Echobrain is an American musical group. It initially drew attention as the first offering from bassist Jason Newsted after he left Metallica. The group formed in 2000 after Newsted, Sagrafena and Donkin having close contact throughout the 90's after they met at a Super Bowl party at Jason in 1995. At a road trip to Baja, Mexico, Sagrafena and Donkin recorded some rough demos that, when they came home, eventually caught Jason's attention. Jason then offered them to help them out on bass and assist their songwriting. In May 2000, they entered a studio to record the demos more professional, with help from several musicians including Kirk Hammett of Metallica, and Jim Martin, previous Faith No More guitarist.
