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 Monster Magnet - Spine Of God 30 Jan 2012
By Gentlegiantprog TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
New Jersey's Monster Magnet are one of the pioneering names in Stoner Rock and their 1991(Germany)/1992(USA) debut studio album Spine Of God was one of the first ever commercially available albums in the genre.

Beyond simply being released early, Spine Of God is a hugely influential and well-respected album that no Monster Magnet fan should be without. Although the production isn't as strong as their following albums, stylistically the album feels almost like a lost album from the 70s, which is supported by the raw production in addition to the bands mixing of Classic, Space, Prog and Psychedelic rock stylings.

The Psychedelic influences in particular are really strong, more so than on any of the band's subsequent releases. The music is hypnotic, layered and is awash with numerous effects and consequently the sound is as hazy and drugged-out as Dave himself purports to be in the lyrics.

Dave Wyndorf's strong voice and impressive vocal range is what most Monster Magnet fans find appealing and the strange and amusing lyrics are interesting as always, even at this early stage in their career.

Highlights include The Title Track, which comes across in the same dark foreboding psychedelic mood as Pink Floyd's `Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun' only filtered through a 1990s perspective as well as `Sin's A Good Man's Brother,' which is a Grand Funk Railroad cover song and the harder rocking `Snake Dance,' which sounds somewhat of a taster of things to come for the band's next album SuperJudge.

Overall, Spine Of God is a genre classic and if you like Monster Magnet or indeed any other bands on the Stoner/Desert Rock end of the spectrum such as Sleep, Kyuss, Fu Manchu, Clutch, Sheavy, Dozer or Orange Goblin, then it really is something that you ought to consider trying out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tantric stoner earphoria 15 Jun 2006
By DaniJ
Format:Audio CD
Another great (early) album from the Monster Magnet. No doubt all true Monster Magnet fans have this already but if all you've heard of Wyndorf and Co's music is "Powertrip" - you may well be surprised with what is on offer in "Spine of God".

"Ozium" is excellent and almost trance inducing as is "Black Mastermind".

This and "God Says No" are tied for the "my favorite Monster Magnet album" award, no mean feat considering the bands excellent track record (pun unintended).

5.0 out of 5 stars Set the bar very high 1 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
I felt compelled to write a review for this most wonderful of albums after I noticed that there were only four stars next to it and all other MM albums have five. Surely some mistake: the band's first proper full-length work (discounting the truly awful 'Tab') is a masterpiece. Not blazingly metallic like 'Powertrip' or as hazily gorgeous as 'Dopes to Infinity', 'Spine of God's strength lies in it's more earthy, low-budget feel. This is Monster Magnet sounding like they actually are in the Seventies, rather than a Nineties band trying to hark back to that era. From the opening drum roll of the trippy 'Pill Shovel' to the feedback-strewn fade-out of the brilliant 'Ozium', this is full-on Space Rock of the absolute highest order. The title track is a towering monster worthy of Sabbath, 'Medicine' and 'Snake Dance' roar out of the speakers with blistering energy and the 'Zodiac Lung' is a twisted ballad par excellence. All MM albums have their worth (except the aforementioned 'Tab'), but 'Spine...' set the template for the band's genius. Easily superior to the disappointing 'Monolithic Baby' and the somewhat flaccid 'Superjudge', 'Spine of God' is an absolutely essential purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums of all time 31 Dec 2006
By Stamper
Format:Audio CD
This album is in my opinion the greatest Monster Magnet album of all time and certainly one of my favourite and most listened to albums. The tracks are less commercial than on later albums and much better crafted than on the later Tab EP. It is an album that I can listen to over and over again without getting bored. There isn't a single poor track on the album and each track fits well with the next to make a superb whole. With a unique sound unlike any other, it has depth, heaviness, musicality and soul. Why this album hasn't gained the credit it duly deserves is completely beyond me for it is a true masterpiece. My thanks to Monster Magnet for many hours of intense listening pleasure.
