Nu-Metal innovators Coal Chamber specialised in raw, brutal, down-tuned sound a la Pantera and White Zombie that was tinged by influences like goth, hip-hop, and hardcore. They scored a U.S. Gold album and Kerrang! Award for “Best International Newcomer” with their classic 1997 debut.

Canada's answer to Metallica? The Eddie Van Halen of thrash metal? Both these terms could have easily applied to Annihilator and it's mastermind, lead guitarist and songwriter Jeff Waters. Debut album 'Alice In Hell' remains a Thrash classic, while follow-up 'Never, Neverland' delivered Roadrunner's first UK Top 40 album.
