Sunday Metal – Songs of My Youth – Monster Magnet

I like giving “Sunday Metal” a theme, and so this theme is “Songs of My Youth”. I found heavy metal as a teenager and it’s always been a big part of my life. I wanted to highlight some songs that stand out from those youthful days.

I can’t recall the exact song or moment that enamoured me to Monster Magnet. I do recall seeing their “Spine of God” album in the WXJM library, but it didn’t move me. I did an interview with Dave Wyndorf, which was pretty cool. But I think it was hearing “Twin Earth” off Superjudge that really did it for me.

The heaviness, the fuzz, the psychedelia. “Twin Earth” was the first single, but really the whole “Superjudge” album was awesome to me. I mean “Cage Around the Sun”… the storytelling, the drug-induced trip that Dave was on… it was a new musical adventure to me. “Stoner Rock” became a thing for me.
