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...
