Hm, that's pretty specific... To my mind come:

Hey, guys. Here's one very simple question for you: I having been meaning to check Sodom's discography more thoroughly for a long time; I have listened to their 80s material mostly because of their significant influence on the Norwegian black metal wave, but my knowledge on their discography ends there. According to many, the band has always put out quality material but what are the absolutely essential Sodom albums in your opinion? Thanks in advance!

Less essential but also good:

Better Off Dead
Code Red

I would argue Better Off Dead is essential because they filter Motörhead through the German thrash aural aesthetic. So you've got a lot of good mid-paced classic heavy metal in one part of the song, and then a hard-transition to thrash and what comes out the other end is just awesome.

I'm going nuts trying to find a thrash album I downloaded and I can't remember the name of the band. It's thrash, I'm pretty sure the group is Canadian, and the cover is a black/blue color scheme with a large demonic/skeletal face in the middle. Thanks to whoever in adavnce!

I just felt like I had to inform you guys that Masquerader - Vortex Day Zero is a modern-day tech thrash masterpiece.

I rarely hear any metal album these days that I think is this good.

Here's my review, to give you a bit more detail:
"Vocals are melodic and mostly mid-range. Guitar rhythms are pretty unorthodox, and are well-arranged. Most songs are uptempo. Wah guitar solos. Musicianship is very good.

Excellent stuff here. This is a modern-day thrash classic.

Favorite tracks:
All tracks are interesting listens

This album might appeal to fans of Obliveon, Depressive Age, Voivod, and Valkyria."

Just had an opportunity to listen to that Masquerader album, definitely different from the usual Vektor clones and I can hear the Depressive Age semblance, especially in the vocals but sometimes in the songs too. Cool stuff.
