Newsted Unveil ‘Above All’ Lyric Video
As the release date for their debut full-length draws near, Newsted have revealed the lyric video for the song ‘Above All’ (watch above). It’s from their album ‘Heavy Metal Music,’ which will be unleashed Aug. 6.
In a recent chat with Legendary Rock Interviews, frontman Jason Newsted talked about the album. “Well, it’s finished and delivered, an hour’s worth of ‘Heavy Metal Music.’ There will also be a couple of bonus tracks to go to Japan and other regions, however that works but it will all be heavy metal music in the sense that there’s no ballads, it’s not all fast but it is all heavy.”
The lyric video for ‘Above All’ is quite a visual clip, displaying a sludgy muddy setting with a mysterious figure trying to break free of his chains. The song itself is a scorching metal tune, but at the same time it’s thoroughly drenched in melody.
Newsted had to temporarily drop off Gigantour after doctors told Jason he needed time to recover from walking pneumonia. They hope to make their return to the bill on July 29 in Abbotsford, British Columbia.
