try power chords with the major third instead of the fifth, you can make some nasty riffs with those that don't sound all standard power chord ish. you can use the minor third dyad too of course but i haven't really found a use for it in thrashy riffing myself

If you're going to say that a song like this is just "spammed powerchords", you could also argue that, using your example, Exodus just "spams notes". I hear a lot more than just powerchords in both bands- although I hear plenty of powerchords in this.


Just like I said. My ear only catches fast single string note picking, power chords, and fast palm muting when it comes to thrash O.o Both those bands use a lot of power chords, although Evile use more single string picking riffs I think.

Okay I can agree with that it's not just spammed power chords. It's ,IMO, spammed powe chords and fast palm muting xD

I know what gallops, hammer ons and triplets is, but can you be more specific when you talk about scales and modes, please?

If it is, then so is classic thrash.

So... you say you like thrash, and then complain about everything that makes thrash thrash?

Well you're trying to fit your music into a genre where it won't fit. It would be easier then if you just ignored the genre and make the music O.o

Yeah I see that, but that's kinda hard when I know how I want it to sound, and that is thrash, then I kinda need to follow the characteristics of thrash?

You misunderstood me. I meant, what's the difference between modern thrash and old-school thrash?

That's also no difference IMO. Many bands sound like Exodus which was, if i'm correct, also one of the pioneers

I agree about this New Wave generic behavior but now the topic has now taken a new direction.

Then what you need to do is starting finding your own voice.

Are Megadeth and Slayer similar in the way they sound? Testament and Morbid Saint? They use a lot of the same techniques, they're Thrash, but they don't sound the same. They may be using the same ideas of vocabulary and grammar, but they're writing completely different books because they all have something different to say in the way they want to sound.

Yeah you're right. But I feel it's hard to find my own style when so much have been done already :/

Well just make music then rather than talking about what sort of music you may or may not make.
