  FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM SIGN WITH EMI, SELL OUT BRIXTON ACADEMY PLUS NEW ALBUM AND DVD
6th October 2011

fields of the nephilim



EMI Label Services are proud to announce a new partnership with legendary gothic icons Fields Of The Nephilim to release 'Ceromonies', their long-awaited live album and DVD. The Europe-wide deal marks the next chapter in the band's evolution, and heralds a new dawn for their legions of fans around the world.

Fields of the Nephilim formed in 1984 and quickly rose to prominence with singles such as 'Power' and 'Preacher Man' and their debut album 'Dawnrazor' which was released in 1987 on Beggars Banquet. Subsequent albums 'The Nephilim' and 'Elizium' saw the band develop their trademark sound, a huge multi-layered tapestry of dark, brooding instrumentation crowned with frontman Carl McCoy's deep mystical incantations.

Hugely influential on a whole generation of industrial, Metal and gothic bands, Carl McCoy expanded their musical template with the release of the album 'Zoon' in 1996 under the name The Nefilim; an album which set the benchmark for the many black and death Metal artists who followed in its wake. Nine years later Fields Of The Nephilim returned with the critically acclaimed album 'Mourning Sun', a powerful and complex work that saw them headline festivals across Europe.

In 2008 they played two sold out shows at London's Shepherds Bush Empire which were filmed and are now being released in early 2012 as 'Ceromonies', a double CD live album and breathtaking DVD.

Fields Of The Nephilim make their long-awaited return to the British stage on October 22nd with a sold out concert at London's Brixton Academy alongside The Mission. Further live shows will be announced for 2012 in support of 'Ceromonies'.


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.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



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.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
