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. Annihilist are currently seeking representation for existing and future releases.
