Fields of the Nephilim are an English gothic rock band formed in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, England in 1984. The band's name refers to a Biblical race of giants or angel-human hybrids, known as the Nephilim. Although the band have not received substantial mainstream success, their seminal sound has proved highly influential, especially in the genre of gothic rock.
In December 2014 Fields of the Nephilim played two shows at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire to celebrate three decades of the band in all its various versions. As typical Saturday shopping traffic circles to and from the monstrously vast Westfield shopping mall a huddle of black-clad folk try to keep warm on the steps of the Empire theatre. We got a kind of makeshift little studio together and we were down there every day. Dawnrazor (debut album, 1987) came out of that. We were really dedicated from the word go really.

Fields of the Nephilim may well have been tagged Gothic Rock, but they also sounded completely different to their peers in the late 80s, an era which was dominated by many musical styles, yet never seemed to make Carl Mccoy and his (not so) merry men a successful, domineering force. The band's second album, The Nephilim, released in 1987, is a prime example of their 80s sound, yet isn't quite their best album either.

Having built a considerable and passionate fanbase, the Nephilim approached their second album with confidence and a clutch of stunning new songs. The resulting, semi-self-titled release blows away the first by a mile (the art design alone, depicting an ancient, worn book with strange symbols, is a winner), being an elegantly produced and played monster of dark, powerful rock.
