Earlier this year, Newsted, the new project of former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted, treated metal fans to their aptly titled debut EP, Metal. On August 6th, they'll release their full-length follow-up, Heavy Metal Music, on Chophouse Records and Collective Sounds. Now you can take an exclusive first listen to the album cut "Ampossible," a chugging, charging track that features some scorching guitarwork from Jessie Farnsworth and Newsted's pummeling bass (with one particularly Lemmy-like breakdown).
"'Ampossible' was initially composed as a warm-up instrumental song in the Chophouse in January 2013," Newsted tells Rolling Stone. "It's a hyper-morphed take on the original TV theme song from the 1960s Mission: Impossible – a childhood favorite."
