NEFILIM / Zoon [1996]

Nefilim rose like a crippled phoenix from the ashes of British Goth band Fields of the Nephilim; when they ended Carl McCoy (the guy with the hat) formed Nefilim, and the rest of the guys formed Rubicon.  So what do Nefilim sound like?  Imagine the aforementioned Fields of the Nephilim put through a blender with Ministry and the resulting Pâté moulded into an unrelenting assault of similar sounding riffs.
Gone are the melodic Fields’ musings, replaced with violent scathing esoteric ramblings.  On first listen it's hard to pick out any standout tracks as they all sound the same but the following two tracks will give an idea of what to expect.

Songs of Note: Xodus; Penetration
