ANNIHILATOR: New Album Cover Posted Online

Long-running Canadian thrashers ANNIHILATOR have posted the cover artwork for their upcoming CD, "All For You", at this location.

As previously reported, "All For You" is tentatively due this spring through Germany's AFM Records. The forthcoming CD marks the recording debut with the group of new singer Dave Padden, who replaced previous vocalist Joe Comeau last June. The album also features a return appearance by drummer Mike Mangini (EXTREME, STEVE VAI) following the departure of Randy Black (PRIMAL FEAR) in early October.

"All For You" track listing:

01. All For You
02. Weapon X
03. The Nightmare Factory
04. The One
05. Demon Dance
06. Rage Absolute
07. Both Of Me
08. Bled
09. Dr. Psycho
10. Holding On
11. The Sound Of Horror

Commented mainman Jeff Waters in a recent online posting: " [The song 'Weapon X'] is probably the most brutal ANNIHILATOR song EVER written. I honestly would compare it to 'Battery' by METALLICA — and I would NEVER ever try to compare something I did with a classic tune like that unless I could back I up. Dave, Mike and I can!

"The song 'All For You' will 'probably' be the single as it is one of those darn tootin' tunes that you will hear once and NOT be able to forget the chorus!"

With regards to the songwriting process for the new album, Waters said, "I demoed 18 songs [using a drum machine]. Weeded out the weakest ones and then got Dave/Mike to do their stuff over the 11 I picked. It was [actually] 12, but one was noticeably weak — could [have] made it on any other CD, but not this one."
