The 10 Greatest Thrash Albums Of 2017!

2017......an outstanding year for THRASH!

9. Havok – Conformicide

Proving once and for all that innovation is the mother of invention, Havok may have polarised opinion with Conformicide but we sit firmly on the side of the fence that loves this album for its bloody-minded belligerence and technical audacity.

Mind-bending rhythmic shifts jostled with the kind of crushing thrash riffs you’ve come to expect from David Sanchez and expectations were confounded at every turn.

Home to some of the finest bass-work we’ve heard in an age, elements of Blind Illusion merged with the technicality of prime Megadeth as acoustic passages, funked-up slap bass, moments of loose, free-flowing jazz and heads-down thrashing combined seamlessly.

Time Is Up remains Havok’s finest moment but Conformicide has revitalised the band, signalling a future that will surely result in technical thrash supremacy!

  1. Great place for Sepultura. Annihilator’s ‘For The Demented’ also deserves a mention.

  2. Wow, what a weak list… Only 3 of that list deserve to be part of a top 10.
