The band recruited vocalist Tony Stanziano to achieve their desired sound, and Annunaki was born. After demoing several tracks in early 2006, the material evolved simultaneously with the band. In a few short months, Annunaki had conjured a collection of brutal songs to be unleashed upon the masses. In June 2006, Sharing the stage with Metal Mike's Painmuseum, Annunaki made an impact immediately with their live debut.
Since then, Annunaki has shared the stage with the likes of Carnivore, Deicide, Nachtmystium, Anal Cunt, Lair of the Minotaur, among others. In late September 2006, Annunaki entered the studio to carve their creations in stone. Recorded with Eric Kvortek at Trax East Studios(God Forbid, Symphony X, Sinai Beach) and mastered at West-West Side Music with Alan Douches (Suffocation, Cannibal Corpse, Krisiun, Nile), the relentless aggression conjured and crafted over the last year has been compiled and dispersed among thirteen tracks. A vicious onslaught from start to finish, "Throne of the Annunaki" takes metal to every extreme. Annunaki shall continue on their path in 2007, leaving no boundary uncrossed.
