Annihilator Audio CD
2010 release, the 13th album from the Canadian Thrash Metal gods. 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.
Classic Annihilator sound, riffs and solos. Yet, something entirely new and surprising! It has really heavy rythms, then moves to killer thrash riffs and then they come to something a little bit progresive to distract you, and before you know it they make up this incredible heavy riff that will blow your head. Also the voice is much heavier now which was my only complaint about their previous album "Metal" back in 2007. I would recommend this album to all of you thrash metal heads of the world! You will not be dissapointed, this is the album you've been waiting for!!
Metal Annihilator | Format: Audio CD
For the true connoisseurs of intelligent, virtuosic heavy metal, Annihilator stands alone. Lead by the shredding axe of Jeff Waters, the brand new release (appropriately entitled "Metal") stands as a testament to Annihilator's status in the metal world. An impressive all-star cast joins Waters and company on this metallic tour-de-force, including Alexi Laiho from Children Of Bodom, Corey Beaulieu from Trivium, Willie Adler from Lamb Of God, Jesper Stromblad from In Flames, Anders Bjorler from The Haunted, Michael Amott from Arch Enemy, Jeff Loomis from Nevermore and many more! Now this is METAL!
I just got this CD, and I couldn't put it away once I started listening to it. It's got the ussual great music done by guitar wizard Jeff Waters, which he covers everything from heavy metal to speed to thrash. A good variety as always and Dave Padden's vocals were ever so good, but as a bonus, Jeff has brought long-time Annihilator fans from members of bands like Trivium, Children Of Bodom, Lamb Of God, Arch Enemy and others
(Alexi Laiho (Children Of Bodom), Danko Jones (Danko Jones), Michael Amott and Angela Gossow (Arch Enemy), Corey Beaulieu (Trivium), Willie Adler (Lamb Of God), Jeff Loomis (Nevermore), Jesper Stromblad (In Flames), Steve 'Lips' Kudlow (Anvil), Anders Bjorler (The Haunted), Mike Mangini (Vai, Extreme, Annihilator) and Jacob Lynam (Lynam))for back ground singers.
METAL is a really good CD that every Annihilator fan should own.
