    EmeraldDark given a Damn from Rieznan in Who Are “The Big 4” of Thrash?   
    Before the Big Four of Thrash festival, I didn’t hear the title The Big Four referring to those specific bands. If I were asked who the biggest four of thrash were, I would say Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax. Someone else would say Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Testament or Exodus. 
    There hasn’t ever been any doubt that Metallica, Megadeth, and Slayer are the big three pioneers of thrash metal. However until the Big Four of Thrash festival the fourth was not confirmed. Since the festival whenever someone says The Big Four, everyone knows that Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax are meant. That festival raised the status of these bands (especially Anthrax) to the absolute best four bands of thrash. Anthrax was on the train on time, but Testament and Exodus missed the train.
    In other words: Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax were inofficially the big four of thrash, but that festival officially raised them on that status. People don’t have to guess anymore who are among the big four. (at least where I live).
