Neptune – killer majestic Swedish steel is back again

If you haven’t pre-ordered our album Northern Steel yet, head over to our webshop already today.  Here are some nice words from StreetClip (DE).

New songs but NEPTUNE has immediately certified that they have lost none of their classic magic. They still taste like a melodic NWoBHM band or, accordingly, as a pioneer of the NWoSHM. Besides that, they prove that every song has a certain hymn-factor. 8.5 /10

Neptune is Widely considered by most heavy metal gurus as one of the best unsigned Epic Metal bands from Sweden in the 80’s. With an image and song writing style like a cross between IRON MAIDEN, BLACK SABBATH 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. MAJOR WARNING! This is not just another Swedish metal band. This is KILLER majestic Swedish steel that deserves a place up there with the best. 

These kind words are from Cult Metal Classics, the label who released our album Land of Northern. Now also live on Spotify and on Deezer.

The resurrection

Neptune worked long and well 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 vinyl as well as on CD. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen and the album ended up in the freezer for a very long time.

Something that the band wasn’t aware of was that there were “fans” who had managed to get access of parts of the recordings and other demos from Neptune’s glory days, which eventually found their way out on different forums and You Tube.

Late in the fall of 2017, some of these recordings came to Cult Metal Classics attention. CMC immediately showed interested. A complete recording from the 80’s that had never seen the day light was just in front of them . After some investigation with help from their Swedish representative Janne Stark. It didn’t take long time before the ink had dried and a release date was set. That for both CD as well as vinyl. Just as it was supposed from the very start for over 30 years ago. If you want to know more of the history of Neptune, make sure to read The True Story of Neptunes Rise, Fall and Resurrection.

The CD is now possible to order from Cult Metal Classics and other web stores.
