Annihilator are back!

earMUSIC proudly announces a remarkable reissue series of (almost) the entire Annihilator catalogue. 

“Metal II” kicks off this extensive catalogue campaign that will give you special editions, bonus material, exclusive and previously unreleased tunes: All For You!  And “Metal II” is only the first taste, ahead of a huge catalogue campaign covering (almost) all Annihilator studio records and long-lost rarities. Fans have been waiting years and it’s finally happening: the much sought-after and previously unavailable Annihilator back-catalogue is getting a series of reissues via earMUSIC.

In total, 18 records are going to be released over the next few years, including the original 2007 version of the “Metal” album. The first single from this newly recorded album will be the song “Downright Dominate (feat Alexi Laiho, Dave Lombardo & Stu Block)” airing on November 12th 2021!

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

Waters passed over mixing duties to legendary engineer Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Van Halen) and it was remastered 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: One big metal party!

 

"Metal II" is dedicated to the memory of Eddie Van Halen and Laiho.
