Annihilator‘s history is chequered with disappearing/reappearing frontmen over the bands 17 albums and Jeff himself has now handled lead vocals on 4 of them.

Worship Metal casts it eye over a thrash legacy that has contributed to many all-time Thrash classics and ranks the 6 vocalists who have fronted the Canadian Thrashers over the years (Jeff Waters included).

6. Joe Comeau

Lead Vocals on Carnival Diablos (2001) & Waking The Fury (2002)

Joe Comeau is an accomplished  vocalist, his time as frontman with Liege Lord and as guitarist/backing vocalist with Overkill stands as testament to that, but his stint as frontman for Annihilator was not only short-lived, it was also ill-fitting.

On Carnival Diablos, something about Joe’s classic heavy metal style steered the band away from their technical thrash roots and in to solid but unspectacular hard tock territory.

This unnecessary diversion was corrected on the following years Waking The Fury – particularly on the ripping “Ultra-Motion” – an album that thrashed harder than most in 2002 but after only 3 years in the Annihilator fold, Joe upped sticks and eventually rejoined power-thrashers Liege Lord.
