  FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM 'PENETRATION' VIDEO ONLINE NOW. NEW RELEASE DATE FOR 'CEROMONIES'
17th February 2012

fields of the nephilim



Fields Of The Nephilim have unveiled the first track from their forthcoming 'Ceromonies' project. 'Penetration' is a dazzling assault on the senses; a ferocious blast of machine-gun strobes and billowing dry-ice that switches between vivid colours and intense monochromatic flashes, set to a precise, brutal and ritualistic soundtrack.

A demonstration of their dark power which first featured on the 'Zoon' album, 'Penetration' is an example of the Nephilim at their most extreme, a track which welds the jackhammer rhythms and guttural roar of that album's industrial vision to the chiming guitars and dramatic melodies for which they are most widely known.

Whilst other tracks such as the elegaically beautiful epic 'Wail Of Sumer/And There Will Your Heart Be Also' from the 'Elizium' period demonstrate the softer, more atmospheric moments in their canon, and the likes of 'Moonchild', 'Preacher Man' and 'Psychonaut' represent some of the band's biggest hits. 'Penetration' is a unexpected shot of adrenaline straight to the heart.

Long-awaited and much anticipated by the Nephilim's faithful fans, 'Ceromonies' will now be released on March 19th. This new date comes after an inferno which engulfed frontman Carl McCoy's studio as he put the final touches to the project. With the damage contained and all 'Ceromonies' complete, it emerges from the fire into the world on March 19th.

A special limited-edition 'Collector's Box' of the entire 'Ceromonies' project containing the double-CD live album, the live concert DVD, double-vinyl pressing and an exclusive array of Nephilim merchandise and artefacts, presented in a beautifully designed and branded wooden box, will be available to pre-order shortly via the band's website – www.fields-of-the-nephilim.com.

The release of 'Ceromonies' closes the chapter on Fields Of The Nephilim's past and signals their reactivation as a potent force to come. With European performances confirmed this summer including a prestigious mainstage slot at Germany's massive M'era Luna festival preceding headliners Placebo, and exciting live announcements soon to be made, the Nephilim will be performing a new set of classics and surprises.

'Ceromonies' was recorded over two sell-out shows at London's Shepherds Bush Empire and features songs from all stages of Fields Of The Nephilim's career from their earliest recordings such as 'Trees Come Down' to their most recent studio album 'Mourning Sun'.

Beautifully edited and directed by Carl McCoy at his visual production company, Sheer Faith, the DVD is a striking example of why this most elusive and mysterious of bands has been revered for so long and represents a breath-taking document of the band's musical dominance over Metal, gothic and industrial music for the past three decades.

The double-CD set - only the second live album the band have ever released and a perfect companion to its live predecessor, 1991's legendary 'Earth Inferno' - is a sensory treat; the enormous sound and brooding instrumentation of the band bursting forth from the speakers, crowned with McCoy's haunting incantations and tour-de-force vocals.

'Ceromonies' is released as a 3-disc digipack, featuring the double CD live album and DVD, a two-disc vinyl album, a digital download album featuring the bonus track 'Last Exit For The Lost' and as a limited-edition 'Collector's Box' featuring all of the above and a wealth of extra artefacts.

Fields of The Nephilim will be announcing details of brand new studio recordings later this year.


WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.
