Flotsam & Jetsam Re-Recording
2013-09-17 by Trey Spencer STAFF | 22 Comments
Arizona thrash/metal band Flotsam and Jetsam are getting set to completely re-record their second album, No Place For Disgrace. The band have opened up another donation site through pledge music in order to get the album done.

Pledge Music: http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/npfd?utm_campaign=project7506&utm_medium=email&utm _source=pledgemusic



Press Release:

Over the years many of you have requested a remix, remaster of No Place for Disgrace. We we have taken this a step further and decided to do a total reproduction of the original 10 songs.

With the reproduction of NPFD it allows us to up the ante on the production side of things to a new level of quality that a remix just wouldn't be able to acheive.

We as of yet will not be releasing this in download form so to keep the vintage effect alive and well.

For previous Pledgers, as you know some of the exclusives will have limited versions, and one of kind items so don't miss out before they are gone.

We look forward to another successful project, we will be adding updates on our page in the next few days from the studio to get you in on whats going on and our progress. We will also have clips as the begin to take shape and move towards final mixing stage.

Until next time......

"Arizona thrash/metal band Flotsam and Jetsam"


That's a name for an insufferably twee indie pop group, surely

How can it be "thrash/metal"? You can't pick one or the other, thrash is a subgenre of metal. Unnecessary slash, methinks.

Iced Earth, Testament and Anacrusis are three bands that re-recorded some of their earlier stuff and it turned out pretty good.

You can pick one or the other... I just did it. It was really easy. Scary almost.

Any metal band with enough balls to name themselves after the Little Mermaid eels is cool in my book ;)

It's generally a bad idea.

Haven't actually heard the original yet, which needs to change since Doomsday is excellent. Most of the time these re-recordings seem pointless though.

I think people that have grown up with the original recordings will want to stick to what they know, but I do think that re-recordings have a lot of appeal for new listeners that don't like the old-school 80s productions (referring to Iced Earth, Testament, Anacrusis, etc).

I see that, but production is only part of it. Often the band itself has changed, and cannot hope to recapture the same passion and spirit that went into the original record. Besides, the rawer 80's production often goes hand in hand with the music, or for me at least.

It depends. In the case of Iced Earth, the re-recordings with Matt Barlow totally dominated the original recordings. With Testament's 'First Strike Still Deadly', the sound was better and so was the drumming, but the leads were lacking Alex's touch. This is going to feature the entire line-up from the original album, so the only thing we'll have is a 'better' production. Eric's vocals are definitely better these days, so if he throws a bit more 'grit' into these songs, that could push it to another level.

Days of Purgatory was recorded relatively soon after the originals though, and Barlow easily outclassed his predecessors as a vocalist. That said, I still agree with your point. I was actually planning to check out FSSD sometime soon, but for this one I'll get the original first as I haven't heard it at all.

Haven't listened to No Place For Disgrace in a while, but I remember the guitar volume was lacking a bit.

Things got much much better on When the Storm Comes Down and Cuatro, though.

--I was actually planning to check out FSSD sometime soon, but for this one I'll get the original first as I haven't heard it at all. --

Testament's original drummer was very boring. He makes Shawn Drover's (Megadeth) style look interesting. So everything with a new drummer playing the old songs is better. On the other hand, anything without Alex Scholnick is kind of lacking.

--Haven't listened to No Place For Disgrace in a while, but I remember the guitar volume was lacking a bit.--

Yeah, No Place For Disgrace with a Cuatro production could be awesome.
