Frontman and MONSTER MAGNET mastermind Dave Wyndorf checked in with his thoughts about Last Patrol:
“Last Patrol is a return to our roots in terms of vibe and recording style. It’s full-on psychedelic space-rock with a 60’s 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. It’s 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 aren’t 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 that’s where these lyrics get trippy. There’s also our cover version of Donovan’s “Three Kingfishers” which I thought fit the mood of the album.”
“Last Patrol was produced by Phil Caivano and myself with an effort to bring a home grown feel to the whole affair. We had been doing smaller projects out of Phil’s “Studio 13″ recording space and I really felt comfortable there so it was the natural choice on where to record the next full-scale Monster Magnet album. Phil and I grew up together and have a shared love of some very particular vintage music and styles. And everybody in the band played their asses off on this one.”
Today the first song from Last Patrol is receiving its exclusive premiere courtesy of The Obelisk. Check out the song entitled “The Duke (Of Supernature)” HERE.

Coldspell are poised to release their exciting new album. Based in the north of Sweden they were formed in 2005 by guitarist and songwriter Michael Larsson, who was previously with the band R.A.W., a band that recorded two albums in the 90’s with members from Dalton and Kicken (Poodles) on drums. Together with four other experienced musicians the band Coldspell blasted onto the scene with their own brand of hard rock. They first took the world by storm with their “Infinate Stargaze” release (ESM184), a recording that draws influences from a mixture of everything they grew up with from the groove of the 70’s to the choruses and melodies of the 80’s, mixed with the raw and naked excitement of the 90’s, not forgetting the production expertise of the millennium.
Coldspell’s debut CD has already created a stir in rock circles and the album received stunning reviews all over the world and was on several album “top lists” for 2009 and album of the year at rockrealms.com (category “heavy, hard and melodic rock”).
Two years later and a brand new release “Out from the Cold” was put out to an eager audience, once again mixed by Tommy Hansen in Denmark, Tommy of course having previously worked with Helloween, TNT, Pretty Maids, Jorn and Pagan’s Mind. Well, why change a winning formula?! .
Its now 2013 and Coldspell have been working hard on a new recording, entitled “Frozen Paradise”, once again with Tommy Hansen at the mixing desk. This is an unbelievable recording and the band have taken it one step further and made an album that surpasses all they have done. Great new songs like “Paradise”, “Goin all the way” and “On the run” are just such examples of their excellence. Razor sharp riffs, solid rhythms and great choruses are the order of the day, this is an album we have all been eagerly awaiting and no-one will be disappointed.

1. Paradise 5:20
2. Angel of the World 4:09

MODERN SUPERSTAR has revealed the artwork and track listing for their upcoming August release ‘Rise Above’. A bit of a departure from their previous sound and headed in a new direction, ‘Rise Above’ features new vocalist Chris ‘The Kid’ Nichols.
“There were some inevitable changes in the band and we decided to roll with it and go 4-piece. There is always some type of adversity in this band but we move forward and ‘Rise Above’ Chris came in and just killed it. The changes have really been for the better in regards to the band. There is probably a good documentary some where in here, LOL.” says bassist Mike Mackey
MODERN SUPERSTAR will be heading out on a support tour with the KILLER DWARFS beginning August 31. For more information checkout www.officialmodernsuperstar.com
