Welcome to the first installment of Manny’s Magical Genre Guide. The idea here is to provide a primer for people that are interested in getting into thrash but haven’t really ever taken the time to get a proper foundation. Through my own history with metal, a bunch of research and talking to some people that are well versed in the subject, I put together this compact genre guide. What it should provide is self-conscious-free learning about metal genres that more people should be aware of. Basically, I do the research and you reap the benefits. In our first installment we are going to hit up Metal’s awesome roots: Thrash.
