Ja, ja, ich weiß, das das bei vielen Kopfschütteln hervorrufen wird. Die sind doch nicht psychedelisch! Ich finde das schon seit ihrer ersten CD/LP. Mit dem üblichen Schmock-Gerocke der Metaller-Szene oder dem Poser Stadion-Rock haben sie jedenfalls nichts zu tun, auch wenn sie so vermarktet werden. alie

Ihre psychdelischste Phase hatte Monster Magnet sicherlich am Anfang bis 1992. Gegründet wurde die Band 1990 von Dave Wynberg, John McBain und Tim Cronin. “Forget About Life, I’m High On Dope” war damals ihr Motto und das glaubt man ihnen auch. Der Sound war längst nicht so gesangs- und gitarren orientierter Space Metal den man heute kennt. Die Stücke waren länger, schräger, verfremdeter, verspielter aber immer mit mitreißender Karft und orgiastischen Triumphen.
Die Verbindung der Band nach Deutschland hat übringens Tradition! Die ersten Platten kamen bei Glitterhouse in Deutschland raus, vor! den amerikanischen Pressungen (der Prophet gilt nix im eigenen Lande..).
Spine of God ist auch ein echter Opus der psychedelic Geschichte, das sollte man mindestens

We can sincerely say that this is the best band in the World and MultiVerse, both of which will belong to Us someday. So there.

The first Dirty Americans album since parting ways with Roadrunner Records is finished and features Kid Rock keyboardist Jimmie Bones adding a very "Doors/Zepellin" vibe to the recordings.

"Black Feather" is available for a few weeks for free before its released.

Diese Single lohnt sich auch nochmal für die Psychedeliker. Heads explode, da ist der Name schon Programm. Mit von der Partie ein Stooges-Track 1970 und ein unveröffentlichtes Stück namens Leapin' Lizards. Alles zwar harter Stoff, aber für Metal ist es zu exotisch. Betti

This album is the highlight of the life of Monster Magnet, though it's not incredible. I picked it up myself for a cheap price and probably wouldn't have bought it otherwise. Yet, if hard rock is your cup of tea, this is something you'd probably enjoy. The best description I can come up with is the Beverly Hillbillies on steroids. Though I've never really felt the need to properly listen past track three, Space Lord. Space Lord and Powertrip (track 2) are the only songs that really grab my attention. Perhaps they shouldn't have placed them so early in the album. John Cheek

This is probably the best CD I've ever heard. Ever. It has renewed my faith that mindless pop and sappy love songs have not yet permeated every corner of the planet's collective soul.

I bought this CD based on the merits of 'Space Lord', the only song to get airplay in the US, I found myself completely engrossed in the complex musical themes and the unparalleled lyric concepts.

From 'Crop Circles' to 'Your Lies Become You' this CD has turned me into a true believer. Ginny Rivers
