Faster than lightning and louder than war, thrash was the mutant lovechild of metal’s fist-in-the-air bravado and punk rock fury, and for a generation of 80s dropouts it was the ear-splitting antidote to the high-gloss sheen of pop, cold war hysteria, and the decade of greed. Developed in the early 80’s in the U.S, Thrash Metal represents the evolution of the so-called “New Wave Of British Heavy Metal”. The bands now known as the “Big Four” (Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax), borrowed the core elements of British Heavy Metal and added aggressive sounds, low-register guitar riffs and fast-tempos melodies.
The genre is known for the fierce loyalty of its legion of dedicated fans. And what better way to show solidarity than “Wear Your Thrash T-Shirt To Work Day”…
