NEPTUNE need no special introduction. 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, HEAVY LOAD 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.
This CD version comes in a fantastic 16 page limited special edition, featuring remastered sound, song lyrics, band photos, story and original fantasy cover artwork.
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. Forever HAIL!!!
This band was formed during the 1977 in Toronto, Ontario. Rapid Tears has always been ahead of their time, offering up a good mix of rock and early metal, influenced by NWOBHM, that hasn’t lost any of its punch with the passage of time. These guys weren't afraid of playing fast, with an alarmingly crude production that gives it a dose of credibility and proves these guys had studied their British counterparts well. Songs like the fast opener "Survival", the anthem "Headbang", the epic "Tomorrow" and the hard rock influences of "Keep Runnin'", worth listening to. The American heavy metal passes here too.
