Former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted is in a new band that kicks ass. The "Newsted"  EP "Metal" was released on January 8th, 2014. The first single "Soldierhead" gave us our first glimpse of the band. Newsted left Metallica nearly 13 years ago to the day. I think he sounds like a combination of James Hetfield and Dave Mustaine. Whatever, the song ROCKS!
