NEPTUNE – Northern Steel (2020)

We’ll start this review with a recommendation: please do yourself a favor and get ”Northern Steel”, the new album by Swedes NEPTUNE. Do not be fooled by their name, the album title, or the cover artwork.
Why? Simply because these Scandinavians play old-school hard rock / classic metal like few today: melodic runs, twin guitars, the right amount of keyboards and ‘that’ classy vocals.
Think a mix of 220 VOLT, MADISON, the first EUROPE, GLORY, the melodious side of JUDAS PRIEST circa 1982, PRAYING MANTIS, etc… you’ll love this.
