Wikipedia says that the four bands, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax, simultaneously created and popularized the genre in the early 1980s. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thrash_metal A good (but personal) site is: http://www.thethrashmetalguide.com/

I think Slayer, Judas Priest among others were the most significant pioneer Metal acts to ever come out in the genre but in my opinion the most promising metal band that really defined metal music and the one who really brought it to a greater height is no other than the Metallica, they're unarguably the best Metal band and there's no doubt about that.
