Heavy Metal Fruit

Motorpsycho are at it again! Less than half a year after the only on vinyl album "Child of the future", Rune Grammofon puts out "Heavy metal fruit". It is classic Motorpsycho, and damned good, with stretched out numbers smelling a bit of both prog and Grateful Dead. I wouldn´t have been disappointed if they cut it down a bit (won´tell you where), but as long as they offer a three sided double vinyl edition, with cover by Kim Hiorthøy, and side A etched by the same man, you will not hear me complain.
The band is Kenneth Kapstad, Hans Magnus Ryan and Bent Sæther, and they are joined by Kåre Chr Vestrheim (keyb), Hanne Hukkelberg (voc) and Mathias Eick (tp).
They also had one of the LP sides etched by Hiorthøy on "Timoty´s Monster" (1994).

well, svenn, they did a great new work again! my first impressions and thoughts are Yes around Tales of Topographic Ocean and a bit of Black Sabbath or Saint Vitus. the triple gatefold cover is well worth the buying. cheers, andreas

I always fall for great cover design, and tricks like the artwork on the vinyl! AND I just came home with the new Jaga album. Prog too I guess :-)
