With Annihilator's new album "Waking The Fury", you know what you are going to get...a solid thrashy CD that is easy to get accustomed to. Joe Comeau's vocals have never sounded meaner. The album begins and ends with two solid speed metal songs. In my opinion, with this album, this puts Jeff Waters on superstar status as far as metal guitarists go. Just a great slab 'o' metal here and a recommended buy.

What a GREAT friggin'album! I don't even mind that I had to buy it on import 'cos it hasn't been released in the US... "Ritual" and "Nothing To Me" are great songs and Jeff Waters is one of the greatest thrash guitar players in the game. Annihilator's made some good CDs, and some bad ones, but this is a good one. They're on a roll again!

Carnival Diablos and Waking the Fury r00000le !!!!!!!!! These two albums make one hell of a team.

"Waking the Fury" is appropriately titled as this disc simply shreds from beginning to end. As with the band's recent discs there are several hints of Judas Priest and Slayer. Jeff Water's guitar crunch of the past has been changed to a fuzzier tone, giving the disc a slightly thinner sound. Despite this minor flaw, W.T.F. is outstanding. There are only a handful of bands still doing this style of thrash metal, and few that do it this good, making Annihilator the kings of the scene.

Oh god this is probabaly one of the most awesome bands ever BUY ALL THERE ALBUMS!!!

Well i am a young metal head im only 17 and growing up in the so called meal head day. of slipknot corn disturb dope. well i hate all them dont see nothing good about them. But aniihilator waken the fury is what it says. for they begin to start like a speed/thrash metal sound right in the beging 1,2,5 are the best

A great CD! I must confess I was slightly put-off at first by the buzzy guitar tones, but once I got use to this, the brilliance of the songwriting shown through. Megadeth and Metallica wish they could put out an album this good! 9/10

From: OverKill Date: September 17, 2005 at 8:15
It would be cool to see their following releases, "Double Live Annihilation" and "All For You", added here. And there's a new one on the way just a couple of months from now. With SO many great releases featuring so many killer tunes, and despite being essentially the Jeff Waters Show, Annihilator takes the title of (IMO)Best Band EVER! (...Big talk I know, but if I had to pick just one...)

Great!!!...8 outta 10 songs of this album are in my metal book straight away!!!(1,2,3,4,5,7,8 & 10)...the limited edition brings two bonus tracks("Shallow Grave" live and "Nothing To Me" radio edit)...a dope album!!!...88/100
