NUCLEAR BLAST
18/02/2011


One of the most underestimated american bands returns with a new album called "The Cold" ! FLOTSAM and JETSAM had quite an impressive impact back in the eighties with two now classic albums "Doomsday For The Deceiver" and "No Place For Disgrace" and then slowly fell into a relative oblivion in spite of very decent albums (my opinion, ok ?) .... Dunno why... because I personally like most of the band albums... maybe a lack of promotion... complete mystery... Now I simply hope that "The Cold" will make them justice and will help to get the recognition they really deserve because "The Cold" is simply an AWESOME album ! I had read somewhere the band got back to their old-school style... but sorry I disagree... this album is really far from "Doomsday For The Deceiver" and "No Place For Disgrace" and I'm rather happy about that... I mean a "copycat" album would have been a shame... No, "The Cold" keeps on delivering the now very personal FLOTSAM and JETSAM style with the particular modern approach - but still based on traditional metal, mixing melody of Heavy-Metal and power of Thrash-Metal... They renewed their style like they did on previous albums but don't betray the roots ! This is an album that is a real pleasure to listen to, all songs here are just GREAT ! Opening song "Hypocrite", title track "The Cold", that amazing heavy ballad "Better Off Dead".... they're all made with some of the best riffs & solos ever, helped by a very strong clear & powerful production ! About the vocals, I'd say Erik "AK" Knutson does here an amazing job, maybe his BEST vocal performance ever ! This guy knows how to sing METAL with class & a strong personality (finally a singer that doesn't sound like 100000 other ones !). Undoubtly a KILLER album that all fans of METAL should add to their record collection !
