Ex-Metallica bassist Jason Newsted has released a stream of “Soldierhead”, the first single from his new band Newsted. The song comes from his upcoming EP Metal, which comes out on Jan. 8th, 2013 (pre-order on iTunes here). It’s a pretty badass song, mixing elements of Motorhead and Testament into some good old fashioned thrash metal. Very fun stuff. Check it out below.

    This is awful, but at least it’s better than Echobrain.
