    One of my favorite old-school metal songs is "Unstoppable Force" by Agent Steel, and for the longest time, I thought they were thrash metal because I discovered them via a YouTube video about thrash metal. However, now I'm seeing quite a few sources that label them as speed metal, so now I'm wondering: would you consider Agent Steel to be speed metal or thrash metal?

    Rate Your Music is a pretty good resource for this. You can click each album and see what genres people have voted it as. Some of their later albums are being called thrash there, but not the first two.

    The line between speed metal and thrash can be pretty thin sometimes.

    So it goes to the ear of the beholder IMO.
