Thrash Metal

  • Fast tempo and lots of aggression, fast percussion, low guitar riffs, shredding style of guitar playing
  • Big 4 Thrash Metal bands: Anthrax, Slayer, Megadeath, Metallica.
  • Anthrax - Madhouse - it's set in-front of a mental asylum mixed in with theperformance concept. Fast takes in time with the music split screen effect is used.
  • Metallica - Fade To Black - completely performance based, footage taken from an actual live gig, black is used quite a lot and it helps to signify the genre, they are also wearing black.
  • As with most performance music videos, there is lots of focus put on the lead singer and in Thrash Metal they are normally male and sometimes topless.
