Editorial Reviews

Losing the saxophone player from earlier EPs and taking advantage of better budgets and studios, the Nephilim on their first full album established themselves as serious contenders in the goth world. It certainly didn't hurt having signed to Beggars Banquet, home of such acts as Bauhaus and the Cult, though the more obvious source of the Nephilim's sound at this point was the Sisters of Mercy, various attempts to deny it aside. Like Eldritch's crew, the Nephilim fivesome weren't aiming just for the clad-in-black audience, but at being a great group in general; while that goal wasn't quite achieved on Dawnrazor, the band came very close.

This cd should be a mandatory listen for all these "neo-goths" that think that Goth music and culture is all about techno and S&M. This is raw, in your face, Gothic Rock & Roll. The Nephilim still seem to be one of a kind. No other band has used their Spaghetti Western influenced image or sound. The dusty, decaying, floury Cowboy outfits, the slide guitar and slight twang, and those sore throat growls still sound completely fresh today. And what other band has taken on the task of covering an Ennio Morricone theme as they did with Harmonica Man? (Taken from Once Apon A Time In The West) Sure there are a FEW similarities to the Sisters but to say that this is a rip off is simply too narrow minded (not to mention inaccurate) for me to stomach.

Dawnrazor is certainly an excellent power Goth album, and it is the one FotN release where the comparisons to the Sisters make sense; The deep, snarling vocals and throbbing bass guitar were TSOM trademarks to be sure. However, where the Sisters' Floodland was a majestic work of stylized synth-Goth reminiscent of that typical Euro-Victorian aesthetic, Dawnrazor is an original blending of Goth force and the romantic Old West where lawless desperados walk alone. Carl McCoy is that desperado, half-cowboy and half-shaman, roaming the mysterious badlands within his own soul, continually crossing the line between life and death, consciousness and dreams, reality and occult mysticism.
There are any number of hard-hitting rockers here: Laura, Power, Dust, Preacher Man and Reanimator. The centerpiece and crescendo is the towering title track, though in truth the live version on Earth Inferno is probably better. There are also a couple of darkly wistful slower tracks like Vet for the Insane and Secrets - both are strong. Given the quality of all of the tracks, this is a must-have for Goths and those who like their rock with an edge of mystery.
Still this is clearly not Nephilim at their most powerful. At this time, the band and Carl had not fully developed the musical depth, emotional range and sense of grandeur that would become their calling card. I feel very sad for the reviewer who cast them off as a Sisters clone and never looked beyond this album; that review will make him look like a fool to all who know the genre well and understand what FotN would become.

Imagine that the Clint Eastwood character from the Segio Leone westerns was even darker and more sombre. That would be one of the characters in this story of vengence and triumph of one form of evil over another. The music manages to be brooding while maintaining a distinctly western rhythm. The lyrics range from effective to poetic.
The voice of the lead singer is reminiscent of Andy Eldrich and the entire CD can be compared favorably with the Sisters of Mercy's Floodland. From the opening song, a sample from the movie Once Upon A Time In the West, to the final revenge in the last song, the entire CD is haunting and moving.
Don't take this to mean that it's a funeral dirge, it's a well balanced collection of songs that seem to want to become frenzied, but are perfectly reigned in by the band. It's a supernatural spaghetti western put to music. If you like melodies, good guitar work, and haunting lyrics done in a near-Gothic vein, this is worth a listen.

Probably my favorite line of the whole CD appears in "Vet for the Insane--the flowers in your kitchen, they weep for you, I'm gonna shred them all to pieces, like I did to you, relax" Ahhh the majesty of Carl McCoy's growl is enough to make me relax while he dons the claws! I highly recommend this CD as a jumping off point for new Neph fans. This CD was their tribute to spagetti westerns. If I had to catagorize this music (and I do so hate to label things), I would say Gothabilly. Just buy it and you won't be disappointed!

Fields of Nephilim's first CD is as original as anything ever heard before, and 16 years later it sounds as brilliant as ever.The Morricone touches are a real treat and their unique sound may be compared with others but can never be a good as them. I originally bought the Revelations compilation as my first Nephilim CD and immediatally had to go back and buy them all after hearing the title track live on that CD. This band has had a huge influence on me,I even bought the controversial "Fallen" CD as well as the later Nefilim "Zoon", Rubicon "What starts ends" and Last Rites "Guided by Light" disks all by ex-Fields of Nephilim members.This is a highly influential band. Discover them and enjoy.

This album is great it is a great collection of the early works of this band and the genre of gothic rock for when it was originally released. When this collection was originally reased it was of corse on vynal and there is some produstion quality to it that makes that easy to tell. Of course I have never been one to judge that, I kind of like the raw sound that allot of the early goth had. Not to denote any of the newer goth or ninties goth it's all good, I love it when you can tell that a band is doing something for the art and for the exression and not for fame and money but because this is "this is what they want to do" slef expression. If you are discovering gothic rock or if you are an elder goth that wants your old vynal on cd this is a good album to be introduced to or restablish it with your gothic collection.
