New Jersey stoner rock veterans Monster Magnet have announced the release of their 8th studio album, “Mastermind”, scheduled for October on Napalm Records. The band signed with Napalm Records in November, 2009. This will be their first release on that label.
Monster Magnet‘s last studio album was “4-Way Diablo” which was released in 2007.

Monster Magnet songwriter and front man, Dave Wyndorf, describes “Mastermind”:
“It’s a big, beefy ball of demented anthems and power rock,” he says with enthusiasm.
“The music itself is exaggerated and muscular. Like classic rock gone insane! Giant hooks, giant sounds. The rockers are direct and intense. The ballads, trippy and strange. It’s guitar heaven.”
And the lyrics? Wyndorf laughs. “Well, the lyrics read like a fever-dream of life in the 21st century. Cynicism, optimism, satire, sex, deluded fantasies and dead-on reality. They’re all here – sometimes even in the same song!”
“In my world, images, information and emotions tend to intertwine. I’ll describe the smallest details of my personal life in crazy, cinematic terms. When I write, the words play out in my mind like scenes from a movie and that’s the vibe I tried to capture on “Mastermind” – rapid-fire emotion. What can I say? I’m having a weird life and I have to write it down that way.”
“In the end though,” says Dave, “Mastermind ROCKS, and that’s what’s most important.”
