Heavy metal/thrash metal legends ANNIHILATOR today debut the shredding new lyric video for “Dressed Up For Evil.” The latest single comes by way of the band’s seventeenth studio album, Ballistic, Sadistic, set for release January 24th via Silver Lining Music.
Issues founding guitarist, vocalist, producer, and principal songwriter Jeff Waters of the track, “Evil in the guise of a man; that’s how I would describe the theme in this one. People who have no good in them. Destroying all in their way with abuse, lies, and negativity. Generally, just being a nasty human being and ruining lives in the name of money; thinking that it makes them special. It just makes them evil and a waste of life. Musically-speaking, this one is as old-school ANNIHILATOR metal as it gets. It’s obvious that the vibe in this tune reminds us of the early days of the band; even extending back to the demo days from ’84-’88. A highlight for me in this song is the legendary voice of Raven’s John Gallagher on backing vocals with Durham’s Kat Shevil Gillham (Winds Of Genocide). An honor to have John on this record and his voice helps make this song a killer. Oh, and lots of shred guitar, as some have been demanding for a while! We hope you like this one… we do!”

“This is the best ANNIHILATOR album in years; this is the best thrash album that 2020 is likely to produce…” — Metal Observer
“Something really lit a spark under Waters’ ass this time around, and he has channeled it into one of the finer moments in his – and ANNIHILATOR‘s – long career.” — Knac.com
“…a Grade A thrash album with memorable hooks… and most of all ace guitar playing. Waters is one of the best guitarists out there… a brilliant technical marvel with magic fingers and rock steady control who’s consistently overlooked and undervalued.” — Rock Shop Pop
“Ballistic, Sadistic as the latest ANNIHILATOR offering assembles the best aspects of diversity and skilled, technical-laden songwriting to create a record that bridges the past to the present.” — Dead Rhetoric
