** There is also a small rivalry between fans of Thrash Metal and BlackMetal.



* GenreRelaunch: While there were still bands playing thrash metal throughout the 1990's and early 2000's, the genre suddenly saw a surge in popularity in the mid-2000's, mainly thanks to Municipal Waste. Labels such as Earache and Nuclear Blast capitalized on this, and by the end of the decade there were several well known acts playing "retro-thrash". While the genre itself is now in a good place again due to the renewed interest that they caused, the retro-thrash movement itself is thoroughly DeaderThanDisco due to oversaturation and widespread backlash against the derivative nature of most of the revivalists.

* GatewaySeries: Music/{{Metallica}} is one for thrash, and often to classic metal as a whole. Music/{{Slayer}} and the "big three" German bands (Music/{{Kreator}} especially) tend to be this for harsher thrash and often to extreme metal as a whole.

'''Thrash metal''' is a sub-genre of HeavyMetal. Basically, it's a fusion of HardcorePunk and the music of the NewWaveOfBritishHeavyMetal (NWOBHM; you know, Music/JudasPriest, Music/IronMaiden). In slightly more detail, thrash metal, also known as "thrash", features very fast, riff-heavy guitar playing, and equally fast drumming. Seriously, the overall musicianship is painfully fast... unless you're an actual thrash metal musician, in which case, it's not.
