Were the big 8????

I read this somewhere online last night and it got me thinking. If we're talking strictly thrash bands I would say

5: Testament
6: Exodus
7: Death Angel
8: Kreator

Now if we're talking metal in general i would add, and amend the original list, keeping in mind you have to keep the original big 4.

1: Iron Maiden
2: Judas Priest
3: King Diamond/Mercyful Fate
4: Carcass
5: Megadeth
6: Anthrax
7: Slayer
8: Napalm Death
9: Metallica

Thoughts/opinions?

SLAYER


I don't listen to enough Thrash to care about this question any further.

Honestly, nothing any of these 4 bands did comes close to what the other 4 did.

Leave Metallica off the list. The only good albums in my opinion were before the Black Album. Obviously I am not a huge Metallica fan.

So what you're saying is a band that wrote 3 of the best metal albums ever; Ride the lightning, Puppets, Justice should be left off because you're not a huge fan?

This.

Nobody cares for modern day Metallica, but you can't discount their first 4 albums at all time greats.

Ok, now I really liked the Black album and Death Magnetic and select songs off load and reload. But I don't think songs off those albums belong on a setlist from a big four tour.
