Fields Of The Nephilim

The Nephilim

Beggars Banquet
Released 5 September 1988

Of all the bands involved in Britain's goth-rock movement of the 1980s, Fields of the Nephilim were the most believable. The group's cryptic, occult-inspired songs were sung in a guttural roar by vocalist Carl McCoy. Live appearances were shrouded with dim light and smoke machines, while bandmembers stalked the stage in black desperado gear inspired by western dress. The group was also one of the longest lived of the original goth-rock groups, finally disbanding in 1991 when McCoy left for another project.

The Nephilim approached their second album with confidence and a clutch of stunning new songs to create an elegantly produced and played monster of dark, powerful rock.
