THIS IS JUST NOT ANOTHER SWEDISH METAL BAND…THIS IS SWEDISH MAJESTIC STEEL
Neptune, an 80s melodic metal band, has cultivated a dedicated following over the years. Now, they are set to unveil their much-anticipated follow-up to the album ”Northern Steel” titled ”End of Time.”
Hailing from the 80s, Neptune is a Swedish melodic metal outfit that is often regarded as one of the pioneering acts of the FWOSHM era. Their musical style is akin to that of Madison, 220 Volt, Heavy Load, early Europe, Deep Purple, Rainbow, and Glory.
With their latest studio offering, ”End of Time,” Neptune has taken their songwriting to a whole new level. They aim to showcase what 80s metal should sound like in the year 2024 – big and majestic.
On the album ”End of Time,” the band has afforded themselves more time to craft material for the upcoming record, with virtually all members actively contributing to the songwriting process. As a result, listeners can anticipate a highly diversified experience, taking them on a captivating journey over xx minutes, free from any fillers or leftover tracks.
Just like their previous album, this one also weaves a hidden narrative, much like the elusive Midgard Serpent, which lurks in the background. The story is deeply rooted in the Nordic ancient tales and sagas which celebrate our Viking heritage. The narrative culminates in the year 1066, the fateful year when the last known Vikings drew their final breath after a tough battle at Stamford Bridge, marking the end of the Viking era, hence the title ”End of Time.”
