Published Jul 29, 2013Jason Newsted sticks to what he knows best on his Newsted project's horns-raising, tellingly titled Heavy Metal Music LP, which is now available to stream a week ahead of the album's August 6 release date via Chophouse Records.
Following the group's Metal EP from earlier this year, the record has the famous former Metallica four-stringer and his backup band delivering some old-school riffery, including the NWOBHM-style twin leads on "Ampossible" and the sinister, Sabbath-styled sludge stomp of "Nocturnus." You can check out those tracks and all the rest down below via a full album stream on YouTube.
Newsted are currently out on the road with Megadeth, with sets coming up in Montreal (as part of Heavy MTL) and Toronto, as well as Abbotsford, BC, tonight (July 29). You can get the tour schedule details over here.
