FLOTSAM AND JETSAM drummer Craig Nielsen has posted the following message on the group's official message board:
"Just wanted to check in to say that our new record has been finally all tracked and will now be mixed starting this weekend. This is a very, very good FLOTSAM record, in my opinion the best in over eight years. If you are a fan of this band, you are going to like this vibe very much. And I would stick my neck out to say we will attract some converts after this one. And I can't say enough how cool the cover is, it really goes well with the title, 'Dreams of Death', and whole mood of the songs. And the engineer has done a great job with the tones and technical skills. I can't wait get it back mixed and mastered.
"And we are on the Louder, Harder, Faster show in Allentown, Pa. on June 3, with TESTAMENT and a lot of cool bands, we will soon start figuring out the best way to release the Japanese DVD from our recent Tokyo show, which is an amazing FLOTSAM show captured and edited very well from the local crew.
"So there it is, this band has a lot to look forward to with these things in the works. [Eric] A.K. [vocals] did an amazing job on the record, he sounds genuinely inspired going through the songs. It should be a good year... Flots til It Rots."
As previously reported, "Dreams of Death" was recorded at Genesis Studios in Phoenix, Arizona and will feature cover art by Travis Smith (ICED EARTH, NEVERMORE, etc.). A late June release via Crash Music Inc. is expected.
