Monster Magnet Announce Cobras And Fire (The Mastermind Redux)

(hennemusic) Monster Magnet will release "Cobras And Fire (The Mastermind Redux)", on October 2. The project sees the band present a sonic overhaul their 2010 album, "Mastermind", much as they did when they completely rearranged and boosted 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.

"It's almost completely re-recorded (with the bulk of the guitar and bass playing by co-producer Phil Caivano) and as in Milking The Stars I've added organ, piano, sitars and more to flesh out a completely new sound for these tunes.

"There's also a Hawkwind/Pink Fairies inspired cover version of The Temptations 1969 classic 'Ball Of Confusion' with background vocals by Monster Magnet co-founder and Rib Eye Bros. frontman Tim Cronin. Plus an 8-minute, tripped out sonic adventure entitled 'I Live Behind The Paradise Machine' specially created by mixer extraordinaire Evil Joe Barresi. Joe is at his best here, seamlessly integrating elements from several Magnet songs into a new, stand alone composition." Read more here.
