back_blows;2111079 said:Overkill formed in 1980 and started writing Unleash the Beast (within) in 1981 which is the year Metallica formed.

back_blows;2111159 said:Nah, I won't correct you on that, but pizza isn't a really nourishing breakfast.
DeadPhoenix223;2111154 said:false, you said venom has little in common with black metal; in Spider-Man, venom is black. And is afraid of the sound of metal, therefore, in relative theory, Venom has much to do with both Black and Metal.
Onslaught_fei;2111150 said:But it was not released until 1983 is my point. All of those bands played the local area, Metallica and Slayer managed to put out the first studio albums. Also I believe Exodus was actually formed before Overkill. That entire area was full of local speed metal bands and had the first shows where kids were coming out and "thrashing" around. I know Overkill has claimed to have recorded the first thrash song but their demo came out 3 years later.Its all really moot as the entire area collectively fed off each other to make thrash metal what it is.

back_blows;2111176 said:Bah, Metallica just fed off the *** of Exodus.
instantdeath999;2111196 said:I believe James Hetfield had released Hit the Lights with an earlier band before Exodus made their demo, which would make it technically one of the first Thrash songs.
Onslaught_fei;2111174 said:You know what, Im in love with your creative thread
back_blows;2111212 said:Bah. Stone Cold Crazy is the first thrash metal song.
