In recent weeks, we have had a number of discussions in the band and have concluded that we shall do whatever we can to fulfil the gigs that we have undertaken. We say if, because we do not know if it´s feasible or not.
A year ago, we were asked to start up the band once again and continue the story of Neptune who went into deep rest for over 30 years ago. But even if the saga of Neptune probably not will get the epic ending that we had planned for (a triple EP and some other things), we still want to finish it as dignified as possible, and maybe… continue the saga of Neptune in one or another way.
To be continued
The date for our gig at The Abyss is postponed to a later date..
We can as of today finally publish the date and place for our absolute first gig for over 30 years. Thursday, March 28, will we enter the stage at The Abyss together with speed metal kings Armory from Gothenburg. If you are a Neptune fan (or to be), we promise you that you don’t want to miss this very exclusive and special event. Tickets are to be found at The Abyss website, pick them up before it’s to late ..
Finally, its time to announce the replacement gig in Athens. We will open up for our compatriots Enforcer on May 25 and as if that weren’t enough, we will do it together with the local band Darklon.
Finally, it´s time to announce our first Swedish show on Swedish soil. We are very proud to inform that Neptune is the first announced band on the 2019´s Muskelrock. Well, it’s about half a year away so we wouldn’t be surprised if something more would be announced before we enter the stage in Bälinge…

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.
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.
Our last video is just released and more to come in a near future.
