Solid Debut Full Length From Jason Jason started a new chapter of his musical career when he released the “Metal” EP a few months ago under the band name Newsted. The four songs on that EP were a perfect sampler of what Jason’s first full-length album would hold. This CD is comprised of eleven songs that could all be described as basic heavy metal, with music similar to old-school, Motorhead-inspired speed metal, some groove-heavy riffs that sound like the better-sounding parts of Load, Re-Load-era Metallica, and some Testament-style thrash, but more simple. For music like this to appeal to me, which Jason has openly stated is meant to be basic, it needs to get my head banging, or my foot stomping, or my fist pumping.

Heavy Metal Music delivers the goods! This album is a breath of fresh air. There is no pretense to this album other than Heavy. It delivers this in a very big way. There are songs from essentially every genre of Metal. Thrash, Progressive, Speed and Power Metal form a very well rounded first effort.

Regular rotation in my household.There is nothing more to say than this album delivers exactly…
