Blackened Eyes Staring
Better Off Dead
Flotsam and Jetsam have been around for nearly thirty years and have never truly received the attention that they deserve. Some of the blame could be placed on bad timing (Cuatro) or bad productions (When the Storm Comes Down and Dream of Death) – and their unwavering dedication to flying the thrash flag through the nineties probably had something to do with it too – but it doesn’t fully explain how this band has remained in the shadows all of these years. The real shame is that Flotsam and Jetsam seem to be firing on all cylinders again and have released their best album since 1992, and a majority of metal fans probably won’t ever realize it.
The Cold was released on September 14th through Driven Music Group and was produced by Ralph Patlan at Phase 4 Studios in Phoenix, Arizona. Cover art was done by Travis Smith (Iced Earth, Psychotic Waltz).
Album currently on sell for $7.99 through Amazon Digital.
