5.0 out of 5 stars PREPARE TO BE ANNIHILATED! THRASH METAL AT ITS VERY BEST!, 14 Jan 2003
This review is from: Waking The Fury (Audio CD)
It is very difficult to mention Annihilator without mentioning the first rate 'alice in hell' and 'never never land' in the same sentence(and my personal favourite 'Criteria for a black widow'). Since the halcyon days of thrash these classics set the standard and haven't really been lived up to ever since.
Waking the fury in my opinion has re-written the book on thrash metal. By no means have Annihilator returned to the early thrash sound, but have taken the best parts of Nu-metal i.e, aggression, detuned guitars (not winging or the over use of expletives) and have added their very own thrash ingredients.
Waters guitar playing seems to improve on every album made and the riffs on this cd are of no exception, these are some of the heaviest and best riffs to be found anywhere within the metal genre, as well as some widdly diddly, wicked lead solos. Como's vocals are raw, crisp and extremely aggressive and could be likened to a number of heavy metal/rock vocalists. The musicianship it tight, focused and very professional.
Like many album reviews on amazon, there aren't many biased or neutral opinions (maybe i am guilty of this too!)But what I can say? this band deserved to be heard, maybe they aren't a major force in metal, but they are up there with the very best in metal and 'Waking the Fury' must be heard, without a shadow of a doubt!
