The Nefilim (or simply Nefilim) was a Carl McCoy project formed after the disbanding of Fields of the Nephilim. It featured McCoy on vocals, Paul Miles on guitar, Simon Rippin on drums and Cian Houchin on bass. Nefilim released one album, Zoon (1996), which was more influenced by Death metal and industrial than McCoy's previous releases with the Fields of the Nephilim, though similar themes of mysticism are prevalent, seen in songs like "Pazuzu (Black Rain)," which refers to the Assyro-Babylonian god also known as "king of the demons."

Rippin and Miles would later go on to form Sensorium, while Houchin would go on to form Saints of Eden. McCoy returned to his previous band, Fields of the Nephilim.
