Editors’ Notes Monster Magnet is a stoner rock band from New Jersey with genuine roots in Hawkwind, Black Sabbath, and Iggy & The Stooges, making leader Dave Wyndorf's authority unquestionable. He lives and breathes this music, and it shows. There are no half-steps here. The opening Stooges-like menace of "Crop Circle" is earth-rattling, and things only get crazier from there. "Powertrip," "Space Lord," and "3rd Eye Landslide" are solid rock/punk numbers with massive guitar sounds that make them easy shots for the arena. "See You in Hell" tells a creepy story based in truth, with a garage-rock organ that's pure psychedelia. "Baby Götterdämerung" throws in heavily tremoloed guitar for a psychedelic ballad. "Temple of Your Dreams" evokes the warrior side of heavy metal. "Tractor," an older MM song, is a beautifully dirty track that wallows in sludge. "19 Witches" throws in spaghetti western guitar. The band sounds both heavy and like it's having fun. Powertrip is a stone classic.
