I've been cranking Helstar and Slayer and Pokolgep and calling it a day but if I could find something new-these-days that conforms to those old standards.... I demand to know.

what snaps my spine like Sepultura "Beneath the Remains" snaps my spine? tell me.

Better use the thrash metal help thread, but you should give Ripper's Experiments of Existence a try. Retro thrash/death with a bit of a technical edge to it.

Definitely don't. Lich King epitomizes everything wrong with retro thrash to me, all style, no substance.

Antichrist is about as good as old-school thrash gets these days for my money, especially if you're after something ripping like old Slayer, Kreator, and Sepultura.

Chemicaust is very good. Vicious thrash in the vein of Slayer and Kreator. They just got an album out, and likely going to be in the running for best thrash album of the year for me.
Youtube: show


Slaughterer is Vicious Kreator worship done really well
Youtube: show


Vulture had the best thrash album last year out of everything I have heard.
Youtube: show


Hellbringer is pretty much a Hell Awaits/Reign in Blood clone, but done very well.
Youtube: show


If you like early Bathory then check out Hellripper
Youtube: show


Sadistic Ritual is excellent Kreator worship. No full length yet, but they have some EPs, demos, and splits.

If a band copies a legendary band, I always wonder why I would not just listen to the classic instead.

Hey man, since you listed two bands who I don't consider thrash at all (Pokolgep and Helstar) I'm going to assume you're into music that THRASHES but it doesn't necessarily have to be thrash metal.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n03AEI2NiKM -- Demon Bitch, Hellfriends LP. This is where US speed metal (Savage Grace), Mercyful Fate, and epic all collide. It is my favorite album in the last however many years, and I think it stands toe-to-toe with anything from the 80s.

...Because more songs in a certain style is always, always, always better than fewer songs in that style? My mp3 player isn't gonna fill itself.

I would recommend Expander, Gotsu Totsu Kotsu and most of the thrash bands signed to Memento Mori.

The Storm Before The Calm by Dekapitator is one of my favorite thrash albums easily since the mid 90s.

Vektor is an obvious choice, I gotta go with Hexen also. Hexen's "State Of Insurgency" is a masterpiece, that album thrashes. It's also extremely melodic too, it totally blows away most new thrash acts.

Really? I couldn't get into it. I bought it after reading some positive reviews and seeing the lineup, but I ended up trading it in later that same day after it bored the hell out of me. It wasn't bad or offensive, but not a single thing stood out about it to me.

I second Chemicaust. Album of the year candidate, listened to it a couple days ago and it immediately took me to the glorious days of thrash metal. Absolutely recommended if you're looking for some well done brutal retro-thrash.
