Newsted's debut full-length album is Heavy Metal Music. "Former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted brings thrash and a little bit of And Justice For All to his new band's release.Titled Heavy Metal Music, it feels like Newsted (the man), was trying to envision the album Metallica could have followed the Black album with. Incorporating aspects of And Justice For All-era Metallica, with the band's Jason Newsted has worked with since leaving the metal giants, Heavy Metal Music is a mix between hard rock, ala the Black album, and the pure thrash of Newsted's other work with Flotsam & Jetsam and Voivod.

"The impact of this record will vary according to your love of the thrash genre. Riff is king here. Whether penned entirely by Jason Newsted, or with input from his band, Heavy Metal Music cracks the riff-whip hard. This is head-banging music, old school style. The kind that inspires you to cut the sleeves off a jean jacket, then adorn the back with a Motorhead patch. You want eighties thrash? BAM!! You got eighties thrash.

"'Heroic Dose' is a killer opening jam. A bass heavy rock monster, fully charged by Jason Newsted's thick low end. 'Soldierhead' brings in the Motorhead speed, while 'As The Crow Flies' is all grimy groove. 'Long Time Dead' also takes its direction from Motorhead, but folds in generous helpings of Among The Living-era Anthrax. "King Of The Underdogs" is full on Metallica. Not just the structure and the riff, but also the sing-along chorus, which is worthy of any arena show." — Crave Online.
