Annihilator Release Free Best-of, Reissue Back Catalogue
Published Sep 23, 2010Proving that there's more unheralded Canadian metal out there to mine than just Anvil, legendary heavy music label Earache is in the midst of re-releasing six classic albums from Ottawa-based thrashers Annihilator's back catalogue. Earache has already kicked things off with three discs - Carnival Diablos, Criteria for a Black Widow and Waking the Fury - with King of the Kill, Remains and Refresh the Demon to follow shortly. While each record is getting reissued on CD and multiple pressings of coloured vinyl, the bad news for us Canucks is that these ragers are only being repressed in Europe.
Fortunately, Annihilator fans on this side of the pond will be satiated by Earache's free download-only compilation Total Annihilation, a retrospective of 14 of the fastest, most brutal onslaughts that'll be covered within the massive catalogue overhaul.
Shred along to Total Annihilation here.
