Listen to Motorhead's Ace of Spades album.

Duh, of course I listened to that album before. It's a classic, and influential, but not thrash.

Don't know if this constitutes as Thrash, but I'd suggest: Liege Lord - Master Control.

I forgot to mention this album! It's been under my radar and it had a damm good 80s speed metal vibe. If you like this, you should try Thundersteel by Riot.

Spoiler

Well, the reason I don't consider this thrash is because they made their own schism. They invented a unique sryle that influenced so many post 90s metal bands which aren't thrash.

I don't classify them as thrash. No doubt they were heavily influenced by the thrash movement and they were accepting new heavy approaches, but they mixed those aspects with their own style.

The other reason why I don't consider them thrash is because a music genre is heavily associated with the time and era. Of course there are bands that does pretty much the same thrash stuff from the 80s, but they are thrash revival. They are tied with a certain era too. Painkiller and Jugulator didn't come from a thrash era or movememt, nor they were trying to recreate that. It's something unique in it's own right. Judas Priest always adopted quickly to the heavy music trend, and dropped some of the best albums of that era.

Only for a technical stand point, St. Anger is closer to a thrash approach than Painkiller or Jugulator.

I heard this album as well. It was the easiest Meshuggah album to start because it was thrash and heavily influenced by ...and Justice For All. Sometimes it feels like a spiritual siccessor of it way more than the black album. If metalica went prog, they would have released something like this two albums later.

Iron Angel - Hellish Crossfire is another album that comes to mind.

So it's not just sound, but whether or not the album was intentioned as part of the thrash movement as opposed to changing the sound to join in like Priest or influencing another genre like Pantera. 

Though I question the logic since you have Poison, Bathory, Celtic Frost and Discharge on your list too. 

And St.Anger closer to a thrash approach? 

:bea: Wut?

Poison (german band)'s album, Into the Abyss is unmistakably thrash.

I consider the first Bathory album pretty much solid thrash with eerie vocals and a unique tone. Early black metal wasn't very distant from thrash.

I don't know how to specifically classify Celtic Frost because they are very unique, but many metal bands inventing new genres used thrash as their medium and a vehicle in the 80s. I put Discharge because there are already so many hardcore punk bands that shares the same vein with thrash, but this band especially has more similarities with thrash. (Protest and Survive is a prime example)

St. Anger might sound like shit, but their songwriting and buildups, structures and riffs uses many thrash conventions, which themselves established 20 years ago.
