EP 19. 80s Thrash: Beyond The Big Four
Sep 01, 2020 Season 2 Episode 5
Steve Nelson & Keith Nottonson

Much to Keith's chagrin, it's time for another episode about metal. This time we take on perennial dad favorite: 80s thrash. While the average TNDR listener may know a couple Metallica songs, have heard of Megadeth and Anthrax, or even shouted, "Slayer!" at a concert, there is much more to the genre than just The Big Four.

Steve conducted some market research (i.e., texted a few friends) to come up with a list of the next best thrash bands from the 1980s. From over a dozen worthy contenders, all discussed here in way too much detail for Keith to handle, four remain to be named "The Next Four."

If you're ready to bang your head, to make it bleed, make it really sore, jump into the pit and mosh to these:
"In League With Satan" by Venom
"The Toxic Waltz" by Exodus
"Into the Pit" by Testament
"Thanx For Nothing" by Overkill
"New Song" by Nuclear Assault
"Trip At the Brain" by Suicidal Tendencies
"Walk" by Pantera
"Hard On You" by Flotsam & Jetsam
"The Usurper" by Celtic Frost
Falling Asleep” by Death Angel
"Beyond the Black" by Metal Church
"Desperate Cry" by Sepultura
"Executioner's Tax (Swing of the Axe)" by Power Trip
