If you ask me (and why wouldn't you) Forefather have long been the ultimate guilt-free way to enjoy cheesy and emphatically epic metal without having to give up your scruples and go to the Dark side that is power or folk metal. The hyper-melodic leads and soaring cleans are always in direct opposition to guttural rasps, blasting drums and heavy riffing.

Any fans of 'Steadfast' should luxuriate in this like a Viking bathes in the blood of his enemies.

Used to be crazy about this duo. Album is sounding good, but I've grown out of the style a little. Def. check it out if you liked their previous few.

Only a few tracks in but excellent so far. Forefather are the perfect band when you want guilt-free cheese.

Def hearing some Iron Maiden-esque melodies on this album. I'm surprised !J.O.O.E.! would staff pic an album with such a traditional melodic heavy metal sound to it.

Ah why did I put this one off for so long, very very good. Probably not quite up to their last album though.

I didn't think I'd end up the same way but I agree, this is the best I've heard from them. I need to backtrack their discography methinks.

Sweet, took some time for me too. What did you think of their single "Summer's Flame?" Pretty awesome guitar melodies in there.

I really need to listen to something other than "Wudugast" from their earlier discography haha. That song is too good..

Sounds good! Nice instruments used in there for the 'folky' parts.

I haven't heard anything prior to Steadfast, plenty to check out I think.
