ANNIHILATOR / Alice in Hell (1989)

Amid the usual odes to death and wickedness that make up many thrash albums, Annihilator's début included songs about the crippling nature of childhood fears, self-destructive adult obsessions, clinical insanity and a song inspired by Edgar Allan Poe. It's fast, technical thrash with breaks and riffs that should please fans of the genre. There are a couple of filler tracks that stop it achieving a perfect score but even they entertain after a few quality beers. And how could you not love a band with a gruff vocalist named Randy Rampage?

Songs of Note: Crystal Ann; Alison Hell
