Flotsam and Jetsam

Sacred Reich – Awakening (Metal Blade)

When I met and interviewed Phil Rind 12 years ago, he emphatically told me they were just doing some 20th anniversary shows and then packing it all in again. I am so glad that they decided against that, and to… Continue Reading →

Overkill, Destruction, Flotsam and Jetsam – London Islington Academy 21/3/19

Coldsteel – America Idle (Stormspell Records)

Re-activated after years away from the scene, a trait common with Stormspell bands (which is great news!), these thrashers have this EP ready to whet your appetite. One of the first things you may come to realise with this is… Continue Reading →
