Annihilated Streaming New Album's Title Track

The California-based extreme death metal perpetrators in Annihilated - featuring current and former members of Abysmal Dawn, Grotesque, Excretion, and Arkaik -- will spread their sonic sickness across the lands this October 28th with the release of debut full-length, "XIII Steps To Ruination," via Unique Leader Records.

"XIII Steps To Ruination" was produced by drummer Scott Fuller (Abysmal Dawn) and boasts eleven pounding, methodically-crafted tales of torment bedecked in hailstorm riff sequences, homicidal blasts, maniacal vocal onslaughts, and strategically composed percussive syncopation all fueled, conceptually, by political/corporate disgust and societal revulsion.

As an added bonus, the album features guest appearances by Sven De Caluwe (Aborted), Monte Pittman (Prong), Peter Truax (Vesterian, Eyes Of Fire) and Eric Stobel (Plaguereaper, P.O.R.).

Comments drummer Scott Fuller of Annihilated's union with Unique Leader: "We are psyched to be a part of the Unique Leader family. With such a notable roster of brutal death metal bands and awesome releases, we feel right at home."

Annihilated Signs With Unique Leader

California's Annihilated has signed a record deal with Unique Leader Records. The label issued the following statement about the signing:

"We are pleased to announce that LA based death metal outfit Annihilated has joined the Unique Leader roster.

"Annihilated was formed in 2008 founded by guitarist's Eric Matranga and Robert Fimbres; shortly after disbanding from the L.A. Death Metal band 'Excretion.' They began to create songs with a sense of purpose to outlet their vital message to promote rational thinking and to freely question what’s being told to us through the associated press and new media outlets. In 2012, drummer Scott Fuller (Abysmal Dawn) joined the group with the same values and ideologies. Helping to succeed their musical purpose, he added a new dimension of percussive flavor and syncopation to the music.

"Shortly after, they recruited (Ex-Decapitated) bassist Martin Rygiel to lay down bass tracks on their EP 'Injected.' Martin's thunderous bass attacks and vast knowledge of music added the aggression and solid foundation the group was hoping for. The band self-released their EP 'Injected' in 2012, recorded at John Haddad's Trench Studio's in Corona, CA by the bands own Scott Fuller, who also handled the production duties. More...
