Thrash metal is a type of heavy metal music, one of the extreme metal types of music, that is characterised by its high speed and aggression.

Origins[change | edit source]

The origins of thrash metal are generally traced to the late 1970s and early 1980s, when a number of bands began incorporating the sound of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal with elements of hardcore punk and more specifically Thrashcore, creating a new genre and developing into a separate movement from punk rock. This genre is much more aggressive compared to its relative, speed metal.
