Evildead annihilation of civilization full album 1989

Annihilation of Civilization is the debut album from Evildead, a thrash metal band originating from California, United States. It was released in September 1989 on Steamhammer Records, and was followed up by the EP, Rise Above, released some months later. It is the album that broke Evildead into the thrash metal mainstream, with single "Annihilation of Civilization", which featured a music video and it received airplay on MTV's Headbangers Ball.


This was the only Evildead album to feature Albert Gonzales on guitar, Mel Sánchez on bass (though he came back during their final years from 1993-1995 before returning full-time when they reunited in 2008) and Rob Alaniz on drums.

The track "F.C.I. / The Awakening" contains an audio excerpt from the horror film The Evil Dead, the same film the band took their name from.
