AllMusic Review by

Fans looking for a middle ground between Jamey Jasta's output with melodic hardcore outfit Hatebreed and sludgy metalcore group Kingdom of Sorrow will find a great deal to love about the workhorse frontman’s solo debut. The eponymous Jasta kicks the door in with “Walk That Path Alone,” a blistering, Hatebreed-inspired chug-fest that sets the pace for 11 more cuts that are equally relentless, even when the tempo slides toward the middle. A small army of guest appearances are peppered throughout Jasta, including some sublime caterwauling from All That Remains' Phil Labonte (“Something You Should Know”), Lamb of God's Randy Blythe (“Enslaved, Dead or Depraved”), and As I Lay Dying's Tim Lambesis (“With a Resounding Voice”), as well as some signature, snaky guitar work from Zakk Wylde on the brutal “Fearless Must Endure.”
