Official press release: Earache Records is very proud to announce the signing of Canadian thrash metal pioneers Annihilator to a European deal. Since releasing their classic Alice In Hell debut in 1989, Annihilator has consistently played heads-down, no-frills metal, led by guitar virtuoso Jeff Waters. Now, in 2009, Earache is proud to welcome one of the originators of the whole melodic-thrash style to its roster, with a brand new (13th) studio album set to be released in the new year. A selection of back catalogue albums are also due to be released at a later date. Annihilator guitarist and main-man Jeff Waters comments: "Finding a label home for Annihilator in Europe has never been difficult. Finding a good, professional and stable one, that really knows metal, is another matter. We found one! Earache and Annihilator are going to make a great metal team and I can't think of anyone else that should be putting the new Annihilator CD out but them! See you all in 2010!" Earache Records label manager Dan Tobin adds: "Annihilator have continually flown the flag for metal in general and thrash in particular for many years, and with Jeff Waters at the helm have produced some of the most innovative and distinctive metal releases around. Earache looks forward to teaming up with Jeff and spreading the gospel of Annihilator far and wide with a killer new album that is sure to surprise a lot of people with its genuine intensity and aggression." www.myspace.com/Annihilatorofficial
