Annihilator is Jeff Waters' band; the rest of the line-up has always been very unstable.

Since "Set the World on Fire," Annihilator albums have been mostly recorded with Waters playing all guitars and bass plus backing vocals (and lead vocals between 1994 and 1996) with live members joining up for tours. Current vocalist Dave Padden also plays rhythm guitar onstage.
