Chemical Annihilation  


Chemical Annihilation hailed from the Northwest and recorded two demos in 1989, one of which was called Why Die? and both of which comprise the 2009 CD re-release, also named Why Die?. The difference between the two demos is quite noticeable here, as the other demo (earlier, self-titled) suffers both from a poor production (even by demo standards) as well as the songs being a bit directionless. The Why Die? songs, on the other hand, show a well-developed thrash style that makes one wonder why they didn't sign with someone and do a complete album right then and there. As it stands, the CD release makes for a fine addition to any 80's thrash metal collection.
