Motorpsycho is a band from Trondheim in Norway. Their music can generally be defined as psychedelic rock, but they also mix in elements from metal, jazz, rock, pop and many other musical styles.
Formed in the late eighties as an alternative metal band, Motorpsycho soon developed a unique blend of grunge, heavy metal and indierock, as well as incorporating the sonic noise experiments of associated member Deathprod. The hugely ambitious, progressive "Demon Box" (1993) album followed a series of low-profile EPs and albums, earning the band a nomination for a Norwegian Grammy, and secured a loyal following in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands as well as in Scandinavia.
The nineties was an extremely productive era for the band, releasing new material almost every year, and enjoying critical acclaim for each album. With the 2000 album "Let Them Eat Cake", Motorpsycho suddenly took huge steps away from their noisy hard rock roots, opting instead for a smoother, jazz-tinged approach to the songwriting and recording process. They kept this technique for the subsequent releases, Phanerothyme and It's A Love Cult.
2008 saw the release of a new record "Little Lucid Moments", an album with only 4 songs, the shortest one clocking in at 11 minutes. Recently Motorpsycho did very impressive live gigs with the new drummer who is fully integrated in the band now.
