On disc: Fields Of The Nephilim

- Fallen - Amir Djawadi - 3 stars


(Jungle Rec. - 2002)

I guess that Fields Of The Nephilim everybody knows... Com' on, don't disappoint me! But have you thought that the guys are around for such a long time? Their debut album Burning The Fields was released 20 years ago! As a kind of celebration of their 20th anniversary the British present their 2002 release under the simple title Fallen.
After a long and redundant intro 9 dark tracks incl. From The Fire and One More Nightmare follows. Gothic songs crawl out of the speakers, nothing which really thrills me... Dark and monotonous... The songs don't vary much and so only the breaks between the songs mark the beginning of a new track.
It's a matter of taste, for the ones who are into this sounds it might be interesting, but personally I prefer a little more creativity. Nothing to say against gothic attitude and dark ambiance...

3 stars
