Annihilator's "Set The World On Fire" To Be Re-Released

On "Set The World On Fire," Annihilator's third studio album from 1993, the band leaves some of the thrashier elements from their two first albums behind by focusing more on melodies. With the three octave range of Aaron Randal's voice and the sheer complexity of Jeff Waters' riffs they manage to create some of the most beautiful melodies.

Metal Mind Productions presents the re-release of "Set The World On Fire." The new edition of the album includes two bonus tracks plus an additional CD with a promotional video for "Set the World on Fire," video material featuring Jeff Waters speaking about the process of writing and recording "Set the World on Fire," touring, making of the "Set the World on Fire" video and more. The bonus CD also includes additional video and audio material: live clips, interviews, home video recordings and some live Annihilator videos from 1989. This digipak edition is limited to 2000 copies, digitally remastered using a 24-Bit process, and released on a golden disc.

The release date is set up for January 19th in Europe and March 10th in the USA (via MVD).

Extremely underrated band. This album is killer. But I still liked Never, Neverland more.

Never heard this album, for me it's a split between AIH and NNL. And yes Shredder, Exumer rule with a heavy hand.

I'm not a big fan of this album, they should reissue Alice In Hell. That one is a classic
