Last Patrol (Napalm Records)
release date: 10/1/2013
by Mike Delano
Some bands are so inconsistent (Megadeth jumps to mind) that when they release a new song, it's about 50/50 whether it's gonna be a classic or a complete train wreck. Monster Magnet are much more consistent -- even if their new stuff isn't as world-beatingly awesome as the stuff from their glory days, it's guaranteed to be way more badass than most new rock 'n' roll. So it's definitely a bonus that "The Duke (Of Supernature)" is almost as awesome as their best stuff. It's riding on a mellow groove, which gives Dave room to vamp, and it sparks up fond memories of "Blow 'Em Off" and "Your Lies Become You." The Bull God is strong with this one.
This is not a review, really, just a lil preview blurb. See more previews here.
