Attention all old school metal fans! Last month Chris and Aaron devoted an episode to thrash metal posing the question who would be a part of the “Big 5” if there were such a thing. This prompted me to re-visit some of my musical collection and directed me to Metallica’s former bass player Jason Newsted and his latest effort released in early August. I already had the album in my collection, but somehow it became rather overlooked until this prompted my re-visit. Since then Newsted’s Heavy Metal Music has been in regular rotation on my mp3 player.
Becoming interested in music in his youth at around the age of fourteen, Jason Newsted soon discovered Metallica who quickly rose through the ranks and became one of his favourite bands. Four years later saw the
lude the aforementioned “Heroic Dose”, “…As The Crow Flies” (probably my favourite on the CD), “Above All”and “Kindevillusion”, but there’s not a bad track found here. Jason Newsted and company are a band to watch out for in the future.

The ‘Ole Meister even had the chance to catch Newsted live back in June. I was fortunate enough to be able to trek from the Great White North of Toronto
