NEPTUNE WITH FIRE was the 2008 debut release from Los Angeles-based band ANCESTORS.
Neptune With Fire is a concept album that tells of the metaphorical trials of Orcus and Neptune, respectively, and their cosmic, psychological journey through war, celebration, remorse and revelation. The character of Neptune was written as an immortal personification of the mortal man, and for the band, his plight was conceived of as a way of realizing their own epistemological struggles. Since the release of this now out-of-print album, Ancestors has continued to create new and innovative music. But it all starts here. Reissued for the first time on cassette with a bonus track in 2016, it quickly sold out and is now available for a limited second run.
