“Thrashin’ and groovin’ ”. That sums up Nephilim’s sound in a nutshell. This Northern California heavy metal band would say their musical influences include Pantera, Testament, and Exodus, but Nephilim has a style that is clearly their own. Nephilim’s unique sense of rhythm and killer guitar solos, paired with an instantaneous connection to their audience, make them a metal band you won’t want to miss.
In the fall of 2004, Nephilim burst onto the Sacramento music scene, opening for a national act to a sold out crowd of 1000 and releasing a 3 song EP titled “Tormented Visions”. In the Spring/Summer of 2005, Nephilim settled into its four existing members and their signature sound. They released a 6 track EP, "Mortality", in April 2006 and have a growing and dedicated fan-base. The band continually develops new, innovative material and is committed to perfecting their sound and performing killer live shows. They have had the opportunity to open for metal greats like Testament, Overkill and Deicide, have consistent radio play and have won various “battle style” events. When you listen to this band you will be sure to agree that it is uncanny for four musicians still in their teens to have such a huge, kick-ass sound!
Nephilim is Brian Curtin, lead vocals; Brett Rechtfertig, lead guitar; Britt Green, bass; Brian Gifford, drums.
