Annihilator Feast on LP
Canadian metal band Annihilator is the lifework of guitarist Jeff Waters. Founded in 1984, the band took the metal scene by storm with their debut 1989 release Alice In Hell, upped the ante with 1990’s Never, Neverland and finished off their 3-record deal (Roadrunner Records) with Set The World On Fire. While most late-80’s era metal bands disappeared, Annihilator went on to forge 9 more studio albums, DVDs and live releases, all consistently selling well and remaining true to the heavy metal cause.
Tours with everyone from Judas Priest to Pantera to Trivium plus dozens of headlining tours, festivals around the world have been going on since 1989 for this band; no rest for the wicked. Annihilator has been touted as one of the best live acts in metal music. High-end musicianship, tight playing and massive energy and fun are what these lads are known for. Their music? Honest melodic thrash and heavy metal, combined with traces of blues, classical and jazz. Hell, there is even some death and punk in there, too.
In 2003, Dave Padden joined the band as vocalist and eventually took on the role of guitar player as well, a la Hetfield. Dave has sang on the last 4 studio releases and has now etched his name in stone as a top front man in the biz. Waters and company tear through each release with honest, raw power and energy, along with excellent technical skill and showmanship. Annihilator has given the metal world a sound that is one of the clearest, most tasteful mixture of huge, metal riffs with the idea of the perfect song. In fact, many non-metal acts and musicians cite Waters and Co. as huge influences in their rock/metal careers.
Annihilator is the biggest-selling Canadian heavy/thrash metal band in the country's history with close to 2 million units sold. Says Waters “We truly are among the few bands with a long history, that have always waved the flag for honesty, integrity and perseverance in this hard-edge category of music.” Annihilator isn't slowing up in the slightest with their 14th studio release, simply titled Feast which features nine brand new tracks that will kick your ass!
