Biography

Formed in 1984, the Fields of the Nephilim take their name from the Biblical legends of Nephilim, who were fallen angels expelled from Heaven for divulging hidden knowledge to humans. Their debut occurred in 1985 with their Burning the Fields EP, of which 500 copies were originally released on their own Tower label. The EP, even though being rather limited, caught the attention of Beggar's ... Read more in Amazon's Fields Of The Nephilim Store

Such was my excitement and anticipation for this release that I pre-ordered it when it was first announced quite a few months ago. I was particularly looking forward to having live versions of Wail of Sumer / And There Will Your Heart Be Also and Shine as well being able to hear a completed version of From The Fire. On receiving my CD / DVD set my anticipation was fed further by the enticing artwork of the outer sleeve and digipack inside. So far so good. First thing I did was to play the above mentioned tracks from the CD and it was at this point that my heart sank. Wail of Sumer / And There Will Your Heart Be Also is, for me, the best song that Fields of the Nephilim have recorded and I was hoping that this first live version to make it on to CD would add some new dimension to the track (I actually remember being blown away by this song when they previewed it on the "For Her Light tour") but was instead left feeling strangely underwhelmed. Over the years Carl's vocals have been the subject of many debates but to be honest I always felt they added to the character of the songs and, especially on the excellent Elizium album, were able to be both brutal and ethereal at the same time however on the recording in this CD / DVD there is nothing ethereal about the vocal at all. So maybe Shine would be better - Ok this track relies less on delicate vocal nuances but is still a song of light and shade, the vocal is less exposed on this track but again it just doesn't quite gell and that is, for the most part, the problem with this CD / DVD. I can't quite put my finger on it, Andy Jackson's recording of Earth Inferno shows that a Fields of the Nephilim live CD can sound just as good, if not better, than the studio recordings but Ceromonies just doesn't quite do it.Read more ›

Four years after the event, and the Fields Of The Nephilim return with a immaculately prepared and constructed live set : after the now 20 year old "Earth Inferno" album and "Visionary Heads" film, the band, whomever they are, and whatever they do, are long overdue a presentation fitting of their current incarnation. With three albums since the last live record, there's a lot of songs to hear.

In short, two CD's (and 2 hours) of music, and a hour long DVD, taken from two shows in London in July 2008, and "Ceromonies", The Fields Of The Nephilim present a new and fitting live experience. There's little repetition from the previous live set, with only "Psychonaut", "Moonchild" and "Preacher Man", and 17 songs not previously on any live record.

Visually, the DVD may only be an hour - but what an hour. The use of imagery, shots, angles, and staging is not that of a regular band, but something far more than that , evoking the kind of shamanistic, transcendary ethos that underpinned the bands work, where the guitars are some kind of portal to a different universe. This band, bearing only the singer from previous incarnations of the name, is undoubtedly an effective, ruthless machine. Gavin King peels out guitars left, right, centre, whilst Lee Newell on drums hits each note with precision. At points - on "Requiem" - the dense percussive wall of sound that was ruthlessly overdubbed may be a little thinner on stage - but the sound is still there, the intent and atmosphere conjured effectively.

Close your eyes, and it feels right. Just like being there.

After all, when the figures on stage are shrouded in smoke, when they are mere shilouettes in hats and the lights and sound are all you need know.

...but was instead left feeling strangely underwhelmed. I can see what you mean and at the same time again can't quite put my finger on it. I'm unsure if it's Carl McCoy's insistence that everything should be perfect and he should be at the centre of everything that gives less freedom to the other musicians. There are some good points; the drums are excellent and much higher up the mix unlike the studio releases. However, you feel at times they are playing to a set formula. Moonchild an example: I've always like the end `rocking bit' on the studio release which is totally missing live. Electronics have always played a part in Fields of Nephilim and the CD lists `Machine MkII' which may have restricted flexibility of the songs unlike using live keyboard player.

But it's not all bad... Ceromonies is still the best live Fields of the Nephilim release, it can still move, Preacher Man and especially Mourning Sun are The Nephilim at their best, crunchy guitars, booming bass, powerful drums and McCoy's guttural vocals. In my opinion have always been sidelined to bands like The Cure or Sisters of Mercy but no-one can't say the Nephilim have not had a major impact on the alternative scene.

The DVD is a nice extra - to be honest I very rarely play music DVD's as they are less transportable while travelling or driving. There are a few strange edit cuts but nothing major. Overall, the package is nicely presented and this is well worth getting. If there was a half star 4.5 out of 5.

This is one of the finest live recordings I've ever heard. Truly epic versions of already great songs, some even exceeding in quality of playing and atmosphere the original studio versions, which in view of the quality of the originals has to be a surprise at the least.

The selection covers the entire career of the Nephilim, with material from the early days as well as from the most recent studio record, the wonderful Mourning Sun. The DVD also has excellent sound and is truly exciting visually, drawing you in, as though you were there in person.

The packaging design is, as usual with Carl McCoy's work, excellent.

It remains a puzzle that Fields of the Nephilim are not massive, in view of the consistently high quality of their output from the very beginning until this, the most recent release.
