I wouldn't call the new Flots album a thrash record at all. There's hardly any actual thrash on it. A decent metal record, no doubt, and the vocals are great (very Geoff Tate in places) but the actual music is rather a disappointment for me.

It could be faster and I wouldn't say brutal.But it's still one of the best albums I've bought in 10 years.

Funny that you say that about Geoff Tate.I think that the vocals over the acoustic part in the title track sounded a lot like Queensryche

Actually I think there is a good deal of thrash on here.flotsam just has a different style than most bands.Honestly I was hoping for more of a "No Place For Disgrace" style But hey not everyone can be Testament!!

The only flotsam albums that were really thrash were "No Place" and "Doomsday." I don't really consider "When The Storm Comes Down" to be thrash. That's not taking anything away from their heaviness and there are some songs that are thrash, but not the whole album.

I guess I'm the only one thinking Flotsome is quite lame LoL...and the new one is far from thrash....
Lets focus on the new Testament album!

It's not full on thrash no.But I still think it's fast enough to qualify.And yes let's get some Testament already.
I agree that the first 2 were the only full on thrash all the way through and personally I like brutality and speed the most.But I also appreciate a band
Like Flotsam and Jetsam who is very genuinely their own band and goes a little beyond the confines and creates other moods without selling out and sounding to gay.AK is a real deal vocalist and that is going to define the heaviness somewhat.But like I said not everyone can be down right devastating like Testament.But I'm glad there is a Flotsam and Jetsam.

When Eric or someone in the band goes to England for something like that who pays for it?Is it the record company or do they?
