FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM
FROM GEHENNA TO HERE
Q MAGAZINE


Though there's room for everybody in life's rich musical pageant, most people with ears sensibly drew the line at Fields Of The Nephilim. An amalgam of their self-financed 1985 debut EP, Burning The Fields, and the following year's Italian-only release, Returning To Gehenna, this nine-track collection begs the obvious question: how did they ever get off the ground? Aligned to a laughably feeble production, Carl McCoy's ludicrous, bowel-deep croon and dark mutterings carry all the menace of a pantomime villain in woolly pink tights. With time, they did improve. But not much.
