The Death Defying Unicorn is a collaborative studio album between Norwegian Alternative Rock/Progressive Rock band Motorpsycho and Staale Storlokken, a known Jazz composer also from Norway, accompanied by the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra. It is Motorpsycho’s fifteenth album, and their first collaboration with Storlokken.

The Norwegian metallers Motorpsycho have conjured something special for their fifteenth album, together with keyboardist Storløkken. While the first disc of this sprawling double delves into familiar prog-rock territory with its outlandish choirs, sweeping orchestral arrangements, odd time signatures and gnomic lyrics, it’s the darker, slower second CD when the album hits its stride. Using shivery string sounds and Storløkken’s swirling eerie electronics to the full, the black menace of Sharks and the sinister ambience of La Lenthe make a nice contrast to the bombast elsewhere.

But could Motorpsycho and Storløkken go into the studio and document it with the same energy, the same commitment? The answer: a resounding yes. An epic journey that tells the story of a thief who is caught and given two choices, hanging or cabin boy on a ship leaving to explore uncharted territory, The Death Defying Unicorn, subtitled "A Fanciful and Fairly Far-Out Musical Fable," is a sweeping progressive rock epic that spans two discs and 82 minutes.
