Good Thrash/Metal Bands

I've been experimenting with listening to different thrash and metal bands (particularly ones born in the 80's) because I dont want to get sick of my favorite metal/thrash bands. I currently listen to Metallica, Megadeth, Diamond Head, Faith No More, and I am going to try Slayer and see if I like them too. I want you guys to know before you recommend any bands that I do not like Anthrax or Exodus' singing styles. I don't like the super forced "growling" sound either, so please try not to recommend any bands like these.
Also, it would be cool if you are in a band or someone you know an underground band that you think I would like. Send me the link to the facebook page or youtube video if there is one! I live in the Vancouver WA area, and if you have any shows coming up at All Ages venues around here, let me know! (Send a link to the music first so I can decide if they are worth wasting my time and money on)
Thanks for taking the time to read this really long post (assuming you read it all)

None of those are thrash bands ^

but +1 on Motorhead and CoC

@OP: I was going to make some suggestions, but since you are so limited on singing styles you like, I've decided it's not worth it. Sorry, but it's a real pet peeve of many metalheads when people complain about vocals. Just thought I'd let you know.

If you've heard one thrash/metal band, you've heard 'em both!

P.S. if you don't like Slayer then you need to quit.

OP's name is 80sThrasher and he's now just going "to try" Slayer? Hmmmmm.

Others have mentioned crossover bands like DRI. Also check out The Crumbsuckers, Cro-Mags, Verbal Abuse, Suicidal Tendencies, Agnostic Front...all great 80s crossover bands.

Sick Of It All would be a good one, too. They're still putting out good albums.

Not too thrashy but White Wizzard is an amazing Old school type metal band. They sound like a mix between maiden and priest with a bit of old school 'tallica thrown in.

If you want something highly under-rated, check out exhorder and opprobrium(formally known as incubus). these bands has some pretty killer songs.

Easily. Great riffs, great vox... can't ask for much more.
