The overall contribution from each member makes it a more complete musical experience from top to bottom and the musicianship is sharp as nails. I think this one might be one of the strongest offerings that the Avenue of Allies label has released all year in terms of quality.
To be honest there are times when we don’t all get along. There are four strong personalities and like a marriage you are going to have things to talk and work through
If Flotsam and Jetsam are a band whose career you have followed the whole time, then you may likely enjoy the new album Ugly Noise more than I did. The only moments I really appreciated where those brief shining moments of thrash that I enjoyed so much from their first couple of albums. Sadly it’s just not enough to make me want to listen to this album over and over again.
