Thrash Metal

Thrash metal is a sub-genre of heavy metal that is characterized most typically by its fast tempo and aggression. Thrash metal songs typically use fast percussive beats and fast, low-register guitar riffs, overlaid with shredding-style lead work. Lyrically, thrash metal songs often deal with social issues and reproach for The Establishment, often using direct and denunciatory language, an approach which partially overlaps with the hardcore genre.Thrash metal's "Big Four", the four bands widely regarded as the genre's most successful and influential acts, are Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax due to their status as pioneers of the genre in the 1980s.
