Back in 2006, Flotsam and Jetsam remixed and remastered their debut album Doomsday For The Deceiver (a.k.a. the one with Jason Newsted on it). Instead of doing the same for their sophomore album, the band just decided to re-record the whole damn thing. No Place For Disgrace – 2014 will be made available digitally on February 18 with the physical CD coming on March 4 on Metal Blade.
The band stated the following in a press release for the album:
“We have re-recorded ‘No Place For Disgrace’ because we have had a lot of requests to remix this record. The master tapes have been very difficult to obtain so we decided to re-record the album and use some of today’s technologies to recreate it. The aim was not really to change but to enhance it with the opportunity with the use of new tools. We have the time available as well and it just seemed like a no brainer. A lot of the die hards are really nervous about it but I think after the final result they will embrace it. The sound quality is 100% better and more refined!”
