Thrash rules! And obscure thrash rules more. There were dozens and dozens of relatively unknown bands in all over the world in the golden era (85-91) but I must say that in Germany the thrash scene was one of the most outstanding in the world. Everybody talk always just the holy trinity D/K/S but there were lots of superb bands which didn't rise to the mainstream before it was too late to succeed in commercial way with thrash/speed. bands like Deathrow and Assassin always remained in the shadows of glorious trio but they were equally interesting. In pure entertainment factor a less professional versions of big names are fun to listen, pure energy versus sheer technical precision. Even mass hysteria is a long gone those relatively forgotten bands are still getting reissues and deserve it.
