monster magnet

Monster Magnet put the pedal to the Metal with 'Mindfucker', their eleventh studion album and today, 'Ejection', a smokin' hot, rocket fuelled version of former Hawkwind lead singer Robert Calvert's 'Ejection', a true 70s classic, is premiering right here on MetalTalk.

'Mindfucker' will be released on March 23rd via Napalm Records and it is different, a step forward and a step back at the same time to the almighty roots of hard rock music, kindled by the unpretentious Proto-punk era. The album has the potential to surprise and to whip up the love for the genre, while still giving the sludgies and stoner freaks exactly what they wish for in a new Monster Magnet album. Here's 'Ejection' for you...

Monster Magnet mainman Dave Wyndorf tells us all about the new album:

"'Mindfucker' is a fuzzed out, headbangin' celebration of hard rock and 21st century paranoia. Ten fuel injected, nitro burning tracks of fiery rock'n'roll and garage psych madness, all done Monster Magnet style.

"It's also an album that gets right to the point: the world is out of it's fucking mind and I'm livin' it... for better or worse. It's simple, really. In these crazy times I've been wanting to just drive my car at 100 miles per hour and howl, you know what I mean? So I wrote songs I can do that with. And with lyrics that don't deny the times we're living in.

"Feels good, feels right. Rock is alive, baby!"
