Formed in 1984, Canadian thrash metal band Annihilator, who features Jeff Waters & Aaron Homma on guitar, Fabio Alessandrini on drums and Rich Hinks on bass, has just released a new official music video Armed To The Teeth. The track is taken from the band’s upcoming album Ballistic, Sadistic, which will be released on January 24th, 2020, via Silver Lining Music.

The band’s brain Jeff Waters is happy to release the track. You can read what he said about the track below.

“Armed To The Teeth’ is simply about how one should never judge a book by its cover. If you poke a bear with a stick, abuse or bully someone, or treat a living creature with disrespect, be prepared that it might turn around and retaliate, far beyond what you ever thought possible. The retaliation could be ballistic and sadistic. Whether it’s about a music industry jerk bullying an artist or about a kid being bullied on the way home from school, karma will catch up to you and bite you in the face. Someday.

Although this is a very heavy and aggressive song, we chose to represent the subject by clips of a teen getting bullied; a serious, common, and relevant subject to touch on… and we thought it more appealing than showing this 53-year-old musician taking shit from someone in the music biz! Enjoy the metal.”
