Which is your favourite thrash metal album?

Have included the two best albums of each member of the Big Four. If your favourite album isn't part of this list, vote for the one you like best and mention your favourite in the comments.

Edit: I voted for RIP

It's "Seasons in the Abyss", and by the "best two albums" rule, South of Heaven has to be in the list instead.

Out of the selection...I like rust in peace the most. Definitely are better albums though. I think At The Heart of Winter is definitely in the running for the title of "best thrash album".

Geographically close. It's From This Day Forward though.

Naturally everyone's idea of the best two albums will vary. So I took the most popular ones. Sorry about the Abyss mistake.

It seems silly to make a multiple choice poll for such an open ended question though.

it's a toss up. I don't want to pick a favourite because there won't be an answer, and frankly none of those "big four" releases live up to the hype they have. They're not even bad releases. They are all severely overblown though.

The only answer is Obsessed by Cruelty..No, wait...No More Colour. Actually, I think it's From This Day Forward. Well, Outer Isolation is pretty good too...Killing Technology is one beastly album, and so is Show No Mercy..but By Inheritance makes me feel good inside, or Infernal Overkill/Sentence of Death? And Spectrum of Death, and Darkness Descends...Evil Invaders? Oppressing the Masses? Think This? The Morning After?

I don't even listen to Thrash metal and all of those I consider marginally more impressive than all of those. Man. This is really not a good conversation to have. I mean, talk about thrash metal by all means because there's a thread for it. But a favourite album? It means you're inexperienced to pick one of so many.

I get your point. I just kinda wanted to know what people thought was the greatest thrash metal album, even if you haven't heard all of them almost everybody has a favourite.

I am not necessarily declaring that the winner of this poll is without doubt the best thrash album of all time. Just curious of the public opinion, that's all.

It has to be Hell Awaits. Show No Mercy and Killing Technology come close though.

Shit, I didn't even think of Vektor, but both of their albums are up there as far as I'm concerned. I know we're not "supposed to" mention contemporary bands in discussions such as these, just cause they're late for the party, but that's not even why I forgot. I'm just so attached to From This Day Forward.

That album marked a pretty big change in Immortal's sound, if it's a split between black and thrash, the thrash is more prevalent IMHO.
