Neptune Towers was a dark ambient side project formed in 1993 by Fenriz of Darkthrone.[1] He released two albums under this name, Caravans to Empire Algol (1994) and Transmissions from Empire Algol (1995), both issued by Moonfog Productions.[2][3] Fenriz began recording a third Neptune Towers album, Space Lab, in 1994, but it was not finished. Both albums were reissued by Peaceville Records in 2012, with excerpts from Space Lab appended to Transmissions.[4]

Background[edit]

Fenriz described Neptune Towers as "avant garde astral/alien synth",[5] and credited Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream and (former Tangerine Dream member) Klaus Schulze as influences for the music.[6][7][8]
