In the middle of recording of the album Metal, Waters was invited to an American record company's party where he was surprised that so many musicians knew his Annihilator work very well. Encouraged by such unexpected support and after talks with long-time Annihilator fans from such bands as Trivium, Children Of Bodom, Lamb Of God, In Flames, Arch Enemy and others, Waters asked if they could play/sing on some tracks from the new Annihilator CD - which they did.
