Haha, what a far-out cover! I'm getting Kraftwerk-vibes by those robot-looking faces and those electricity symbols.January 10, 2014 at 17:17 #25703deusvlcParticipantQuote:More info a bit later, but the LP edition will include a CD.

"hey kim, could you make another ugly cover for our next album, might be an amalgam of child of the future and heavy metal fruit with some catchy hot iconography?"
let's wait for the whole artwork. so far, none was disappointing.
ok, maybe the early ones, rwIV and barracuda.January 12, 2014 at 16:32 #25706

From the link superstooka linked in the other thread
!!! 8OQuote:Few things in life offer continuity these days apart from ridiculous politics, tax increases and global warming. And yes, like every year itâ€™s once again time for a new album from our favorite Norwegian sound wizards. Pregnant with another batch of great tunes, â€œBehind The Sunâ€ is the logical continuation of a musical journey that began with â€œThe Death Defying Unicornâ€ in 2012 and was built on by the â€œStill Life with Eggplantâ€ album in 2013 with the skilled help of Reine Fiske (Dungen, The Amazing) from Sweden. The vinyl version has three sides of music and an etching on Side 1. In fact, there might be more than meets the eye on that side, but we arenâ€™t telling. The first record of the set is on black vinyl, the second on white. Two videos will be available to help promote this album: one teaser video which will be released shortly and a full-length clip which will be ready before release date. The release will be followed by a European tour in May and June 2014. And 2014 also marks 25 years of Motorpsycho and 20 years of Stickman Records!
We wonâ€™t bore you with literary repetitions but will allow the music and the boys to speak for themselves:
Once again introducing The Four Norsemen of the Rock/Avant:
HMR â€“ Snahisgod
BS -The ThunderTrÃ¸nder
KK – The Hammer of the Gods
RF – the mercenary Psychedelic Half-breed
…in a tale of treachery & greed, as well as inspirational, inhuman self-sacrifice: "Behind The Sun" [a ThunderTrÃ¸nder Production!].
…One day in the 25th year of the Motorpsychodelic Union, the forces of D/Numbness were finally vanquished. Once again the intergalactic Four Norsemen of the Rock/Avant could fly their veg zeppelin unchallenged across the solar plains, their mission complete and the righteous deed done! In their tense alliances with the other rock-o-centric armies of the plains, the Band of Four had had to sacrifice more than they liked, but now – ultimately triumphant at the end of the longest battle – they saw that it indeed had been worth all the unpleasant childish vying for position and all the compromises that so had hurt their pride – for on this day the battle was won, and victory was finally theirs! â€¦ it had been a long war. The sickeningly precise Choreographolytes with their dâ€™Twerked attack formations, in their unholy union with the s-Elfies in their posed perfection…the enemy was a powerful one. The troubles – as always – stemmed from Artifice and Glitz, the twins of terror. They had spawned the deadening, self-gratifying effects of dâ€™Twerk and the narcotic, emotional stranglehold of the s-Elfie, and these evils combined seemed to hold a sway over the younglings that nulled the effects that the glorious keening of the Atonians and the mighty friendly fog of the Weedians once brought to the table. What once had seemed so self-evident, so obvious and righteous, now met with seemingly ever-increasing apathy and indifference amongst the populace. It didnâ€™t seem glitzy enough for the proles anymore, and a number of younger citizens had even succumbed fully to the lure of the enemy and turned away for good. Times were indeed changing, and as the Rock/Avant came under increasingly bitter attack from the mindless NumNum minions of Artifice in all their different guises, the pressure on the defenders of the faith increased. D-/Numbness was a tough enemy, but The Norsemen were there to fly the freak flag of the Rock/Avant. They would fight till deafness tore them apart and care till their last breath – they would never surrender! â€¦for still they held sway, and on this day at least – somewhere Behind The Sun – they were triumphant!January 13, 2014 at 19:06 #25709
8O indeed.January 13, 2014 at 19:52 #25710otherdemonParticipant
Wee, first music-video since Serpentine! Hopefully a cool one…
That "story" is simply hilarious :lol:January 13, 2014 at 20:19 #25711
D'Twerked and s-Elfies… I love it! Is that something Bent wrote?January 13, 2014 at 21:23 #25712ThorEgilParticipant
Nah, must be their biographer Bob le Bad.January 14, 2014 at 09:55 #25713mefistoParticipant
Motorpsycho turns sci fi Manowar, or just turns insane… :roll:January 14, 2014 at 10:38 #25714Quote:Motorpsycho turns sci fi Manowar
now THAT would be great!
But aren't they already? Since HMF and the Unicorn, with a good barrel of humour.January 14, 2014 at 10:39 #25715Quote:Nah, must be their biographer Bob le Bad.
going out on a limb but still possible.
