Review by Bonnek
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Metal Team
4 stars Two years after the energizing debut, Motorpsycho returned with an even better follow up that continued the harsh grunge sound of the debut but that offered more variation in terms of songwriting and sounds.

While having no prog at all, it is sure an eclectic album, opening with a folksy tune featuring some tasty violin and lots of good vibes. From Nothing To Say onwards we're off for a great rocking ride through typical early 90s alternative rock. It's very harsh, direct and heartfelt, and has absolutely nothing to do with prog or even with kraut or space rock. It's just plain good rock music.

The main point of attraction is the 16 minute title track, a monster featuring a doom riff so monolithic that Tony Iommi will forever regret not having found it first. It's a slow plodding beast, almost sludge, but very catchy and really recommended for fans of the Melvins. A 5star marvel in this type of music.

The album is mostly very good but a bit too long really. And unfortunately it nowhere matches the outstanding level of its title track. So, an excellent release for grunge fans and a very good rock album in its own right. 3.5 for sure.

3 stars "Demon Box" is the 2nd full-length studio album by Norwegian hard/psychadelic rock act Motorpsycho. The album was released through Voices of Wonder in February 1993. "Demon Box" was released in a single CD format and double vinyl format. The vinyl edition features three additional tracks not found on the CD version and a longer version of the track "Babylon". This was due to the time limit of the CD format.

While the music on the album is still heavily influenced by late eighties Soundgarden and at times pretty heavy (like in "Feedtime" or the harsh title track) quite a bit has happened since the debut album. More mellow psychadelic influences have crept into the sound (listen to tracks like "Tuesday Morning" "All Is Loneliness" for an example of that) as well as other musical styles like folk rock. Just for a brief moment during the opening track "Waiting For The One" I´m actually reminded of Fairport Convention. "Step Inside Again" represents the most experimental part of the band´s sound as does the 5 noisy minutes in the middle of the title track.

The musicianship is strong although lead vocalist Bent Saether sometimes sound slightly out of key during the more mellow tracks. His raw screaming vocals are really impressive though. It´s no wonder Motorpsycho are often compared to Soundgarden, with a vocalist like that in the band. Although his performance is a bit shaky at times, he should be complimented for how varied his vocal performance is on the album. It´s a great asset to the diversity factor of the album.

The band are generally very well playing and the sound production is powerful and organic sounding. A great change from the more rough sounding productions on the early releases by the band. Overall "Demon Box" is a good quality album and while there are a couple of more unremarkable tracks on the album, the most memorable tracks are really strong. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

4 stars Well, this is where the Motorpsycho adventure really started. While the two first albums (Lobotomizer and 8 Soothing Songs For Rut) showed promise and potential, they were still merely lightweight and straightforward compared to what Demon Box would bring. As always, the vinyl version has 3 mo ... (read more)

5 stars Eclectic prog? Sure. But you can,t really put a label on this album. It`s a pot-pourri of light straight forward guitar based pop, garage grunge, scary psycedelia, tender timid tunes and some led-heavy moments driven by a razor sharp bass guitar. But no matter. It`s all exiting and rewarding t ... (read more)
