ANNIHILATED was brought into existence by guitarists Eric Matranga and Robert Fimbres in 2008, shortly after the break up of the L.A. death metal band Excretion. They began to conceive songs with a sense of purpose as an outlet for their crucial  message to
promote realistic thinking and freely question what's being told to us through the press and new media outlets.

In 2012, drummer Scott Fuller (Abysmal Dawn) joined the group with the same values and ideologies. Helping to succeed with their musical purpose, he added a new dimension of percussive essence and syncopation to the music. Shortly after, they enlisted Martin Rygiel (ex-DECAPITATED) to lay down the bass tracks on their EP, "Injected". Martin's thunderous bass attacks and vast knowledge of music added to the assault and solid foundation the group was hoping for. ANNIHILATED is here to exploit the monstrosities of our world, give realistic views of deceit the way it needs to be told, in a way that is very loud, very powerfully, and in your fucking face. They hope to spread a message to everyone out there so we can take off our shackles and start to live again.

The band self-released their EP "Injected" in 2012, recorded at John Haddad's Trench Studio's in Corona, California by the bands own Scott Fuller, who also directed the production duties. The EP offers the fans a taste of what’s to come with 6 face melting tracks of Extreme Death Metal. Also featuring guest vocals by Charles Elliott (Abysmal Dawn, Bereft) and a special guitar solo by Fancesco Artusato (All Shall Perish, Fancesco Artusato Project). The band also released a crushing music video for the title track "Injected". The Video was shot and refined by Matt Zane (Society1, Wayne Static, Orgy) and has nearly 4600 scene cuts in just 4 minutes with critics tagging it as "Seizure Inducing".

2013 will see ANNIHILATED writing for their newest album, the band signed a multi-album deal with Unique Leader Records. A statement from the bands drummer Scott Fuller "We are psyched to be a part of the Unique Leader Family, with such a notable roster of Brutal Death Metal bands and awesome releases, we feel right at home!" The bands new Cd is yet to have a name, will see an anticipated early 2014 release.

The surface of this bands message: “Open your eyes before we all get ANNIHILATED“.
