Doomsday for the Deceiver
was Flotsam and Jetsam's only album to feature Jason Newsted
before his departure for Metallica. Guitarist Michael Gilbert told us
this tune was written just before he joined the band in 1985. "That was the very first song that I ever played with these guys," he recalled. "That song brings back a ton of memories for me. I think Newsted had written that one all on his own, and he gave it to me in the form of a demo way back in the day."
