The Atomic Bitchwax


The Atomic Bitchwax originated being a side project of Monster Magnet lead guitarist Ed Mundell, ex-Godspeed bassist/vocalist Chris Kosnik, and drummer Keith Ackerman. All three of these were at that time veterans from the thriving NJ stoner rock picture, and, after nearly seven many years of jamming within their free time, the trio finally discovered time and energy to record and discharge their self-titled debut record in the summertime of 1999. Focusing on high-octane, ’70s-structured hard rock and roll infused with stabs of space rock and roll and psychedelia, and seen as a Mundell’s explosive, Tommy Bolin-inspired electric guitar heroics, Bitchwax’s debut stunned retro-rock supporters with its unforeseen brilliance, but their indie label, MIA, instantly went of business hardly a year afterwards.

The record was well received and led to substantial touring, including halts throughout European countries. Monster Magnet drummer Bob Pantella changed Ackerman in 2007 and made an appearance within the band’s 4th full-length, Tabs4. Released in 2011, THE NEIGHBORHOOD Fuzz contains one nonstop monitor that lasted for over 40 moments and consisted mainly of the slew of rude, relentless acoustic guitar riffs. The music group continued on much touring circuit for another couple of years, including even more international looks. In 2013 Kosnik became a member of on like a full-time person in Monster Magnet, also splitting his time taken between them as well as the Atomic Bitchwax’s progressively effective touring schedules. The music group released sixth recording Gravitron within the springtime of 2015.
