I’ve been an Annhilator fan since 1989, the day I purchased ALICE IN HELL. Throughout the many changes in both personal and style Jeff Waters has remained a constant source of inspiration and is to this day my favorite guitar player. With that said, I’ve been waiting a very long time to interview Jeff and my opportunity finally arrived with the release of Annihilator’s latest effort METAL. My expectations were high and they were easily met and then some with Jeff answering my questions with a lot of enthusiasm and honesty. I had a blast and I hope that you enjoy this interview as much as I do.

ANNIHILATOR – Jeff Waters

June 20th, 2007

JEFF WATERS

INTERVIEW AND LIVE PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

TRANSCRPTION BY NEIL BATTY

Canadian thrash band Annihilator is the lifework of guitarist Jeff Waters, who founded the band in Vancouver in 1984. It took almost five years and numerous line up changes before band released their 1989 debut, ALICE IN HELL, which was an unqualified triumph and epitomized the state of the art in terms of thinking man’s thrash metal in every aspect. Album was a success but more changes followed. Original singer Randy Rampage decided to leave and he was then replaced by Coburn Pharr who recorded album NEVER NEVERLAND with the band. Album was again very successful and band did a lot of touring across the world with such names as Judas Priest. Third album SET THE WORLD ON FIRE was released in 1993 with Wayne Darley being the only remaining member alongside with Jeff Waters himself. That album was a way different compared to older albums, it was much more oriented into pop/rock but it still did quite well during the time when grunge invasion was about to come. In 1994 band lost their record contract and they broke up but it wasn’t too long when Annihilator resurfaced with another line up. Band released a series of albums: KING OF THE KILL, REFRESH THE DEMON and REMAINS where Jeff handled vocal duties by himself while but Annihilator never again enjoyed anything similar to their original success � despite Water’s’ retreat to thrashier terrain. In 1999 band did another attempt to re-find their glory days when they re-united with their original singer Randy Rampage. Band released album CRITERIA FOR A BLACK WIDOW but reunion didn’t last too long until Randy was out again because of his drug and alcohol problems. It was time of another singer and then Joe Comeau stepped in. Annihilator released two high quality albums CARNIVAL DIABLOS and WAKING THE FURY with Joe before he was surprisingly out after the release of live album DOUBLE LIVE ANNILIATION in 2003. Canadian native Dave Padden replaced Comeau and he�s been in the band since then. Annihilator has lived though many ups and downs in their career but what�s most important, band has always survived and now they�re once again back with their 12�Th studio release called �Metal�. Band visited in Finland, for the first time in sixteen years, on last April while they were on tour as a special guest for U.S band. I had an opportunity to sit down with Jeff Waters in Helsinki before their show in House of Culture and here are the results of our lengthy discussion� ENJOY!

Annihilator, Trivium, Sanctity – May 8 2007 – Helsinki Finland

June 1st, 2007

The 8th of May 2007
House Of Culture
Helsinki Finland

Review & Pics by Arto Lehtinen

The metal gig series sponsored by The Headbanger’s Ball of The Finnish MTV continued when the hotter than hell name Trivium arrived at Finland with the legendary Annihilator and the newbie group Sanctity.  The gig was originally supposed to take a place in the prestigious Nosturi club, but due to excessive ticket sales and the massive success of trendy Trivium the whole package had to be taken to a bigger venue in Helsinki. The Nosturi club is a real idealistic asskicking place for all kinds of metal gigs, but The House Of Culture ain’t the most suitable venue for these kinds of events as the construction of the concert hall creates a terrible echo tormenting the ears and causing pretty distorted sound making the concert and listening experience more than unpleasant.
