Vega Nova Releases New LP Album “Lovesongs For The Dead”

Copenhagen alternative rock band Vega Nova has released their new long-playing record album, “Lovesongs for the Dead.” The record is comprised of twelve original tracks for an approximate total of 45 minutes playing time, making for a strong dose of audio medicine from the European duo. “Lovesongs…” is a record that comes out swinging and doesn’t let up, with enough variation in its compositions to seem fresh at every turn, while at the same time keeping a steady flow of power from start to finish.

In this trait, Vega Nova’s album joins that elite club of rock musicians who are capable of producing a record that has a character all its own, like Abbey Road (Beatles), Ten (Pearl Jam), or Metallica’s black album. “Lovesongs for the Dead” is a cutting-edge work of postmodern rock that features pounding, up-front percussion, soaring wall-of-sound orchestration, and epic-scale chord progressions. V.N. does not shirk from contemporary digital effects, either. They tend to prefer sounds and tones more akin to Depeche Mode’s “Violator” record, albeit much more masculine and confrontational. The result is a cross between the darker, almost spiritual overtones of Tool and the dance-friendly overtures of Muse and 30 Seconds to Mars; however, Vega Nova does not sound at all emo-inspired.

This makes sense to fans who have followed the careers of Vega Nova’s members Jeppe Christensen (Synth, vox) and Jesper Tilsted (Guitar, bass, synth). Christensen and Tilsted have performed in numerous capacities in the European heavy metal theater, and are also members of the popular and accomplished Danish metal band Raunchy, which crew has released five full-length records to date as well as performing in Denmark, Europe, Russia, and China.

Like indie favorites The Postal Service, Christensen and Tilsted compose most of their music by mailing tracks to one another to be polished at last in the live music studio. Each song clearly reflects the concerns and characters of the artists.

“The music,” writes Vega Nova, “revolves around classic themes such as growing up, becoming a parent, love, hate, and life in general when you are in your mid-thirties.” The record does represent a departure from their usual writing, however. They’ve added a pop-music dimension to their metal roots for “Lovesongs for the Dead.”

Vega Nova’s “Lovesongs for the Dead” was recorded around the world between 2010 and 2012.
Acoustic drums recorded by Martin Pagaard Wolff at Hansen Studios. Additional guitar and synth by Jacob Hansen. “Lovesongs for the Dead” is available everywhere online beginning January 23, 2013.
