    This list isn't anywhere near as kvlt as the OSDM list. For shame UM, thought we was more underground.

    Death metal is for plebs. Only the truest and most dedicated fans of kvlt explore tenth-tier thrash bands.

    EDIT: And actually, I disagree anyways. In the grand scheme of each respective genre, Suffocation, Incantation, etc are roughly about Kreator/Sodom-tier. Holy Terror is more obscure than Demigod too, although maybe roughly on par with The Chasm in terms of UM-fetishization.

    Oh my god, why don't people follow directions?

    Do you people not read good? Why are you formatting differently than I asked?

    It needs to be formatted like this:

    It was 3 and 3. I changed HBB's post so it was formatted correctly since his screwed up my spreadsheet in the original format he had.

    Decent top 20, but it sucks that we are still stuck in the 80's here. There are so many quality thrash bands from the 90's alone. At least Black Future made it in. Just because an album came out first doesn't make it the best.

    1) Vektor - Black Future
    2) Megadeth - Rust in Peace
    3) Metallica - Master of Puppets
    4) Metallica - Ride the Lightning
    5) Metallica - Kill Em All
    6) Slayer - Reign in Blood
    7) Dark Angel - Darkness Descends
    8) Coroner - No More Color
    9) Testament - The New Order
    10) Kreator - Pleasure to Kill
    11) Exodus - Bonded By Blood
    12) Holy Terror - Mind Wars
    13) Testament - The Legacy
    14) Sepultura - Beneath the Remains
    15) Vio-lence - Eternal Nightmare
    16) Artillery - By Inheritance
    17) Sodom - Persecution Mania
    18) Morbid Saint - Spectrum of Death
    19) Slayer - Show No Mercy
    20) Slayer - Hell Awaits

    Yes. Lighten up, ofc I know it was a typo... :)

    Edit: reason to it was that I also thought that the rule were that we were only allowed to edit two times (which would have made use it two times) but it was that we were allowed to change the orders twice so it was a misunderstanding from my part... ;)

    That would be funny if you used up all your edits and it was stuck as Slayer - Ride the Lightning :)

    In the scheme of OSDM, I'd say the Teutonic trio is about on par the the -tion NYDM trio. That makes Florida equivalent to America, Death can be Metallica, Morbid Angel as Slayer, etc. I'm not talking about personal preference or global popularity.

    Nah, there's dozens of tech-thrash albums better than Black Future. It's still a very good album, but some of the older songs (esp ones like Asteroid) are pretty generic. There are definitely quality new thrash albums out there, but none of them have the originality or songwriting skills of the best of the 80s/early 90s.

    You don't have to format it that way. I'm not that much of a jerk. It just makes it WAY easier if formatting is uniform throughout. I use Excel and 'Text to Columns' is very finicky.

    If someone puts the numbers in brackets, I have to do text to columns roughly 4-5 times to get everything the way I want it. If it's formatted my preferred way, I end up doing it twice.

    If you were the one doing it, you'd realize what a pain it can be sometimes.

    :lol: Yea fucking right.

    Black Future's "originality" and songwriting skills are being questioned? :lol:

    That album can pound for pound stand up to some of the best thrash albums of the 80's and early 90's.

    Aspid - Extravasation
    Believer - Sanity Obscure, Dimensions
    Coroner - No More Color, Mental Vortex
    DBC - Universe
    Deathrow - Deception Ignored
    Destruction - Release from Agony, Cracked Brain
    Obliveon - first two
    Voivod - Killing Technology
    Watchtower - both

    That's 14 albums playing a roughly similar form of tech-thrash to Vektor easily on par with or superior to Black Future. I could hit 30 easily if I included tech-thrash bands playing a different style, like Anacrusis, Depressive Age, Despair, Invocator, Mekong Delta, Realm, etc. Many of the aforementioned explored more unusual melodies and had a more experimental approach to thrash than Vektor has ever shown. Like I said, I like Black Future on the whole quite a bit, but the riffing is still chuggier and more stock than the peak of tech/prog thrash. Honestly, I think my favorite thing about Vektor is the vocalist.

    I didn't say they're the most technical or experimental .... or that they fuckin originated tech-thrash.

    While BF and OI are both somewhat similar to the albums you mentioned, most of those have more in common with each other than Vektor. They clearly have their own sound.

    And both of their albums are better than over half the stuff you have listed there(as awesome as most of it is), so yea they definitely deserve a spot on this list.

    HB: I honestly like Black Future better than all of those, and I've listened to them all. Some are close though:

    Aspid
    Believer
    Coroner
    Deathrow
    Obliveon

    All of which were also on my top 30 list.

    My comment wasn't just about tech thrash though. I said there were lots of quality thrash bands after the 80's which were just as good if not better than 80's thrash bands. Antidote - The Truth being one such album. You can also throw Havok - Time Is Up in there, Fueled by Fire, Hexen, Exmortus etc, all the newer stuff on my list in the original thread.
