Welcome

elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time. You can find links to those, as well as a few other important links associated with Digital Meltd0wn in the menu bar above.

Fields Of The Nephilim - Elizium




Fields of the Nephilim, headed by vocalist Carl McCoy created some amazing music in the late 80's / early 90s. Their earlier stuff started out with more of a goth rock sound, but the band gradually eveolved into something quite different. Moody, atmospheric, at times quiet and subdued, enigmatic, dark, spiritual. There are so many adjectives to describe their sound. Dressed in dusters with tattered hats and boots, dusty and pale, these guys emulated old spaghetti western characters onstage. This studio release is very spiritual in nature. There are soaring epic moments, love songs, samples of Aleister Crowley and fantastic musicianship.
This CD is one reason I bought my first CD player!
Let me know in the comments if you enjoy it, as I have more Nephilim to share...
