Metal legend Jeff Waters: "Nothing has been able to stop Annihilator's metal machine. Nothing. With "Schizo Deluxe", Annihilator has regained the non-stop power, aggression and guitar-driven insanity it was known for, in the late 80's/mid-90's, yet still breaks new ground. David Padden (vocalist) takes on a slightly more refined style than on the last cd, streamlining his vocal versatility somewhat, in order to focus on pure attitude. Ottawa native Tony Chappelle (drummer) had some serious shoes to fill, those of drum god, Mike Mangini. However, I always give my fans the best and Tony proves that he is on par with anyone else in the business". Bass and all guitar duties were handled by Waters. "Aside from Padden and Chappelle's killer performances, "Schizo Deluxe" showcases some of my most challenging and creative guitar/bass playing. In the past few years, many musicians in both rock and metal have cited the influence of my music on their work. Despite not always attaining the same "superstar" status as many of their bands, I am honored to have had this impact. That being said, how many 80's metal bands have done 16+ years straight, of constantly putting out cds, touring, and remaining 100% true to what they do? Not many!" Most of the "Schizo Deluxe" recording sessions were done at Waters' Ottawa, Canada studios, with Waters engineering and producing. Mixing and mastering duties went to engineer Chris Coldrick. "Schizo Deluxe" is for my fans and all metal fans", adds Waters. "This is a full-on, flat-out ripper that will increase your heart-rate like a shot of adrenaline. No ballads. No lulls in the madness. The energy level does not subside. From the first track to the end: 100% PURE METAL". In "Schizo Deluxe", Waters and Co. have created their most energized offering to date by combining second-to-none musicianship, memorable performances and powerful song-writing. To find this kind of longevity, quality and authenticity in music today, you will have to look long and hard. Annihilator's "Schizo Deluxe" is due out November 14, 2005, through AFM Records.
