Product description

Product Description

Fusing garage rock, progressive rock, heavy metal, punk and psychedelia Last Patrol is Monster Magnets tenth studio album following 2010s 'Mastermind' and a testament to everything they stand for. In addition to musical influences, the band has always been inspired by comic book, science fiction, horror movies, and B-movies by filmmakers such as Roger Gorman and Russ Myer. Last Patrol is a return to our roots in terms of vibe and recording style. Its full-on psychedelic space-rock with a 60s garage feel, recorded almost exclusively with vintage guitars, amps and effects in our hometown of Red Bank, NJ. The songs are a kind of Space-Noir, tales of cosmic revenge, peaking libidos, alienation and epic strangeness. Its a weird trip through the back alleys of a dark, retro-future, which not by coincidence very much resembles my own life (laughs). The lyrics arent fantasy really, rather a recounting of my musings on, observations of and general emotional reaction to my life and environment during a 1 week writing period in February of 2013. But I tend to use the vernacular and imagery of science fiction and surrealism to express myself and thats where these lyrics get trippy. Theres also our cover version of Donovans Three Kingfishers which I thought fit the mood of the album . - Dave Wyndorf.

The Background of a major health scare and some personel changes did not bode well for this release. In addition the last two Monster Magnet albums were in my opinion below par and the band seemed to have run out of things to say. All of which in consideration gives me great pleasure to report that this is their best album in quite some time. Crucially they have dropped the more straight forward hard rock approach and returned closer to their earlier sound which they perfected on Dopes to infinaty which i believe to be their best album.
The downside, and its only a minor one, is that its not hard to detect a slightly lower production budget and in places the songs would clearly benefit from a extra layer to give them the full on heavy space rock experience but overall this is still a very enjoyable album and their best since at least Monolithic Baby.
If purchasing then make sure you go for the special edition, the two bonus tracks are in good company with the first nine that make up the standard album.
In summary Monster Magnet are back, anyone who enjoyed their most succesfull years can buy with confidence as this is definately one of their better albums and also one of the best Heavy rock albums of 2013.

Last Patrol is the ninth full-length studio album by the legendary Red Bank New Jersey based Stoner Rock (and so, so much more) band Monster Magnet. It was released in October 2013 through Napalm Records and was produced by frontman Dave Wyndorf himself alongside Phil Caivano.

It is the band's first full-length album since Superjudge not to feature long time guitarist Ed Mundell, although long time fans will have noticed his absence from the past three year's worth of live dates. To be fair, Dave has done such a fantastic job of maintaining the signature Monster Magnet sound, vibe and attitude that this potentially critical loss is actually well compensated for. If you like what the band have done in the past this certainly won't send you running away in disgust.

The album doesn't really have a snappy elevator pitch like "the band's doomiest album," "the band's catchiest songs to date" or "the band's most experimental release yet" but there's clearly a reason why it's garnering so much positive attention from fans and critics alike. Give it a listen or twelve and let it get underneath your skin, there's a lot going on here and repeat listens allow it to fully reveal all of its many charms.

The songs are mostly long, hypnotic and trippy numbers that focus on repeating one riff (acoustic or electric) over and over again on a rolling wave of sound effects or solos, building and building up teasing the listener with their constant threats of flat-out exploding. This isn't so much a collection of easily digestible radio singles but rather a more considered and slow-burning affair.

....well then listen to the album!

As a life long magnet fan I'd rate this new album up with Dopes, powertrip, and monolithic baby (my personal favorites). From the first song you'll be hooked. Sound wise the band pretty much capture everything us fans love about them; huge riffs, amazing lyrics, trippy melodies. If this is a sign of things to come for the band, I cant wait! Great album artwork too.

There's always something about Dave Wyndorf's lyrics and the way he delivers them. A tongue in cheek retrospective on modern day living met up with highly expansive spaced-out guitar that takes the listener to another dimension. Since 'Spine Of God' I have followed this band and had been caught up with their mushroom induced rock. All nine albums have a class of their own and each deserve to be out there making their way through the labyrinth of this genre of rock music. They are the true ambassadors, worthy to their cause. If you are looking for this special album take takes you away from the confines of Earth, this is the one. Enjoy...

I have always loved everything they do, from the magnificent TAB and Spine of God to the last one Mastermind...Dave Wyndorf is a genius lyricist too....he's been likened to all the greats in rock and more some because of the way he rhymes...a lot of rappers compare him to what they do and he gets their respect too...he's a guy who uses his influences and makes them better...I would say that a lot of his albums are a bit different and maybe not always appealing to folk who like a particular sound but I love the fact the last one Mastermind was really heavy and dark and doom laden and this new one feels a bit more like Superjudge period...So in conclusion only space rock exists if Monster magnet are playing and invited to the party!!! Get your Dr Dre headphones on... turn the lights out...have a few drinks and turn it up!!!!...A Very Special Band....enjoy the genius of Dave Wyndorf...

I own all of Monster Magnet's CDs and as always I picked this bad boy up within a week of release. I came into the band mid-career, when they were at their commercial peak with Powertrip, so my initial love for the band was for their no-quarter-given heavy power chord songs that were a feature of their albums from Powertrip through to Four Way Diablo. This album is far more rootsy, and is one that longterm fans of the band have been waiting for. I'll admit that at first I found it harder to get into than their more commerical efforts because it's far more "space rock", but overall its a far more rewarding listening experience. Monster Magnet are one of those few bands that just don't put out bad albums. This album is just astonishingly good and stands up against anything they've done before. My personal favorite is Mindless Ones, a stomping hard rock track, but there really aren't any poor songs. I just wish there were a few more, as at nine tracks it looks - even if timewise it isn't - a little short. Monster Magnet suffer from appearing in the wrong era - if they had come out in the 70s Dave Wyndorf would be an international superstar in the vein of someone like Robert Plant, but because they came out after classic rock was kind of over they only ever briefly touched on commerical success. In a way that's great for the fans they do have, because MM are like a special little secret in the rock world that only a few people know about, and one of the few bands out there whose skills haven't been diminished by time. A classic. It could never have been anything less.
