List Rules This list includes studio albums only, so if you add an album make sure it's a proper studio release.

This Annihilator discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Annihilator albums can be found at the top of the list. Since they’re such an influential band, let’s rank the best Annihilator albums, with the help of your votes. Formed in 1984 in Canada, Annihilator almost immediately became leaders of the thrash metal scene, most notably with Set the World on Fire (1993) and King of the Kill (1994). They soon became the highest-selling heavy metal group from Canada in Canadian history.

To make it easy for you, we haven't included Annihilator singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest Annihilator album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite Annihilator album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.

This list includes albums from Annihilator's catalog including everything from Alice in Hell (1989) to For the Demented (2017). This list of popular Annihilator CDs has been voted on by music fans around the world, so the order of this list isn't just one person's opinion.
