Big Four Thrash Metal Bands Playlist

Out of the primordial Thrash Metal cuppa soup emerged Four Thrash Metal super groups.

Over the very finest butler poured Port,  Academics spend many an hour in the ivory clad dining halls of their Oxford and Cambridge colleges debating that key musical question. Who Invented Thrash Metal?   Likewise we in the Find My Band Dungeon Bar have also pondered the very same query, although admittedly over cheap corner shop purchased White Cider. (the sort that is manufactured by companies such as ICI and Syngenta and not actually fermented from Apples).

The thing is that out of the primordial Thrash Metal cuppa soup emerged Four Thrash Metal super groups.  The Big Four Thrash Metal Bands. Anthrax, Metallica, Slayer and  Megadeth. Each one who made an essential contribution to the genre.  Kill ‘Em All was more than likely the first trash album released, Peace Sells the first album on a major label and a classic album that defines the genre. Slayers Reign in Blood is still probably the greatest thrash album of all time, and Anthrax leaders of the East Coast scene, commercially successful and a link between Metal and Hardcore.

In this Big Four Thrash Metal playlist of head banging, vertebrae shattering, eardrum rupturing, Metal we therefore pay tribute to the big 4. If you own them pay for them and download them. Enjoy
