Heavy metal sideman Jason Newsted has been slinging the bass since the early '80s for bands like Voivod, Flotsam and Jetsam, and of course, Metallica. This year, he stepped out on his own under the name Newsted, joined by fellow metal soldiers like Mike Mushok (Staind) and Jesus Mendez Jr. (Metallica, EchoBrain). AllMusic editor Gregory Heaney said the band's debut EP, Metal, released in January, "(took) a look back at the good old days of classic thrash metal", making a "promising opening shot from a heavy metal veteran (that) should leave fans of his other projects hungry for more". Now the time for more has come, as first-time full-length Heavy Metal Music arrives Tuesday -- and best of all, you can win it from us!

Three lucky winners will get a vinyl edition of Heavy Metal Music, along with a poster. Wanna get in the mix?
