The music of Fields of the Nephilim incorporates gothic rock, psychedelia and heavy metal. The seminal band draw influence from spiritualism and magic, with songs that conjure imagery from HP Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos, chaos magic and the mystic arts practised by Aleister Crowley. Drawing on such hard rock sounds and themes with powerful magical potency, resulting in a band that produces dark and uncompromising music that thrills fans around the world.
Taking their name from the Biblical race of gigantic angel-human hybrids, the band was started by vocalist Carl McCoy. Combining his love of Spaghetti Westerns and his passion for the occult, McCoy forged a band whose image and music was like no other.
Fascinated by the bands image and original sound, the band easily attracted the interest of the music press and record labels. Debut album Dawnrazor was released in 1987 saw the band shoot to the tops of the indie charts.
However, mainstream success came with the release of their second album; The Nephilim, in 1988. Narrowly missing out on topping the indie charts again by coming in at #2, the band enjoyed more mainstream success in reaching #14 in the UK Album Chart.
The nineties saw the band rise to become a major cult rock band. Their diverse creativity saw them developing a distinctive style, adopted by their fans, working in film and illustration.
To date the band have eight amazing studio albums and continue to entertain those who would dare to adventure on to the fringes of the known.
