    Its not exactly Thrash but it does have the same kind of energy. At least it does to me. Try out Children of Bodom. Its fast, melodic and raw! And.... it has keyboards :)

    I will get back on you one the "Old School" thrash bands.

    Coroner definitely are/were one of the best thrash metal bands around, yet I´d say their first three albums "R.I.P.", "Punishment For Decadence" and "No More Color" are much more thrash metal than "Mental Vortex"!
    A very good album, but to call it thrash metal is quite misleading IMO. As for thrash metal, their debut "Suffering Hour" is definitely the best choice. Songs like "Present Tense", "R.O.T." and "Twisted Cross" are thrash metal par excellence.

    Some further recommendations:
    Mekong Delta - "Mekong Delta", "The Music Of Erich Zann", "Dances Of Death"
    Voivod - "Killing Technology"
    Détente - "Recognize No Authority"
    Testament - "The Legacy", "Live At Eindhoven"
    Forbidden - "Forbidden Evil", "Raw Evil - Live At The Dynamo"
    Znowhite - "Act Of God"
    Hexenhaus - "A Tribute To Insanity"
    Original Sin - "Sin Will Find You Out"

    And if you want to try something more technical/complex (not exactly "classical" thrash):
    Sieges Even - "Life Cycle"
    Watchtower - "Control And Resistance"
    Toxik - "Think This"

    Ok, either I'm blind or did none of you posted Celtic Frost?

    Dunno points of view, I can question those CF albums as a true thrash the same way Burkhard questioned my posts of Anacrusis and Coroner.

    I guess a lot of thrash is in the ear of the beholder, same way than the border between speed/thrash is.

    Oh and I believe I missed Anthrax - 'State of Euphoria' from my list.

    Don't remind me :yell:

    I agree that stick with whatever you learned first works. I'm still getting crazy with so much revisionism.

    I used to call Metal Church thrash, but everybody today call it power metal.

    First time I heard S.O.D a friend told me that was speed metal, today is suppose to be old hardcore.

    The sticker in my "Keeper of The Seven Keys -pt.2" LP called Helloween
    progressive metal.

    So Celtic Frost is indeed more thrash than anything, but also IMO is one of the forerunners of real black along with Bathory and Venom.

    And with all the cores and mutations is getting worse. Hey I have seen Black Sabbath labeled as doom metal :Smug:

    I dig older Testament. "Practic What You Preach" is pretty good.
    Powermad "Absolute Power" Speed/thrash metal with a high range vocalist
    Wrathchild America - "Climbing The Walls" Anthemic thrash cool riffing
    Flotsum and Jetsum - "Doomsday for the Deceiver"
    Coroner - "Mental Vortex" Awesome 3 man outfit
    Forbidden - "Twist Into Form" killer fairly technical threash
    Metal Church - "Blessing in Disguise" power metal band, but their heaviest release. Close enough to call thrash and is a true masterpiece with no weak songs.
