Excellent, I had heard there was a new album due this year.

I wonder if its going to include summers flame, or if that was just Or even if that's representative of the direction they are going in.

Nah i don't think its a representative of the direction, if i remember rightly that was something one of them had been playing around with since before Steadfast had been recorded. Still they might throw it on there for those who didnt buy it off the internet.

Steadfast is a beast of an album. Absolutely killer folk/black.

Their only album I've heard is Steadfast, I should probably get more so I can join in on the shameless fanboyism. It's a great album, after all.

I've got the new album on now, and it's brilliant. Sounds like one of them's been practising their guitar playing since the last album too, some rather tasty leads going on.

How does it compare to Steadfast on first listens?

On my first listen of this compared to my first listen of Steadfast, I would say I prefer Last of the Line more. However Steadfast really grew on me. So in a way I prefer steadfast more at the moment. But I think this has the potential to grow on me as well, and potentially over take it.
Hope that made some sort of sense.

Musically there's not an awful lot of difference. Possibly more cleans than last time, though it's hard to say for definite, as mentioned a few more fancy guitar leads.It's a pretty solid well written album.

Honestly, on my first listen i'm not enjoying this anywhere near as much as Steadfast. The production sounds a little flat, the intro lead track sounded like a guitar warmup than anything else, the songs just lack that fire heard on Cween of the Mark or Brunanburh, along with sounding nowhere near as epic as Miri It Is or Theodish Belief.

Overall, its good, but i'd definitley rank it below Steadfast and even Ours Is The Kingdom, the two albums i listen to by them.

As it is at the moment, I agree. But I feel it has potential. I think every forefather album has been a grower for me.

edit: but having heard it twice, I have to say, there does seem a lack of memorable hooks.

I don't know why this band isn't more popular - catchy as ****, less cheesy than a lot of other folk metal, unique sound.

Athelstan's solo album is available.
Listening to the sample track it seems like Forefather doing something different. Especially since the tracks with vocals are done by Wulfstan.
