Metal Army America spent some time chatting with Michael Gilbert, guitarist and songwriter for American thrash metal legends FLOTSAM AND JETSAM. The band is hard at work on their forthcoming album, Ugly Noise due out later this year. They are using a unique platform to produce and deliver their new album, using the social media crowd-sourcing channel Pledge Music to bring their music directly to their fans. Michael shared with us the thought process of using this means to make an album, the state of the music industry in 2012, the progress of making new music as well as a few surprises sure to raise some eyebrows and open some ears.
