Classic metal band Flotsam And Jetsam have released a new lyric video, for the track “Seventh Seal”, featured on the band’s new self-titled album, released back on May 20th via AFM Records.
Check out the new clip below!
Flotsam And Jetsam recently announced their new management deal with Salem Rose Music, the management company of former Century Media Records President and Metal Blade employee Marco Barbieri. With 20 plus years in the business Marco is excited to work with one of his favorite bands.
I go back with Flotsam as a fan since the beginning. I was first exposed via the Metal Massacre VII compilation in 1986 and immediately picked up their debut, Doomsday for the Deceiver, the same year. I wrote the band praising them for their work and wound up becoming friends with then-bassist Jason Newsted. In many ways working for Flotsam was my introduction to the business as he asked me then to help spread the word so I created an in-store display at the local record shop and arranged an interview with the local radio station. I’ve followed the group since and have seen them live on every tour. With the addition of Shadows Fall drummer Jason Bittner to their ranks they’ve added a more aggressively modern progressive energy to their melodic thrash/speed metal. I’m proud to work alongside these legends and create opportunities for them moving forward.
Flotsam And Jetsam stated:
There are times when you unexpectedly have people cross your paths at certain times that were meant to be, so when Jason and Marco reconnected at the time we were looking at our options regarding management, this quickly became one of those times. Marco’s one of those professionals that just gets it done, while knowing how to have fun doing it. We appreciate him bringing his expertise within this industry we call ‘music’ and welcome him to the Flotsam team, as we look forward to gaining some momentum with the release of the new album and having the band take on new challenges.
