    Fucking glorious year.

    1. Sodom - Persecution Mania
    2. Death - Scream Bloody Gore
    3. Sepultura - Schizophrenia
    4. Necrophagia - Season of the Dead

    Tons of honorable mention stuff. Necrophagia may be so high because I'm feeling sentimental over Killjoy's death.

    Actually fuck no. I hate that I have to exclude so many albums from the top 10. At least with other years of the 80s there are usually a few obviously-best albums and then a light slope from there, but even Savatage I'm rethinking and will need to hear again to see if it still deserves the top spot. Will edit and expand for maximum autism later.

    EDIT: Put up all my RYM stuff down to 3 stars. The name Emetic Leprosy doesn't even ring a bell so that one I have to revisit.

    Voivod, Holy Terror, Sacrifice, Holy Moses, Toxik, Nasty Savage, Vendetta, Artillery, etc. all released better albums this year when it comes to thrash. It's not that controversial to leave Heathen out.
