Down tune, drop out and get fuzzed as it’s time to ride the psychedelic soundwaves of The Neptune Power Federation as they unleash their latest opus Neath A Shin Ei Sun upon the universe.
The opening track of the album’s namesake transcends you into the maelstrom of heavy 70’s inspired riffs from guitarists Inverted Crucifix and Search & DesTroy, rumbling bass lines of Jaytanic Ritual and groove-laden drumming of River Sticks. This follows throughout the album will get the boogie van loving populace nodding and bopping in unison.
By the time you get to track 5, “Burning”, just try and sit still. This will have you up and strutting on the light up the dance floor in your double denim with its rhythmic groove in no time and continues to the next track “Sup Thy Potion” which is real foot stomper as the band ploughs along to Screaming Loz Sutch’ scorching vocals. The stoners will spark up in delight as “Way of the Wizard’, a powerful hit of 70’s heavy metal rolls on through. From tracks 3 to 7, the album opens up showing TNPF love of loud heavy rock n roll. The album is closed out by an epic prog rock extravaganza entitled “We Shall Triumph”, in which I already believe The Neptune Power Federation already has.
So put on your headphones, flop out on to the beanbag, look back on the past as a void and embrace the frequencies of tomorrow.
