Official Biography
NFD have a distinguished rock background. They comprise Tony Pettitt, the Fields Of The Nephilim founder-bassist, who teamed up with vocalist/guitarist Peter Bob White and drummer Simon Rippin when the Nephilim reunion floundered in 2002. Simon was previously in both The Nefilim and Fields of the Nephilim line-ups (but he left the band), as well as together with Bob in Sensorium. 

For live gigs they bring in two extra guitarists, Chris Milden and James Mcilroy (Cradle of Filth) and Luca Mazzucconi as the new drummer.

Their Nephilim roots gave them immediate attention from that bands still devoted following, but press reviews surpassed any casual goodwill. NFDs No Love Lost simply devastates and lays waste to every other gothic wannabe band of the last decade. Some of the best gothic rock music produced since the late 80s was Rock Sounds verdict. Metal Hammer said: An absolute must-have. And Germanys Sonic Seducer called it Possibly THE gothrock album of the year. The German press in particular have got behind the band with regular features in Zillo, Orkus & Sonic Seducer magazines.

NFD have performed at numerous festivals, both in the UK (Whitby headline, Dark City, Witchfest) and Germany (Mera Luna, Zillo, Wave-Gotik Treffen, Burgnachte, Herbsnachte) and toured UK & Europe on their own and with Mortiis, Umbro Et Imago & The Mission.
