It is not as simple as one might think as to what conditions make it feel fast
Needless to say, the sense of speed is an important factor in thrash metal.
Thrash metal artists should pursue “speed,” and I think there are many listeners who wish to do so.
However, it is not as simple as one might think as to what conditions make it feel fast.
Simply playing at a fast tempo may not make you feel fast.
There are many factors that form “speed”.
Tempo is directly related, of course, but there are others.
A piece of music with a fast-paced development will feel busy (and fast).
Sometimes it may feel faster to run a little bit than to play at just the right time.
If the lyrics are crammed in and shouted so fast, the speed of the experience will increase dramatically
One of the many ways to create a sense of “speed” is to use “fast lyrics”.
If the lyrics are crammed in and shouted so fast that it seems a little too much for Japanese people to sing, the speed of the experience will increase dramatically.
“Slayer”, for example, has many songs with fast lyrics.
“Dittohead” (from “Divine Intervention”) is a prime example.
He shouts a lot.
“Hell Awaits” (from “Hell Awaits”) is on the edge of ridiculousness with its overstuffed lyrics.
The German band “Kreator” is another example of a song that screams very fast.
On the other hand, “Sepultura” have many fast song, but the lyrics are not so fast.
Am I the only one who gets excited when the lyrics are poured out like a torrent?
I used to search for fast songs, but I didn’t find so many fast lyrics.
Maybe I should look for it again.

It’s still hard to find, fast lyric thrash.
Maybe it was already a reach with “Slayer”.
Yeah, I’d love to see “Slayer” gig.
“Sayonara, see you someday.”
I’m sure it will be, “Slayer”.
