ANNIHILATOR will release their highly-anticipated 16th studio album, For The Demented, on November 3, 2017 via Neverland Music/Silver Lining Music. The album will be available in a Limited Edition Digipack with Lenticular cover, a jewel-case CD, a 12″ 180gms coloured vinyl in gatefold and digital download. Pre-order now here.
ANNIHILATOR has revealed a second new single, “One to Kill”. Listen to the aggressive, pummelling thrash track now via a new lyric video.
Guitarist and vocalist Jeff Waters says, “‘One To Kill’ is about an abusive relationship but the victim finally got out. The abuser had to face a court, was subsequently charged and paid a price. Good. Abuse of women and children is terrible but it also happens, often, to men.”
ANNIHILATOR mastermind Jeff Waters felt that with For The Demented, it was time to analyze what fans had been telling him over the years. “It was time to sit down and figure out “why” ANNIHILATOR‘s early “thrash-meets-melodic” caught the ears of so many and to try to sweep the “fan” part of my writing/playing/singing out the door and welcome back the mostly-original Waters writing that was to be the first four ANNIHILATOR albums… Bottom line, For The Demented captures some feel from ANNIHILATOR‘s 1985-87 demos mixed with the first four ANNIHILATOR records… I think metal fans are going to hear much of what they have been waiting for from ANNIHILATOR.”
