Flotsam And Jetsam - Dreams Of Death (Crash Music) - Back
If you have been a fan of thrash over the last 20 years, Flotsam and Jetsam must be well known to you. These guys are thrash legends. And for those who have been dead to the world, after the tragic death of Cliff Burton, bassist Jason Newstead who came from Flotsam and Jetsam replaced him. Back then Flotsam recorded their first disc and now “Dreams of Death” is there tenth disc I believe, and this disc goes back to their roots. There are tons of great riffs that vary from the thrashy to the melodic. But, I love the raw thrashy sound! You can find acoustic guitar elements used throughout the disc. A good example of this is the melodic elements on “Look In His Eyes.” The chorus is awesome! All tracks are at least decent and most tracks are good thrash models. Travis Smith did the artwork for the cover of this disc. You probably know some of his other work from the covers of Nevermore and Iced Earth albums. There are nine songs plus one hidden for over forty-seven minutes on this album. “Dreams of Death” is a CD that most metalheads should pick up. You won’t be disappointed. Another solid effort to add to Flotsam’s repertoire.
