Canadian thrash metal pioneers Annihilator reveal artwork for their upcoming new album

Annihilator’s new, self-titled release is the band’s thirteenth studio album and is due to be released in Europe by Earache Records on May 17. Annihilator guitarist and mainman Jeff Waters discusses the artwork:” The new Annihilator CD cover art was, again, done by the great Gyula Havancsák www.hjules.com. He has done the art for the last fourAnnihilator studio releases, as well as the Ten Years In Hell DVD. “The concept was mine and came to me in a dream (more like a nightmare) and seems to be ‘Alice’ (Alison Hell), returned from the grave!

“Musically, the new CD ended up being far more aggressive than expected; thus, the new CD cover seems to compliment the songs perfectly.” Check out the cover art for Annihilator here.

Annihilator is set to feature ten tracks of heads-down, no-frills metal, and is sure to be a highlight in the band’s already-impressive catalogue. The official tracklisting is as follows:
