Penta solos is your answer, and dorian mode... Riffs in E, A, D strings. This is the only few things that I know...

Trash theory? I believe the idea behind trash is to get rid of things that you dont want anymore...

THRASH, with and H, is a different story. Look into the different types of the minor scale (melodic, harmonic, natural), those are the main ones I think. Learn those, intervals, etc. and then just mess with them (but when you do this, make sure you're aware what you're doing) until something sounds good and then work from there.

THRASH, what you're trying to play is THRASH not trash. and there are no chord progressions or scales "used frequently" aside from the minor scales and blues scales, this type of music is generally more technical than normal pop/punk stuff.

****! how can I forget It?! Ok, but when you speak spanish isn't rare to have mistakes like that
Thanks a lot for your answers. No progressions? I didn't think this would can be so easy. I'll try with the scales that you put here, let's see what happens

Having little in common from song to song makes this harder, actually.

I suggest developing the ability to write songs like Brown Eyed Girl and other simple songs before you try writing the next The Four Horsemen; you've got to crawl before you can walk.

It's not like thrash uses I-IV-V-ii or something.
In general, a lot of songs are in E (or whatever the lowest string is tuned to). The E is used as a pedal point for executing riffs and emphasizing various scales. Common ones are Minor, blues scale, phrygian dominant, Locrian (Slayer). Slayer also likes to emphasize the tri-tone, etc. To get a good knowledge, you should analyze some songs.

i think the reason TRASH is called TrASH is because locrians last name was TRASH, so yea, makes sense...
