Fields of the Nephilim is a gothic rock band, active throughout the 1980s.
They formed in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, UK in 1984. Carl McCoy, Gary Whisker, Tony Pettit and brothers Paul Wright and Alexander 'Nod' Wright were the starting lineup.

Peter Yates joined by the time of their first release ‘’Dawnrazor" album, replacing Gary Whisker, which contributed to first EP "Burning The Fields’’.

The band's name refers to magnetic fields and the biblical Nephilim race.
Sound of Fields of the Nephilim in the 80's was innovative in the gothic scene, incorporating heavy metal elements to make a hard, bass and guitar driven sound underneath McCoy's growled vocals.

Lyrically, Fields of the Nephilim incorporated mystical themes, especially relating to Sumerian Mythology, Hebrew Mysticism, and Aleister Crowley.
