WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT DOOMSDAY FOR THE DECEIVER...

Upon conclusion "Doomsday for the Deceiver" is an original sounding US thrash metal release. I hear some nods toward early Metallica, Megadeth, and Judas Priest, but Flotsam and Jetsam have managed to forge a pretty unique and recognisable sound, which was no easy treat in those days, when the scene was overflowing with new thrash metal acts trying to make it big. The fact that this is a debut album, just makes the accomplishment even more impressive. A 4.5 star (90%) rating is well deserved.
                                                        METAL-ARCHIVES.COM

Hailing from Arizona and named after a chapter in The Lord of the Rings, Flotsam and Jetsam is best known for having coughed up bassist (and main songwriter) Jason Newsted to Metallica. But the Phoenix band’s gloriously dense and intense 1986 debut — their only album with Newsted — stands on its own merits. The influence of Judas Priest and Iron Maiden looms large, but this is NWOBHM on speed....
                                    REVOLVER MAGAZINE 

30 years later, “Doomsday For The Deceiver” is still a fresh speed/thrash diamond, essential for every self-respecting metal collection.
                                                METALPATHS.COM

ABOUT THE ALBUM
The arrival of Flotsam and Jetsam’s debut album caused a stir on many fronts. Doomsday for the Deceiver may have been released by Metal Blade—one of America’s leading independent metal lights—on Independence Day in 1986, but it was the Brits who took an exceptional shine to the pack of Arizona wild dogs (repped by Flotzilla, their jacked-up, Godzilla-meets-anglerfish mascot). Famously, Kerrang! gave the album a review glowing enough to power the grid of the band’s Phoenix home, topping high praise with an improbable six out of a possible five “K” score.

Granted, Kerrang!’s hyperbole concerning Flotsam’s classy-yet-blue-collar, energetic-but-virtuosic thrash was fully justified. Ribald hook-up anthem “Hammerhead” was a stadium-sized ripper powered by Jason Newsted’s walking basslines; “Iron Tears” had the guitar tandem of Edward Carlson and Michael Gilbert playing off drummer Kelly David-Smith’s precise pounding to deliver an infectious staccato shuffle; “Desecrator” combined galloping classic rock with sinister speed metal; and the title track was an epic, progressive marvel. Then there was frontman Erik “A.K.” Knutson, who quickly shot to the top of metal’s vocal pack with an unbelievable range, contagious vocal lines and the ability to punch holes in cloud cover, especially with the classically inspired, high-pitched harmonization in “Fade to Black” and “She Took an Axe.”

The hard-working quintet had a classic at the ready, one which the press had rolled out the red carpet for. But as quickly as the future appeared to be theirs for the taking, all plans were detoured after Metallica’s Cliff Burton was killed and bassist/bandleader Jason Newsted secured the gig that every thrashing four-stringer would have traded their grandma to get. For all involved, Doomsday for the Deceiver meant different things. For Newsted, it was an inadvertent stepping stone to 14 years spent with the biggest band in metal. For Gilbert and Knutson, it was the first of a 15-album career that continues to this day. For David-Smith and Carlson, it was the dominating force of their creative lives until they both stepped down in 2014. For thrash metal fans, it remains a genre highlight and one easily inducted into induct the Decibel Magazine Hall of Fame.

This remastered LIME GREEN cassette-only reissue comes with a full-color layout in a 4-panel insert, and is limited to just 300 units world-wide.  It is part of the elite Metal Icon Series on Brutal Planet Records.  For fans of early Deliverance, Forbidden, Metal Church!

 WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT NO PLACE FOR DISGRACE (2014)....

No Place for Disgrace 2014 improves the sound, somewhat, changes some parts here and there, but more or less is the exact same album.
                                                              THE METAL OBSERVER

This new production setting accentuated the lead twin guitar work of Edward Carlson and Michael Gilbert, which sounded grand, both exchanging energetic alongside touchy soloing showcases, combined with hard edge rhythm guitar riffs that celebrated the hey days of that album.
                                                       METAL TEMPLE REVIEWS

“No Place For Disgrace” has been one of the most seminal, though criminally underrated, Thrash Metal albums of the 80s.
                                 GET READY TO ROCK REVIEWS

ABOUT THE ALBUM
Flotsam And Jetsam will always be known as the band where ex-Metallica bassist learned his skills and that is perhaps the reason why Doomsday For The Deceiver (1986), the band’s debut studio albums, is revered the way it is by Metalheads around the world. It was the band’s inability to obtain the master tapes to their 1988 sophomore release No Place For Disgrace that led them to re-record the ten compositions on offer and, with a slightly revised album cover, now presented under the title No Place For Disgrace 2014

This remastered RED cassette-only reissue comes with a full-color layout in a 4-panel insert, and is limited to just 300 units world-wide.  It is part of the elite Metal Icon Series on Brutal Planet Records.  For fans of early Deliverance, Forbidden, Metal Church!

 WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT HIGH....

"Monster" absolutely &%#@ kicks ass - such an incredibly fun little song, very original and simply cool as hell.
                         METAL ARCHIVES REVIEWS

With cuts like "Hallucinational", "Everything," "It's On Me" and "Toast," one knows that Flotsam means business.  Obviously F & J draws at least some influences from Judas Priest and Diamond Head. Should appeal to fans of Metal Church, Overkill, Exodus and Megadeth. A good catalog release.  
                            VINE VOICE REVIEWS

ABOUT THE ALBUM
For Flotsam and Jetsam, the heavy metal highway has been sprinkled with nails. First, the band's frontman Jason Newsted quit to seek his fame and fortune with Metallica. Eleven years after releasing its classic album Doomsday for the Deceiver, the band returned to the label that signed it, writing more aggressive material than it had in years. High is a declaration of hate, brimming with full-fisted guitar riffs and head-bobbing beats--an unrestrained battle cry from a band that refuses to lay down and die. --Jon Wiederhorn

 WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT MY GOD....

This album also marks the return of guitar solos. There are six in the opener and the solo in "Weather To Do" is fantastic. The title track combines everything that is right about this album into a succinct, 5:00+ song.
                                       METAL ARCHIVES REVIEWS

Die-hard fans of the band can buy this one blindly. If you don't know them and you like Metallica, Megadeth or Annihilator, you should try this band and their new record. Other wise, wrong way.
                       METAL REVIEWS

Released in 2001 on Metal Blade Records, the band embraces their thrash roots with full force.  Dig Me Up, Camera Eye, Trash, and the title track all re-establish the band as leaders in the modern thrash movement!

 WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT UGLY NOISE....

The new album is good, certainly evidence that this band has fuel left in the tank. The best songs on this album are those that have the highest levels of energy. I wouldn't describe the music here as thrash so much as just straight up heavy metal. For me, the best tracks on this album were "Ugly Noise," "Gitty Up," "Rabbits Foot," "Rage," and "Machine Gun." Flotsam and Jetsam certainly continue to demonstrate that they aren't merely old news. Give it a listen.
                   SEA OF TRANQUILITY REVIEW

Ugly Noise is a career-defining record.
                      METAL FORCES MAGAZINE

ABOUT THE ALBUM
After a decade of existing as an afterthought to metal fans, Phoenix, Arizona’s Flotsam And Jetsam go for broke on Ugly Noise. Featuring the return of original members Michael Gilbert (guitars) and Kelly David Smith (drums), this is the first Flotsam And Jetsam record they have appeared on since 1997’s High.

Initially, the band jammed with their former colleague Jason Newsted (ex-Metallica, Voivod and Echobrain, and currently of Newsted – in case you haven’t been paying attention for the last 30 years) as well, but he ultimately decided not to reunite with the band. Newsted is listed as a co-writer for some of the album’s material however.

Everything on Ugly Noise is a little off-kilter, heavy (although not always fast), groove-oriented, and intense. In that sense it reminds me a good deal of the Drift album (1995). Kicking off with the piano-laden title track, a haunting tone is immediately set. The band tear it up in epic proportions declaring “ugly noise and beautiful lives”, a seemingly intimate idea that should strike a chord with well-adjusted heavy metal fans worldwide.

‘Run And Hide’ is another mid-tempo, bluesy-in-spots, gem that hits you just right, while the vocally adventurous (at least for a Flotsam And Jetsam record) ‘Cross The Sky’ serves as a firm reminder that the boys still have plenty to experiment with. Overall, the song is an affair that doesn’t manage to take off in my opinion, but I love hearing something new from such a classic band.

‘Motherfuckery’ moves along at a fast clip and reminds me of a cross between the angrier moments on The Cold (2010) and Drift, while managing a much tighter and crunchier sound than the material on those albums. It’s a little more pissed off than some of the other tracks. While I’m excited to not hear that sound from start to finish, ‘Motherfuckery’, the slightly more anthemic ‘I Believe’, and ‘Machine Gun’ give fans plenty of reason to raise their fist during the second half of the album. Eric “A.K.” Knutson’s vocals are perfect throughout this album, but these three songs prove his balls are just as big as they were in their heyday. He’s a lot more well-rounded in 2012 (yelling, singing, grunting a bit here and there), keeping him ranked among my very favourite metal vocalists.

While it’s tempting to see this as an immediate return to form, it’s certainly been a process as many of the better elements of The Cold and Dreams Of Death (2005) are present here. The fact is that Flotsam And Jetsam have settled gracefully into the next era of their evolution. Still heavy, still thoughtful, still angry… just not all the time. While I’ve enjoyed all of the band’s albums, Ugly Noise is a career-defining record.

This remastered BLACK (with gold metallic print) cassette-only reissue comes with a full-color layout in a 4-panel insert, and is limited to just 200 units world-wide. It is part of the elite Metal Icon Series on Brutal Planet Records. For fans of early Deliverance, Forbidden, Metal Church!
