Which is the #2 best thrash band ever? (assuming Metalica is #1)

Most would agree Metallica is the #1 thrash band of all-time (they headlined the Big 4 festivals, so 'nuff said). Let's not argue that. Instead, who do you think is the #2 best thrash metal band of all-time? Slayer? Megadeth? Anthrax? Another band (maybe Pantera, if that's considered Thrash)?

I expect it to be a battle between Megadeth and Slayer, but we'll see what you all think...

What if it's actually not Metallica who is #1?

Actually, Asking Alexandria would be the #1, so this thread is moot.

Well I'd say Metallica is number two, right behind Asking Alexandria, but since you ****ed that up... Asking Alexandria.

Metallica WAS the first Thrash band there is no argument to be made Megadeth would be 2nd followed very closely by Slayer (<-- more on that in a second). My answer is not based on anything after 1994. The reason I'm saying that is Slayer are now out of those choices the only band that stayed true to Thrash. You guys always forget Exodus as well. Megadeth (Namely, Dave Mustaine) gets shotgun anytime this subject comes up, but here are some facts for those of you who have either forgotten or weren't born yet. Metallica was James and Larz who later found Dave M. and Ron McG. , Ron was replaced with Cliff B. Dave shows James how to actually play guitar and writes most of K. E. A they club it , he never makes it to Rochester, NY to record the album gets replaced by Kirk H. from EXODUS.

So now Metallica are busy recording and selling K.E.A , Dave is putting together Megadeth , quickly it's Dave, David, Kerry King, Lee Rauch .... before they even make the first demo tape for Megadeth Kerry's out , goes and form/joins Slayer, Demo gets made and passed out. Fast forward in come Gar S. and Chris P. Now we have PEACE SELLS . Back track just a little here , Dave Mustaine showed James and Kerry his style Dave undoubtedly enhanced and influenced those 2 musicians ... you may not like him or think he is arrogant but the guy did PIONEER the FIRST 2 Thrash bands. Back to PEACE SELLS ... at this time NO BODY is playing this fast or with this technicality. Even by Metallica, Slayer, Exodus, Anthrax members own admission from Mtv interviews back int he day to documentaries over the years, Dave was the driving force for THRASH. So if you're speaking from a financial point of view Metallica won... if your view is who was the driving force behind the genre Dave Mustaine and Megadeth would be your answer. Little trivia bonus what was the first song ever recorded by Metallica and what album did it appear on? I'll check back for correct answers. P S who the **** is asking Alexandria... that can't be a Thrash band.

He gets on the radio and slags the shit out of Metallica, and then goes as far as to drag us into the argument, crying about how they’re stealing his riffs and now our riffs. He can’t go anywhere without telling everyone how weak everyone else is and how great he is. He even went as far as to tell everyone that he taught me how to play guitar! We’re playing with them on Halloween night, so we’ll save the arguments until after the show, after we’ve humbled him (which, by all reports, they did).”

And in what world is Peace Sells the fastest or most technical thrash album of its time? Try Slayer/Dark Angel/Kreator/etc for the former, and Watchtower for the latter. Mustaine was a drug-addled hack and loser and could not possibly be forgotten soon enough.

Holt, and Hammett's playing were not on par with Mustaine's technically & speed at that time... Slayer had nothing close to Peace Sells (Sept 19, 1986) until a little over a full month later when Reign in Blood (Oct 27, 1986) released and they decimated ALL including MOP . Dark Angel practically unheard of and weren't under that name until later, Kreator are bad ass love em but the conversation is about American Thrash.

It's clearly Asking Alexandria, and Black Veil Brides are probably a close second.
