Weren't they originally from LA?


I have no idea. I always thought of them as a bay area band. John Gossard should be answer this.

Yes, they were originally from Downey/Norwalk, but they moved to the Bay Area before Kill 'em All.

I'd go with Twisted into Form over this one but you really can't go wrong with either.

Those Violence and Heathen albums are probably my two favs from the bay area.

Just found Black Dethe on Youtube too.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5S7Ee7p42Y

If you like Heathen there is some older pre-Heathen stuff too with
Anvil Chorus
More of classic heavy metal sound than thrash though, but great double guitar solos.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fD-JA2_WoA

Also the more punk sounding Control with Doug Piercy and Ed Bull (Metal Church's first vocalist from the demos)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEscpmZ_HWE

Metal Church was also SF based in the demo days around 80-82 or so
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DsEvhD73EU

Griffin http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7AwDrVTBSY

Ah well, I am thinking of more heavy metal stuff than thrash I guess.

The Ruthie's Inn "Eastern Front" comp mentioned previously has some great tracks on it.

Griffin was great and is definitely under-appreciated in comparison to Metallica et al.

Griffin - Flight of the Griffin vs. Metallica - Ride the Lightning (same year of release, same location) probably serves as the epitome of the age-old debate regarding the difference between "speed" and "thrash" metal. If someone asked me what the difference was between these two sub-genres, I would tell them to listen to these two albums consecutively.

I like some of the more tech/power oriented bands like Flotsam & Jetsam, Heathen and Forbidden but "Bonded By Blood" and "Ride the Lightning" simply crush all other Bay Area stuff.

latter-day Hexx is worth considering too, imo.

Sadus and Hexx are amazing as well. I totally forgot about them.

I think this is common knowledge, but figured I would mention Legacy, which was Testament in the demo days, but with Zetro on vocals before he joined Exodus.

A few more

Trauma (with Cliff Burton before Metallica) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ae6SX5bfU6o

Assassin http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epe2tWJgJqQ

Annihilation http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aakxDb61W4M

Horde of Torment (previously named Pestilence) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxWPhFilcOc

Contempt (kind of shitty, but RARE!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmLtS0RnE6M

Because they wanted Cliff Burton in the band and he didn't want to leave SF !
