Biography

Like lions among men, THE FIRSTBORN come forth as a true force of nature within a movement where mindless, continuous repetition of the same old formulas is often mistaken for talent. With its roots grounded deep within the Black Metal movement of the first half of the ‘90s, the band soon revealed an immense urge to detach themselves from the multitudes of clones that by then began invading the underground. Towards the turn of the millennium, already with two albums under their belts, they sharpened their senses and underwent transformation. The maturation took five years, but eventually saw them define their own identity and embrace a path they could call their own. In the search for enlightenment, they took, and keep taking, steady steps in their ongoing search for perfection.

The new album «Lions Among Men», fourth in a career that has seen the band perform throughout their whole country, as well as occasionally playing abroad, follows 2008’s critically acclaimed «The Noble Search». In its essence, this material represents the ultimate stride forward in the path treaded by THE FIRSTBORN since the band’s inception in the mid-nineties. Focusing on refinement and evolution, instead of the metamorphosis that characterised the transition between each previous album, «Lions Among Men» elevates the band to a higher level, in intensity, atmosphere and songwriting – they managed to compose an album that is a complete experience and in which all the elements fall into place.
