EDIT: So...what other bands are good. So far I've heard of Hatchet, Bonded by Blood, Fueled by Fire, Warbringer, Torture Squad, Legion of the Damned, Evile. I'm looking for Legion of the Damned/Torture Squad/Warbringer-alikes mostly.

Long overdue recommendation of Demolition Hammer.

Of course I am, I listen to At The Gates and secretly jack-off to Slipknot while claiming that Thrash is my favorite genre when all I know is St. Anger era Metallica ;)

It's not that I DON'T like songs about killing posers, it's just that the whole theme becomes really-really tired after 5 songs in one fucking album.


Well you said all Fueled by Fire sing about is killing posers, actually on the album Spread the Fire there are only 2 songs where they sing of slaying posers, Thrash Is Back and Massive Execution.

Exactly. This is everybody's complaint about the album. Jesus, get some new ears.

Betrayal and Metal Forever have such awesome riffing in them. SWEET JESUS OF NAZARETH.

Fueled by Fire is all about crushing posers really. The album cover (not the original self-released one)even has a thrasher choking an emo kid with a chain. There was a problem with Bonded by Blood which was really just a misunderstanding but they started accusing them of being posers and such. Really though Merciless Death were even worse about it with the poser thing. Doesn't matter to me though as the music is good. I don't care whether a band is trying to fulfill every cliche there is as long as the music is good.

If anyone is looking for new thrash bands then check these links.

So FbF accused of BbB of being posers? Why? Also could explain the Merciless Death poser thing? Was it related to FbF accusing BbB or no? Can you put the situation in context? I'll save what I'm going to say for when I have a context of the situation.

Is that download page sanctioned by the band? It is against the board-rules to post unsacntioned download links, so if not, you might want to get rid of that.

Revenant is a brutal thrash band with some twisted riffs... this is the closest I can think of to "atmospheric thrash." It has a quite "ancient" feeling to it.

And I acutally find Morbid Saint to be one of the more atmospheric thrash bands. The riffs are absolutely headbangable and things are so fast, but they manage to pull off really "morbid" sounding riffs; it's not overt, but you can really feel that. Lock Up Your Children's main riff has that atmosphere, and Assassin is fraught with evil riffage, etc. And of course, the short instrumental interlude Spectrum of Death...

I'd like some recomandations,

I've grown a bit tired of endless speed and repetetive machine gun riffage.

Lately i've been giving Coma of Souls and South of Heaven lots of plays.
Does anybody know some quality bands, new or old, that mix up the pace more and write more open and creative riffs, whilst still retaining the energy of thrash?

You could check out Overkill's Horrorscope.

Aspid from Russia is a tech thrash band with very complex and long riffs, without losing the agression - they have harsh vocals, buzzsaw guitar tone, speed and all that.

Try Seventh Angel
It may not be evil, but it's certainly dark and doomy and *very* atmospheric.

Try some of the more technical bands. (Not all of these are technical just mix up the pace a lot)
Artillery - By Inheritance
Target - Mission Executed
Megadeth - Rust in Peace
Metallica - Ride the Lightning
Cyclone Temple - I Hate Therefore I am
Vendetta - Brain Damage

Dude, but Merciless Death makes really shitty music. They don't have a lot of room to talk. Bonded By Blood is way more fresh.

It's mainly the bay area scene that bicker I think. They try to hard to get the image down and sound oldschool and exclude bands that don't do that. Merciless Death don't do it for me and just sound dull. I like Fueled by Fire though. Bonded by Blood, sounds to pop like for me. The vocals annoy me. The mp3s I have heard from the full length sound much better. It is better focused, more crunch and the vocals are somewhat better.

Actually, the vocals for me are what attracted me to Bonded By Blood. They're pretty unlike anything I've heard.

Bonded by Blood's riffing is very unattractive to me. The riffs somehow have that cheesy feel and all those harmonics they throw in there kill me a little.

Agreed. Also you might like Overkill's sideproject Speed/Kill\Hate. The production is neater, but it's pretty all over the place. Vocals sound a little metalcore, but other than that they might be up your alley.


I've got those Sep albums already and I love em. I'll definitely check out Speed Kill Hate.

What about "Metal Forever" or whatever that's called? I thought that was pretty anti-poser. But, like I said, I don't really have a problem with poser killing songs (I like "Poserslaughter"). Actually...now that I read the lyrics and listened to the songs again, they mostly sing about the glories of thrash and namedrop bands left and right :lol: no problem there amirite?

I mean why does it matter? I swear to god, when it comes to crushing posers, metalheads turn into wimpy fucking babies. It's treated like some sort of taboo subject.

Grow a pair for god's sake, you have ODIN and SATAN on your side!

On another note, listening to Flots & Jets 'No Place For Disgrace' right now! :metal:

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'd absolutely love for this one to get a remaster like Doomsday did with the 20th Anniversary edition.

I don't really have a problem with any kind of thrash lyrics (except Christian lyrics... but that's a totally different matter); I can bang my head to it even if the quality of the lyrics is something of a thrid-grader's poem, as far as the music is good.

But there are certain subejects I like more than others, and poser-killing, or anything directly referring to the "metalness" in genral, isn't really the one I prefer. I'm not sure if I can exactly describe why... it's kind of what Tolkien argued in his essay on fairy tales. He says that fairy tales should not be connected with the world we live in (such as the main character being a normal boy in this Earth and one day discovering some magic powers a la Harry Potter). That's one of the reasons I like Tolkien's works; they're not connected to this world in a direct way. Maybe this wasn't much of an analogy, but I hope you get what I'm trying to say here.

That applies to my metal as well. I prefer the lyrical matter to be detached from the music I am listening to; I want it to create a wholly different surrounding that takes me to another dimension, rather than talk about the world of metal itself. If poser-killing lyrics are to be done, I want them written in a more subtle way, like Kreator's Flag of Hate.

As I said earlier, I don't really mind those lyrics, be it "poser-killing" or "metal." I'm just saying that it's not the most ideal lyrical matter I would pursue.

Have any bands ever combined thrash and folk metal? I think that would be an epic combination. There are a few bands on the Archives listed as playing both, though from what I've listened to, none of it really holds true..

Yeah but if it's a whole two songs on an album, are you really going to mark that against it? But anyway, it seems for thrash today it's either political, anti-religious, posers or war.

Maybe -maybe- early Skyclad, might be worth checking out. I know their earlier stuff is a bit thrashy, though probably not as folk influenced.

I'm actually more interested to see some symphonic thrash metal. Any recs?

I've proposed the idea many times and asked for suggestions, but there doesn't seem to truly be any. Some people say one of Sigh's albums fits, but I'm not sure which one.

One time when I asked about it, one of the mods (I think FSM) said the closest would be Science Fiction, but their album is impossible to find. :(

I mean why does it matter? I swear to god, when it comes to crushing posers, metalheads turn into wimpy fucking babies. It's treated like some sort of taboo subject.

Grow a pair for god's sake, you have ODIN and SATAN on your side!


When the hell did ODIN come into the equation? But seriously, we DON'T need a song about killing posers...we can just do it in real life :D Besides, it's not about lyrical themes! I just find Fueled by Fire to be fucking repetitive when it comes to lyrics to the point of them being considered a joke band by me!

There! CAN WE FUCKING MOVE ON!?

On a sidenote: Can someone recommend me some brutal thrash? I already know the German bands, D.F.A., Morbid Saint, Brazilian bands, etc. Anymore good brutal thrash bands?
