Neptune release their album after 30 years

Post by Marlowe »

Hello fellow rockers!

Neptune is one of the earlier hard rock and heavy metal bands from Sweden and was already formed back in 1979 at the early days of hard rock, heavy metal and still today all 5 original members remain in the band. Only difference is the lead guitarist Anders "Marlowe" Olsson came into the band 1985.

Neptune worked long with their debut album in the mid 80's. Several record companies showed great interest and the album were only signatures away from being released on both vinyl and CD. Unfortunately, that didnt happened and the album ended up in the freezer for almost 30 years.

With an image and song writing style like a cross between IRON MAIDEN and MANOWAR, the band penned some great classic heavy metal tunes and managed to gain a cult status among demo collectors and underground metal fans around the globe". And 30 years apart, Neptune is now back! Armed with a new record deal, the album is entitled "Land of Northern" and its a fantastic 16 page limited special edition, featuring remastered sound, song lyrics, band photos, background story and original fantasy cover artwork.

To be released in Feb 2018 by Sonic Age Records.

I'm seeing 5 recently-divorced blokes in the middle of mid-life crisis. I reckon their kids will be their roadies too.

Ha ha, nasty...
Bantering aside, they were surely one of the finest Swedish demo-acts of the 80's and this has potential to be one of the best releases of 2018. I hope we won't have to wait until 2025 for the vinyl version?

...and do keep us (me) posted on upcoming gigs, guys! /nollåtta

Stop judging people by the way they look, that's what "other people" do with metal heads.

Haven't heard the demos but the track on the Metal Knights compilation is great! Looking forward to a full length.

Exactly. Bald men with sunglasses and brand new leather "biker"jacket" :D

New tracks sound surprisingly good, no matter how they look.

They were the best band (along ACT), on that superb Metal Knight compilation imo.

Fun to read all comments, really :D And I agree, time is a bitch.. but without time we shouldn’t have any vintage bands at all. Even if the guys (we) do not really look the same as for 30 years ago, the old tapes and demos still sounds the same…. right..
Anyway, I will let you know as soon as we book any gigs.. we are already in discussion with a few festivals... :D

Further on the upside of old dudes in leather jackets, wasn't this exactly what we wanted more of a few weeks ago?
