the sheeple swing

<< Updated text here >>
Jeff Waters, known for Annihilator, created Amerikan Kaos, drawing from a broad spectrum of musical influences. He used this project to step beyond Annihilator’s typical style, planning a trilogy that traverses various genres. “Armageddon Boogie,” the first release, showcases a blend of heavy metal and hard rock, influenced by Van Halen and the Rolling Stones. Key collaborators include drummer Brian Tichy and vocalist Chandler Mogel, who contribute dynamic drumming and bluesy vocals, respectively. This album signifies Waters’ adventurous foray into diverse musical landscapes.
