noun

  1. A variant of heavy metal music with fast tempos and violent lyrics.

  1. Thrash metal is an extreme subgenre of heavy metal music characterized by its fast tempo and overall aggression.

The lyrics often deal with social issues and reproach for The Establishment, using direct and denunciatory language, an approach which partially overlaps with the hardcore genre.
