Neptune the Mystic is a symphonic rock band from Nashville who take influence from European symphonic metal and early goth/industrial music. Founded in 2013, Neptune the Mystic was the result of a punk guitarist (Hayden C. Gist), a metalhead drummer (Colin George), and a boy with a powerful voice (Rafael Borjas) gathering together in their college dorm to write alternative rock and metal songs and perform around local venues in middle Tennessee.


Not long after the trio released their first homemade EP, Blue, were they joined in late 2014 by Gentry George on keyboards and Kaleb Tench on bass to broaden their sonic possibilities and create a new blend of power metal and industrial rock that has been described as "ethereal metal" and "werewolf music" by friends and locals.


On March 30, 2019, Neptune the Mystic released their debut full-length album "Visions & Nightmares", available now on all online music platforms.
