The Nephilim is the second studio album by Fields of the Nephilim, was released in September 1988 by Situation Two/Beggars Banquet Records. The record debuted at number 12 in the UK album charts.

The album was recorded in The Justice Rooms, a former courthouse in England’s Somerset countryside where defendants who were sentenced to death were hanged on site. “The place had a really cool vibe,” recalls bassist Tony Pettitt.

The Nephilim’s opening track, “Endemoniada," shares its name with a 1968 Mexican horror film, and features a man growling “penitentziagitae!,” sampled from Ron Perlman's hunchback character, Salvatore, in The Name of the Rose. The album's top-charting single, "Moonchild," shares its name with Aleister Crowley's novel. The lyrics for "Moonchild" and "Last Exit for the Lost" reference H. P. Lovecraft's character Cthulhu.
