    I'd agree with TmAYD concerning the drum machine. It isn't so bad when it's just laying the rhythm down, but whenever the pace is picked up and it's "blasting" it does sound bad and makes Forefather's music, which should sound authentic, sound digital instead. Not enough to detract from the riffs, leads and general mood they inspire, but an actual drummer behind a kit would be so much better.

    Feel like Forefather have been completely overtaken by Winterfylleth in recent years. Their refusal to play live has not helped at all in that respect, but equally I feel is their insane usage of a drum machine. Winterfylleth in comparison sound so much more genuine with a real unit behind the drums, whereas Forefather come across very bedroom in comparison.

    wish people would stop referring to forefather as 'viking metal', it's uniquely Englisc! [2] Also the term 'Viking metal' is horrendously gay.

    'Anglo-Saxon' is not a language. Old English is, and 'primitive' seems a strange word to use to describe it, given that you seem to be using it in a derogatory manner. It's no more silly than something like Latin anyway. So far as genre names or tags go, 'Viking metal' and 'Anglo-Saxon metal' are both equally ridiculous.

    Drostanxxx... There's no such thing as Vikings these days either but that still doesn't stop people writing songs about their history and heritage, nor does it make the 'viking metal' tag any less fitting. Forefather play a brand of metal obviously inspired by a lot of the 'viking' metal bands but like a lot of up and coming English bands they choose to sing about the race of people that made England and gave it much of its character and history (much of which is, sadly, barely remembered). I point you to The Steadfast Trust if you think that few people care about the culture, heritage and language of pre-Conquest England.

    It´s good that you can put on a Forefather record after a long time and you know that there are tracks like "Brunanburh", "Steadtfast" and so on, that will blow you away in any mood. I like the new album as well.

    Recent interview with Wulfstan for metalireland.com http://www.metalireland.com/2012/03/04/forefather-interview/ Still think the second half of new one is way stronger than the first. Good album nonetheless

    New album: Last of the Line I'm 4 songs in and I think it's Great Great Great \m/

    February 2012
  • BTsGraveland

    After having listened to 'Last of the Line' in full, I must say: It is a great record. I still think 'Ours is the Kingdom' is Forefather's flawless gem, but the new album is still really good. My favourites off the album would probably be 'By Thy Deeds', 'Up High' and 'The Downfallen'.

  • Asmodeus8797

    I like the newest album, but I still much prefer their earlier material. Still a fine band.

    February 2012
  • steal_briefcase

    Tried the new one again whilst running earlier. Still as disappointing as it was before (and definitely nowhere near as good for running as Steadfast). I really don't see how someone can think that the song writing, or overall quality, is as high. I suppose, according to Riastrad, that makes me a 'teenage metal head'. Haha.

    February 2012
  • BTsGraveland

    I just purchased a copy of the new record (and Steadfast too, fucking finally!) and look forward to listening to the entirety of it. I heard "Up High" on YouTube and that kind of settled it for me instantly - fucking amazing song.
