Annihilator announces Fall/Winter 2018 European Headlining Tour

Annihilator did it again! Their new record “For the Demented” is thrash metal in perfection - furious, precise and relentless.

Mastermind Jeff Waters took to the record looking back without losing track of the future.

Listening to the new songs, there is no denying that the spirit milestones like “King of the Kill” or “Alice in Hell” is present, combined with years of experience and an unique vision.

Says Jeff Waters:

Anvil - Pounding the Pavement

Anvil seems to fail in failing to disappear from the world. They might actually survive along with cockroaches a nuclear holocaust that doesn’t seem to be all that far away these days than it was in their 80s heyday.
 
Album numero 17 for the Canadians with the same lineup – something that they have not been able to boast in the recent past. A more streamlined and edited sound seems to keep them sounding tighter, but at the same time does seem to steal a bit of their flair away.

After releasing their brand new album “Feed Me Violence”, Evil Invaders are stoked to announce that they will embark on their 2nd headline tour in Eastern Europe, Russia and Finland in April 2018!

This 4-piece Technical Speed/Thrash bulldozer has just returned home after their Central-European tour in support of their brand new album as direct support of Swedish Heavy Metallers Grand Magus, and are already announcing their next batch of headline shows! After a very successful 1st headline tour in late 2016 Evil Invaders will finally return to Russia, Finland, Ukraine, Belarus, Latvia and Lithuania.

Anvil to release new studio album “Pounding the Pavement” on January 19th 2018

Of course there are bands that have garnered higher chart positions, sold more albums and filled bigger venues than Anvil.

Yet there are few metal acts that have earned as much respect from their colleagues as the Canadian act surrounding vocalist/guitarist Steve “Lips” Kudlow and drummer Robb Reiner.

The most renowned Anvil aficionados include, among others, international stars such as Metallica and the late Lemmy of Motörhead, who have expressed their unreserved admiration time and again.

Evil Invaders - Feed Me Violence

Evil Invaders have been around for quite a while now, actually about a decade having a couple of EPs and now a sophomore album to account for all these year plus a fair few live performances under their belt; their style reminiscent of the Canadian thrashers like Exciter and Razor (their name is but an album of the latter) but also Zetro era Exodus and also maybe Violence.
 

Annihilator to release new studio album “For the Demented” on November 3rd 2017

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”.

Rage - Seasons of the Black

You can’t blame Rage for being slouchy, no sir. They have been active for more than thirty years and this one inclusive have released twenty three albums, the LMO project, countless live albums an EPs and have always delivered pretty consistently both in the studio as well as on the stage… never releasing a “bad” album.
 
“Seasons of the Black” is no different and the newest line-up of Peavy, Lucky and Marcos, the most basic trio you could have, delivers another album just a year after the really brilliant “The Devil Strikes Back” that’s really also inspired and doesn’t seem to miss a beat, which is a rather impressive task.

Evil Invaders are back! After touring extensively all over Europe in support of their highly acclaimed debut album “Pulses of Pleasure” (2015) and their intense follow-up EP “In for the Kill” (2016), these Belgians have managed to capture the ultimate collection of fucked up adrenaline and compressed violence onto one record! Their second monstrosity of an album is called “Feed Me Violence” and today release date, track listing & album artwork has been unveiled!

Annihilator announces Summer 2017 Canadian Tour

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.
