1984 was the year thrash metal sent its first shots across the bow as scene leaders Metallica released their crucial sophomore effort Ride The Lightning and Anthrax issued their searing debut album, Fistful of Metal. Deeper into the underground still, Celtic Frost and Bathory issued their first recordings which would help shape the sound and imagery of black metal...This list doesn’t even take into account important EPs by the likes of Slayer, Overkill and Hellhammer not to mention crucial demos from the tape trading underground.
