Jeff Waters has been tearing it up in Annihilator for as long as Hugh Platt has been alive. Suffice to say, after more than 25 years, he’s gotten pretty fucking good.
In the week we went to down to Earache Records’ office in London to interview Annihilator axeman, Jeff Waters, we’d been giving his band’s latest, self-titled album a fair few spins. Allegedly the album has more than 60 guitar solos on it – an average of more than 6 per track – but we never got round round to tallying them up ourselves. We were far too busy playing air guitar.
