- Cobras & Fire [Mastermind Redux]
- Artist: Monster Magnet
- Format: LP
- Release Date: 10/9/2015
Vinyl LP pressing. Dave Wyndorf and his henchmen seemingly had the time of their lives when they completely rearranged and boosted Last Patrol in 2014 and christened it Milking the Stars: A Re-imagining of Last Patrol! Now Monster Magnet go back even further to 2010 and their Mastermind album. Even if you know the album inside and out you won't be prepared in the slightest for the trip that is Cobras and Fire (The Mastermind Redux): just think of the beast Apocalypse Now turned into in it's Redux form. Familiar elements drift by and are swallowed whole by thundering psych orgies - Wyndorf often focuses on a singular song fragment and turns it into his ride to total Nirvana. Go look for your daily dose of average rock elsewhere: this is the mindfvck of the year!
