Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Annihilist are a groove driven melodic death metal act that offers the shredding craft of European acts such as Soilwork and Arch Enemy with the all out assault of US acts such as Lamb of God and Unearth. The band are currently on tour across Australia and New Zealand while performing at festival events such as Blacken Open Air, Under The Southern Cross Fest, and Heavy AF Festival. Coinciding with the tour, the band will be reissuing their debut EP titled 'Vol.1' through Truth Inc Records.
"We are excited to be sharing our music with a fresh audience worldwide through the backing of Truth Inc Records. 'Vol.1' will give heavy music fans a heady dose of the Annihilist sound before we release our full length debut album later this year. The new album is a step up in almost every way. We’ve learned so many things since forming in 2014, especially how we can improve from the EP in terms of songwriting, production, and live sound. Our new material has made us feel like beginners at our own craft, having to relearn everything we thought we knew about our instruments.” - Josh Voce (Guitarist)

Established in 2014, Annihilist are a metal band from Melbourne, Australia, loaded with their self-released debut EP Vol. 1 from Nov 2015. With influences extending from all branches and styles of heavy music, Annihilist’s sound blurs the lines between European melodic death metal and the new wave of American heavy metal neatly tied together by their progressive style of songwriting. The Annihilist sound is said to be "an undeniably potent shot of metallic adrenaline which leaves a very strong, and very favourable, impression behind.” (NoCleanSinging.com).
Annihilist are currently playing shows throughout Australia in support of their Debut EP. They have performed in New South Wales, Victoria, & Tasmania so far, alongside many great Australian contemporaries such as Boris The Blade, Hollow World, Whoretopsy, Hadal Maw, & Orpheus Omega with plans to travel further abroad. Annihilist have released two professional music videos to date and are currently working on their second studio release. Annihilist’s showcase around Australia is an example of the bands aspirations to tour the country even more extensively in the near future. The band aims to take their music past the Australian borders in hopes to eventually be touring on a global scale.
