25 Of The Most Under-Appreciated Albums In US Thrash History!

Forget The Big 4.....this is what you should be listening to!

Aftermath – Eyes Of Tomorrow (1994)

Source // Aftermath

Aftermath may have first turned heads with the thrash assault of their speed-of-light, full-throttle demo Killing The Future but it’s their only full length album to date, released in 1994, that showcased this undervalued bands full potential and proved to be a total reinvention of their sound.

Frankly, Eyes Of Tomorrow was progressive thrash incarnate and its off kilter rhythms and mind-boggling complexity jostled with infectious melody, ingenious hooks and heads-down thrashing. Creatively eccentric and filled with fluid leads, accomplished solos and dark ambience, the incredible technicality and progressive nature of Eyes Of Tomorrow remains clear for all to hear.

After the likes of Heathen, Anacrusis and Coroner had given up the ghost, it was down to Aftermath to carry progressive thrash into the mid 90’s!

    Vendetta – Brain Damage.
    Every song has great thrash beats and machine gun speedy riffs. Two guitarist and both sing.

  4. Toxik’s ‘World circus’. Great list by the way, many discoveries to check out (same remark for the german list).

  5. OMG !! GREAT LIST …but you guys have seemed to forget…Blind Illusion’s The Sane Asylum…Hands down (in my humble opinion!!) the most UNDERATED album EVER !! in any GENRE even !! If you havent heard it go online & LISTEN …a THRASH MASTERCLASS from the warped mind of MARK BIEDERMANN Les Calypool & Larry Lalonde !!

      Thank you kindly…..look out for Blind Illusion in a follow-up feature….there’s loads more under-appreciated US albums we want to shout about! \m/

  6. Sacrilege bc’s “Party With God” this is one of the all time underrated Thrash LP’s crossover that quite possibly started the blackned thrash movement.

    Uncle Slam,Pissing Razors and Wrath. Or is Pissing Razors from Mexico?

    • Chris Jennings // April 26, 2018 at 7:13 am // Reply

      Pissing Razors are from Texas I think, but always considered them to be groove metal. Sub-genres causing problems as always!! haha

      Great shout when it comes to Uncle Slam and particularly Wrath….a follow-up feature is in the works and these could both be included 🙂 \m/

  10. demolition hammer – epidemic of violence is one of the most brutal and relentless thrash albums of all time, it deserves a spot there imo
