ANNIHILATOR Releases TRIPLE THREAT Three-Disc Collection via UDR12:47 AM
Jan. 27 marked the release of legendary Canadian thrash/heavy metal band ANNIHILATOR's "Triple Threat" - a three-disc collection of their music based in a trio of very different scenarios - out via UDR Music.
"Triple Threat" is available now in several formats, including DVD/2CDs, Blu-Ray/2CDs, a 2CD audio-only and digital download.
The second disc features 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.

Jeff Waters said, "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!For further information on ANNIHILATOR and "Triple Threat," please visit udr-music.com.
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.
ANNIHILATOR 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 one."
