Fields of the Nephilim formed in 1984. Their name was drawn from the Biblical legends of the Nephilim, who were fallen angels. In 1985 their debut EP ‘Burning The Fields’ was issued on their own Tower label through Jungle. Interest worldwide followed, and the ‘Returning To Gehenna’ EP was issued in Italy. The following year they signed to Beggars Banquet, issuing their first single, ‘Power’.
The band soon established their own, individual image, superficially a pastiche of spaghetti western chic, but the essence behind the image of dust and death was more enduring and reflected the Nephilim's fascination with the darker side of life. Touring the UK constantly, they built up an army of followers.
In 1987, the bands first album, DAWNRAZOR was released and made a big impact on the polls in the music press. They then dominated the indie charts for many years. The singles ‘Preacher Man’, ‘Blue Water’, ‘Moonchild’ (1988) and ‘Psychonaut’ (1989) all hit the top of the indie chart and went Top 40 UK national chart.
Their second album, THE NEPHILIM in 1988 entered the UK Album Chart at number 12 and also established them around the world, whilst their many performances became spectacular events. Then 1990's weighty ELIZIUM, the third studio album, widened their audience even further. EARTH INFERNO, a live at Brixton Academy double album followed, also charting high in the UK top forty.
In 1991, the group performed their last two sold-out gigs, at the Town and Country Club (now The Forum) in London and split up. Carl McCoy continued with a heavier-sounding project, Nefilim, while the rest of the band issued two albums with a new vocalist under the name Rubicon. Their audience however, never went away. Carl explains; “We had never had a break in our career, so we needed one to pursue our own separate ideas. The reformation is inevitable, really, because it's unfinished business. We owe it to the fans too.”
After much speculation, in the summer of 2000 Fields Of The Nephilim headlined four major European festivals, playing in front of 60,000 fans, and released their first single for a decade, ‘One More Nightmare’. In 2001, an album FROM GEHENNA TO HERE was compiled from their debut 1985-86 EPs.
The single ‘From The Fire’ in September 2002 reached the giddy heights of the bottom of the UK national charts (no. 62), and was followed by the new studio album ‘FALLEN’ in October 2002.
