    A little more info from Rune Grammofon about the new album

    [SPOILER ALERT]

    One would think that after the “Gullvåg Trilogy” - two double and a single album in a mere three years - this ultra productive trio might be in need of a break of sorts... but on the other hand, riding a golden wave like never before in their 30+ year existence, why stop now? Especially when constantly upping their own quality standards.
    The bulk of the album was recorded in France back before the pandemic, but was added to, expanded, tweaked and eventually finished last year. The initial idea was to collect big riffs on one album and do a pure hard rock record, but the objective changed along the way as they rediscovered their folkish bent and how this lighter touch gave it all a nice contrast. That said, the main musical thrust is pretty full-on, even by Motorpsycho standards.

    Kingdom of Oblivion was mixed by Andrew Scheps and produced by Bent Sæther.
    Reine Fiske guests on several tracks.

    Cover art is by Sverre Malling and cover design is by Håvard Gjelseth.

    The Transmutation of Cosmoctopus Lurker has to be a strong
    contender for most pretentious MP song title ever

    Apart from that, high hopes as usual for another hi quality
    Motorpsychodelic Trip.

    When I saw the title The United Debased I remembered the band had played that and another new track at gigs last year. The other was titled The Hornet. I wonder what happened to that - maybe the title changed.

    In any case, 12 new tracks should provide an interesting assortment to get stuck into. Can't wait.

    I see they moved from russian modernism to belgian surrealism.
    Love that photo. They look so... adult.

    @fco - Hey, where did that image come from? I love it! And I'm getting increasingly excited about this album, but still over a month to wait! Where's the "single" already?

    I am going to hope this is just a technical issue. Posted links many times before. Never a problem.

    Is Bent sporting the old short LTEC/IALC era cut again or is it all cramped under the melon hat? Anyway, 12 tracks sounds like a rather versatile ride to me.

    @marc - No worries, still hairy as ever. Here's from yesterdays report in adressa.no about the new Grevene langs record label.

    You need a subscription to read it, but I believe you should be able to see the picture.

    from EMP:

    Mit dem scheppernd und knarzend vorwärts marschierenden, dabei erstaunlich melodischen „The warning, Pt. 1 & 2” stellen die Herrschaften aus Trondheim mal wieder spielend unter Beweis, wer die Könige des psychedelischen Noise-Hardrocks sind. Als ob wir das nicht alle längst wüssten. Um ihr Statement aber noch zu untermauern legen Motorpsycho mit dem majestätischen Titeltrack nach, der dann überraschend in das akustische, etwas an den Westcoast-Sound von Crosby, Stills & Nash erinnernde und mindestens ebenso geniale „Lady May 1” übergeht. Weitere Highlights eines atmosphärisch stimmigen, dabei immens abwechslungsreichen Longplayers mit viel Spät-Sixties- beziehungswiese Früh-Seventies-Feeling und doch von zeitlloser Schönheit gesegnet, sind das ebenso deftig riff-beladene, wie nachdenkliche „The united debased”, das düster-verspielte „The watcher”, das fast neunminütige, proggig anmutende Epos „At empire’s end” und das spacige Stoner-Monster „The transmutation of Cosmoctopus Lurker ” Ein weiteres Meisterwerk in der von solchen überquellenden Diskografie der Norweger.

    Google translate:

    With the clattering and creaking marching, surprisingly melodic “The warning, Pt. 1 & 2 ”, the guys from Trondheim again playfully prove who the kings of psychedelic noise hard rock are. As if we didn't all already know. To underpin their statement, Motorpsycho followed up with the majestic title track, which then surprisingly merged into the acoustic, at least as ingenious “Lady May 1”, somewhat reminiscent of the West Coast sound of Crosby, Stills & Nash. Further highlights of an atmospherically coherent, immensely varied long player with a lot of late sixties or early seventies feeling and yet blessed with timeless beauty are the hearty, riff-laden and thoughtful “The united debased”, the gloomy, playful “ The watcher ”, the almost nine-minute, prog-seeming epic“ At empire's end ”and the spacey stoner monster“ The transmutation of Cosmoctopus Lurker ”Another masterpiece in the overflowing discography of the Norwegians.

    Dear Motorpsycho,
    It's been over four weeks since the announcement of the new album, and it's now less than four weeks until its release. Where's that bloody digital single!
    Yours sincerely,
    Impatient of London
