It is the first Newsted release to feature guitarist Mike Mushok who joined the band following their debut release EP, Metal (2013).

The music on the album lives up to the title. It’s straightforward, old-fashioned heavy metal. Sonically, Newsted do not follow the template of their frontman’s previous bands like Flotsam and Jetsam, Metallica or Voivod. You will hear a few influences of those bands, but overall ‘Newsted’ is more in the vein of Motorhead or Prong. The album opens with ‘Heroic Dose,’ a hard-edged but melodic track. Newsted’ is packed with blue-collar, unpretentious, meat-and-potatoes metal. Newsted’s pedigree includes thrash and prog, but there are a lot of doom influences on ‘Heavy Metal Music’ as well. Nocturnus’ and ‘Twisted Tail of the Comet,’ both on the second half of the album, are the doomiest tracks on the record, and you’ll hear some Black Sabbath influences elsewhere, too. ‘Above All’ has a modern rock sensibility with a memorable chorus and catchy riffs, but enough heaviness to be classified as metal.
While certainly heavy, the midtempo sound the band operates in isn't quite slow enough to be monolithic, and isn't fast enough to really dazzle, so while it is competently executed, it lacks any kind of visceral punch. This makes the album's title of Heavy Metal Music a bit of a double-edged sword, because while it definitely delivers metal, it feels like a generic placeholder while the band waits for something better to come along.
2013 album from former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted and his new band. The album is the first Newsted release to feature Staind guitarist Mike Mushok, who joined the band after the recording of the first Newsted EP, Metal. Although Newsted left Metallica in 2001 and has worked on other projects, this is his first release under his own name.
