Neptune - "Northern Steel" (official teaser)

Οι Neptune μας έρχονται από την Σουηδία. Δημιουργήθηκαν το 1979 (ως Warriens μέχρι το 1980) και δραστηριοποιήθηκαν στα 80s. Τέσσερα demos ο δισκογραφικός τους απολογισμός, ενώ το 1986 ηχογράφησαν στα Sountrade Studios ένα LP, το οποίο δεν κυκλοφόρησε ποτέ. Tο 2017 επανασυνδέθηκαν και (το επόμενο έτος) κυκλοφόρησαν δίσκο - συλλογή.

Τιτλοφορείται "Land of Northern" και περιλάμβανε όλα τα ηχογραφήματα της Σουηδικής μπάντας. Τον Σεπτέμβρη του 2019 κυκλοφόρησαν ένα ep τεσσάρων τραγουδιών ("The Last Flight of the Rafven") και πλέον έφθασε η στιγμή για τον πρώτο ολοκληρωμένο τους δίσκο. "Northern Steel" ο τίτλος, 6 Νοεμβρίου η ημερομηνία κυκλοφορίας του.

Αλλαγές προέκυψαν ως προς το line-up της Σουηδικής μπάντας με το ιδρυτικό μέλος Roland "Rowland Alex" Alexandersson να αφήνει το μπάσο και να αναλαμβάνει τα φωνητικά, τον Jan Tosh Andersson να αφήνει τα τύμπανα για να αναλάβει το μπάσο (που άφησε ο Roland) και τον Jonas Wikström να κάθεται πίσω από το drum kit επιστρέφοντας (πέρυσι) 32 χρόνια μετά (μπερδευτήκατε;)...

Δελτίο τύπου: «The melodic metal band Neptune releases a video teaser for their upcoming studio album Northern Steel. The album is planned to be released on November 6th, 2020. Neptune, an 80s melodic metal band that has built up a loyal fanbase over time, is now finally releasing their real debut album, only 35 years after they pulled the plug from the band.

Early 2018, their collected demo recordings from the 1980s were released to the fans' great satisfaction. The band was completely unaware that some of their old recordings were leaked online during the 2000s which found its way to fans around the globe. That culminated in the release of the compilation album "Land of Northern".

After the release of “Land of Northern”, the band decided to start to write new material for a full-length album, but life wanted otherwise. Their vocalist Ray Alex passed away early 2019 and the band retreated once again to make a decision on how to proceed.

The band had a couple of gigs booked and decided to fulfill them with the late singer's brother Row Alex in front of the microphone. To meet the fans after 30 years gave them the energy boost they needed to take it to the next level. Finally, will they release what will be the band's first real full-length album - Northern Steel.

Neptune is a Swedish melodic metal band from the 1980s that was considered to be one of the earliest pioneers during the NWOSHM era. The band are in the same style as Madison, 220 Volt, Heavy Load, Early Europe, Silver Mountain and Glory.»

Neptune: «We have been writing new material for some time and you can expect a fully-loaded album with 80´s metal in a somewhat 2000’s style. The ruler from the sea will once rise up from depth. With inspiration from our old heroes from the past, we decided to take it even further and have invited several of our dear friends from a bunch of leading bands to join us on the album. The album has been named “Northern Steel” and those who know their history know what happened almost exactly 40 years ago...»
