Thrash is a type of music forged from good old punk and some metal. Thrash started with bands such as Slayer and Metallica, though only some early albums of Metallica. The sound was adored by many punks and metal heads. Thrash sounded much like metal but with many punk features. Soon Thrash was slowly picked up around the world. Bands slowly began to rise, bands such as Dirty Rotten Imbeciles, Toxic Holocaust and Votesk. Dirty Rotten Imbeciles were first among many to use more of the punk in thrash, so far as creating a even newer sub-genre called Crossover Thrash, though not very popular to the world.
