12 More Albums That Kept Thrash Alive In The 90’s!

The world had turned to grunge and nu-metal but these thrashers just kept on thrashin'!

Ritual Carnage – The Highest Law (1998)

A love letter to the glory days of thrash supremacy, Japan’s Ritual Carnage rewound the clock with their debut The Highest Law, an album that struck at the heart of the genre with its frantic pace, satanic lyrics, proto-death metal leanings and more than a cursory nod to the legendary likes of Onslaught, Nasty Savage and Exumer.

A remorseless thrash attack from the East, these quick-fire bursts of speed and aggression sprayed thrash bullets with wanton abandon, hitting each and every target with their throwback sound.

With more intensity that any of The Big 4 had mustered in years, thrash needed Ritual Carnage in 1998, it needed an album like The Highest Law and with no let up in fury and velocity this weaponised assault signalled that a thrash re-birth was in the offering!
