The image behind the music
Acolyte no. XXXV here. I didn't write this intending to make a statement. Instead maybe you can share your views on something that doesn't get talked about much.
What do you associate with Thrash Metal? What do you think of the "image" portayed by thrashers, and what they consider to be thrash? What are the most significant changes compared to back in the mid 80's to modern day 08?
Personally, I've found that the lyrics have always had dominating themes such as war, wastelands, death, beer, mosh pits, zombies, partying, occasional satanism and anything that might be radio-active. It's almost your classic teenage comic book/horror fiction coming to life in musical form, and it show's on alot of album covers. Edward J. Repka is an excellent example, known for his artwork for Megadeth's "Peace Sells.." and "Rust In Peace", Nuclear Assault's "Game Over", Vio-lence's  "Eternal Nightmare" and more recently, Municipal Wastes "Hazardous Mutation."
Do you judge from a bands album cove

Literature
Thrash is Dead
        It has been commonly heard that Punk is dead. Old School Punk fans who realize what the genre was supposed to be about, see the commercial aspect of today's music that masquerades itself as "Punk", when it's nothing but more shit to sell to the consumer to make a buck, it's become a product to sell to the consumer, it is no longer that the band is using the music to introduce ideas of Anarchy and Revolution like bands such as Crass did, but instead is filled with bands that are using the ideas of Punk, and rebellion to sell their band, without believing in it. What does this have to do with Thrash Metal? Well, Thrash Metal like the Punk music that influenced Bay Area bands such as Overkill, is now dead as well. Obviously, there are some exceptions, and the true spirit of Thrash can be found in bands like Heathen which are still carrying on as true Thrash, and new bands like Sweden's Corrupt-Corrupt is challenging the idea of Thrash that i

Nossek here. Please welcome :iconand66rewu: to the prestigious Thrash-Metal club! :lol: I thought I was thrash, but this guy's way above me. Guy makes me look like a poseur. :XD: Oh wait, I forgot. I am a poseur!
Oh shit, I forgot. I'm supposed to give him the password, right? =p

_________________________________________________________________________________________
Hey guys! I, Nossek, fuckin' finally got into this goddamn club and it's my opportunity to share some of my art. You will all wish you had never been born... I kept the previous journal fully intact (sans a few grammatical corrections and the addition of myself) in this one so... I dunno... bitch less.

About me: I'd like to meet some cool motherfuckers here but I'm not a purist, keep that in mind if you wanna talk to me. If you want to know more, click on my fuckin' profile link!

Thrash metal I like includes (in no particular order):
Metallica
Coroner
Nailbomb
Dark Angel
Overkill
Hellhammer
Nuclear Assault
Slayer
Anthrax
Suicidal Tendencies
Stormtroopers Of Death
Mekong Delta
Celtic Frost
Sadus
D.R.I.
Voivod
Kreator
Megadeth
Exhorder
Demolition Hammer
Sepultura
Cavalera Conspiracy
Testament
Warbringer

Toxic Holocaust
Exodus
Strapping Young Lad (kinda hard to classify; maybe they surpass thrash...)
Ministry (they thrashed up on their last few albums)
Soulfly (listen to Dark Ages and Conquer and tell me you don't hear thrash)
Amebix (do they count? Crust punk and heavy metal makes thrash, right?)
Doom (they have pretty much everything thrash has except solos. They're on the edge of grindcore, too)

View my deviations! Lest your children perish in flames...

Purpose:
This group was constructed for fans of the great metal genre, Thrash Metal (Old School Thrash only, this isn't meant to serve for bands such as Pantera, those bands are half thrash). While most commonly related to the genre of Speed Metal, the two genres are different with Thrash being played in a more aggressive type style then speed. The most commonly known bands in this genre are as followed, Sepultura, Slayer, Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax, Exodus, Testament, Dark Angel, Death Angel, Kreator, Vio-lence, Nuclear Assault, Heathen along with many more. This group is meant to serve as a place for fans of the genre to gather. It is a place to submit art, photos, and whatever else related to Thrash Metal bands. It is to serve as a way to share artwork influenced by the genre and to bring attention to thrash bands that aren't commonly known about. It is encouraged to also join the forum to discuss different things (details under message board section) thrashmetal.proboards2.com/ind… . If you have a band of your own which plays Thrash and have a demo posted online and would like to get attention, send me a note and I'll post about it in the journal.

Requirements to join:
1. Obviously, if you want to join, you must like Thrash Metal.
3.Send a note to the group requesting to join. Please, do not just watch the group and assume that we will realize that you want to join, watching the group doesn't say anything, please send a note. Within that note please include the name of your favorite Thrash Metal band(s).www.metal-archives.com/browseG… ). Membership requests on the front page wont be ignored, but they wont be noticed as quickly a note will. Please do not list Pantera, Machine Head, The Haunted, Lamb of God or any of those other bands as your favorite thrash band, they are NOT Thrash, they are groove.

Deviations for the group:
All deviations for the group will be accepted, this includes all of the following; Aviators, IDs, Photomanipulations, album reviews (of thrash metal bands only of course), and whatever else you can think of. Of course all artwork has to do with Thrash Metal bands, only the "old school thrash" to be specific, while that should be the only thing considered thrash, some are considering such things as Pantera and the Haunted as the "new wave of thrash metal" which is just fucking stupid but that's aside the point, this group is for the real thrash only and will only accept deviations about real thrash, none of this new crap (Note: new bands such as Heathen and Corrupt that are still playing old school thrash, it doesn't matter that they are new, we will accept deviations for them). If you want to submit a deviation, send a note to the group with the link to the deviation at which point we will submit it onto here, you're name and the link to the original deviation will be posted in the description giving you, the artist, full credit for the deviation. It may sound like I'm being a prick but I prefer to keep everything to the original reason to what this group is dedicated to and if I was to deviate away from that and allow things based on post-thrash/groove bands like Pantera than that wouldn't serve the purpose of why this group was created.
