ANNIHILATOR are a Canadian heavy metal/thrash metal band founded in Ottawa in 1984. They are the best-selling Canadian band in their genre, having sold more than three million albums worldwide. ANNIHILATOR are led by co-founding member Jeff Waters.

The band has released 17 studio records and numerous live CDs, documentaries, acoustic sessions, compilations, and DVD offerings. Waters is the guitarist, vocalist, studio bassist, and writer for Annihilator, as well as a studio owner, producer, engineer, and mix and mastering engineer. Annihilator are known for killer live shows, lots of touring spanning more than 30 years, and pure, honest heavy metal meets thrash.

Fans have been waiting years and it's finally happening: the much sought-after and previously unavailable Annihilator back catalog is getting a series of reissues via earMUSIC.

In total, there are around 18 records to be released over the next few years, including the original 2007 version of the METAL album.

METAL II has been given an incredible overhaul with the one and only Dave Lombardo (Dead Cross, ex-Slayer) killing on the drums and lead vocals "re- invented" by the great Stu Block (Into Eternity).

Waters passed mixing duties over to legendary engineer Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Van Halen) and the album was re-mastered by Maor Appelbaum. The guest list on the album is huge with more than a dozen KILLER artists from bands like Lamb of God, Arch Enemy, Children of Bodom, Nevermore, In Flames, Trivium, Danko Jones, Anvil, The Haunted, and Lynam. It's one big metal party!

The first single from this new recorded METAL II album is "DOWNRIGHT DOMINATE" (featuring Alexi Laiho)."

Metal II is out February 18, 2022. Pre-order it here.

It will be out on CD Digipak, 2LP Gatefold black limited and 2LP Gatefold transparent orange limited.
