This album signifies a significant milestone for VANDEN PLAS as they welcome Alessandro Del Vecchio as their new keyboardist, infusing fresh vigour and creativity into the band’s dynamic line-up. Del Vecchio’s addition promises to push VANDEN PLAS‘s sound to unprecedented levels while staying faithful to their distinctive style.

“The Empyrean Equation of the Long Lost Things” carries on the band’s legacy of pushing musical boundaries, melding intricate melodies with thought-provoking lyrics. It follows the footsteps of their acclaimed “The Ghost Xperiment” series, cementing VANDEN PLAS‘s status as a leading force in the progressive rock genre.

Guitarist Stephan Lill, who chiefly crafted the compositions on the previous albums, takes sole charge of the music on “The Empyrean Equation of the Long Lost Things,” while Andy Kuntz contributes the lyrics and vocal lines as usual. Kuntz remarks, “I’ve admired Alessandro since our collaboration for his outstanding Frontiers Allstars project, where numerous renowned rock musicians participated. Though Alessandro couldn’t partake in the songwriting for this album due to time constraints, his playing has already enriched the songs and sound with various nuances. The new artistic dynamic is palpable in this production.”

Nevertheless, VANDEN PLAS remains faithful to their signature style: progressive rock infused with elements of elegy, melody, and metallic and epic influences. Furthermore, it’s evident that VANDEN PLAS is embracing a “back to the roots” direction.

With its fusion of technical prowess and emotional resonance, “The Empyrean Equation of the Long Lost Things” is poised to captivate audiences worldwide. Drawing inspiration from the imagery suggested by the lyrics’ concept, this album could be likened to the band rediscovering a lost jewel in the music universe after navigating through challenging experiences and losses.

I have been a Metalhead ever since I was old enough to comprehend what music was. Something really called to me when I for the first time heard my fathers IRON MAIDEN albums being played, that gave me such goosebumps which only made me want more! Ever since then, I’ve been listening into multiple genres with the hunger of exploring new metal music and keeping track of upcoming bands. My favorite genres today is Black Metal and Blackgaze which includes most of my favorite bands, but my biggest favorite of them all is called HARAKIRI FOR THE SKY. I’m really passionate about the metal community and frequently goes to concerts to try to support as many band as possible by buying merch and promoting them by doing reviews. The metal community has shaped me into who I am today and is something that I will always give back to!
