The music of Fields of the Nephilim incorporates gothic rock, psychedelia and heavy metal. The seminal band draw influence from spiritualism and magic, with songs that conjure imagery from HP Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos, chaos magic and the mystic arts practised by Aleister Crowley. Drawing on such hard rock sounds and themes with powerful magical potency, resulting in a band that produces dark and uncompromising music that thrills fans around the world.
Taking their name from the Biblical race of gigantic angel-human hybrids, the band was started by vocalist Carl McCoy. Combining his love of Spaghetti Westerns and his passion for the occult, McCoy forged a band whose image and music was like no other.
