The 10 Greatest Thrash Metal Albums Of All Time!

Simply the best!

7. Testament – The New Order (1988)

We maintain that The New Order is Testament‘s greatest album, a full-bodied statement of intent from a band who knew they had an opportunity to not only compete with The Big 4 but surpass even their accomplishments!

History tells us that Testament would never quite break through to the same level as Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer but their recorded output defies that fact, and The New Order remains one of the most potent and consistently thrilling thrash albums in existence.

When an album reads like a greatest hits set you know you’re on to a winner and with the title track, “Trial by Fire,” “Disciples of the Watch and the iconic “Into the Pit” making up the core of this legendary album, The New Order‘s credentials speak for themselves.

Reeking of quality, Testament’s The New Order is mandatory listening for anyone with even a passing interest in thrash and epitomises why thrash dominated the 80’s like no other genre!

Honourable mention: Testament’s debut, The Legacy, is also beyond reproach and utterly essential.

    I love Sepultura, and “Beneath The Remains” is undoubtedly a masterpiece, but I honestly believe that place belongs to Anthrax’s “Among The Living”, who I reckon are PART of the big four. If there was only one Anthrax album to listen, then it is definitely “Among The Living”. And Vio-Lence, no matter how great of an album “Eternal Nightmare” is, that place belongs to either Sodom’s, “Persecution Mania” or Destruction’s “Eternal Devastation”. It’s
    a tight list!
