    Exodus could have (and maybe should have) ceased to exist after BBB, but there is no denying that,that particular albums kicks tremendous amounts of ass.

    Exodus shouldn't even be talked about, they're pretty bad.

    They definitely should not have ceasedto exist. Pleasures of the Flesh, Fabulous Disaster, and Tempo of the Damned are all great albums.

    Kreator or Sepultura is the fourth band of the four greats imo.

    Anyone who doesn't enjoy Bonded by Blood should stop listening to thrash.

    I like Belladonna-Anthrax quite a bit. They are a little uneven but man when they are good they are really good. I love Among the Living.

    I can't get into any of the Anthrax-albums. And yeah, that particular Kafir-song came onto my mind right after posting. One memorable song, okey.

    Death Angel was around and could arguably have released The Ultra-Violence a year earlier with more exposure, the same for Coroner, Destruction, Artillery, etc. These bands formed in 82 (excluding Coroner), but it's not like they all were getting Exodus/Metallica demos/albums and then writing material.

    But Exodus (along with Metallica and Slayer) had the demos and/or live recordings to prove their early significance to thrash. Coroner's first release was a Celtic Frost-y demo in 1986, Destruction doesn't have anything earlier than 1984, and while Death Angel did release a demo in 1983, just compare it with what Exodus was doing at the same time:

    And if anyone was coming across Metallica/Exodus bootlegs in the early 80's, it was the many Bay Area bands that spawned immediately after. Admittedly Venom is the most important of all which is what can be heard in the early recordings of bands like Sodom, but Metallica, Exodus, and Slayer fully embraced and developed thrash into its definitive form. No others really come close.

    Also when you get the guys from Slayer saying that what they aimed for was to play a show a intense as an Exodus show, that's saying something about Exodus.

    Fine.

    If we consider the big four are all American bands, and probably should always be, Exodus deserve to be the fourth member of the club. BBB is awesome, Fabulous Disaster kicks ass, Tempo of the Damned and Atrocity Exhibition A are pretty good.

    Also, Gary Holt is a Thrash monster, his riffs are insane.

    Yeah, they suck balls.

    Unas is a ripoff of Candlemass- Well of Souls.

    I hope that this isn't controversial.

    Kafir !!

    If I knew how to post videos, I would. Found a good one at youtube. :confused:

    Anyway, when they played this song down here the ground shook, damn venue nearly collapsed. It's quite memorable, and a great song.

    Early Exodus is good shit (up through FD) and Belladonna era Anthrax likewise.

    For fuck's sake, the big four were/are the big four because they were the most popular thrash bands at the time. All this moaning about who should have been included is pointless and stupid because it will never change the fact that those four bands were the most popular bands in thrash at the time. Anthrax were huge at the time and rode the wave with a steady stream of decent albums. Exodus were around at the right time but weren't as popular for whatever reason. All the other bands mentioned either came later or were European and/or were more extreme.

    So please SHUT THE FUCK UP AND GET OVER IT. Anthrax are and will always be part of the big four.

    I always thought it was about the most influential/first thrash bands.
