Neptune Towers biography
NEPTUNE TOWERS was a solo project begotten by influential black-metaller FENRIZ (of DARKTHRONE fame) as a tribute to the seventies albums of Klaus SCHULZE and the space-themed television programmes of his youth. The output amounted to a two-album concept seemingly based on alien abduction. FENRIZ viewed the project as the fruition of his ''old yearning for the space vibe finally coming alive'' and while a third episode of the cycle - ''Space Lab'' - was proposed for release in 1996 it was shelved because FENRIZ deemed the concept to be obsolete.

The two lengthy exposures that span the width of the first album, ''Caravans To Empire Algol'' (1994), represent a great celestial voyage to the eclipsing binary star that marks The Gorgon's Head. The sound was delimited by the available equipment, basically an Ensoniq synth plus a borrowed echo and reverb box, with dark meditative panoramic discoveries and cold-void visionary drone-modes permeating the atmosphere.

The companion album, ''Transmissions From Empire Algol'' (1995), remains within the esoteric recesses of the Berlin School but it was augmented by the addition of a Casio and it consequently throws off a shell of ersatz relics and aquatic throwbacks, and in general it yields to a greater use of melody. Included on the 2012 re-issue are several bonus tracks from the abortive ''Space Lab'' formation.

Similar artists in the archives: Klaus SCHULZE, Edgar FROESE, CLUSTER and ARC.
