Legendary Canadian thrash/heavy metal masters ANNIHILATOR recently announced the upcoming release of Triple Threat - a three-disc collection of their music based in a trio of very different scenarios - out January 27, 2017 via UDR Music. Today, the band revealed an acoustic video for their classic "Sounds Good To Me", the very first track to be released from disc one of the set, Un-Plugged: The Watersound Studios Sessions. Take a listen and watch the video now on KNAC.COM right HERE.

Triple Threat pre-orders are available now via the retailers below. Triple Threat is available in several formats, including DVD/2CDs, Blu-Ray/2CDs, a 2CD audio-only and digital download.

The main disc of Triple Threat comprises a set of ANNIHILATOR's classics performed acoustically, with band leader/guitarist/songwriter and vocalist Jeff Waters bringing together band members Aaron Homma and Rich Hinks, Vancouver, BC drummer and friend Marc LaFrance, plus Ottawa session player Pat Robillard. Recorded and mixed by Waters, this quintet recorded everything live, off the floor and in single takes at Watersound Studios in Dunrobin, Canada during late May and early June 2016, giving Waters one of the most challenging, satisfying and perhaps 'electric' creative moments in his career.

The second disc will feature ANNIHILATOR's vicious set from the 2016 BANG YOUR HEAD Festival, a set which illustrates the very best of what ANNIHILATOR is known for - tight, sharp, technically-excellent and melodic thrash metal music. It will also contain some exclusive inside-ANNIHILATOR off-stage perspective, which captures further elements, flavors and detail of the band which fans will flip over.

Unplugged: The Watersound Studios Sessions:

  • "Sounds Good To Me"
  • "Bad Child"
  • "Innnocent Eyes"
  • "Snake In The Grass"

  • "Never, Neverland"
  • "Bliss"
  • "Second To None"
  • "Refresh The Demon"

  • Chapter I - Annihilator Un-Plugged: The Watersound Studios Sessions (62 mins)
  • Chapter II - Annihilator Live at the BANG YOUR HEAD Festival (45 mins)
  • Chapter III - ANNIHILATOR: Summer Mini-Documentary 2016 (45 mins)
Plus Bonus Video Chapters: "Jeff's Commentary On The Acoustic Songs" and "Jeff Answers Fan Questions"

Jeff Waters states, "This was one of the coolest things I have done in my long career. Having five people in a room, from all different backgrounds and talents, coming together to play songs from the past, and to try to sound like we are one but totally live and with feeling. This was one of the biggest challenges that ANNIHILATOR has faced, musically, but what impressed me the most was how you can hear all the individual styles each player has and how we were able to glue the playing and feel together. Done all in one take and with all the musical blemishes and imperfections that I would never normally let slide!

This set covers some of the melodic songs, one even from 1984 (when a few of these guys were not even born!) and I just had to do this once in my life... to challenge myself and maybe show some others that it's not always just about the metal and the thrash! Rock n' roll and ballads are found everywhere in heavy metal.

ANNIHILATOR are made up of a helluva lot of styles, mixed into one. That's exactly what kind of musicians I put together for this set - a mixed bag of rockers and metalheads - and they made our legacy proud! Enjoy... we sure love this one."
