I am really looking forward to the Aalborg Metal Festival in November. Only one thing worries me slightly: Monster Magnet is the headliner. I can see it go two ways:
A. The US rockers pull out a bunny of the tophat and throw us a blistering show.
B. Monster Magnet goes all psychedelic on us and disappear in one big, boring
Now, why do I say something as harsh as that? Well, judging from the new album,
'Mastermind', there is little direction and no real songs to be expected from
the before-quite-cool Monster Magnet. The Doors is more of an inspiration than
Metallica, that's for sure. And I'm not buying it. It's going nowhere in my
humble opinion. Plain boring.
