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.
