Kublai Khan were another of those one-shot thrash hopefuls of the 80s to feature the former member of a more successful band. A small amount of buzz, a single album, and then nothing. In this case it was Greg Handevidt, an early member of Megadeth, who performs both guitar and vocals on this release. Annihilation is not so bad though. It has that rough and rugged, dirty speed metal aesthetic which a lot of bands are emulating these days on principal alone. Death Breath" is a pretty exciting tune, you can hear a little Celtic Frost in the opening riff, then pure Bay Area-style speed.

My interest in Kublai Khan started when I traced one of Megadeth's earliest guitarists to it. His name was Greg Handevidt. He was the founding member of Kublai Khan as well as the singer and guitarist. I knew that Kublai had been formed for four years before breaking up and released but one album: Annihilation. The band itself is obviously very talented, with riffs that scream thrash metal, (close to that of Destruction) and solos very similar to Slayer or Voivod. The vocals are a mixture of James Hetfield (Metallica), Tom Araya (Slayer), and Steve Souza (Exodus) . When the album started, I was fairly impressed, but the impressiveness of the album continuously grew until it became certain that this band DEFINITELY deserved more recognition than they did. Period.
