Personal information

Born on: 13.02.1976

David James Padden (born February 13, 1976), is the vocalist for Canadian thrash metal band Annihilator. He currently also plays rhythm guitar for the band - all studio guitars had previously been played by the band leader Jeff Waters for some years, but after Padden performed in a dual role on tour he eventually became the rhythm player on a full time basis.

Dave is now using Explorer model guitars made by Ran Guitars at Annihilator live events, and it is assumed that he will record with these same guitars as well.

In 2006 Dave co-founded the industrial thrash metal band Silent Strain, although little is known about the current status of the band. He will perform only as the vocalist in this band.
