The rock journeyman finally releases his solo debut. It’s just over a decade since Jason Newsted called time on his 15 years with Metallica, a gig he landed after the tragic death of original bassist Cliff Burton. Since then he’s become one of the most prolific players on the circuit, including stints with Ozzy Osbourne and thrash legends Voivod. Jason ‘New Kid’ is 50 now, and Heavy Metal Music – there’s some statement of intent – is as solid as his lengthy CV would lead you to expect.Its chugging riffery and Newsted’s near-spoken growl pinpoint largely legacy influences – the nu metal crowd might find it a little too trad. But at its best, as on the churning …As the Crow Flies, or on the crunching, Sabbath slowburn of Futurereality, it’s a blast, and his sure-footed backing (including Staind guitarist Mike Mushok) play up a storm. Hugely likeable, highly recommended.
