    If you're asking which is the best out of those 3 bands, Testament is hands down.

    If you're asking which is the best '80s thrash band overall, well then the honor goes to Metallica.

    I think I made a mistake asking that way, let's try again...
    I'm asking you about the great thrash metal BANDS (Can be more than one) of the 80's...overall.....and you can choose more than one band.....here goes my list

    1-Metallica (simply forgot them in the first post =P)
    2-Coroner
    3-Testament
    4-Kreator

    It's kind of clear now? =)

    Thrash = Megadeth , I will refrain from any further comments. After that there are a number of great bands, and many none of you mentioned. Thrash is my favorite style so I kinda know a lot of the unknown bands.
    No particular order

    Annihilator
    Nuclear Assault
    Pro-Pain
    Slayer(Speed / Thrash)
    Exodus
    Vio-lence
    Forbidden (Forbidden Evil)
    Necronomicon
    Grip Inc.
    Helstar
    Hirax
    Metal Church
    Morgana Lefay(i guess its another style also)
    Overkill
    Arch Enemy
    Gothic Slam
    Torque
    Technocracy
    Necrophobic
    Sepultura(*)

    And many others go to geocities.com/thrashlist I think that has a list of every known thrash band.

    What about Exciter. I think they are the most underated thrash metal band ever. These guys kick ass. I personally think it's getting harder to define thrash 'cause the so called "thrash" bands are so varied in style. Having said that, here are a few of my fav's.

    Exciter
    Metallica
    Megadeth
    Anthrax
    Celtic Frost
    Testament
    Allegiance
    Pantera
    Voi Vod
    Overkill
    etc
    etc
