    Canada’s ANNIHILATOR is the lifework of guitarist Jeff Waters. Founded in 1984, the band took the metal scene by storm with their debut 1989 release “Alice In Hell”, upped the ante with 1990’s “Never, Neverland” and has continued a non-stop career-pattern of releasing records and touring with many of the biggest bands in the metal genre (mostly all outside North America), ever since; cementing ANNIHILATOR as the biggest-selling metal act in Canada’s history.

    After 18 months of touring for the band’s previous cd “Suicide Society” (nominated for a Juno), the band is currently finishing up their 16th studio cd and is getting ready to headline the mighty WACKEN OPEN AIR Festival in Germany.

    HOWEVER, ANNIHILATOR has just announced its first Canadian tour since 1993, taking place the month of June 2017; big news for Canadian metal fans, both young and “older”.

    Support on this tour comes from MASON (Australia) who was ANNIHILATOR’s support in Europe last year & from Canada’s thrashers MUTANK who won the acclaimed Wacken Battle worldwide contest in 2014.

    The band’s founder, Jeff Waters (and guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, producer, engineer, mix engineer, mastering engineer, manager…etc…) was asked how it feels to be “back” touring his own country:

    “I have always enjoyed flying the flag for one of the nicest countries and people in the world, desptie having very little support from the industry here to play and release cd’s in Canada. It sure is an honor to be nominated for a Juno, after all these years, and to have the opportunity to tour this great and metal land! It will be some of our best-ever shows this summer, we look forward to meeting the metal fans and to show them what the rest of the world has seen us do every year for decades. It’s about time, eh?!"

    Annihilator has given the metal world a sound that is one of the clearest, most-tasteful mixtures of huge, metal riffs with the idea of the perfect song and some legendary solo shredding as the icing on the cake. Jeff and ANNIHILATOR have been a major influence on countless well-known metal acts and musicians around the world. In fact, countless and successful non-metal acts & musicians cite Waters and Co. as an influence in their careers.

    Based in Melbourne, Australia, thrash metal band Mason delivers commanding performances throughout the national and international metal scene. Drawing influence from the Big Four and the Bay Area, Mason encapsulates the 80s thrash sound mixed with fast tempos and a dominating rhythm section. The band continue to crush audiences across the globe with their driving force and energetic stage presence, creating a powerful fan base.

    In 2011 Mason released their self titled EP, followed by their debut album ‘Warhead’ in 2013 which features 10 tracks including guest guitarist Jeff Loomis from Arch Enemy, Nevermore, and various solo albums. The band proceeded with national tours of Australia including support slots with Havok and Accept, then shortly after supported Revocation to kick off the first show of their highly successful 2014 Asian tour, leaving audiences wanting more.

    Not sparing a minute, Mason jumped straight back into the studio to record their second release ‘Unmerciful’, released in 2016. ‘Unmerciful’ is the perfect follow up, showcasing the band’s ability to fuse fast, aggressive metal and melodic guitar work that captivate and reinforce Mason’s stronghold on a global level.
