Flotsam and Jetsam – Live In Phoenix
‘Live In Phoenix’ is the first ever-live video release from Arizona’s Flotsam and Jetsam; it saw the light of day on June 22nd, 2004. The band had operated for 20 years before they got anything like this out. The DVD includes a live set that happened in their hometown Phoenix, Arizona in July 2003. The set opens with ‘No Place For Disgrace’. The songs are from all albums from 1986 debut ‘Doomsday for the Deceiver’ to 2001’s ‘My God’, with the exception of 1997 album ‘High’.
The set list is a mixture of tight high-octane thrash metal and more groovier or almost progressive bits, and calmer times. ‘Hammerhead’, from the band’s debut album, is true thrashing, while ‘Chemical Noose’ from 1999 is bouncy, groovy roller. ‘Wading through the Darkness’ is an utterly dark and slow-tempo piece, but still works well in a live setting.
