4.0 out of 5 stars The Sound of a Band Finding Their Feet 1 Sep 2000
By A. K. Sheikh VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This, the second album by the Stevenage group, finds them experimenting with more atmospherics (samples from "In the Name of the Rose" can be heard throughout) and longer arrangements that would come to fruition on their brilliant third long player, Elizium. The album is really the first time that McCoy's belief system is brought out through the band. This again comes to fruition on their later recordings.
The album opens with "Endemoniada", the long slow intro building the tension before the band race off into a "none-more-Sisters" rocker. This is followed by the brilliant "The Watchman", one of the best songs they wrote. Paul Wright's signature picked guitar really makes this song. The musicianship within the band was criminally ignored, possibly because of their image and association with "Goth"...
"Moonchild", the single that actually cracked the Top 30 in the UK and put the band on the map for most people, still sounds as good now as it did 12 years ago. "Chord of Souls" always sounded better live than it does here - it kind of bounces along and only really gets going towards the end. "Shiva" was a B-side to the "Moonchild" single and should never have made it onto the album. It's a second rate instrumental with McCoy breathing and trying to sound mysterious. It's pretty cheesy and it lets the album down.
A much more open, laid back trio of songs closes the album. The brooding "Celebrate" sets the pace with a very stark arrangement (mainly just bass and vocals) that works realy well. "Love Under Will" is a good song with a storyline (about death, of course, tsk!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Undated 13 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
I remember queuing up outside the old Top Rank in Southampton to watch the Mighty Neph on their 1988 'Watchman' tour, and the palpable sense of excitement still lingers. They were a special band going against the grain of tired old indie and pop pap that had taken a grip on British music at the time. This album is the sound of a group making music with little reference to their contemporaries -- it's as if they locked themselves away for a few years and simply did not listen to anything while putting it together. To watch them perform these songs live was an awesome experience but you get a good taste of the monumental sound of the Nephilim from these 9 songs. 'Endemoniada' lulls you into a wierd, dark faerieland -- full of atmospherics and barely contained nastiness. And the trip from thereon is something to relish. The three final songs link together with 'Name of the Rose' samples (including the Gregorian Chant scene) and are really quite unlike anything else you are ever likely to hear. There are so many layers to these pieces of music that you simply have to listen time and time again to properly experience them. But it is completely undated -- unlike so much of the 'Gothic' scene music from the 80s. This is probably because it was created 'out of time' and never attempted to fit in. Mc Coy said around 1988 that he'd been listening to nothing but string quartets, and it shows. Put this with the next album 'Elizium' and you have the most constructive, vital and important music of the period. Unimpeachable.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Nephilim - THE Classic 80s album 8 Jan 2003
Format:Audio CD
Back in 1988 chart music had for the most part descended into tiresome, predictable pap, & in the UK we had the added indignity of the appalling formularized singles of Stock, Aitken & Waterman clogging up the music charts - sending any thinking music fan (with a musical pulse) running for cover. It did indeed appear to be the year that the music died...
What an amazing surprise then this album was when it appeared later that year - a musical oasis in a barren desert. But who were The Nephilim? All I had seen was a photo of the band (& decided they looked really cool) & a live review in the press. But this was enough to convince me of their credentials, & to buy their CD - & I most certainly wasn't disappointed!

This was the music dreams (& beautiful nightmares) are made of. Not really heavy metal, but something completely new (to my ears)... an inspired re-invention.
From the slow instrumental build-up of the excellent opening track 'Endemoniada' into something much heavier (& those legendary emotive vocals of the god-like Carl McCoy) I knew I had stumbled onto something very special.
At last I felt someone was making the music that I wanted to listen to; music that spoke to me in grand gestures & had a dark intelligence... almost like a great arthouse movie.
We then hear the two awesome singles 'The Watchman' & 'Moonchild' (the latter which had briefly charted in the summer of 1988), & these, combined with 'Phobia' & the full-on live favourite 'Chord of Souls' concocted to make what must be one of the most thrilling sides (we're talking vinyl here) of a studio album, in my opinion, probably ever produced.
