For the second time this year DJ Magazine awards a Mental Overdrive album 9 out of a possible 10 and writes a raving review. This time it’s ‘Everything is connected’ that tickles their fancy (in their April issue), though in a different way than ‘CYCLS’ did back in their January issue.

Great reviews of Mental Overdrive’s ‘CYCLS’

There have been some great reactions to the new Mental Overdrive album ‘CYCLS’, which was released in late December. DJ Magazine gives it 9 out of a possible 10 and makes it one of the albums of the month in their January issue, Uncut gives it a 7/10 and states that its “space poetry and dubby punktronica make an exotic brew“, while Future Music magazine insists it’s “a forward-thinking and uncompromising album” and gives it a 7/10. The limited CD version of ‘CYCLS’ will soon be available through our webstore.


‘CYCLS’ out December 21st

CYCLS’ is Per Martinsen’s 9th album under his Mental Overdrive moniker (that is if you count in his ‘silent’ album ‘Unplugged’, his live-only album ‘ANTI-LBM’, and ‘The Phuture that never happened’ – the Smalltown Supersound compilation of EP’s initially released through R&S Records – which you should). The tracks on CYCLS were initially made available through his own Bandcamp page as a kind of ‘advent calendar’ for the ‘Mayan end date’ of December 21st 2012; a new track was posted each Monday in the weeks counting down to what some believed was to be the end of the world. Having previously lived through the ‘Year 2k-scare’, ‘The Rapture’, and numerous other ‘end-dates’ launced by small indie purveyors of the truth, Martinsen wanted – through the album title – to suggest that there is no absolute deadline to this existence, no matter how much some people seems to require one, but rather that everything runs in cycles – like good vinyl records.

CYCLS will be released on the one year anniversary of the end of the world – on December 21st 2013, and will be available in all digital stores plus as a limited CD edition directly from our webstore.

Monster the movie (In English)
November 27, 2013, 2:05 pm
Filed under: News


A few of our international friends have been asking about the “Monster the movie” post that we put up on our website and Facebook page (in Norwegian) this week, so we thought we owed an explanation in English:

Basically, we’re applying for crowdfunding for the completion of our new film “Monster”, which is a collaboration between director Carl Christian Lein Størmer and Love OD Communications.

Those of you who have seen our previous collaboration, “Ghost radio Hunter”, which was made in connection to the Frost album “Radiomagnetic”, might have a slight idea of what to expect. Those of you who haven’t, but are curious to see it, can PM us on Twitter or Facebook, or send a mail to to attain a password-protected link for a private viewing of GRH (the film is still doing the rounds at film festivals around the globe, so we cannot make it openly available yet).

In our next endeavour “Monster”, we have left the Arctic ghost towns of Svalbard for the rather inhabited London, where we’re following a very special friend of us through a (for him) pretty normal day.

Along the way we bump into some well-known landmarks and areas of the city, but also quite a few (unknowing) men and women on the street, as well as a few underground celebrities (!)

Musically, the film is based around Mental Overdrive’s 2013 single “Mønster“, and will also include other passages of music and sound design by M.O.

Up until now the film has been mostly financed by ourselves and our ever-present DIY ethics, but as we’re now getting into the final stages of production and feel that we want to put in a little extra time and effort in making this as close to a little masterpiece as our abilities will allow us, we’re reaching out to you – the people – to help us finalize the project.

If you feel that you might want to get involved, we have worked out two suggested ways of supporting us:

You can either:

1. Donate a sum of money of your own choice to the project.

2. Buy a special “VIP support kit” from Love OD Communications.

The “VIP support kit” includes a copy of the Mental Overdrive 12″ single “Monster / Ritual” on white vinyl, a copy of the forthcoming Mental Overdrive album “CYCLS” on CD, and an invitation to a private screening of the finished film at the Tromsø International Film Festival in January 2014.

The vinyl single is quite limited in numbers, and is only on offer as far as stock lasts. The CD version of the new album (due for release on December 21st 2013) is also limited, and mainly for distribution in Japan.

For all of the above we’ve been asking the equivalent to £50 for the Norwegian campaign, but as we don’t expect all our international friends to jump on the first plane leaving for the Arctic in 2014 (some might?), we’re also offering an exclusive online screening of the finished film to those outside of Norway who wish to support us.

Because of this, and  because of the higher postage cost involved for supporters based outside Norway to receive the goods (which we have to add to the price), the international version of the kit will be offered at the reduced price of £40.

As services like Kickstarter doesn’t work for projects based in Norway, all transactions will be accepted through Paypal. Those who are interested in getting involved can PM or email us for payment details. You will then also get a password-protected link to a preview of a short teaser for “Monster”.

We hope this project might appeal to some of you, and would be very thankful if you’d help us spread the word!
