Annihilator – “Feast – Special Limited Edition” CD/ DVD (UDR Music)
If you missed Annihilator’s latest offering “Feast” whether in the standard CD format or the deluxe ECO-book version featuring re-recordings of 15 of the band’s most well-known songs prior to current vocalist Dave Padden joining, then look no farther. This Special Limited Edition contains all of the above plus a new DVD from the band’s Wacken Open Air set last year featuring yet another 11 songs including ‘No Way Out’, ‘King Of The Kill’ and ‘Alison Hell’ as the band charge through a blistering set creating the perfect ice breaker on the first day of this world renowned festival. Filmed with multi angle cameras providing plenty of shots of all the band members as well as their rabid crowd it’s damn near the perfect capture of this Canadian band live for those who’ve never seen ’em and an excellent reminder for those who have but can’t remember a damn thing for days after ha ha! With a different 3D cover featuring another zombified take on Spanish model and presenter Pilar Rubio this bumper package – including a photo crammed booklet and videos of ‘No Way Out’ – is an absolute must for the exclusive DVD in itself given their last live film was at Masters Of Rock in 2009 but moreover, it vividly captures the intensity of Annihilator at their shredding best live which is as good as being there in person!
