‘I Am The Weapon’ Declare Flotsam And Jetsam

Veteran thrash metal band Flotsam And Jetsam has issued the title track from their forthcoming, 15th studio album,  I Am The Weapon as a brand new single. 

The band commented: “We’re very excited about this new album, I Am The Weapon. We put a great amount of effort and thought into the music, and we can’t wait to start unleashing this metal assault on the music community.”

New single ‘I Am The Weapon’ is now available on all digital providers  here and you can check out the lyric video here at RAMzine.

It’s been almost 40 years since Flotsam And Jetsam, formed in Phoenix, Arizona released their landmark debut, Doomsday For The Deceiver, the only album to ever receive a 6K rating from the Kerrang! Magazine. Bassist Jason Newsted would jump ship to Metallica while the band released 1988’s No Place For Disgrace. In 1992 came Cuatro, in 1995 Drift, 1997 High and My God in 2001 – While all rank high in heavy metal circles it was the first part of this unofficial trilogy in 2016’s self-titled Flotsam And Jetsam that a certain rejuvenation and reset was clearly felt, and on 24th May that record will be issued as a strictly limited, gatefold clear 2 LP vinyl edition.
 
Fast-forward five years from then to a planet that was forced to its knees. While spending most of the pandemic times in a holding pattern like the rest of the world,  Flotsam And Jetsam made the best of a struggling situation and just let those creative juices and angst flow. What emerged was Blood In The Water with I Am The Weapon now due for release.
