Best Annihilator Songs
The Top Ten
Alison Hell is a masterpiece. During that era thrash metal was nearly identical with punk and this album drew the line between them. Also its worth mentioning that Megadeth was influenced by this album while recording Rust in Peace. Complex riffs show Jeff Waters' technicality and it's probably one of the most progressive thrash metal song. The tone of the bass in the intro is amazing, followed by the Iron Maidenish riff then a groovy and a fast riff then the main riff. It feels like it's a compressed progressive metal song.
Instantly memorable song. Heard it and it's been in my head ever since. - IronSabbathPriest
Aalison Hell Best Thrash Vocal Performance
Thrash metal at its best - fast, heavy, technical. - Metal_Treasure
This used to be at #1 and should still be
A riff fest. Great solo. Maybe it's their most technical song and one of their fastest. The guitar work is technically sophisticated and insanely good.
I think this masterpiece is sorta underrated even by the Annihilator's fans because it's almost instrumental and it's structure is unusual. - Metal_Treasure
King of the Kill is the most catchy song by Annihilator. You understand that it's going to be a kickass song as soon as you hear the intro. I was listening to this song with a friend of mine who doesn't even know what thrash metal is and after 5 minutes I could hear him singing "Don't try to run there's no way to survive." The only downside of this song is that it's too short. By the way I would recommend the Feast Deluxe Re-recorded version, in my opinion Dave is much better on vocals.
The song starts with a clean tone and then changes key and tone. The awesome groovy riff in the beginning compels you to listen the whole song. Followed by one of the best riffs of all time in the chorus. If you play guitar, I highly recommend learning the chorus riff, I guarantee you'll play it over and over again and headbang until you get dizzy. After the second chorus is the interlude which resembles a Dream Theater song with it's odd time signatures and melody. In the end, the climax of the song. The drums become 2 times faster, your heart beats faster and then you hear Aaron Randall scream "FIRE! " That's when you feel like punching anyone near you in the face.
Love the guitar solo in this song! - Grundapants
Welcome To Your Death has one of the best guitar tones I've ever heard. The riffs are awesome and you will find yourself singing along to the chorus the first time you hear it. A song where Jeff Waters shows his talent accompanied by Randy Rampage's awesome gritty vocals.
The guitar solo in this is one of the best I've ever heard, listen to the sample and you'll know what I mean - wolphert
Jeff Waters is definitely a genius, especially on what he does in choruses. This song is another one with a great chorus. The screams, "Panic! " really get you in the mood and the riff melts your face. Everything is great in this song, the verse, the chorus, guitar solo. It's a shame that they don't perform this song live as much as Alison Hell or Set the World on Fire.
It just gets my head froze.
One of their fastest and heaviest songs. Awesome. Love the drums, too. - Metal_Treasure
Great riff and solo. - Metal_Treasure
Lots of great riffs are concentrated in the first 2 minutes that you'll not be able to decide when you should headbang. Then you'll find yourself again listening to an awesome song.
These riffs are awesome live! - Metal_Treasure
Drum intro/outro - one of the best in metal, if not the best. Mike Mangini was really diabolic here. - Metal_Treasure
Most underrated song by annihilator
CITY OF ICE -------- epic song of epic proportions
Your owned fluff. I'm CORNIER THAN YOU.
THIS SONG CHANGED MY LIFE I WAS IN A DARK PLACE UNTIL I HEARD JEFF WATERS VOICE I RAISED MYSELF UP AND THOUGHT THOSE DEMONS.
This song is literally a story narrated by a girl who was locked in his room by his grandmother. The music fits the lyrics perfectly. It's as if this was originally a story, but Jeff Waters enhanced the narration by his magic. I would feel like giving spoilers If I told you more about the song, so go listen it right now!
Absolutely dig this song along with Alison Hell and the Trand, Annihilator has some really underrated tracks that you need to unearth
