For a band that's been around so long and had as many ups and downs as Annihilator, a live album can be a risky proposition. And while the set list on Double Live Annihilation might not be the strongest the band could've picked, the sound quality alone more than makes up for it. With just the right blend of live guitar snarl, pounding drums, and crowd insanity, this is the standard that live metal albums should seek to emulate, providing listeners with an experience that has all the vitality of a live set and the fidelity of a studio record. ~ Gregory Heaney
