Album Review

Fifteen years and a dozen bandmembers later, Flotsam & Jetsam continued their consistently punishing metal assault in 2001 with My God. After the group's stunning 1986 Metal Blade debut, Doomsday for the Deceiver launched the Phoenix band into the highest ranks of the second-wave thrash artists. Several major-label releases followed that, while successful within the ranks of the metal underground, never elevated the band above cult status. On My God, original members Eric Knutson (vocals) and Ed Carlson (guitars) are joined by drummer Craig Nielson, guitarist Mark Simpson, and bassist Jason Ward. Each member displays fine musicianship with the guitar duo of Carlson and Simpson laying down some exceptionally heavy riffs and tight harmony solos. Standout tracks include ferocious numbers like "Dig Me up to Bury Me" and "Frustrate," and even slightly mellower numbers like "Trash" maintain a fierceness that young and old metal fans should enjoy. Perhaps one of the best Flotsam & Jetsam offerings in over a decade, My God deserves a strong recommendation, especially for the group's longtime fans.

Customer Reviews

Bangin' Again

Stopped buying Flotsam after their Drift album due to its' extreme metal sound. Yeah, I know the serious bangers are calling me a puss but Erik A.K.s vocals are not used to their full potential as in "Drift" and "Quatro". He is a GREAT Metal vocalist right in their with Halford. The dude can sing. Great lyrics and excellent sound on this album. "Trash" , "Nothing to Say" and "Weather to Do" are my tops. Check it out if you need a workout playlist for the pod.

The Best Flotsam And Jetsam Album

I been listening to Flotsam and Jetsam since I bought Doomsday For The Deceiver when it came out. I used see them live a lot to in the late 80s. They were a servicable Thrash band then, but never put together anything close to a complete album until this one came out. The production is great on this album and the musicianship top notch. This is probably the best vocal outing by Eric Knudtsen and the riffs are heavy yet this album provides great dynamics which they never really mastered before. The mellower songs like Trash balance the thrashers like Dig Me up To Bury Me. And many of the songs on this album even show a progressive slant that is really appealing to this metalheads ears! I never would have thought Flotsam and Jetsam could have put out this kind of album after their mediocre showing in the early years. This album was a great leap for them artistically and the album's performance is near flawless! This is their best, if you are going get into Flotsam And Jetsam start here, you won't regret it. This album is the shizz.

A Great Metal Album

I have followed Flotsam and Jetsam from the start. Not only is this their best album but it is one of the metal classics. Dig Me Up to Bury Me, Nothing to Say and My God are great songs with terrific lyrics. You cannot go wrong with this album.

Flotsam and Jetsam initially showed a lot of promise within thrash metal circles and, though they've continued to record over the past 15 years, their talent and professionalism never quite translated into significant sales or mainstream recognition. Formed in Arizona by vocalist Eric A. K., guitarists Michael Gilbert and Edward Carlson, bassist Jason Newsted, and drummer Kelly David-Smith, Flotsam and Jetsam were part of the second wave of thrash bands. After signing with Metal Blade Records, they...
