(Andy Synn reviews the debut EP of Australia’s Annihilist.)
Never underestimate the value of good album art. After all, first impressions DO count.
For every cheesy cgi monstrosity, for every uninspired and multi-hued “cosmic” abortion, for every generic “war is bad” post-apocalypse or totally brutal “I’ve never been consensually touched by a woman” guts-n-gore album cover, there’s something far more interesting and eye-catching out there, something that stands out from the pack and practically yells “check this out!”
Such is the case with Australian metallurgists Annihilist and their debut EP Vol. 1.
