  • ANNIHILATOR To Release "For The Demented"

    Since 1989, Canada's ANNIHILATOR have not stopped putting out records and touring the world. Despite the ever-changing climate of the metal world (and releasing a series of "different" metal records with various lineups along the way), Jeff Waters and company have consistently delivered strong albums since the band's debut Alice In Hell. Then there was 1990's best-selling Never, Neverland, 1995's King of The Kill, Schizo Deluxe in 2005 and many other critically-acclaimed releases up until 2015's Suicide Society. The 'under-the-radar' influence of this band, and writer/guitarist/vocalist Jeff Waters, has been felt throughout the entire realm of the metal world by a ton of well-known musicians and bands; that influence even stretching into the hard rock and instrumentalist genre.

    Which all leads to the fact that ANNIHILATOR's 16th studio release, For The Demented (out November 3, 2017 via Neverland Music/Silver Lining Music), is certainly their most complete and definitive statement yet. The album will be available in a Limited Edition Digipack with Lenticular cover, a jewel-case CD, a 12" 180gms coloured vinyl in gatefold and digital download. Pre-order will go live next week.

    Tracklist:

    1. Twisted Lobotomy
    2. One to Kill
    3. For the Demented
    4. Pieces of You
    5. The Demon You Know
    6. Phantom Asylum

  • ANNIHILATOR Announce First Canadian Tour In Over 20 Years!

    Canada’s 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 has continued a non-stop career-pattern of releasing records and touring with many of the biggest bands in the metal genre (mostly all outside North America), ever since; cementing ANNIHILATOR as the biggest-selling metal act in Canada’s history.

    After 18 months of touring for the band’s latest album “Suicide Society” (nominated for a 2017 Juno Award in the Metal / Hard Rock Album of The Year category), the band is currently finishing up their 16th studio release and is getting ready to headline not only the mighty WACKEN OPEN AIR Festival in Germany (Aug 3), but hit the road for their first Canadian tour since 1993.

    The tour will see the band kick off their first date in Victoria, BC on June 13th and travel east wrapping up the tour in Cornwall, ON July 1st during Canada day weekend festivities. This is very big news for Canadian metal fans, both young and “older” whom have been waiting for an ANNIHILATOR tour to return to Canadian soil for over 20 years!

  • ANNIHILATOR Releases "Triple Threat" Three-Disc Collection via UDR

    Today marks the release of legendary Canadian thrash/heavy metal band ANNIHILATOR's Triple Threat - a three-disc collection of their music based in a trio of very different scenarios - out via UDR Music.

    Triple Threat is available now in several formats, including DVD/2CDs, Blu-Ray/2CDs, a 2CD audio-only and digital download.
     
    Order links:
     
    The main disc of Triple Threat comprises a set of ANNIHILATOR's classics performed acoustically, with band leader/guitarist/songwriter and vocalist Jeff Waters bringing together band members Aaron Homma and Rich Hinks, Vancouver, BC drummer and friend Marc LaFrance, plus Ottawa session player Pat Robillard. Recorded and mixed by Waters, this quintet recorded everything live, off the floor and in single takes at Watersound Studios in Dunrobin, Canada during late May and early June 2016, giving Waters one of the most challenging, satisfying and perhaps 'electric' creative moments in his career. 
     
    The second disc features ANNIHILATOR's vicious set from the 2016 BANG YOUR HEAD Festival, a set which illustrates the very best of what ANNIHILATOR is known for - tight, sharp, technically-excellent and melodic thrash metal music. It also contains some exclusive inside-ANNIHILATOR off-stage perspective, which captures further elements, flavors and detail of the band which fans will flip over. 

    Unplugged: The Watersound Studios Sessions:
     
    01. Sounds Good To Me
    02. Bad Child
    03. Innnocent Eyes
    04. Snake In The Grass
    05. Fantastic Things
    06. Holding On
    07. Stonewall
    08. In The Blood
    09. Crystal Ann
    10. Phoenix Rising
     
    Live At The BANG YOUR HEAD Festival:
     
    01. King Of The Kill
    02. No Way Out
    03. Creepin' Again
    04. Set The World On Fire
    05. W.T.Y.D. (Welcome To Your Death)
    06. Never, Neverland
    07. Bliss
    08. Second To None
    09. Refresh The Demon
    10. Alison Hell
    11. Phantasmagoria
     
    The BluRay and DVD visual content is split in 3 parts:
     
    Chapter I - Annihilator Un-Plugged: The Watersound Studios Sessions (62 mins)
    Chapter II - Annihilator Live at the BANG YOUR HEAD Festival (45 mins)
    Chapter III - ANNIHILATOR: Summer Mini-Documentary 2016 (45 mins)
    Plus Bonus Video Chapters: "Jeff's Commentary On The Acoustic Songs" and "Jeff Answers Fan Questions"

    Plus Bonus Video Chapters: "Jeff's Commentary On The Acoustic Songs" and "Jeff Answers Fan Questions"

    Jeff Waters states, "This was one of the coolest things I have done in my long career. Having five people in a room, from all different backgrounds and talents, coming together to play songs from the past, and to try to sound like we are one but totally live and with feeling. This was one of the biggest challenges that ANNIHILATOR has faced, musically, but what impressed me the most was how you can hear all the individual styles each player has and how we were able to glue the playing and feel together. Done all in one take and with all the musical blemishes and imperfections that I would never normally let slide!

    This set covers some of the melodic songs, one even from 1984 (when a few of these guys were not even born!) and I just had to do this once in my life... to challenge myself and maybe show some others that it's not always just about the metal and the thrash! Rock n' roll and ballads are found everywhere in heavy metal.

    ANNIHILATOR are made up of a helluva lot of styles, mixed into one. That's exactly what kind of musicians I put together for this set - a mixed bag of rockers and metalheads - and they made our legacy proud! Enjoy... we sure love this one."
