FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM Genesis & Revelation Jungle Records (2006)
This 3 disc set (2 CDs and DVD) contains everything a goth rocker needs, and probably more too.
Disc 1 is studio rarities, opening with the Powered Up mix of 'Power', which nods heavily at The Damned, mixing early punk rockíníroll zest with MCA era gothic.
Prime FotN continues with more remixex, some 1985 demos and a track from their 1997 reunion. Dark moody goth rock cum metal at its best.
Disc 2 is a live show from Denmark, 2000. The crowd love it, with their opening sound mixing a dark heavy gothic U2 with Southern Death Cult.
With the classic 'Moonchild' included, itís a rare live performance worth shelling out for.
The third disc, a DVD, contains a mixture of promo videos and live tracks, with a 1998 interview as a bonus; it shows the band in their prime, highlighting their deserved appeal.
For a rarities set itís more accessible than most, enjoyable and for the fan essential, although a little more packaging would have been nice - thereís no sleevenotes to speak of.
If youíre new to the Nephilim itís still enjoyable but not the best of introductions. For fans and collectors it really hits the spot though.
