Good old Flotsam and Jetsam, founded by Jason Newsted back when metal was metal and Exodus and Testament ran rampant. They've pounded out their own brand of thrash/metal for the better part of 15 years. I admit I don't have all of their albums, sure there's Doomsday For The Deceiver which is a must have, even though it's classically cheesy. I've got Quatro and High, both pretty decent metal efforts, but unfortunately not getting much attention...
Now we've got their latest, "My God" and I must say it's not bad. Continuing with their traditional old school sound but mixing in a few surprises here and there, with those riffs that have all but dissapeared from mainstream metal/hard rock. You'll probably never see this band at Ozzfest or Tattoo The Earth, but Flotsam has managed to erase any fears that metal as we know it died almost 10 years ago.
