AUDIO: Monster Magnet stream Cobras And Fire album ahead of release

Monster Magnet are streaming their forthcoming album, “Cobras And Fire (The Mastermind Redux)”, in full ahead of its release on October 9.

The project sees the New Jersey band overhaul their 2010 album, “Mastermind”, with revamped instrumentation including organ, piano and sitars…following the work they did with 2013’s “Last Patrol” for its reissue as “Milking The Stars: A Re-imagining Of Last Patrol.”

"With Cobras And Fire I wanted to present these songs in a much stranger and dirtier atmosphere,” says frontman Dave Wyndorf. “Less ‘classic rock’ and more... well, I'd guess I'd call it a deranged fusion of garage-psych, fuzz punk and movie soundtrack music.

“All in all I call this the weirdest Monster Magnet yet, and that's a good thing! I hope you like it! Rock on!"

2010’s “Mastermind” marked the final album with lead guitarist and long-term member Ed Mundell.

The original project delivered the group their first US chart appearance on the Billboard 200 over 3 albums in 9 years.
