No. 25: Anthrax, ‘Fistful of Metal’ – Best Debut Metal Albums

Anthrax, 'Fistful of Metal'
Megaforce

Anthrax‘s debut album, ‘Fistful of Metal,’ isn’t only the first piece of the band’s legendary career, it’s the album which birthed the term “thrash metal.”

Some of thrash’s greatest masterpieces (which you’ll see later in this list) had already been recorded and released, but the first song to ever be called “thrash metal” was Anthrax’s ‘Metal Thrashing Mad.’ The massively influential ‘Fistful of Metal’ is the act’s only full-length with Neil Turbin on vocals, and the 10-track record even contains a thrashed-out cover of Alice Cooper‘s ‘I’m Eighteen.’
