REVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA

Annihilator is a Canadian thrash metal band that was formed in 1984 by guitarist/vocalist Jeff Waters. The band has sold over two million albums worldwide. Their debut album, ALICE IN HELL, is considered to be one of true classics of the thrash metal genre and Waters’ “extraordinary guitar playing skills” are widely recognized. Since formation, Annihilator has released thirteen studio albums and gone through many line-up changes. The band now consists of two official members, with Waters and rhythm guitarist/vocalist Dave Padden, who joined band ranks in 2003. The line-up is now completed with touring bassist Alberto Campuzano and drummer Mike Harshaw who also performed on the band’s latest album FEAST. Annihilator has enjoyed a strong upswing in Europe during the last few years. FEAST is their best-selling album since the late 80’s glory days and Annihilator concerts have been mainly sold out. Tonight’s show in Helsinki made no exception when over 600 metalheads find their way to witness Canadian’s finest performing in Club Nosturi. Welcome to the show!

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

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.
