The 10 Greatest Thrash Albums Of 2017!
2017......an outstanding year for THRASH!
While the more established legends of the scene coughed up some damn fine adventures in thrash, 2017 was primarily the year that saw the new guard re-cementeing their credentials as saviours of the genre and shot a rocket up the ass of those bands who presume they can coast on their laurels.
Here’s Worship Metal’s Top 10 thrash albums for 2017….let the countdown begin:
10. Holycide – Annihilate…Then Ask!
Holycide? Holy fuck more like! These Spanish thrashers uncaged a beast with Annihilate…Then Ask!, their debut full-length album which obliterated all-comers back in February.
Spain has been bringing the noise for a few years now, with the likes of Exodia, Crisx, Soldier, and the more well known Angelus Apatrida, providing plenty of fresh frash-frills for fans worldwide. It was now Holycide’s turn to rip and tear their way through the masses and with a sound that was both clean yet still gritty, this collection of searing riffs and heavily accented vocals hit with maximum force.
Like a Spanish version of cult Californian thrashers Evildead, crossed with death metal’s earliest releases, Holycide’s Annihilate…Then Ask! reeked of late 80’s authenticity and the varied pace and gang-vocals of “Human’s Last Dawn” and Lemmy tribute “Motorhead” provided plenty of neck-snapping moments for thrash fiends!
Great place for Sepultura. Annihilator’s ‘For The Demented’ also deserves a mention.
Wow, what a weak list… Only 3 of that list deserve to be part of a top 10.
Cheers for that! Incidentally, which 3 deserved to be in a Top 10 and what alternatives do you offer?
I hope he included Nightmare Logic in that 3. That’s a beast of an album.
I hope so too!!! \m/
