Default Fields Of The Nephilim

I already know a couple of members don't like them but they are one of my all time favourite bands and although they never achieved huges success, they are highly influential and many artist have quoted them as influences. Their first E.P and album had some great moments but the release of their second full length The Nephilim is wher they really hit their stride. Combining trademark goth vocals with some intricate guitar rythmn work underpinning the main riffs and Noddy's superlative drumming. This track is from the aforementioned The Nephilim. Check out the drumming that kicks in just after two minutes.


They have an interesting back catalogue with splits, side projects and reforming with a couple of albums that are very heavy. This is from frontman Carl McCoy. I'm not as big a fan of Nefilim, but he is always interesting nevertheless:

Despite their spaghetti-Western goth look O.o they're a pretty good band. Elizium is probably my favourite album, but the other two preceding it are solid as well.

I was hoping a few of the prog heads might check out Elizium due to it's Pink Floyd connections. 'At The Gates Of Silent Memory' is as influential to Ambient Metal as the cues it takes from 70's prog.

I like them but sometimes their music feels under done.

OK...so I know you've been raving about this group for a while, but I just heard a couple songs today (your vids don't work anymore BTW)..."At the Gates of Silent Memory" and their version of "In the Year 2525" (I actually looked for this one, since I just found out they covered that song today). I'd definitely be interested in hearing more...so do I start with The Nephilim or Elizium? Or something else?

Sometimes it sounds like they're building into a super progressive gothy rock wankfest and then don't. Shiva instantly comes into mind. There is something very grandiose and epic about that track and yet its such a compact song that it doesn't quite feel like complete enough. On the other hand you have songs like Endemoniada which play out their epicness.

The Nephilim is their 2nd album and the better to start with. I will try and fix the vids. Interest at last lol

Yet another band in the long, long list of bands I've been meaning to check out for ages. Since I usually hear them mentioned in the same breath as Clan of Xymox I'm pretty sure I'd like them. I'd love to hear more.
