Yeah a whole load in common which is cool. Our thrash taste is not so far different. Apart from your distaste for the big 4 bands releasing anything new and the ones underneath like Testament, Overkill, Exodus etc. Notice Anthrax didn't make my list either. I just can't get into them.
Yeah, I have not liked much from modern Metallica, Megadeth, or Slayer, or Overkill. I own the two most recent Anthrax discs. Brotherhood of the Snake is the first Testament I have dissed in a while.
Man the new disk slays IMO. I don't know why you don't like it. The riffs and production is just great to me. There's little hints of classic Testament in there.

I own most
of the newer Exodus. So, a mixed bag, but I clearly prefer high quality rethrash bands to new output from many of the classic bands. That said, Death Angel, Kreator, Destruction, and others routinely still make my list these days.

Also, no The King Must Die - Murder All Doubt or Untimely Demise - Black Widow on your list? Sad, man.
TKMD I couldn't get into. I don't know what happened with UD. I don't actually recall hearing it though I may have listened and dismissed it. When you go through the amount of shit we go through this can happen and I don't tend to note down my dismissals like you seem to do. Maybe I should do this for next year although it requires a bit more effort hehe.
