If it's thrash you're after then it's rhythm driven and note wanking all the way. Never stand still and never be happy with simple eights, whatever you do. Basically, screw melody and write aggression.

My recommendation would be to just pick a dozen or so of the songs you like, click up the tabs on the net and get cracking. Once you have some of the stuff you like in your fingers it's generally a lot easier.
