Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating 8.5/10
It still seems peculiar that almost 30 years after Annihilator burst on to the scene with their tremendous debut album Alice In Hell, that the Canadian thrash metal band still live in the shadows of many of their American cousins, that despite the time spent with different ideas, charged atmospheres and sometimes, to be fair, varied results, they still seem to be placed inside a separate category to others, that the powers that decide such things are happy to place Jeff Waters and the band into the realms of the often overlooked and forgotten.
Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * *
Time moves on and the brilliance of a band that came to the forefront of their country’s contribution to the Heavy Metal/Thrash genre seems to have finally come to a stuttering halt and whilst not completely disintegrating into fragments just yet, the signs are ominously there. For Annihilator and Jeff Waters in particular, the premiere of Canadian Metal, the band that bought out some illuminating and defining classics in their time, have bought out their 14th studio album, Feast, and it is regretfully anything but.
