So, a bit of a surprise notification this morning - Prophecy has been released on iTunes for download, with the CD, etc coming very shortly. Obvs, immediate download necessary, and it's fab.

I've had a stab at the lyrics, as they're MUCH clearer now. Thoughts?

PROPHECY LYRICS
===============
Yeah!
Let the fire burn.
Let the fire breathe, like a thousand suns, into eternity.
Burn. Burn. I will burn.
Come on. Bring it down. Yeah.
Feel the spirit rise.
Illuminate as one.
Look into my eyes.
Just let it come.
Burn. Burn. You will burn.
To late to know. No one there.
Prophecy, what I say: "You're not there".
Prophecy, all I say: "You're not there".
.... (There's some spoken words here - can't make it out yet)
Burn. Burn. Ahhhh.
Let the fire burn.
Prophecy, what I say: "Follow me!".
Prophecy, what I say: "All will burn".

And here a promising statement from Rob Ferguson this morning on facebook:

Rob Ferguson - quote:


" Iconic gothic-rock legends Fields Of The Nephilim return today with their first new music since 2005’s ‘Mourning Sun’ album. As its title implies, ‘Prophecy’ is a taste of what’s to come, an early indication of the labours undertaken in the creation of a new Nephilim universe.

Reminiscent of the earliest days of Fields of the Nephilim, yet coursing with the vitality of a band at the peak of their powers, ‘Prophecy’ is a ferocious rock anthem that roars with dark energy and heralds a new dawn for the followers of the Nephilim. Their patience will be well rewarded over the coming months.

‘Prophecy’ is available from today on iTunes and can be heard in full HERE. https://youtu.be/_0e1WB3cfbg

A physical release on both CD and vinyl, containing exclusive artwork and bonus material, will follow in due course. Information will be posted on www.fields-of-the-nephilim.com soon.

‘Prophecy’ unlocks the doors. What’s to come will fulfil the faith of those who wait.

This is just the beginning. "


*cthulhu* *cthulhu* *cthulhu*

Drums ARE Lees samples! *whistle* No mention of Tony and a sprinkling of Gav guitar. Not the strongest and definitely not like classic Fields songs. Seems as though this has been put together in rush and on iTunes!!! Really make us wonder if there are a finance crisis within the band or member has money problem? Good to have something new and not a bad effort although obviously not a BAND effort. Tony not on record is small disappointing but not surprise regarding rumours of late. :? :wink:

Right, copyright on itunes is mentioned to "sacred symphony" - So, maybe Carl is free to realese without
any labels. Hope so.

Yes, exactly Carl is free to release without any major record company. Times change and the behaviour of listeners as well, records sell less, artists have to be creative and innovative if they want to survive. It's good to see that Fields of the Nephilim manage to do that.

Has anyone managed to translate the calligraphy in the video on youtube?

There are 2 flashes at 3:50 and 3:53

The first one, I've not managed to work out all of the intertwined words yet, but looks like:

"If you are human this (or his)
Humanity
?? ?? never there
?? in the arena
Lights the welcome"

where ?? are words I can't decypher

Second one, I'm pretty confident is:

"To the dark
from which there is no coming back."


Any thoughts??

"If you are human, this is humanity"

"In the arena of light
We welcome your fate"

"We shall crush you down to the point, where there is no coming back" :?:



Old stuff... http://echoes.devin.com/zoon.html

Carl with the glove at the end taken from the short clip published on the official site... 15 years ago or so...

Guess the new song is old too, mostly recorded by Carl himself (simple riffing). It's a cool track though ;)

1984 - George Orwell - Chapter 2 « What happens to you here is for ever. Understand that in advance. We shall crush you down to the point from which there is no coming back. Things will happen to you from which you could not recover, if you lived a thousand years. »

It all makes sense now! (Ish )
I was sure I remembered a Nephilim lyric about humanity but it was late and well, Zoon isn't my favourite so I'm not surprised it didn't come to mind.
I did recognise the Orwell quote though and hoped the humanity bit would add something to it, be more profound, or at least an enigmatic hint of something yet to come. Sadly not. it's all just re-hashed old stuff :cry:

I want to love it but only like it.
Only reason being, like the whole of mourning sun, it's as if a lead guitar track has been omitted from the mix.
These songs need a lead guitar!
Power chords don't cut it with a bar set so high by the Wright-Yates legacy.

Yes, you hear it at the start of Zoon on the "Still Life" track.

What I'd like to know: Is this really a finished track or a demo?

8) That's a coherent possibility.

Now here's another try :

PROPHECY lyrics

Let the Firebird, let the Firebuick
like a thousand suns, into eternity
Burn ! Bird ! I will burn
Come on ! Bring it out, yeah !

I feel the spirit rise, illuminate as one,
look into my eyes/ice just to let it come
Burn ! Burn ! You are mad
Today, tomorrow no one there
Prophecy what I see you're not there
Prophecy all I see/say you're not there

Burn ! Burn !
Burn ! All, let the Firebird

Prophecy what I see
I am with you
Prophecy what I see
I will burn

I can't shake off the nagging thought that Prophecy is Red 777 v. 2.0 every single time I listen to it :D I think it's good, though!

It is growing on me .

Good call :idea: I didn't notice before, but I think you're spot on. Which might explain why, ironically, it reminds me of NFD. Maybe I should have thought of Sensorium right away. *whistle*

Also, I'm beginning to wonder whether we can expect any release anytime soon at all. If this is only a demo, has anything actually been recorded in the studio? And if the "pre-release sampler" (a CD-R of the Prophecy demo?) just didn't get delivered in time for the tour, why has it not been put up for sale by now? I haven't given much to any such announcements since the 90s, but when I heard that the sampler was to be offered right after Berlin, I did believe this.

Rob Ferguson put it well: "The Nephilim machine moves in mysterious ways" *cthulhu* Not so sure about the second part of this sentence, however, according to which it does so "intentionally" :?

Whatever, as long as the shows remain as good as on this tour, I'll happily be party to the carnage :mrgreen: And there's always hope for some setlist variation :P Plus confidence in Pete's output *notworthy*
