Demon Box is the third full-length studio album by Norwegian rock-band Motorpsycho. Released on double vinyl and single CD formats (the original CD-edition omitting the tracks "Mountain", "Gutwrench" and "Mr. Who?") in February 1993, it saw the band earn their name as one of the most important bands in Norway.[1]
