"Let it spill from my mouth, sweet nectar for a thousand young..."
—Fields of the Nephilim, "Psychonaut"

Fields of the Nephilim are an English Goth Rock band formed in the early '80s by lead singer Carl McCoy, saxophonist Gary Whisker, bassist Tony Petitt, guitarist Paul Wright, and drummer Alexander "Nod" Wright. While they never achieved mainstream success, they have a devoted following and have been highly influential on artists within the Goth Rock and Gothic Metal genres, as well as artists completely outside of the "goth" label, with Nergal of Black / Death Metal band Behemoth being a one-time live member. Their last album, Mourning Sun, was released in 2005 with a completely new line-up. They seldom tour these days, mostly playing one-off shows and festivals in Europe.
