The Neptune Power Federation releases a music video for the new single »We Beasts Of The Night« featuring Chris Penney

Australian psychedelic occult rock act The Neptune Power Federation releases a music video for the new single »We Beasts Of The Night« featuring Chris Penney of Private Function.

»We Beasts Of The Night« is taken from the band’s upcoming album, »Le Demon De L’Amour«, set to release on February 14th, 2022 via Cruz Del Sur Music.

Says the band: “This Valentines Day will see the release of The Neptune Power Federation’s fifth album »Le Demon De L’Amour« A collection of love songs addressing what the band see as a worrying decline in the art form amongst modern heavy rock musicians. Naturally, amongst this collection there needed to be an epic power ballad which is where »We Beasts of The Night« steps in. The song is a loving tribute to the Jim Steinman penned anthems of yore, and features Private Function’s Chris Penney in duet with the Imperial Priestess, Screaming Loz Sutch.”

Australian psychedelic rock and roll brigade The Neptune Power Federation rocks as furiously as ever on their fifth studio full-length »Le Demon De L’Amour«, which will be released on February 14th 2022 via Cruz Del Sur Music!

Recorded at bass player JayTanic Ritual’s The Ped Food Factory in Marrickville, Sydney, with mixing duties provided by Clem Bennett, »Le Demon De L’Amour« leads the band into their tenth anniversary next year. Their journey has taken them from the sweaty clubs of Sydney to a global audience. Now armed with eight love songs sure to melt and captivate the most hardened metal hearts, The Neptune Power Federation boldly goes where few bands dare to go.

Off the heels of their acclaimed 2019 »Memoirs Of A Rat Queen« studio album, the members of The Neptune Power Federation utilized the unexpected downtime afforded from the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic to craft an album that takes more chances than its predecessor. While the band’s trademark rock swagger and prog tendencies still come into play, »Le Demon« ups the voltage and energy. True, there is a multitude of genre-blurring taking place, but the album’s infectious choruses and leaden riffs easily re-imagine metal and rock’s glory eras without blatant thievery.

Of course, all roads to The Neptune Power Federation run through lead vocalist Screamin’ Loz Sutch and her stage persona, The Imperial Priestess. »Le Demon De L’Amour«’s eight cuts find the indomitable frontwoman in top form, belting out tales of love from a female’s perspective, weaving in stories of cult worship, murder and hypnotism. The album’s artwork (created by guitarist Inverted CruciFox) also introduces her new nemesis – The Wizzard Princess.
