The main disc of Triple
comprises a set of ANNIHILATOR‘s classics performed
acoustically, with band leader/guitarist/songwriter and vocalist Jeff Waters
bringing together band members Aaron Homma and Rich Hinks, Vancouver, BC
drummer and friend Marc LaFrance, plus Ottawa session player Pat Robillard.
Recorded and mixed by Waters, this quintet recorded everything live, off the
floor and in single takes at Watersound Studios in Dunrobin, Canada during late
May and early June 2016, giving Waters one of the most challenging, satisfying
and perhaps ‘electric’ creative moments in his career. 
The second disc will
feature ANNIHILATOR‘s vicious set from the 2016 BANG YOUR HEAD Festival,
a set which illustrates the very best of what Annihilator is known for – tight,
sharp, technically-excellent and melodic thrash metal music. It will also
contain some exclusive inside-ANNIHILATOR off-stage perspective, which
captures further elements, flavors and detail of the band which fans will flip

Jeff Waters states, “This
was one of the coolest things I have done in my long career. Having five people
in a room, from all different backgrounds and talents, coming together to play
songs from the past, and to try to sound like we are one but totally live and
with feeling. This was one of the biggest challenges that ANNIHILATOR has
faced, musically, but what impressed me the most was how you can hear all the
individual styles each player has and how we were able to glue the playing and
feel together. Done all in one take and with all the musical blemishes and
imperfections that I would never normally let slide!
This set covers some of
the melodic songs, one even from 1984 (when a few of these guys were not even
born!) and I just had to do this once in my life… to challenge myself and
maybe show some others that it’s not always just about the metal and the
thrash! Rock n’ roll and ballads are found everywhere in heavy metal.
are made up of a helluva lot of styles, mixed into one. That’s exactly what
kind of musicians I put together for this set – a mixed bag of rockers and
metalheads – and they made our legacy proud! Enjoy… we sure love this
