This CD is for those of you who enjoy early raw 80s goth. This is the Nephilim before they discovered keyboards and fancy sound making devices. Driving guitar riffs, sax (yes they did have a sax player originally) banging drums, deep growly vocals - everything you expect from Goth Rock really.
I've had all the tracks on record for years and getting this on CD was fantastic, although I must admit that I have Buring the Fields on CD and the other tracks are on Dawnrazer now - but you get the complete version of Laura II here and the version of Power here is the second attempt at the song.
All in all - FANTASTIC!!!!
Can't wait for the new LP - if it ever comes out!

BE WARNED, the mastering on this CD is absolutely atrocious - it's hard to fathom that somebody could actually have listened to it and thought "yeah, that'll do"... "Power", especially, sounds like it is playing on a tinny little speaker in another room.

To be fair, these early Nephs recordings are pretty lo-fi Bauhaus knock offs to start off with, a far cry from the extravagant, perfectionist and technically accomplished production on their later albums... but they weren't as bad as this CD would have you believe.

I would say ONLY purchase this if you have the facilities and the inclination to do your own remastering... the songs do polish up alright with the application of some serious EQ and a limiter, but otherwise I would say make do with the passable versions of some of the tracks on the Dawnrazor CD.

this cd compiles the "nephs" first 2 twelve inch singles with the additional track "return" which had previously only been available on the continent...
this serves as a history lesson to all those interested in the UK goth scene & its nice to be able to to put away those 12" singles into storage
classsic uk goth - it still sounds as good today

All you die-hard Psychonauts (nephilim fans to the uninitated) will have drooled all over your keyboard at this, their first release in 10 years. Well....save your saliva for the (supposed) new studio album thats already 2 years late. This is 2 EP's (Burning In The Fields from '85, and Returning To Gehenna-an Italian only release-from '86) cobbled together and stuck on a CD. Having listened to it umpteen times, I'm more than dissapointed. Nowhere near as good as 'Elizium' and barely worth the cash. Come on chaps....dont keep us waiting for new material.
