Neptune - "Viking Stone" (video)

The stone, made him, a storyteller
He passed, the truth, to us forever

A child was born, in the ages of steel
When Northmen ruled, over land and sea
Built with hands, as strong as steel
Runes became, carved in wood

then he learned, how to make a...
Viking stone… tell us all you know
Viking stone all the stories ever known

Time passed by, he became a man
He changed the wood, to a harder hand
Built with hands, as strong as steel
Feather light, the hammer feels

Viking stone… tell us all you know
Viking stone all the stories ever known
all the stories ever known

Thousand years of glory
Viking stone… tell us all you know

All the stories ever known
Viking stone... all the stories ever known
Viking stone... tell us all your stories
Viking stone... thousand years of glory

Viking Stone...


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 και "βγήκε" προ ημερών.

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: «Official music video for Viking Stone by Neptune of their album, Northern Steel. Over the years, the band has become accustomed to living with difficulties of all kinds. So, when a pandemic like Corona swept across the world like a wildfire, they were strongly inspired by all the doctors and nurses who give their absolute best for humanity and its survival.

This culminated in their first single - Fallen Nations which is an appeal one to all the wounded countries of this pandemic to rise again. 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.»
