To keep it short, Annihilator's Remains is another record showing a darker side of a veteran group in the nineties. This is basically Annihilator's equivalent to Iron Maiden's The X Factor, Judas Priest's Jugulator or Voivod's Phobos. I loved all these three albums because of their direct, gloomy and uncompromising atmosphere and it's the same case here. His lead work is half-assed at best, minus the two good songs.

Album (Studio full-length). Jeff Waters : Vocals, Guitars & Bass. 체적으로 분위기가 부드럽고, annihilator만의 스타일도 사라져버린 앨범. 기억에 남는 트랙도 없고, 기억하고 싶은 트랙도 없다. Rangel (70/100).

Annihilator - Remains (1997). This is the closest to a solo album Jeff Waters ever accomplished to date with Annihilator. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it has been and always has been his band, which is why I like it, one vision, like Iced Earth. What makes it a solo album is just that, he is the only musician to appear on the album. He played every instrument (except for John Bates who played some guitar parts on No Love, and Dave Steele who sang a little on No Love and Wind ) and the drums with a drum machine.

Although marketed as an Annihilator album, REMAINS is actually a full fledged solo album by band founder Jeff Waters. And while it’s true that both KING OF THE KILL and REFRESH THE DEMON were also largely created by Waters with minimal help from other musicians, Waters replaced drummer Randy Black with a drum machine for this album! Aside from minor contributions to two songs by John Bates & Dave Steele, everything you hear on this album is Jeff. What he’s accomplished here is actually quite admirable and should be viewed for what it is – a solo album done almost COMPLETELY solo. Jeff takes this opportunity to experiment with his songwriting choices, but really doesn’t veer all that far from his signature sound. Tracks like “Tricks And Traps” and the incredibly fast guitar riffing of “Reaction” are good examples of the old Annihilator sound. The thrashing “Never” refreshingly takes skinheads and racists to task for their ignorant ideologies. “Wind” is nice melodic track that is a better example of Jeff’s experimentation outside of his usual parameters. The ballad “It’s You” is placed at the very end of the record and is probably the biggest left turn stylistically.While REMAINS has seemingly been ignored by some Annihilator fans, it does deserve a listen or two before rendering judgment. I believe it would have been more interesting record had Jeff been a bit more willing to work a little more outside his comfort zone.Highlights: "Wind", "Tricks And Traps" & "Reaction".

Industrial Funk/Grunge? Seems incredible, but that’s precisely the style Jeff Waters employed on his next Annihilator album Human Remains. As predictable, it’s an highly repetitive album with plenty of electronic sounds and detuning. In the second side, Jeff tries to repair the damage making a few thrashers and conventional ballads, but it isn’t enough. The short title track seems produced as a malfunctioning thrasher, with rawer and deeper guitar sound, and may be considered easily the only highlight here. The rest would sound better in the hands of another musician… Trent Reznor and Al Jourgensen included.Highlights: “Human Remains”, “Tricks and Traps”.
