Iconic gothic-rock troupe Fields of the Nephilim have announced their legendary Ceromonies concert series will finally receive the deluxe digital treatment: DVD chronicles of the Nephilim's recent live shows are tentatively slated for release early next year. Band founder/frontman Carl McCoy already became part of genre history this fall via the long-awaited DVD of Richard Stanley's Hardware (in which he plays the legendary 'Zone Tripper'), and now he's unveiled some details from the upcoming Ceromonies Live release, as well as a preview clip from the DVD... hit that jump and check it out!
The Ceromonies concert footage, captured from a two-part show named Ad Mortem and Ad Vitem, documents the Nephilim and their fans as they 'explore new territories and reach new realms in the band's evolution.' Most of the footage is taken from two performances at London's famous Shepherd's Bush auditorium on July 12th and 13th; according to the mysterious McCoy, these performances showcase a major turning point in the band's history, and the project will showcase “the future of our past.”
The band will announce formats and release dates for Ceromonies Live very soon (looks like a DVD/CD set is in the works for first quarter 2010), while they continue to work on material for their still-unnamed forthcoming studio album.
