Love For All Things Metal: Annihilator




"If you pick up only one metal cd this year, pick this one up! If it wasn't for Annihilator, there wouldn't be an In Flames." - Jesper Strömblad (In Flames)
"I listen to Jeff's new Annihilator cd 'Metal' in my car while zipping my son, Justis, off to high-school each morning. He puts it in the cd player and shows me all his favorite spots; it makes me proud that he digs good metal!" - Dave Mustaine (Megadeth)
"Annihilator's ‘Metal’ is, and will live on as, a classic record." - Willie Adler (Lamb Of God)
"The whole concept of the album is definitely fun and you don't have to be a guitar player to enjoy it either. It's Annihilator, it's Metal. End of story." - Alexi Laiho (Children Of Bodom)
"With all the guests on the new Annihilator album, 'Metal', it's obvious how much of an influence Jeff Waters has had on musicians everywhere. Now it's time for the next generation to find out how great this band is." - Danko Jones (Danko Jones)



The above words are how they explain their love for the band I have had a love for them ever since I heard "Allison Hell" and still am I love everything that I have heard from them, I just need to see them live now.
Songs like "King of the Kill" and many, many others where this is just kick-ass metal, great guitars and drums, bass & clean singing I love these guys and making this long overdue feature on them, with more to come on some of my favorite bands.
So to share with you that might be unaware of their awesomeness I have some videos to share and will be surprised if you like metal that you don't care for them.


Interview with Jeff Waters this was almost a year ago now.







"King of the Kill" video



"Knight Jumps Queen" rehearsal for tour video.

"Stonewall"


                                      "Syn. Kill 1"



                                    "Phantasmagoria LIVE!!"

There is a few reasons why they are one of my favorite bands of all time, they need to come back to Vancouver and give us a show as I have never had the pleasure of seeing them live. As shown above they are awesome live and they have the following to come here and if need be I will get a petition going to see if I can get them here. Some other bands have lost focus of what music to play but that is fine ANNIHILATOR never has strayed from Metal
Hope to see them soon on tour here--Please guys?

Thank you for reading this
