Veteran American thrashers Flotsam And Jetsam have released a new single, Burn The Sky, the first track to be taken from upcoming album Blood In The Water, which is set for a 24th June release through AFM Records.
The legendary metallers have unveiled the first single of their upcoming studio album Blood in the Water via the official music video for the pummelling track Burn the Sky which can be watched below.
“While we were in the process of selecting which songs we would use for the album’s videos, Burn the Sky was the only one that was on everyone’s lists consistently” commented front-man Eric A.K. “This track has some guitar work by Mike (Gilbert) and Steve (Conley) that are second to none.”
“We really had a hell of a time figuring out which songs actually include in this album, because we don’t feel we have any fillers” – added guitarist Gilbert. When asked about why the band’s sound have evolved throughout the last albums to a much heavier output, he said: “I don’t want anyone feeling we are getting fucking old. As long as we continue doing this, we are gonna bring it. Our sound changed through the years influenced by many factors, but what you are listening to now is who we are and will continue to be”
“The recording of this album was very much a natural process, we really worked together as a team to make sure that everything that needed to be on the record, was indeed on it. I haven’t listened to it for a while and I went back and listened recently, and it really gives the impression that we are really angry” commented drummer Ken Mary.
Blood In The Water was mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen (U.D.O., Volbeat, Amaranthe, Powerwolf), who also worked on the band’s previous record, 2019’s The End of Chaos.
Blood In The Water is ‘complete musical mayhem with a crushing, rolling, and aggressive attack that will knock you down’. The new music delivers the finest fast and hard metal for new and old-school thrashers alike. The album track-listing can be seen below, and pre-orders for physical/digital version of the album are underway.
