BOX
Studio 1

[Rune Grammofon, www.runegrammofon.com]

  Formed mysteriously over a two day timeframe, Box is made up of four musicians.  Already, they've been penned as an international supergroup, but we'll let PR people deal with that "misfortune".  Guitarist Raoul Bjorkenheim, joins bassist Trevor Dunn, keyboardist Stale Storlokken and percussionist Morgan Agren for a steadily paced 42 minutes of power, fury and disciplined outrage.  Starting off with a brisk 17 minute work-out "Untitled 9", the band is off to a good start.  Bjorkenheim puts in a wad of steadily escalating guitar riffs that are fat and over-the-top, while Dunn's bass playing is filthy and refreshingly solid.  All the while keyboard machinations from Storlokken are constantly changing and multiply like worms after a summer rainstorm.  Percussionist Morgan Agren goes head-to-head with Bjorkenheim on a number of occasions and each time, the battle intensifies and gets red hot.  My only complaint is inclusion of the album's four short numbers.  The quartet really needs open spaces to truly shine.  Otherwise, "Studio 1" serves up some tasty improv, done up in thick saucy style.  Guaranteed to please at least the rock contingent in the crowd.  I'd be interested to hear what direction this band picks next.
