Flotsam and Jetsam - Doomsday for the Deceiver (1986) Cover

First impressions for this album aren't great. To be honest, Flotsam and Jetsam is a stupid name for a band. And the artwork on this sucker is truly atrocious. But never being one to judge a book by its cover, I thought I'd give this renowned album a fair go.

While this is thrash metal, it's more on the softer, melodic side of things (think Anthrax), rather than the more venomous (think Kreator). With a vocalist that sounds classically heavy metal and a tendency to play long tracks, I must admit this isn't completely my thing. There are some decent riffs on here and the drumming is tight enough. I just don't find myself wanting to come back for more. I've listened to it a handful of times and can't find any outstanding tracks. Nor can I find any bad ones. I'm going to give it a generous 3.
