has probably already heard Screaming for Vengeance after all.

We have room for 1001 albums, plenty of time to throw Screaming for Vengeance in there. This one-two punch of Epidemic of Violence and The Law right next to each other has gotten me very hopeful for this thread, though, and maybe a little moist. I used to listen to these two albums in sequence all of the time, they compliment each other so well. Back when I had The Law on regular rotation my buddies always thought I was playing some obscure Pantera demo or some Phil Anselmo side project.

Wanna do Devastation's Idolatry? Or should I? Might as well get the brutal thrash education in an easily digestible chunk.

28. Epidemic - Decameron (1992)



One of the fastest and most brutal thrash albums this side of Spectrum of Death and Pleasure to Kill. Violent devastation nonstop throughout, one of those bands like Possessed or Ripping Corpse where you're not really sure to call them death or thrash metal, but be assured, even with the outrageous vocals, this is nothing but grinding thrash madness.

29. Gorement - The Ending Quest (1994)



Gorement were a Swedish death metal band that didn't last very long, but they had the decency to release one of the greatest metal albums of all time with this one. They played the Swedish style with a more brutal edge. This album is weird (not musically, it's pretty much straight up death metal) because of it's eerie and gothic overtones, Gothic in a literal sense. There's elements of doom, technicality, melody, and other stuff, and it's done so perfectly that it's almost hard to believe. You may not be floored if you're a casual metal listener, but this is a 10/10 album that everyone needs to hear.

@ Epidemic - Decameron

Oh, not bad. The name sounds familiar, but I can't be sure. Pretty good stuff. The vocalist kind of reminds me of Max Cavalera from Morbid Visions.

Deal. Someone's gotta put up some Protector too. Gotta get this out first though...

30. Morbid Saint - Spectrum of Death - (1990)




Being part of the Florida death metal scene of the late 80s/early 90s, this thrash band is closer to death metal than many of their brutal thrash brothers, but certainly not quite so much as their friends in Death and Obituary. These dudes are intense, heavy, and abrasive, but they know how to catch a listener's ear as well. There's a reason this band is pretty much synonymous with death thrash. That vocalist is just killer too.
