Fields Of The Nephilim have unveiled the details of the Ceremonial Fan Edition of their forthcoming 'Ceromonies' live album and DVD. A unique and highly collectable boxset, it comes packaged in a bespoke and branded handmade wooden box.
The entire boxset has been personally designed, created and overseen by Carl McCoy who states; "The 'Ceromonies' boxset is a commemoration of a particular time in the Nephilim's history, and as such I wanted to ensure it was a chance for our fans to own some truly special artefacts. We are pleased to offer this collector's piece which is the best item of memorabilia we have ever created."
