Canuck legends ANNIHILATOR have announced a special club gig at The Brass Monkey in Ottawa, ON on April 18. The show will feature support from local metal act AGGRESSOR.

Come on down, if you can get in… this will be about as intimate as it gets and expect an early start and long set! Party at my house after.”
As an added bonus to the evening, guitarist Jeff Waters is offering up one of his signature Epiphone Flying V guitars to be won. All you need to do is buy a ticket to the show and you are automatically entered into the raffle.

DREAM THEATER

DRUMMER MIKE MANGINI

INTERVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

Mike Mangini is an American drummer, and the current drummer for the progressive metal band Dream Theater. Mangini joined band in 2011 after the departure of founding drummer Mike Portnoy. Later on that same year the band released its latest opus DRAMATIC TURN OF EVENTS. Mangini’s earlier playing credits include Annihilator, Extreme and Steve Vai among others. He’s also well known for his work as a session musician and lecturing for years at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Mangini has also written two books titled Rhythm Knowledge about his unique drumming techniques, a practice method for deconstructing and simplifying complex poly-rhythms and time signatures. Dream Theater opened their 2012 European leg of “Dramatic Tour of Events” from Helsinki in mid January. It was at this tour stop that we had a pleasure to sit down with Mr. Mangini and discuss the current state of Dream Theater and some older stuff as well. Read on!

First North America Annihilator Show in 18 years booked for Quebec City

April 28th, 2011
Annihilator

Annihilator

Capitale du Metal presents Canadian metal powerhouse Annihilator for the 2011 edition of the Festival d’Été de Québec (Quebec City International Summer Festival), on July 10th at the Imperial Theater. This is an exclusive for Canada this summer, a first for Quebec City and the first show in 18 years that Annihilator has played in North America. Despite the lengthy absence here, Annihilator has been a success around the globe since the band’s 1989’s debut release “Alice in Hell”. Since then, with 13 studio cd’s, millions of records sold and dozens of world tours under their belt, Annihilator are fired up to show metal heads in North America why Annihilator has earned a reputation of being one of the best live international acts out there today.

Here is what Annihilator’s mastermind Jeff Waters had to say about the announcement of the show:

Well it’s been a long, long time since Annihilator has played its home country Canada; and it’s about time!

It’s been 17 years since we have played here, despite releasing records and touring Europe and Asia every year for 22 years! I backed out of North American touring way back in 1994 as the metal scene essentially went underground until recently. I also ended up being a single father of a young son so I also decided to go where Annihilator was “wanted” (Europe/Asia) and spent my off-touring months at home, being a Dad and working in my studio.
Now that my kid is a teenager and the kind of metal we play seems back in full swing here in North America, it is time to get out there and rock… and what better place to return to rock than Canada’s metal province: Quebec! We will
hit the rest of Canada and the USA soon but, this summer, some metal fans will get what they have been threatening me for, for years: ANNIHILATOR’s RETURN TO CANADA!”

Moreover, metal fans will have the opportunity to experience another comeback as Montreal-based metal legends Sword will act as direct support, after nearly 20 years away from the spotlight. Fans have been demanding their return for many years, and it has now become a reality. However, much of the band members remained active in the musical scene during Sword’s two-decade hiatus.

The stage is set for a night to remember; and of the finest quality!

London can be the most unpredictable city in terms of weather conditions and mostly turns out to be quite a bad surprise, but we weren’t going to let the UK ruin this gig!

A Sad Note: The passing of former Annihilator drummer

December 7th, 2010

Guitarist Jeff Waters posted the below note to the official Annihilator page today:

“A few weeks ago (while I was touring in Europe), I got word that we lost a former member of Annihilator’s touring lineup, Dave Machander. He passed away from cancer.

Dave was a super nice guy. I met him under stressful circumstances. In 1996, we did a record called REFRESH THE DEMON. Randy Black was our drummer then and I had bought everyone’s plane tickets for our upcoming Refresh the Demon EUROPE tour 1996.

12 days BEFORE the tour weas supposed to start, I get a call from Randy telling me that, if I did not pay him dounle+ the money I was to pay him for the tour, that he would not come along and would join another Vancouver artist “Bif Naked” instead (as she apparently was offering more money). I told him that we could not afford this and that it is very, very wrong to hold us “hostage” like this. He ended up leaving for Bif Naked (which ended up lasting one tour and he was out anyway!) but, more importantly, Randy Black left us with NO DRUMMER, a cancelled flight that I did not get my money back for and a tour in 12 days!!!

12 days is wayyyy too short of a time to get someone to jump in and play an Annihilator set and I still had to hope I could find someone!!

Dave Davis, our long-time guitar player, suggested his friend Dave Machander and thought he could handdle the gig/pressure. I was not convinced but had no other option than to literally say “you are in”, before I even heard him play drums!

We rehearsed on Vancouver Island, near where both Dave’s lived. We had 6 rehearsals scheduled. Normally, for a drummer with us, headlining Europe, we would need 10 reherasals.

Many drummers play along with a “click”. That is a cowbell kind of sound that keeps a time/beat in the drummer’s earphones and lets him play close to perfect timing… it helps him zoom in and play tighter than without one. Well, Dave was not playing well to it. Turns out, he had never played to one before. I was in panic mode. So was everyone else. So by the 4th rehearsal of 6, I was ready to cancel. Almost. Then Dave Davis said “Jeff, why don’t we simply take Machander OFF the click and let him just “feel” the music”.

I said “Might as well try, Dave”.

We did. INSTANTLY, the guy played fantastic. Really good. Better than good. He then really only had 2 good rehersals with us and then got on the plane with us and kicked f…ing ass on that tour. The guy pulled through and stuck with it. Most guys would have quit after the first few rehearsals but he would not give up. And thanks to Dave Davis for the tour-saving suggestion!

Anyway, I only saw/knew Dave Machander on that one tour with us. He was a bio-chemist, if I have my info right. A very smart guy and seemed to be a very nice guy, too!

Send a thought out to him and his family. He was a good guy.

And grab a loved one and give them a hug,

Jeff Waters”

ANNIHILATOR – Vocalist Dave Padden

November 22nd, 2010

logo_annihilator.gif

Interview with vocalist Dave Padden

INTERVIEW BY ARTO LEHTINEN AND MARKO SYRJÄLÄ

Long time Canadian thrash metal icons, Annihilator, are known for being the soul and mind of the guitar wizard Jeff Waters who has navigated the band throughout the years. However, the guitarist/vocalist Dave Padden has become an essential part of the Annihilator camp within these past seven – eight years. Annihilator has visited Finland a couple of times before as a support for Judas Priest in 1991 and Trivium a few years back. It was clearly time for them to have the headliner slot here. The Tavastia club was entirely packed when Waters and company got on the stage. Before the four piece thrashers stormed onto the stage to wake the fury, we had the privilege of having a chat with the vocalist of Annihilator Dave Padden who talked about the on-going tour, the re-issued albums, and several other interesting issues about the mighty Annihilator!

ANNIHILATOR ESCAPES FIRE AT NOTTINGHAM VENUE

November 18th, 2010

Canadian melodic thrash metal pioneers ANNIHILATOR escaped a large fire on Wednesday night, shortly after playing to a packed house in Nottingham, England whilst on their European headlining tour.

ANNIHILATOR were packing up their gear from the Rescue Rooms venue in Nottingham city centre at around 1:00am when a large fire broke out next door.  1,400 people were evacuated from the venue as well as others from surrounding buildings.  No one was injured in the incident.

Emergency services were called to the scene and were still putting the fire out on Thursday afternoon, causing significant disruption to the city’s transport services.  Some of ANNIHILATOR’s equipment was still in the venue at the time of the fire and the band and its crew were unable to retrieve it until Thursday.

ANNIHILATOR: Live at Club Tavastia, Helsinki

November 7th, 2010

cover1.jpg

ANNIHILATOR

THE 22nd of OCTOBER

 CLUB TAVASTIA, HELSINKI

FINLAND 

REVIEW BY ARTO LEHTINEN AND MARKO SYRJÄLÄ

The long running Canadian thrash metal veteran Annihilator have visited Finland a couple of times before. Their first visit happened back in 1991 as support for Judas Priest and Pantera, who were largely still an unknown act at that time. Their second visit was a couple of years ago when the band supported Trivium at the sold out The House of Culture. Therefore, it was about time for Jeff Waters and company to have a headlining show of their own. The timing was nothing but perfect when over 600 metalheads crawled to the show on a Friday night.
