about

Death Machine are releasing their 3rd album ‘Orbit’ on November 15. 
 We are celebrating it with 3 exclusive release concerts in Copenhagen, Odense and Aarhus before the band is going on a bigger release tour in Denmark, Austria and Germany in the beginning of 2020.

While the two first singles from the new album ‘Isle of Mine’ and ‘Mask’ was on rotation on the Danish National Radio, and the 3rd single ‘Alien’ was a minor radio hit in Germany, the 4th single ‘Someday’ is well on its way to orbit around the airwaves leading the way for the new album.


Death Machine, has previously been very succesful with songs ‘Bleak’ and ‘Cocoon’, from their previous album. Both were among the most played songs on the Danish National Radio in 2017. This time we find them experimenting more with their soundscape drawing lines back in time, into the jungle and to the infinite universe.

Inspired and influenced by organic hiphop beats and singer/songwriters of the 70’s, the sound of Death Machine is still tied together by Jesper’s fragile vocal, his personal lyrics and the Spanish guitar which has been the starting point for his songs ever since the first album was recorded in his kitchen.


Being in orbit around something that you never come into contact with. Connected and interacting with the phenomenon that can only be observed from a distance. This is the image of the alienated human and the theme throughout Death Machine's 3rd album 'Orbit'.

The songs are based on songwriter Jesper Mogensen's personal experiences and considerations, which are held in a cinematic universe of ambient soundscapes that helps the mind stray away from the “down-to-earth” atmosphere and even further into space. This way human emotions are placed in a larger universal context in which Death Machine creates a sound which is entirely their own, but at the same time hints towards 80’s new age and 70’s folk music. This combination characterizes the sound of Death Machine.


Death Machine and their new songs can be experienced live in Copenhagen, Odense and Aarhus in Denmark for three exclusive release concerts, before the tour continues to Austria and Germany in January 2020.

‘Orbit’ is out November 15 on Celebration Records on exclusive ltd. colored vinyl, a black standard vinyl and on all streaming services.

about

Death Machine Copenhagen, Denmark

The story of Death Machine begins with a real shitty week in the life of lead singer Jesper Mortensen. Within one week his girlfriend leaves, his old band dissolves and he gets fired from his job. Instead of breaking down Jesper transform the anger and despair into his first set of songs by the dogma that each songs must take up to 8 hours to complete. ... more

Track Name: Alien
I am not quite here Not there
I’m the man who used to care
I’ve been walking many miles
But now and then it seems
Like memories of places I’ve never seen We’ve been talking many times
But now I can’t recall
If everything is built upon dilusive core
Don’t know where it goes if blown to a hole
Don’t know
I’ve been up all night Just waiting
Need to dye your eyes I’m fading
I will go for anything I’m longing to connect
But something deep inside me will not eject
Going down this road where I’ve been a thousand times Wait! this ain’t getting anywhere,
I let you drive
Don’t know where it goes if blown to a hole
Don’t know
Don’t know
Track Name: Tied
Waking! woke up realising I’m free Woke up in a ditch full of dreams
Waited! waited for a year to repair all holes and cracks everywhere
Eyes won’t change
Well did you know my dreams Let em’ bleed
Lately, Lately I’ve tried to pretend Lately we are nothing but friends
Eyes won’t change
Well have you seen my dreams Let em’ bleed
I do Love you
My hands are tied, to your bed
I’d like to touch you, but I’m trapped in my head Though I’m a ghost, when with you
I’d like to kiss you but your lips
kiss him too
Silent! Silently painting the walls Erasing all windows and doors
Sleeping! Sleeping but no one can tell Turning to stone as I dwell
Eyes won’t change
Well have you seen my dreams Let em’ bleed
I do Love you
My hands are tied, to your bed
I’d like to touch you but I’m trapped in my head Though I’m a ghost when with you
I’d like to kiss you, but your lips
kiss him too
Track Name: Someday
Someday I’m gonna leave this place I’m gonna be far away and free That’s where I’ll be
Someday I’m gonna leave this mind I’m gonna grow into the lightest soul Build a new home
I don’t know you
I know that your ways, light up the days
I know your scent, I know that we are ment to be more than friends
Maybe you Feel it too That cold sting
Waiting for something quiet loud, Heart of doubt So many nights
Occupy your mind
Someday I’m gonna hear your heart it ́s gonna tell stories I know to well
Vibrating bell
Someday I’m gonna hold your hand we’re gonna go, down another road
lead us to home
You dont know me but I have seen this scene played in my dreams I know your scent I know that we are ment to be more than friends
Maybe you Feel it too That cold sting
Waiting for something quiet loud, Heart of doubt So many nights
Occupy your mind
Track Name: God On My Side
Evil is all about intension God is on my side
I will bring the light
To the darkness
When the blood has dried you will know I’m right
Build the moral high ground
So tall
Enemies be falling
When God is on the phone take The call
this war will help clean up the sprawl
Burning bodies
Blood in the streets
now death is in the air Kill ‘em all
both women and children Learning not to care
It is only fair
Build the moral high ground
So tall
Enemies be falling
When God is on the phone take The call
this war will help clean up the sprawl
It’s about time
Someone who knows what’s wrong and right Is given the power
To take all evil out
Strong in faith no doubt
cuz God is still on your and my side
Evil is all about intension are you on my side
I will bring the light
To the darkness
When the blood has dried you ́ll know I was right
Track Name: Isle Of Mine
You still talked
While I went for a walk
Wintercoat
It has become my home
Ice been crushed beneath
These winterboots on heavy feet
Guess I did leave
A year before my feet
Hold my breath
Forgot what you just said
Winter breeze
A wall I cannot see
All these years are gone
Once again I dreamed of more
I drew a line
Kept my enemy defined
You dont walk the streets I walk
It’s the isle of mine it’s the isle of mine Now days pass by but I don’t mind
I have all the time I have all the time White winterfog will soon be gone When a view is torn then a new is born I search between the trees, around where I used to hide where I used
to drown the dreams I found
Snow is deep
White as the silent sleep
Warming gloves
Has come between our touch
Footprints in the snow Evidence of where it goes
You talk I walk
I’m the setting sun this dawn
Track Name: Maze
Weigh my body
Soak my skin in bleach Meat is processed
in many different ways
Eyes never change
they always see the same
Every kind of thought finds it’s way through This maze
Wrap my tounge in Words of printed ink Place my body
In open offices
Eyes never change
they always see the same
Every kind of thought has the same pale worn out face
Pages turn but I can not read All I know is how I feel
And what I see
My street
and what I ́ll be
My feet
yet I believe I’m free
Soaked in hot dreams Oozing from the screen A Sweet Relief
only very brief
Eyes never change
they always see the same
Every kind of thought has the same pale worn out face
Pages turn but I cannot read All I know is how I feel
And what I see
My street
and what I ́ll be
My feet
yet I believe I’m free
Track Name: Days
Five o’ clock again
Take the train Looking at the land Through rain
I turn on the stove
Eat alone
On my phone a T.V. Show
Take a walk in the park
While the city is getting dark Remember how I used to dream About magic and mysteries
now I find it hard to believe
Phone is on again
I press play
Hours they drift Away
Remember how I used to love With an open and honest heart Many things pass away
Now It’s getting late
This day will fade
While the silence keeps Me awake
Track Name: Moving Ocean
you ́re alive the boy is still inside you In a while you will cross the border
in this moving ocean
no one is to blame
in this moving ocean no one stays the same
you are letting go
I would like to know, if you ́re coming home again
when you sleep you keep moving your feet dissapear leave you skin with dried tears
in this moving ocean
no one sees your face
in this moving ocean
no one knows your name
you are letting go
I would like to know, if you ́re coming home again
Track Name: Mask
Here i am in the corner now Problem seems to be me
My kind of breed
Like a wolf I’m without a leash
I’ll give in to my needs While you’re asleep
but you know my dreams And You like my believes Hungry heart been playing you from the start
Build it up just to break it down Dissapear without sound
not to be found
But I know your dreams
And you like my believes
A good boy looking for newer toy
Now you wanna play
You’re falling like a feather
And in the air you sway
The wind led you astray
Cuz I know your alone
You long for something better
and everyone you know
They tell you not to go
But no one really knows your hole And you’re right Im not made of stone But I’m on roll
I’m a maze I’m without a face I’ll take on different shapes Don’t have a name
Once again I’m alone in bed images in my head
Portray the dead

but you know my dreams And You like my believes Hungry heart been playing you from the start
Track Name: Ghost
Now when I’m on my own
I can still see your ghost Staring at me when I’m home I prefer to be alone
Follow me everywhere Now you are sitting there I’m trying to pretend that I’m careless/unaware
You say your heart did change When love did scar my face
Taking me by the hand
Tell me that I’m your man Asking me for one last dance You’re begging for a chance
Years has erased your face
And I’ve lost track of days You’ve become part of me now Some things won’t seperate
I know my heart did change When love did scar my face
