The Big 5: New school thrash bands

I think most of us can agree that thrash is an awesome genre, one of the best genres in metal.  I mean, you got Testament, Sodom, ExodusDeath Angel and obviously a lot more.  These bands released wicked albums 20 plus years ago and some of them are still releasing  quality albums. (Death Angel being the best today but that’s for another discussion).  Also, you can’t forget The Big Four, these guys are the reason why thrash metal is still a respected genre to this day.  Master Of Puppets, Rust In Peace, Among The Living, Reign In Blood, these albums are classics – not just in thrash, but in metal history.

But what about the new bands? Is there a new Big Four?  No, but I decided to list the five biggest new school thrash bands today.   Two of the bands are somewhat popular in metal already, the other three are up and coming and releasing awesome stuff.

So, if you’re someone stuck listening to the oldies (don’t worry, I’m not telling you to stop), then give some of the new guys a chance.

Make the jump for the Top 5 new school thrash bands.

Bonded By Blood get new blood

Bonded By Blood are a promising thrash metal band from Pomona, California.  Front man Jose Barrales decided to leave the band at the end of 2010 and since then, they quickly replaced him with Mauro Gonzalez to finish the tour.  Apparently they’ve been killing it live the last couple months, so they decided it was fair that Mauro Gonzalez would be the permanent vocalist for the band.

Jerry Garcia, bassist for Bonded By Blood states:

We would like to formally announce that Mauro Gonzalez is now officially the new frontman for Bonded By Blood. He has shown great promise and dedication in the past few months and we have received great reviews from many old fans, new fans, and well-established musicians throughout our recent North American trek. We are very excited about our decision and we hope that you guys welcome him into the BBB family like we have! See you guys on the killing road real soon.

When asked for comment, Jose Barrales started singing the words to “Metal Command” from Exodus and then predicted he will replace Rob Dukes by the end of the year.
