VICTORY NOT VENGEANCE
The music can range from hard-hitting beats to indie-electronic anthems to haunting ballads to symphonic orchestrations. VNV Nation have also earned incredible acclaim for their energetic live shows and gained a fanatical worldwide following.
For concerts, Ronan and Mark are joined by two live keyboarders, who vary, depending on the location of the show and availability.
Their 2002 album, Futureperfect, while retaining many industrial elements represented a departure in many ways, largely away from EBM and towards synthpop, even incorporating some elements of trance. Some neoclassical instrumental pieces were included in the album. This shift caused their mainstream popularity to increase still further, but alienated some of their fans who preferred their earlier harsher and darker sound, leading to a somewhat weakened reputation in the "underground" music community.
Nonetheless, they embarked on several highly successful world tours in 2002 and 2003. Notably, the album was produced using mainly software synthesizers instead of hardware synthesizers. It was the first VNV Nation album made entirely with software synthesizers.
