Thrash Metal Description

Thrash metal is a subgenre of heavy metal music, one of the extreme metal subgenres, that is characterised by its high speed and aggression.

The origins of thrash metal are generally traced to the late 1970s and early 1980s, when a number of bands began incorporating the sound of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal with elements of hardcore punk (in particular its drum tempos), creating a new genre and developing into a separate movement from punk rock. This genre is much more aggressive compared to its relative, speed metal. There is often significant crossover from one metal category to another, and the influence of non-metal genres, including classical music and jazz, is not uncommon.

Despite in an obvious influence of American hardcore punk, thrash metal is probably one of the most technically (and sometimes musically) complex hard rock/heavy metal subgenres, along with death metal. The subgenre often contains a somewhat progressive musical structure as well, particularly in thrash during the late 80's when the genre began to distance itself more from punk and came into its own as a subgenre. As a result many thrash bands, such as Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Testament, Dark Angel, Heathen and Watchtower have frequently overlapped into progressive metal territory. Canadian band Voivod really got into progressive metal in the late 80's, becoming something akin to a thrash/progressive metal hybrid. In addition, prog metal bands such as Dream Theater have frequently cited a few of the aforementioned bands as influences, especially Watchtower and Metallica (who DT drummer Mike Portnoy even considered a "progressive rock" band in his 'Brief History of Progressive Rock' speech on the Dream Theater Live at Budokan DVD special features).

The genre features extremely-fast tempos, and low-register, fast and complex guitar riffs, layered with high-register guitar solos, tightly controlled riffs, in combination with palm muting to create a "chugging" sound. Thrash guitar solos are almost exclusively played at high speed, as they are usually characterised as shredding, and use techniques such as sweep picking, legato phrasing, alternate picking, string skipping, and two-hand tapping. Thrash lead guitarist are rooted in the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement, but with more influence from progressive rock and speed metal. As with many other metal sungenres, thrash lead guitarists are often influenced by outside musical genres too, such as jazz fusion (Ex-Megadeth guitarist Chris Poland) and classical music , such as Marty Friedman and Alex Skolnick, have lead styles that could be grouped in the neoclassical shred genre.

The speed and pacing of the songs is what defines thrash metal. The music tends to have a visceral, propellant feel to it due to the often intense drumming, most commonly utilizing the snare drum on the 1/2 beat, or the 2nd and 4th beats of the measure. Frantic bass drum use is also common. Thrash drummers use two foot-pedaled bass drums, known as "double bass" or a "double kick" almost exclusively. Many thrash drummers, such as Dave Lombardo, Gene Hoglan, and Charlie Benante, are revered as some of the best drummers in rock music, due to their ability with the double bass as well as adequately keeping time.[citation needed]

Due to the genre's high speed, thrash bassists use a pick to keep up with the other instruments. However, a few prominent bassists in the subgenre, including Carl Peterson, Frank Bello, Greg Christian, Steve DiGiorgio and Cliff Burton have shunned the use of the pick. Distorted bass (also popularized by Burton, and Lemmy) is not uncommon.
