Formed in 1984, Fields of the Nephilim is the creation of vocalist and front man Carl McCoy. Their third highly acclaimed album "Elizium", released by Beggars Banquet in 1990. Recorded and produced by Pink Floyd engineer Andy Jackson. Elizium is one of their most beautiful albums and considered by many to be their best. As The Quietus wrote, "it was both their most accessible and their most experimental work, concluding and consolidating the Nephilim's five-year shamanic journey. Lead-off single and opening track 'For Her Light' featured a lengthy mid-section that anticipated the apocalyptic post-rock of Godspeed! You Black Emperor (unsurprisingly, it failed to chart), and the album featured some of the band's hardest rock in the wahoverload of 'Submission,' as well as further incorporating dance elements - more successfully and organically than many of their peers, it must be said - on second single 'Sumerland'." Louder Sound also called "Sumerland" their "greatest ever track".
