Jeff Waters, the guitarist and leader of Canadian thrash metal pioneers ANNIHILATOR, has posted a seven-minute video in which he answers fan-submitted questions about his friendship with Dave Mustaine (MEGADETH, METALLICA), MEGADETH’s “Rust In Peace” record and being asked to join MEGADETH. You can watch it below.

ANNIHLATOR is currently working on its 14th studio release as well as a “special” recording that Waters describes as “a treat for the faithful ANNIHILATOR fans and a welcoming to our new fans.” The band is also in talks with labels about a record deal for Canada and the USA.

ANNIHILATOR’s self-titled album was released in Europe on May 17, 2010. The CD was made available in Europe via Earache Records, in Japan through Marquee and in Australia via Riot Entertainment. It was also released in the U.S. and Canada via iTunes and most all other digital/online outlets.
