This mix was not meant to be a proper mix of how loud the bass guitar SHOULD be on the album. The intent of this video was to show what the bass guitar sounds like in relation to the album audio, that we all have heard before. Since nobody had really heard much, or any, of the bass guitar in this song before, I thought it would be something people would enjoy hearing.

This was never meant to be a version of the song that you would download as an mp3 and play on your iPod (or whatever you've got). Its purpose was for comparison. I could just put up the bass track alone, but I think it means more with the album audio there to compare it to.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it!


This is the original studio recording of Blackened with Jason Newsted's actual bass track re-dubbed at a MUCH higher level.

Two of the tracks from ...And Justice For All have been released as downloadable content for the band simulation game, Rock Band. I managed to [mostly] isolate the bass from those songs, and dubbed it over untouched album versions of the songs. The end result is finally, after nearly 20 years, being able to hear some of AJFA complete with Jason's bass CLEARLY audible in the mix.

I'm actually a little surprised that nobody has done this, yet. At least, I haven't been able to find anything related to it, yet.

I found the picture of the altered cover "...And Justice For JASON" using Google image search. I know there is already an entire version of the album entitled that, in which some guy recorded himself playing bass over the album, but I thought the name sounded appropriate for this.
