And Nuclear Assault. Fair play to the man, I'm interested as to how it will sound. Personally though, I've never liked Annihilator and can't see why there's ever been any hype for them but to each their own and the like. It would have been nice to see a entrix or Onslaught cover, just to remind everyone that yes there was some British thrash! For my money Onslaught's "The Force" should be regarded as a thrash metal classic too.

Now playing: Kreator- Voices Of The Dead
