Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
For the Demented, the sixteenth full-length slab from thrash/heavy metal legends Annihilator, is certainly one of their most complete and definitive statements to date. Mastermind Jeff Waters felt that 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."
Waters adds, "Bottom line, For The Demented captures some feel from Annihilator's 1985-87 demos mixed with the first four Annihilator records. Back to the thrash-meets-melody but with some pure Waters guitar riffing, up-graded lead guitar shredding and vocals back to the demo-days meets the King of The Kill record. Lyrically, I placed a theme on the record: the human mind and all of its glory, complexity, diversity, weaknesses and insanity! Pretty much the craziness of the music is matched by the lyrics. I think metal fans are going to hear much of what they have been waiting for from Annihilator."
