Note: Some early thrash/black or death/thrash metal band may be included because they did lean more into the thrash metal realms and they contain some decent amount of thrash metal elements. Example: Kreator, Merciful Fate, Celtic Frost, and King Diamond! Or some of them revert their sound to thrash or originally are thrash but turn into black/death metal.
