This week get ready for a double dose of muscle. The compare/contrast feature will be Black Label Society and Monster Magnet. Two bands that play metal that can be aptly described as testosterone filled muscle rock.
I find many similarities between these two bands. Sometimes Monster Magnet veer toward psychedelic outer space while Black Label Society (Zakk Wylde) go straight for the highway to hell. For the most part, they cross paths in many ways on their fat riff filled journey out of Jersey. Yeah, Monster Magnet and Zakk Wylde all hail from New Jersey, the Garden State. Anecdotally, I have learned that both bands are popular in the homosexual “bear” community. Hmmm…must be that super macho sound and attitude.
Listen to the Fuzz Factory. Thursday night from 8-10 PM (EST) on SCAD-Atlanta Radio (www.scadatlantaradio.org).
Here’s a taste of both bands:
