Biography

Described as a “mind-expansion team” by The New York Times, New Jersey’s MONSTER MAGNET is hands down one of the most explosive and exciting U.S. rock bands of the last two decades. The band will release its long-awaited new album “Mastermind“ this October.

"It's a big, beefy ball of demented anthems and power rock," says MAGNET frontman Dave ... Read more in Amazon's Monster Magnet Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Praise to the lords 5 Nov 2007
Format:Audio CD
What can be said, there is only one word for this GOLD. Having been a fan since Dopes to Infinity this is another great album. So we had to wait a year, who cares when its an album this good. For me 'Cyclone' is the stand out track from a album that shows there is alot of life left in this band. A must have for any fan of this style of music. Long live the stoner kings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Monster Magnet - 4-Way Diablo 23 Jan 2013
By Gentlegiantprog TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Monster Magnet's 2007 4-Way Diablo album has something of a bad reputation among a large section of the band's fans. Its often a toss up as to whether this, or the album which preceded it, is considered the band's worst ever album.

At the same time however, it was considered by a few fans and critics as more of a return to their early sound. That's not exactly 100% accurate in my opinion, there are certainly a few songs on here like `Cyclone' and their cover of The Rolling Stone's `2000 Lightyears From Home' that have a psychedelic touch to them, but the majority of the album is smooth, perfectly formed hard rock music just as it was on the equally disliked Monolithic Baby album.

At the end of the day, music is all about personal opinion, but I feel that maybe some people may dislike this album more out of its musical direction than the actual quality of the music on the disc. If you are the sort of fan who thinks that the band sold out after Spine Of God, or think the band have been going downhill generally, then this probably isn't going to blow your mind.

In my personal opinion however, I think this is a marvelous record. I like all the different eras of Monster Magnet, and don't think they've ever made a dull record. I've listened to this album dozens and dozens of times, and it has added a few songs to my list of all time Monster Magnet favourites.

The absolutely catchy and exciting `Wall Of Fire,' the dour and moody `Little Bag Of Gloom' and the aforementioned `Cyclone' are all fantastic songs, that display Dave Wyndorf's brilliant voice, lyrics and general personality. Even if you skip the record, you should probably check those songs out on their own.

In my humble opinion, this latest effort from Dave Wyndorf and crew is every bit as potent as their 'Monolithic Baby' and 'Powertrip' titles. Just shows how much we can depend on Monster Magnet to pen out such killer 'heavy space' rock. Tunes here that had me giving this CD many spins were the in-your-face "Wall Of Fire", "You're Alive", "Cyclops", they good Stones cover "2000 Light Years From Home", the (almost) ballad {?} "I'm Calling You" and the total *ss-kicking "A Thousand Years". Line-up: Dave Wyndorf-guitar & vocals, Ed Mundell-guitar, Jim Baglino-bass and Bob Pantella-drums. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Monster Magnet 5 Nov 2007
By James VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
MONSTER MAGNET are back after a three year hiatus from song writing with their latest album '4-Way Diablo'. Their last release 'Monolithic Baby!' was below par and crossed the thin line between psychedelic groove and something to put you to sleep. On another note, kudos to whoever thought up the cover art, as it's an original and inspired design.

Ten years have passed since the run away success of 'Space Lord' from the 'Powertrip' album and you could not be blamed from thinking this is a band on the way out. Thankfully there are still signs of life and '4-Way Diablo' is the proof of it. The album kicks off with the title track '4-Way Diablo' which draws you straight in with a catchy guitar riff courtesy of Ed Mundell, an upbeat chorus and a sweet little guitar solo towards the end. The next track 'Wall Of Fire' keeps the momentum going well as does 'You're Alive', although you do have to get past wondering what the hell Dave Wyndorf (guitars/vocals) is on about (I guess what's stoner rock for you) and an irritating chorus that grates after awhile. Yet this track is still annoyingly likable.

Before you are left thinking where has the stoner rock gone? We get a taste of some old school MONSTER MAGNET with tracks like 'Blow Your Mind' and 'Cyclone' which have a spaced out feel to them. The band has made the cover of the ROLLING STONES song '2000 Light Years From Home' their own giving the track a moody edge whilst the reverb Wyndorf uses gives the track a very mellow feel. Is this a return to the 'Dopes To Infinity' days? Well, maybe not quite but not a bad stab at it.

Unfortunately from here on the album does start to waiver with only a small reprieve in the form of the ninth track 'Solid Gold'.

Originally due for release over a year ago until Dave Wyndorf swallowed a bottle of elephant tranquilizers during a plane trip!!

Fortunately he recovered in hospital and at last here is the fruit of his labours another gold plated high octane stoner rock n roll release from the band that invented the genre 'stoner rock'.

Standout numbers include the title track, a garage punk rock sixties influenced song, followed by the foot stomping Wall of Fire leading into the best song on the album You're Alive which has Hit Single written all over it. Things slow down a tad with Blow Your Mind, the very trippy Cyclone & even trippier cover of the Rolling Stones song 2000 Light Years From Home, perfect for headphones and chilling out to.

The remainder of the album includes the obligotory stripped down number or two that you'll always find on a Monster Magnet release ever since the Superjudge album but intersperced with the upbeat rockers Solid Gold and Slap In The Face.

Some say it's the best release since Powertrip, while others say it's the best release since the last album!!!

One things for sure if your a Magnet fan this is a must buy!!!
