New album is going to be called "Curse of the Cwelled". Cover looking dope as well https://www.facebook.com/310398565693901/photos/a.553228071410948.1073741825.310398565693901/841856565881429/?type=1&theater
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.
'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.
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.
