Hells yeah!

Quote :
In celebration of the record's impending release, the band has re-launched its web site: MonsterMagnet.net. Focused around the late October worldwide release of "Mastermind", the re-launch also serves as the world premiere of the new album's cover artwork, designed by Invisible Creature (WOLFMOTHER, CHRIS CORNELL, FOO FIGHTERS).

"I'm extremely proud of this new album," says MONSTER MAGNET frontman Dave Wyndorf.
"It's been an amazing process, the songs are exactly what I wanted
them to be, and I'm proud to begin presenting this new phase of the band
on our new website."

"Mastermind" track listing:

01. Hallucination Bomb
02. Bored With Sorcery
03. Dig That Hole
04. Gods and Punks
05. The Titan Who Cried Like A Baby
06. Mastermind
07. 100 Million Miles
08. Perish In Fire
09. Time Machine
10. When The Planes Fall From The Sky
11. Ghost Story
12. All Outta Nothin'

Speaking to Metal Injection at this past April's Revolver Golden Gods Awards in downtown Los Angeles, guitarist Ed Mundell said about the new CD's musical direction, "It's more like space rock and THE STOOGES. There's no hit singles — it's all just rocking, lots of crazy effects. And Dave's singing better than ever. Lots of guitars. Four weeks of tracking guitars — nothing but guitars."

MONSTER MAGNET's last CD, "4-Way Diablo", entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 81. The album, which was also produced by Hyde and featured a cover version of THE ROLLING STONES' "2,000 Light Years from Home", landed on the Swedish chart at No. 51. It sold 1,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release.

More from Dave:

Quote :
Magnet songwriter and front man, Dave Wyndorf, describes "Mastermind":

"It's a big, beefy ball of demented anthems and power rock." He says with enthusiasm.

"The music itself is exaggerated and muscular. Like classic rock gone insane! Giant hooks, giant sounds. The rockers are direct and intense. The ballads, trippy and strange. It's guitar heaven."

And the lyrics? Wyndorf laughs. "Well, the lyrics read like a fever-dream of life in the 21st century. Cynicism, optimism, satire, sex, deluded fantasies and dead-on reality. They're all here – sometimes even in the same song!"

"In my world, images, information and emotions tend to intertwine. I’ll describe the smallest details of my personal life in crazy, cinematic terms. When I write, the words play out in my mind like scenes from a movie and that's the vibe I tried to capture on "Mastermind" – rapid-fire emotion. What can I say? I'm having a weird life and I have to write it down that way."

"In the end though," says Dave, "Mastermind ROCKS, and that's what's most important."

I was aware of these guys around the time of Powertrip, but I became an instant fan when I saw them open for Marilyn Manson, which if I had to guess was probably around the release of God Says No. At the time, grunge, numetal, alternative, etc. were all the rage and these guys seemingly stepped out of Mr. Peabody's Wayback Machine and just rocked my socks off.

They tour with Manson? Odd. Haha. But yeah, they're fantastic. And they're outstanding live.

I wonder if Dave is still drug free. He used to be ripped, but he got a bit tubby after he supposedly got sober. Hopefully he's still off the sauce. Fat and sober is probably better. Haha.

I could be mistaken, but if I remember correctly, they were a last minute addition after Hole dropped off the tour. I don't think they were on the original bill.

Early Monster Magnet through Dopes To Infinity is excellent innovative stoner metal. They and Kyuss were the leaders in the early stoner metal movement. Monster Magnet up until 1998's Powertrip had a major Hawkwind/Psychedelic/Space Rock sound that was dominant in their songwriting. They haven't been the same band musically since.

Yup. From what I found on-line, the tour was from back in 1999 and the line-up was MM/Hole/Manson. Hole dropped out after Marilyn made some comments about Courtney Love. I think someone else took the 2nd slot, but I can't remember who it was.

Well, they've tried some different things on every album. They haven't released a bad one yet, not even close.

Man, I got gypped! I saw Chemlab with Nudeswirl and White Zombie, and they sucked. Nudeswirl, though, instantly became a favorite of mine that night. Amazing band.

And Monster Voodoo Machine are fantastic as well.

Sounds cool!

Quote :
According to U.K.'s Rock Sound, MONSTER MAGNET mainman Dave Wyndorf has launched his own record label dubbed Studio 13. Although the imprint will initially focus on releasing seven-inch singles and accompanying download cards featuring MONSTER MAGNET-related music, the label will eventually consider adding other artists to its roster.

"Right now it's not about making tons of money; it's making a cool little place where I can put out my music," said Wyndorf. "In the land between demos and giant finished rock records, there is a cool area, an area where the ideas are fresh and mistakes are there but they are good mistakes. There is really something special about material that is fresh out of the head onto a tape machine and right out the door."

Studio 13's first release — to be made available on the band's forthcoming European tour — will be a reworked version of "Superjudge" — the title track of MONSTER MAGNET's 1993 album — and a song called "She Digs That Hole", which Dave describes as a "demented psychedelic love song about a gypsy women who picks up girls for the band to Smurf."

They are generally categorized as a stoner metal band. The earlier material fit more in that mold I think. Their later stuff is more like 70's rock or metal.

Loud fuzzy guitars, some well-placed Deep Purple-esqe organ, strong, clear vocals and songs about cars, chicks, space ships, comic books, etc.
