Newsted, featuring Jason Newsted and Staind guitarist Mike Mushok, released their debut album — Heavy Metal Music — August 6.
Now Newsted and Guitar World are giving you the chance to win the new album — and a poster signed by the band!
The grand-prize winner gets a copy of Heavy Metal Music on vinyl and a signed poster.
Two runners-up will win the CD and a poster (unsigned).
Matching and exceeding their teaser EP, Metal (which bowed at No. 1 on the iTunes metal chart), Newsted’s debut full-length assault, Heavy Metal Music, is short on pretense and long on crushing riffs. Be it the throwback Sabbathian strut of “Ampossible,” the breakneck gallop of “Long Time Dead” or the full-speed-ahead charge of “Above All,” the 11-song behemoth cements the quartet’s place as one of metal’s hungriest outfits.
Heavy Metal Music is the product of Jason’s long hours learning and performing with rock’s greats — Warren Haynes, Zakk Wylde, James Hetfield, Andreas Kisser — yet never losing sight of his old-school sensibilities.
“I could’ve pulled superstars together, but it wouldn’t be the same belief,” he stresses. “These guys support me. We hang out before we jam, we hang out after we jam. We have dinners, we have drinks, we vibe like brothers.”
