Thrashback Thursday: ‘Hammerhead’ By Flotsam & Jetsam
  |  @   |  

Here with the opening track of their 1986 debut album
Doomsday for the Deceiver is Phoenix, Arizona’s Flotsam and Jetsam.

The album was the first in history to receive 6 Ks from Kerrang Magazine (their version of a perfect score). Flotsam remains active to this day, though they are still best known as the band that bassist Jason Newsted left to join Metallica after the tragic accident that killed Cliff Burton in 1986. While all five band members share music credit for Doomsday, Newsted was the lead lyricist, solely writing all but three songs (for those he had co-writing credit).
