subgenre of heavy metal
Thrash metal is an extreme metal type of heavy metal music that is characterised by its high speed and aggression.
|Cultural origins||Early 1980s, United States, Germany, United Kingdom, and Latin America|
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.
